Get HFC Compliant with HFO Foam
What is HFO Foam?
Many states now require spray foam applicators to use closed cell foam that does not contain HFCs. HFCs release gases that negatively impact Earth’s atmosphere, ultimately contributing to global warming. Spray Foam made with the chemical hydrofluoroolefin (HFO). Spray foam that contains HFO blowing agents are non-flammable, are low GWP, and have no Ozone Depletion Potential – ultimately preventing heat from being trapped in Earth’s atmosphere. Many uses of polyurethane and adhesives now require HFO.
Who Needs HFO Foam?
In 2020, the Clean Air Act established SNAP to begin phasing out ozone-depleting substances. Some closed cell spray foams fell in that category. As a result, some states began requiring HFCs to change over to the use of spray foam with HFO blowing agents. As of October 2022, the EPA does not require the use of these products so each state sets their own regulations.
HFC bans in are currently in effect for following states: California, Colorado, Delaware, Maine, Maryland, Massachusetts, New Jersey, New York, Rhode Island, Washington, Vermont, Virginia.
HFC bans are nearing approval in the following states: Connecticut, Hawaii, New Mexico, Oregon, Pennsylvania, Texas.
Types of HFO Compliant Foam
Many states are now requiring that closed cell foam meet a compliance standard called HFO (hydroflouroolefin).
UPC 2.0 HFO CLOSED CELL SPRAY FOAM
UPC 2.0 HFO is a two-component, medium density, one to one by volume spray applied polyurethane foam system. UPC 2.0 HFO system consists oof an “A” component (ISO) and a blended “B” component (RESIN) in separate drums. UPC 2.0 HFO contains no ozone-depleting chemicals and is based on hydroflouroolefin (HFO) technology.
