Polyurethane Expandable Foam - Use Of
Is it acceptable to use fire rated polyurethane expandable foam?
An organization should be cautious in its decision to use fire rated polyurethane expandable foam. The product must be fire rated for the application, which includes the fire rating duration (1, 2, etc. hour fire rating), the building type (classified for commercial and industrial use is acceptable, but not for residential use), and must be UL rated. When used, the organization is to maintain a copy of the product specification (preferably a used container with a remnant of the product) for surveyor review and inspection.
