As our customer, you don't only get access to the industry's best spray polyurethane foam and installation equipment. You also get access to training and support from NCFI. Our experienced technicians are skilled at explaining SPF concepts, so that you can work more quickly with increased safety while doing a better job for your customer. One of the many training tools that we offer is a video webinar on ventilation techniques.

Because SPF is sprayed, during the installation process the air becomes filled with SPF chemicals. While the use of personal protective equipment is an important part of safely installing SPF, it isn't the only part. 

Limiting access to the building during installation is important, and ventilating the space also helps to ensure that chemicals don't build up. The training and support from NCFI on ventilation techniques covers both containment and mechanical ventilation systems. Given that maintaining workplace safety is an important part of your responsibilities under OSHA regulations, this information can help to limit your legal exposure.

Ventilating the space isn't as simple as opening a window. SPF installation parameters vary from building to building. They are also dependent on the type of spray gun you use, your air flow settings and even where you work in a given room as air flow characteristics change.

To learn more about how to safely apply SPF insulation in interior areas, take advantage of our webinar. It is one of many pieces of training and support from NCFI.
