A more recent study by the National Research Council of Canada in association with the Canadian Polyisocyanurate Council (Mukhopadhyaya et al.
The flame retardant TCPP, which is a possible carcinogen, is often used in polyurethane and polyisocyanurate foam.
The most common and current choices are polyisocyanurate board (roughly R-6 per inch), which is compatible with all membranes, and polystyrene foam (approximate R-values range from 3.
The Modular Box range is based on LPCB (Loss Prevention Certification Board) approved KS1100 CS wall and ceiling panels, manufactured from polyisocyanurate (KR) and conforming to the highest industry standards for energy efficiency and fire safety.
The panels usually consist of plywood, oriented strandboard, or drywall glued and sandwiched around a core consisting of expanded polystyrene, polyurethane, polyisocyanurate, compressed wheat straw, or epoxy.
The solution to on-demand foam fabrication for pipe insulation as well as many other uses has been advancements in the CNC-automated foam cutting machines that enable fabricators to quickly and efficiently trim and shape a wide variety of foam-type materials, including the rigid PU polyisocyanurate (PIR), Foamglas, mineral wool and calcium silicate.
If you research the manufacture of polyisocyanurate building materials you will note that various MSDS sheets are clear that chemicals used in the process can leach, are carcinogens or have other hazards they present, asserts Harbor Homes official Matthew Batson.
Arkema's new blowing agents are also HFOs, and are intended to replace hydrofluorocarbons in polyurethane and polyisocyanurate insulating foams.
Dabco TMR catalysts used alone or in conjunction with PUR catalysts to customize reactivities of polyisocyanurate foam.
