History of Spray Foam Insulation - Written By Superior Insulation, Your Friendly Neighborhood Spray Foam Contractor In Buffalo, NY.

A History of Spray Foam Insulation

In 1937 Otto Bayer, a German Chemist was credited with the invention of polyurethane.  He discovered that mixing small volumes of chemical substances can create a dry foam material. 

In the 1940s it became more popular and was used by the US Military in airplanes.  In 1979 polyurethane began being used as a building insulation. Spray polyurethane has since been improved upon and comes in a range of densities and cell structure. 

Low density spray foam is referred to as open cell and high density spray foam is referred to as closed cell. Today polyurethane is used for many different applications, soles in shoes, car cushions, in packaging materials and in homes as insulation.  Superior Insulation uses a water-based spray polyurethane foam.  A two component high pressure system is used to install the quick expanding spray foam.
