About Flame Retarded Systems
Flame Retarded Systems
VERSI-FOAM® is available in a system that contains additional flame retardants. This formula is classified as Class I in accordance with ASTM E-84 with a 25 Flame Spread and a 225 Smoke Developed Rating. This means that the foam is flame resistant, it is not fire proof. These systems are suitable for use in inhabited buildings, including residential applications or any applications in which flammability is a concern. The density of the foam is approximately 2 pounds per cubic foot. It is 97% closed cell and has an R-value of 6 per inch. It has an expansion rate of six times its original volume and is tack free in 30 to 45 seconds.
The Class I system is available in two sizes. The VERSI-FOAM® System 15 Class I is packaged in one carton and includes the two chemical components, the patented U-CONTROL gun attached to two 7-1/2 foot hoses and ten multipurpose mixing nozzles. The system weighs 39 pounds. In theoretical coverage, it will yield 180 square feet at a 1" thickness, or 15 cubic feet.
The VERSI-FOAM® System 50 Class I is packaged in two cartons, each weighing approximately 60 pounds. The system is complete with the two chemical components, the patented U-CONTROL dispensing gun attached to two 15 foot hoses and ten multipurpose mixing nozzles. Theoretically, the kit will yield 600 square feet at a 1" thickness, or 50 cubic feet.
The System 15 Class I and the System 50 Class I can be shut down and used on another day. However, it is very strongly recommended that the systems are used at least once per week.
