Technical Documents

The Canadian Urethane Foam Contractors Association (CUFCA) publishes a number of technical documents to assist design professionals and building owners on a wide variety of issues related to the use of SPF in buildings.

The Technical Committee of CUFCA includes individuals from the industry including contractors, manufacturers, building code officials, research institutions and building consultants to produce these bulletins.

Foam Comparison and Colour Chart of all Approved Medium Density Sprayed Polyurethane Foams in Canada

CUFCA, with the help of its Technical Committee and Board of Directors, has put together a Medium Density Sprayed Polyurethane Foam Closed Cell Foam Comparison and Colour Chart for the use of the industry to ensure accurate and factual information on typical physical properties and R values of various manufacturers products.

The accompanying colour chart provides a visual reference of all the approved colours of these products in Canada to provide building officials, designers and home owners with a reference to identify what product is being installed in their building.

These documents will continually be updated as products change or new products are added.
