Tanks and Vessels
Spray Polyurethane Foam (SPF) can be used in a variety of different applications, one of those is tanks and vessels. SPF can be a solution for cold vessel insulation for products such as wine, chemicals, and soft drinks. It is excellent to store products that need controlled temperatures. SPF systems are perfect for these type insulations because of the superior durability and ease of application.
Spray Polyurethane Foam can be used for hot/warm vessel insulation. If there is a need to maintain temperature control and/or viscosity levels of chemicals or other liquids, SPF fluid-applied systems and protective coatings offer superior performance.
E&C INSULATION can protect your tanks, silos and the contents in them by insulating them with spray-applied polyurethane foam & coatings. Using the same principle as a Thermos Jug, our spray-applied insulating foam system helps maintain the desired internal temperature, as well as protecting your tanks from rust, age and harsh weather.
E&C INSULATION have performed various foam & coating test throughout the years and have found systems that out perform others out in the market. The extensive testing and research has been done with one thing in mind, to find the system that is the most durable, easy maintenance, high impact resistant, and pinhole free. These are qualities that our customers have been looking for the SPF systems on their tanks. We at E&C INSULATION feel fortunate that we have found the coating combination that works.
Residential Wall Insulation:
Little Product... BIG Benefits!
Spray Polyurethane Foam (SPF) insulation is rigid, lightweight, flexible, wind resistant, and effective in extreme temperatures and weather conditions. SPF insulation has the highest R-value per square inch of any commercially available insulation material.
Total Comfort Control, Not Just R-Value
The building envelope is a system of construction components which protect against the uncontrolled movement of: heat, air, and moisture.
The true performance of your building envelope can not be measured with the R-value of the insulation alone, but must also consider air movement, moisture control, health, safety, durability, comfort, and energy efficiency.
This is true whether your building is commercial, residential, or multifamily: SPF addresses all these needs in both new construction and improvements to existing structures.

Commercial Wall Insulation
Spray foam insulation could be the best insulation system yet invented.
Look at the following advantages:
Spray polyurethane foam (SPF) decking consists of an application of specifically designed foam covered with an elastomeric coating (typically acrylic, silicone or polyurethane) or aggregate covering to protect the foam from ultraviolet rays. Specialized equipment mixes two liquid components at the spray gun that applies the SPF to a prepared substrate. The mixed liquid expands many times its original volume in a matter of seconds, forming a rigid foam plastic that chemically bonds to the surface to which it is sprayed. Spraying the foam in ½” to 1-1/2” lifts allows the applicator to reach the desired thickness to fill in low areas, build up slope, and provide insulation.
SPF has a closed cell structure that makes it water resistant. It must, however, be protected by elastomeric coatings or other coverings (such as aggregate) to prevent ultra-violet-induced surface degradation. Such coverings can also be used for other purposes, including, inhibiting moisture vapor transmission, enhancing the aesthetics of the system, increasing the impact and abrasion resistance of the system, achieving non-flammability and meeting code requirements.
SPF decking systems have good adhesion to a variety of substrates including metal, wood, concrete and built up roofing (BUR). Since SPF adds little weight to existing deck coverings and can build slope to fill in low areas, these systems are used frequently as a recover decking system. Caution should be used when specifying any recover decking system. The existing deck covering and deck assembly should be thoroughly evaluated by a structural engineer to verify that it can be a safe substrate for SPF decking systems.
Hail and wind driven missiles (such as tree limbs, broken roof tile, metal flashing, etc.) can damage the SPF decking system. However, this type of damage typically does not cause leaks and can be repaired later without compromising the long-term performance of the system.
SPF decking systems also excel when the following conditions exist:
Because of the energy saving characteristics and low maintenance costs of SPF deck systems, these decks are suited to companies or organizations that own their own buildings and must pay their own energy and maintenance costs.
1. Versatile – Polyurethane foam can be applied to surfaces with irregular shapes and penetrations. Applications include tanks, pipes, cold storage rooms and flotation devices. It’s especially suited for decking, as multiple applications can be made over the existing deck. This eliminates the need for costly tear-off of the old deck.
2. Stops Leaks and is Weather Resistant – Polyurethane foams form monolithic, self-flashing surfaces which effectively seal against leaks. Further protection comes from the weather resistant, elastomeric coating applied over the foam. The foam can be sprayed with slope drains, facilitating water removal.
3. Adheres to Most Surfaces – A seamless layer of foam is fully adhered to the substrate – horizontal or vertical - and withstands high wind stresses.
4. Reduces and Simplifies Roof Maintenance – The applied polyurethane foam system usually requires no maintenance. If damaged, urethane sealant is sufficient for repair in most cases.
5. Provides Superior Insulating Efficiency – Polyurethane foam is the most efficient form of thermal insulation available. The systems pay for themselves in 2 to 6 years of energy savings alone.
6. Reduces Building Movement – By placing the insulation on the outside, the foam system reduces building movement and thermal shock.
7. Lightweight – Complete polyurethane foam systems are typically many times lighter than tar and gravel systems. When applied to an existing deck, the loose ballast removed usually weighs more than the replacement foam system. This results in the new deck being lighter than the original.
8. UL Listed – Spray foams incorporated into our systems are listed under UL 790 and UL 723. UL 790 decking systems are listed Class A over non-combustible decks and Class B over combustible decks.
9. Asbestos and Formaldehyde Free – Our foams contain absolutely NO asbestos or formaldehyde.
10. Proven Roofing and Insulating System – SPF systems have been applied successfully over 30 years.
