Preparation and Processing

  1. To ensure reactivity and viscosity of the components, it is necessary to bring the temperature of the A component to 28-30°C, B component to 40-50°C before processing.
  2. Use paddle stirrer to stir the component A for thirty minutes at 500-1000 rpm.
  3. The isocyanate component (component B) is not required to be mixed if it was stored at a temperature no lower than +15°C. If the isocyanate component was stored at a temperature below +15°C, then slowly heat it to a temperature not higher than +50°C. Then roll the barrel in a horizontal position to a homogeneous state of the component B.

Surface requirements:

  1. Application surface should be strong, uniform, clean, dry, free of oils, fats, crumbling, exfoliating residues of the old coating, and dirt.
  2. Epoxy and polymethylmethacrylate surfaces should be pre-treated with abrasive equipment (belt or disc grinders) and cleared from the dust.
  3. Metal surfaces should be decreased and cleaned from rust.
  4. Moisture from the ambient air should not condense on the surface of the insulated structures.
  5. The surface’s temperature must be at least 3°C above the measured dew point. If necessary, the surface should be heated with heaters or other available and safe methods.
  6. Do not spray with if the wind speed is above 7 m/s.

Processing rules

For high-pressure machines:

  1. If the ambient temperature is +15 to 20°C, then the temperature of the flow heaters should be: component A 30-35°C, component B 45-55°C, the temperature of the hoses 30-45°C. Apply 3-5 mm primer layer of PPU. After the primer layer ceases to crumble when exposed to the surface and becomes elastic, apply a layer of foam in one pass not more than 25 mm in order to avoid overheating and deterioration of the foam.
  2. If the ambient temperature is +20 to 30°C, then the temperature of the flow heaters should be: component A 30°C, component B 40-45°C, hoses temperature 25-30°C. Apply a layer of foam in one pass with a thickness of not more than 25 mm.
  3. If the ambient temperature is +30 to 40°C, then the temperature of the flow heaters should be: component A 25-30°C, component B 40-45°C, turn off the heating of the hoses. Apply a layer of foam in one pass with a thickness of not more than 25 mm.
  4. If the ambient temperature is above 40°C or the surface temperature is above 60°C, we recommend no spraying.

For low pressure machines:

  1. If the ambient temperature is +10 to 20°C, then the barrel with the A component need to be warmed to 28-30°C with the component B to 50-55°C. The hoses with a length of less than 10 m should be insulated. Apply a primer layer of PPU 3-5 mm, leave for 5 hours until the primer layer becomes elastic. Apply a layer of foam in one pass with a thickness of not more than 25 mm.
  2. If the ambient temperature +25 to 40°C, then the temperature of the component A should be 25-30°C, component B 35-40°C. Apply a layer of foam in one pass no more than 25 mm.
  3. If the ambient temperature is above 40°C or the surface temperature is above 60°C, we recommend no spraying.

Trial spraying

Before applying PPU, a trial spraying should be performed on a 2 m2 similar to the insulated surface. During the trial, start time and coming off time are the control variables, which must correspond to the values specified in the technical conditions.

After 10 minutes of spraying, the sample is cut and the structure is visually evaluated. Normal quality foam should have a fine-mesh structure without any visible defects (shells, air bubbles, etc.). If the composition is not foamed, the foam is brittle or elastic, then you should check the components (brand, shelf life), the dosage, the temperature parameters, and pressure of the components. After all re-spray.

Spraying recommendations

Spraying is carried out from a distance of 0.6-1.0 m. When spraying the material, the operator directs the sprayer perpendicularly to the insulated surface. Foam mass to be applied evenly, without pauses in the movement of the sprayer. Insulation of polyurethane foam is applied in 3-4 layers. Since the density of 60 kg/m3 deposition thickness should not exceed 15 mm to prevent overheating and deterioration of the foam, the optimal thickness of the foamed layer of the composition applied in one pass is not more than 15 mm. Do not apply another layer of material, if the previous layer is not foamed. If case of rain, stop spraying and continue after the previous layer fully dried.

System consumption per 1 m2

System consumption per 1 m2 with a 5 cm layer of thickness is 5.0 - 5.5 kg or a set output of 4.5-5 m3.

Health effects and precautions

When spraying, use a gas mask BKF or B, goggles with side pads, impervious gloves made of synthetic rubber, special clothing, and shoes.

Storage recommendations

The shelf life of the polyol component is 12 months at 20°C and without opening the barrels.

Differences between freon and water systems

Comparative Characteristics Blowing Agent  
  Freon Water
Cost 10-15% more expensive than domestic water systems and 40-50% more expensive than imported systems. 10-15% cheaper than freon systems of domestic components and 40-50% cheaper than imported systems
Processing conditions Summer systems: spraying at temperatures from +10°C to +30°C. processing Conditions are limited at high temperatures.
Winter systems – spraying at temperatures from -10°C to +15°C. Processing conditions are limited at high temperatures. When processing winter freon systems at low temperatures from +10 to -10°C, it is necessary to apply a primer layer. The next layer of polyurethane primer is applied after at least 5 hours.
Spraying can be done at temperatures from +10°C to +40°C. There are no winter systems for spraying foam at low temperatures.
Storage Freon is more sensitive to temperature changes, partially flies away during its storage. When storing barrels on the street, in a hot weather, the barrels can swell. Temperature changes are not critical for storage.
Adhesion Adhesion to the base and between layers is better than in water systems Adhesion to the base and between the layers is worse than that of freon systems.
Thermal conductivity 10-15% lower than in water systems, so the foam thickness can be made 10-15% less 10-15% higher than in freon systems, therefore the insulation thickness should be made by 10-15% more.
 
Density There are no freon systems for spraying foam with density lower than25 kg/m3 There are components for spraying with density of 8-20 kg/m3
Actual density for systems with a density of 30 kg/m3 The actual density of the finished foam 33-36 kg/m3 or 13-14 cubes with 1 set with a mass of 470 kg and with a thickness of 5 cm for components with a density of 30 kg/m3 at the ambient temperature of 25-30 ° C and applied two layers of 2,5 cm on the high-pressure vessel. The actual density of the finished foam 40-43 kg/m3, or 10.9 11.75 cubes with 1 set with a mass of 470 kg and with a thickness of 5 cm for components with a density of 30 kg/m3 at the ambient temperature of 25-30 ° C and applied two layers of 2,5 cm on the high-pressure vessel.
