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 +15-20°C, then the temperature of the flow heaters should be: component A 40-45°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.
  2. If the ambient temperature is 20-30°C, then the temperature of the flow heaters should be: component A 35-40°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 30-40°C, then the temperature of the flow heaters should be: component A 30-35°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 surface temperature is above 60°C, we recommend no spraying.

For low pressure machines:

  1. The ambient temperature is 15-20°C, then the barrel with the A component need to be warmed to 40-45°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. To eliminate internal overheating of the foam and deterioration of the quality of the foam, the thickness of the spraying should not exceed 25 mm.
  2. If the ambient temperature 25-40°C, then the temperature of the component A should be 30-40°C, component B 40-50°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. 

10 minutes after the trial spraying, cut the sample and visually evaluate the structure. It should be without any visible defects (shells, air bubbles, etc.). If the composition is not foamed or the foam is brittle or elastic, then the proper usage of components, the correct dosage, the set temperature and pressure parameters are not correct. Please, check above mentioned parameters one more time and perform another trial spraying.  

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. To avoid overheating of the foam and deterioration of the quality of the foam, the thickness of the foam layer in one pass should not be more than 15 mm. Only after the sprayed layer’s temperature is not higher than 40°C in accordance with pyrometer, second layer can be applied. 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. Start spraying with hard-to-reach places (Gables, chimneys, vents, etc.).

System consumption per 1 m2

System consumption per 1 m2 with component temperature of +15 to 30°C and a 5 cm layer of thickness is 3.0-3.5 kg or a set output of 7-8 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.
