  • Briefing Paper on polyurethane one-component foam (OCF) vs. spray foam cans (SFC) technology.pdf

    For members Uploaded January 22, 2019

    FEICA’s OCF TWG has identified two spray foam can (SFC) manufacturers that supply products to the European market without providing the necessary labelling safety information for use by both consumers and professionals. Their safety requirements are based on misleading testing procedures and incorrect interpretation of results, which could have an impact on the OCF industry as these SFC cans are very similar in packaging format to the OCF technology. 

    The purpose of this internal paper is to help members to introduce the issue to their organisations and clearly differentiate the two technologies to avoid any future potential problems with the authorities.
