A contractor applies spray polyurethane foam (SPU) in the crack between cinder blocks in a wall. This foam would have been reviewed with polyurethane foam testing.

Polyurethane Foam Testing

Applied Technical Services conducts polyurethane foam testing in our polymer lab. Polyurethane (PU) foam is a lightweight and durable polymer with applications in manufacturing, automotive, aerospace, shipping, and construction. PU foam frequently appears in the following products:
Polyurethane foams have two main types: rigid polyurethane foam and flexible polyurethane foam (FPF). Rigid foams are increasingly popular thermal insulators and sound absorbers in buildings and vehicles.
