A True 15 Minute Thermal Barrier
International Cellulose Corporation, the world’s leading developer and manufacturer of spray acoustical finishes, is proud to present Ure-K.
Ure-K is a thermal barrier approved as a building interior insulation to delay the ignition and reduce the surface burning rate of low melting, combustible rigid spray-on polyurethane foam. Ure-K may be sprayed over foam in existing buildings or it can be used as a protective coating over foam in new construction projects as a combination system.
Unlike other products that are “Ignition Barriers”, Ure-K fully complies with the thermal barrier requirements of 15 minute protection. Insurance carriers know that Ure-K has been a proven performer for many years and often times require its use. Plastic foam products have a very high smoke rating and the use of Ure-K will provide precious time to evacuate the building in the unfortunate case of a fire.
When used with an overall insulation package, Ure-K, at 1.25", adds another R-4.5 to the system, providing more performance per dollar than competing barriers that do not add insulation value.
Ure-K applied over polyurethane provides additional thermal resistance which will meet the stringent "R" values required for today's energy conservation needs. The combination of Ure-K and polyurethane has the highest efficiency of all available insulations.
Ure-K is a monolothic coating which will provide a highly efficient sound absorption surface in either new or existing buildings. This is an important benefit in controlling noise levels to meet OSHA and other requirements.
Ure-K fibers and liquid binder are applied to the surfaces simultaneously in separate streams through equipment especially engineered to control the adhesive/fiber mixture. The Ure-K binder provides excellent adhesion to all types of foam insulations.
Ure-K & Foam Applications
The combination of Ure-K Spray Coating and foam can be used in a variety of applications:
- Refrigerated warehouses
- Metal buildings
- Underground parking decks
- Projects requiring high R-values
- Curtin wall high rise buildings
- Tilt-up, precast & poured-in-place concrete construction
- Energy conservation
