Ever wondered why your licensed Icynene spray foam contractor is dressed in a space suit, sometimes referred to as a ‘hazmat’ suit? The health and safety of our licensed spray foam contractors is as equally important as the health and safety of our customers. Each licensed Icynene spray foam contractor must wear personal protective clothing and gear to ensure they are protected during the application of spray foam.
Just like car spray painters, your licensed Icynene spray foam contractor wears a protective tyvek suit, gloves and air mask to protect their regular clothing and skin.
Personal protective clothing and gear ensures that the spray foam applicator:
- Does not inhale vapors and particulates
- Is protected against skin contact with raw materials
- Has a measure of safety around high-pressure spray equipment.
Icynene installation protocols require that building occupants stay away from the premises during spraying and for 24 hours after spraying is complete. All of these measures are similar to those which should be employed for spray painting, grinding or any activity that generates spray vapors and/or dust particles.
