Exterior SPF Insulation System

Spray Polyurethane Foam

Innovative Biocomposite Stud Design for Exterior SPF Insulation System

Concept by Neil Tarr
Developed by the Composites Innovation Centre and Aspen Research
Spray Polyurethane Foam application by Caneco.

  • Ag-Fibre filled thermoplastic stud
  • Soy-based spray polyurethane foam insulation

The stud is designed to snap on to existing aluminum form ties on above grade concrete sections and can extend the height of the building if desired. The web is designed to allow the SPF to pass through, therefore greatly minimizing thermal bridging. Siding can then be attached to the studs.
