UL Environment (ULe) and its Environmental Claims Validation (ECV) service have validated environmental and sustainability claims for volatile organic compound (VOC) emissions, mold resistance, and bio-based content of BASF’s spray polyurethane foam (SPF) products. The initial ECVs completed by ULe in June were performed on BASF’s SPF wall insulation, air barrier and roofing products, including ENERTITE®, SPRAYTITE®, WALLTITE®, COMFORT FOAM®, FE348 Series and ELASTOSPRAY®. Under ULe’s ECV service guidelines, each validated environmental claim is periodically reassessed to ensure consistent performance characteristics and continued compliance with the applicable standard.

“As one of the first manufacturers in our industry to work with ULe on this type of initiative, we are proud to announce the validation of environmental and sustainability claims for our SPF products,” said Michael Sievers, business manager for BASF Polyurethane Spray Systems. “Independent, third-party validation provides our customers, code officials and the design community with the utmost confidence in the sustainability attributes of our line of spray foam insulation products. It is critical to the success of our industry and our customers that we continually adapt to the evolving landscape of environmental sustainability.”
