Building Science

Room-with-a-viewIn our role as the leading manufacturer of spray foam insulation systems for a variety of buildings, we’re always exploring the latest trends and innovations in building science. For over 40 years, our Research and Engineering Departments have analyzed how NCFI products can optimize performance by studying building physics, systems design concepts, and building sustainability issues.

Performance Areas

We always strive to compliment your design and operation of the structure to protect your building’s interior, and to optimize four key areas of its performance:

 

WaterMoisture Control:

Controlling moisture improves your building’s indoor air quality, lessens the probability of mold, mildew, and bacteria, and ensures your building’s durability.

TempTemperature Control:

Controlling heat flow in and out of your building within and through walls will improve the comfort and health of those inside it, as well as greatly reduce your energy consumption.

AirAir Flow Control:

Controlling the flow of air improves your building’s humidity, and by sealing out unwanted air flow, you eliminate the corresponding heat loss, the airborne dust and pollutants, and the noise.

BuildingStructural Integrity:

The use of spray foam insulation systems will ensure your building’s durability and sustainability since our solutions surpass industry standards, providing the most rigid envelope systems.

Your Building’s Envelope

VH-Pictures-169The physical components of your building’s envelope start at its foundation and include its roof, walls, doors and all of its windows. A variety of factors will determine your building’s envelope and impact its energy effectiveness and durability, but by choosing one of NCFI’s spray foam insulation systems, you’ll enhance your building’s protective envelope to create a healthy, sustainable environment for all who use it, all while enjoying lower costs and greater comfort.
