Heatlok Soya is the only spray urethane foam (also called polyurethane) made from recycled plastic bottles, renewable natural oils (soya) and water.
Isolation Majeau install only spray foam type II with CCMC (Canadian construction materials center) number approuved.
The major advantages of sprayed urethane foam:
Sprayed urethane foam also has a significant positive impact on the environment: every year, no less than 41 million plastic bottles (591 ml) are used to produce it in Québec.
Sprayed urethane foam must be applied in compliance with CAN/ULC S705.2 standards by a holder of a valid certification, e.g., CUFCA (Canadian Urethane Foam Contractors Association).
Ask and demand urethane Type 2 because type 1 is less efficient.
It is essential, according to Isolation Majeau, that you ask for the most effective sprayed urethane foam on the market: Heatlok Soya, which has a long-term value of R-6 per inch (R-7.2 upon application).
Heatlok Soya is a registered trademark, property of Demilec, Boisbriand (Quebec).
Urethane combines – in a single product and with a single application – three key elements in the construction of sustainable, healthy and energy-efficient buildings:
In other words, it helps you reduce your energy consumption, both in winter and in the summer!

Spray urethane foam is incomparable when it comes to insulating:
Sprayed urethane foam is the ideal insulation for the basement. Rigid insulation sheets, e.g., polystyrene, cause two major problems. It is very difficult to:
Any leakage between the insulation and the concrete will let in moisture and cause condensation, which can lead to mould.
Urethane solves all these problems: it adheres perfectly to concrete without creating any joints, and effectively blocks out air and moisture.
