Although a fast and economical way to insulate, spray polyurethane foam (SPF), like most other organic materials, is combustible. SPFs will, when ignited, burn rapidly and produce intense heat, dense smoke and gases which are irritating, flammable and/or toxic. As with other organic materials the most significant gas is usually carbon monoxide.
Whether you are using closed cell or open cell SPF, you need a thermal barrier that is easy to apply, performs and fits in the budget.
