AbstractThis report deals only with the boardstock foams. It summarizes the key findings of the project and refers to other publications issued during the course of work. Research on sprayed polyurethane foam has already been presented in two reports: "Report on sprayed polyurethane foam with alternative BAS" published by the Polyurethane Division of the Society of Plastics Industry lnc. in 1989 and "Report on factors affecting the field performance of spray applied thermal insulating foams" published in 1993 by the Polyurethane Foam Contractors Division of the SPI Inc.
