Chemistry Australia Logo

Spray polyurethane foam (SPF) is a highly versatile polymer, formulated by combining isocyanate and polyol resin. These react and expand over 30 times their original volume. The ability to mix the ratios of these chemicals, plus the addition of catalysts, is what makes polyurethane so versatile.

SPF self-adheres to most building materials and forms a continuous blanket of insulation that bridges gaps and cracks, without the need for fasteners which can act as thermal bridges. Unlike fiberglass (FG) batts, SPF is durable, does not degrade over time, and can be used to insulate new buildings or to retrofit existing buildings.

Because SPF is applied by spraying, it will conform to the shape of the substrate, allowing large areas of complex shapes to be insulated quickly. Due to its light weight, it has little design impact on existing structural elements, while structurally strengthening the substrate.


Aliphatic Polyurethane Binder (MDI):

  • Excellent Chemical Resistance
  • Weather Proof
  • Unaffected by UV
  • Exceptional Adhesive Properties
  • Wet Play & Splash Areas

Aromatic Polyurethane Binder:

  • Economic
  • Flexible
  • Rubber Wetpour Surfacing
  • Durable

Effective waterproofing of building ceilings, floors and walls extends the lifespan by preventing water leaks and eliminating the risk of condensation that can cause fungus, mould, damaged interiors and floors, that weaken the building structure. Formulated with sustainability in mind, we offer low or zero VOC waterproofing solutions, coupled with high-performance, that have stood the test of time. 

Pacific Urethanes offer a wide range of cost-effective polyurethane and polyurea waterproof coatings for demanding environments. They are available in,

  • Custom Formulations
  • Decorative
  • Single and Plural Component
  • Aromatic and Aliphatic
  • Low or Zero VOC
  • Roller, squeegee and spray applications

Polyurethane waterproofing systems can be applied in-situ and forms a homogeneous membrane that conforms to the shape it is applied to. It adheres to most building materials and forms a continuous membrane that bridges gaps and cracks. Its excellent adhesive properties allow it to adhere even to porous substrates, such as concrete. It allows the protection of critical building components in major construction projects.

High-performance polyurea and hybrid systems provide flexible, durable, seamless membranes with,

  • Easy Installation
  • Total Water Tightness
  • Fast Cure Time
  • Excellent Chemical Resistance
  • High Abrasion Resistance
  • Temperature Resistance


Innovative polyurethane high performance adhesives and sealants for the building and construction industry. Once cured, the sealant can be painted or sanded, and can compensate for small unevenness in the surface. Two-component adhesives have outstanding bridging ability with the possibility to join even large gaps

  • Outstanding Adhesive Properties (adheres even to porous substrates, such as concrete)
  • Excellent Bond Strength
  • High Durability (Weather & Environmental Resistance)
  • Excellent Elasticity
  • Versatile
  • High Performance
  • High Impact & Sheer Strength
  • Resistance to Aging & High Structural Strength

Structural Insulated Panels (SIPs) are specially designed by injecting liquid polyurethane (PUR) closed-cell  foam uniformly between two panel skins, and is an efficient material for residential and light commercial buildings. Our products for the built environment offer,

  • High R-Value
  • High Fire Resistance Rating
  • Low Moisture Absorption Properties
  • Chemical Resistance
  • Excellent Adhesive Properties
  • Energy Efficiency
  • Air Tightness


Under-Slab Insulation Project

A leading specialist in commercial and residential insulation solutions, required an under-slab insulation material to achieve a high thermal resistance (R-Value) in less space than traditional Extruded Polystyrene (XPS) board.

Project Deliveries:

Pacific Urethanes delivered a spray polyisocyanurate (PIR) formulation that provided,

  • High R-rating with high compressive strength
  • Seamless application resulting in high energy efficiency without thermal bridging
  • Quick turn around and progression of the construction project
