By Cass Jacoby. 

DUOTACK® SPF HFO features a hydrofluoroolefin (HFO) blowing agent, making it significantly better for the environment, while also enhancing its performance. 

SOPREMA  is passionate about sustainability and is committed to providing contractors and homeowners with products that make it easy to go greener on the roof. This commitment to designing roofing products that are eco-friendly is renewed in their latest highly sustainable roofing product, DUOTACK® SPF HFO Adhesive.  

The adhesive combines SOPREMA’s proven DUOTACK® two component, low-rise spray polyurethane foam (SPF) with a hydrofluoroolefin (HFO) blowing agent. The result is a high-performing adhesive for fleece-back membranes, insulation and coverboards that is significantly better for the earth. 

DUOTACK® SPF HFO helps reduce greenhouse emissions, with only 0.1 percent of that of hydrofluorocarbons (HFCs), the product has a low impact when it comes to contributing to global warming. Compared with HFC blowing agents, the HFO formulation can provide up to 20 percent additional coverage per set. 

“One of SOPREMA’s primary aims is to supply high performance products that are safe for people and the environment,” SOPREMA product manager Matt Mitchell says in a press release. “The new DUOTACK® SPF HFO formulation complies with all state and local environmental HFO regulations. It contains no ozone-depleting chemicals or HFCs and it further elevates the product performance that contractors expect from a market-leading, low-pressure spray foam adhesive.” 

However, The environmental considerations of the product are only a portion of what makes this adhesive so impressive. DUOTACK® SPF HFO has also been engineered to provide a quicker and easier application to save time and money on any project.  

The canister system the product uses is designed to help provide faster setup and shutdown, and the trigger-lock dispenser with stop-and-start capability prevents material waste. The adhesive also features ColorWise® Temperature Warning Nozzles which change from clear to blue to indicate if the product is too cold to be properly applied.  

DUOTACK® SPF HFO has a self-contained, equipment-free application which comes with an easy-to-use, pre-assembled kit that eliminates the need to buy and maintain expensive equipment
