Share Article

QUIK-SHIELD® | 106 open-cell spray foam, made by SWD Urethane, has passed all of the criteria required for use in residential applications without an ignition barrier.

Mesa, AZ: SWD Urethane passes rigorous testing on Quik-Shield 106 open-cell spray foam and now meets the ICC-ES AC 377 Appendix X standard without the use of an ignition barrier. This means Quik-Shield 106 can now be installed in a residential home without the use of an intumescent fire protective paint, including unvented attics.

Passing the Appendix X standard puts Quik-Shield 106 into an exclusive category and adds to the list of advantages that it delivers including: industry leading yield, high R-value, low application odor, good adhesion, and smooth consistent application.

SWD President Jim Perkins stated, “This is an exciting breakthrough for Quik-Shield 106. Eliminating the extra step of a fire protective paint saves time, money, and ultimately makes our contractor partners more competitive.”
