Tafco’s patented urethane foam-in-place construction technique
Our panels consist of urethane insulation, which is sandwiched between interior and exterior metal “skin”. This metal skin has been die-formed and gauged for uniformity in size. The edges of the panels are tongue and groove with Tafco’s SureLock fasteners which are “foamed-in-place” at time of fabrication.
We are CFC-Free
Tafco prides itself in using CFC-free foam. This environmentally friendly foam is 100% CFC and HCFC free, with a 0% ODP (ozone depletion potential).
It’s all about R-Values
As tested in accordance with ASTM C 518-2004, the R-factor for coolers at temperatures of 55°F is greater than 36.0. For Freezer’s at temperatures of 20°F, the R-factor is greater than 32.0 for 4” thick and greater than 40.0 for 5” thick panels.
What is the Flame Spread?
The prefabricated urethane foamed-in-place panels are supplied with a Class 1 fire hazard classification according to UL 723 (ASTM-E-84), as tested by Underwriters Laboratories, Inc. (UL). Panels have a flame spread rating of 25 or less and bear a certified UL label.
Caulking or Gaskets?
Each panel is provided with NSF listed PVC gaskets which are “foamed-in-place” on both interior and exterior sides of the panel. Our gaskets are impervious to all stains, greases, oils, mildews, etc. They ensure an air-tight seal and also eliminate the need for seam caulking.
