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).

Our foam is CFC/HCFC free. We have a zero ODP (Ozone Depletion Potential) and one GWP (Global warming 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.
