Does spray polyurethane foam give "off-gas"?
All manufactured materials will off-gas to some extent. Some building products will off-gas in large qualities

Medium density spray polyurethane foam meeting the CAN/ULC S705.1 Material Standard is the only building product that is tested for occupant conditions. The industry has then taken an unprecedented stance and required that all manufacturers meet a maximum limit of 1/100 of the government allowable limit. Manufacturers have met this requirement in less than 24 hours.
Does spray polyurethane foam burn?
Spray polyurethane foam is an organic material and all organic materials burn. Medium density spray polyurethane foam contains a fire retardant so that the flame spread is less than 500 when tested in accordance with CAN/ULC S102 and specimens prepared in accordance with the requirements of the National Building Code.
What happens if the contractor does not do a proper job?
All licensed spray foam contractors must meet the installation requirements of the CAN/ULC S705.2 Installation Standard and all the installation requirements of the manufacturer. All manufacturers listed on this web site provide a comprehensive Quality Assurance Program which you can contact if you have any questions or problems. The Quality Assurance Program acts as a conciliator to resolve all issues. The Quality Assurance Program investigates any complaints and conducts inspections. If there are any deficiencies from the Standard, the contractor must correct the deficiencies and if he is unwilling or unable to do so, the 3rd party warranty provided under the Quality Assurance Program will correct the problem up to the limits set by the Program.
