Gaco WallFoam™ 173 Spray Foam

Gaco Western WallFoam™ 173 is an HFC blown (zero-ozone depleting) liquid spray system that cures to a low-density rigid polyurethane insulation material. WallFoam 173 contains material derived from naturally renewable resources and does not contain CFC’s, HCFC’s or other gases harmful to the environment. This system can be sprayed on clean dry substrates down to 40oF (1.66 oC). Refer to the Gaco Western General Instructions, SG-GacoFoam for spraying instructions. Gaco WallFoam™ 173 is a Class I fire rated foam.

To ensure optimum performance a minimum pass thickness of 3/4” (1.9 cm) is recommended with the maximum not to
exceed 2” (5.1 cm) per pass. For typical equipment settings, consult Gaco Western’s GacoFoam Spray Guide.
