Underwriters Laboratories & Southwest Research Institute in the U.S.: the Loss Prevention Council & RINA in Europe.
What is the cost comparison between you and your competition?
We are very competitive regarding the cost of material, but when you add in coverage per man per day we become very competitive. In the marine industry we cannot be touched. We are 10x less costly than the conventional pin method, and 1/3 the weight.
How is the material applied?
We use a machine for the dry fiber and a liquid pump for the adhesive. Both products meet in a nozzle and are propelled against the surface at the same time.

ASFI has more tests on wood than any product in the country.
How thick can your products be applied?
On walls 8" thick and on ceilings up to 4" thick, depending on density.
Do your products contain any recycled material?
Yes, our fiber products are 100% recycled material.
Can anyone buy your material?
Its mandatory that anyone wishing to apply ASFI products first complete a training program provided at your facility.
