One of the most important problem areas we can assist clients is where buildings have been constructed without adequate vapor barrier protection. We can help solve the problem of water penetration and flooding below ground level. We are one of the few companies in the GCC area that can solve this problem.
We also provide special primers for application directly onto damp or wet areas, Vertical and Horizontal Fillers, Fire Resistant Coatings (minimum one hour), Chemical, Tanks and Sewage Treatment Facilities. Our products are spray “Hot” applied and “Cold” applied creating a seamless membrane and in the case of roofing are 100% waterproof and reflect the UV rays 85% to 93% depending on product selection. Our applications are both Single and Dual Component and Spray applied by permanently based US certified technicians who are the best in the world for this technology.
“Over the past decade there has been substantial changes in the construction industry for materials that can withstand extreme environments and SPF insulation & polyureas is at the forefront of the industry.” Spray Foam insulation has become widely recognized as a safer, healthier and far superior alternative to the conventional fiberglass insulation. The most significant benefit to this green product is its energy efficiency, by cutting energy costs by up to 40%! With recent trends showing high increases in energy costs and growing health conscious consumers, spray foam insulation is guaranteed to be the next generation of residential and commercial insulation.
What makes the company triumphant and enduring is its widely experienced and highly trained people. They have successfully completed several endeavors including a pipeline refurbishment project for foam insulation and polyurea coating of a major below ground oil pipeline in Kazakhstan.
They have previously completed projects in Qatar through the Mannal Group including work for Aspire Zone (Khalifa Stadium), Al Mana (Palm Gardens Villa Complex) and La Cigale Hotel roof and basement areas.
Our people are proficient in the SPF industry with a minimum of 10 years of applying our product range. In addition, our people are experts in Ballistic and Bomb Blast coating for Military and Security projects.
They can assist problems of clients with buildings which have been constructed without adequate vapor barrier protection and solve problems on water penetration and flooding below ground level.

SFCO Qatar Foam Insulation
Foam-LOK is spray foam insulation and roofing systems. Foam-LOK locks in energy savings by adding an exceptionally high R-value insulation system to the building envelope and the roof deck. This advanced insulation and roofing system is spray applied to any shape and substrate. It seals the building envelope to stop heat transfer through the roof deck, minimizes conditioned air from escaping, and restricts unconditioned air from entering the building.
Sustainable Roofing Systems
Are you looking for a sustainable roofing system for commercial and industrial applications that doesn’t leak, reduces life cycle costs, and contributes to overall building energy savings?
With construction expenses increasing and greater awareness of the long-term affects of energy use, building owners and design professionals are looking for cost-effective alternatives to conventional roofs. Foam-LOK™ is the alternative; a system that provides builders, architects, and owners with roofing solutions that support energy conservation, eliminates leaks and builds confidence.
Foam-LOK Advanced Insulation Systems
Areas of Air Movement moves in and out of a building through every hole, crack and crevice. Roughly one third of air infiltrates through walls, ceiling, and floors. Adding an advanced insulation system is necessary to achieve optimal building performance.
Foam-LOK™ spray polyurethane foam is an advanced insulation system. Spray foam insulation can maximize a building or homeowners investment by sealing the building envelope to stop conditioned indoor air from escaping and prevent unconditioned air from entering. Air exchange in and out of a structure is a leading cause of escalated energy bills. The mechanical systems that heat and cool buildings are continuously operating; reducing extreme temperature variations saves on the overuse of mechanical systems and leads to lower energy bills.
Heat loss or gain can occur through a building envelope by three primary mechanisms: conduction, convection and radiation. Three secondary mechanisms that influence the performance of insulation are air filtration, air intrusion and moisture accumulation. Spray polyurethane foam effectively controls the three primary and the three secondary mechanisms of heat transfer, resulting in insulation efficiencies well beyond that suggested by its high R-value alone.
R-Value is well-publicized “status” to reflect insulation value to consumers. R-Value only measures conduction or the material’s ability to resist heat loss or gain. It is derived by taking the “k” value, determined by using an ASTM test method, and dividing it into the number one. The “k” value test is the actual measurement of heat transferred through a specific material. The test favors fiber insulation materials-fiberglass, rock wool, and cellulose fiber as the test does not account for air movement (wind), or moisture (water vapor). Zero wind and zero moisture are not real-world conditions.
Spray Foam Insulation: The predominant heat transfer mechanism for spray foam is conduction. However, because the polymer matrix forming the cells is a poor conductor of heat, spray polyurethane foam has a very high R-Value and effectively blocks heat transfer by conduction.
Radiation is the transfer of heat from one object to another by means of electromagnetic waves. Radiative heat transfer does not require that objects be in contact. Radiative heat transfer occurs in the void of a space.
Spray Foam Insulation: Heat transfer by radiation is effectively blocked by spray foam because of the cell structure. Heat can transfer by radiation across each cell. However, because the cells are at basically the same temperature, heat transfer by radiation is virtually non-existent. Additionally, the building interior walls insulated with spray foam tend to be nearly the same temperature as the room; therefore radiant heat variances to an occupant is minimal leading to greater indoor comfort.
Convective heat transfer occurs when a liquid or vapors come in contact with a material of a different temperature. Within a stud wall cavity, “convective loops” will occur when the exterior and interior temperatures are different. For example, if the interior is warm and the exterior cold, air within the cavity in contact with the exterior wall will cool, becoming denser, and flow downward. On the other hand, air in contact with the interior wall will warm, becoming less dense, and rise. Air rising and falling within the wall cavity forms a “loop” which transfers heat from the warm wall to the cold wall. The result is increased heat loss/gain and costly energy bills. By stopping the air movement, convective heat loss will cease.
Spray Foam Insulation: Spray foam eliminates air movement within the insulation material eliminating convection as a heat transfer mechanism within the insulation mass.
