Interesting read. This is the first I've ever heard of the problem. Foam is still a very expensive process and I have not used it my self.

Due to the combustible nature of the product, the new IBC requires all spray foam to be covered with a thermal barrier (gwb, plywood, etc.) even in attics and crawl spaces.

Josall, I don't like specifying the stuff for that reason. I can't imagine what it would cost to carve all this stuff out for some simple re-wiring.

This foam ignited during the application process.
