This type of insulation is a non-toxic foam that is spray-applied as a liquid. It expands within seconds to 120 times its volume to fill every crevice, providing superior energy efficiency and improved indoor air quality. It is most frequently used in residential and light commercial applications.
Open cell foam insulation reduces airborne noise and dust, making it a healthy choice for those who suffer from allergies, asthma, or chemical sensitivity. It is the perfect choice for cathedral ceilings, conditioned attics, wall cavities, and wood and/or steel construction.
This type of insulation is a non-toxic foam that is spray-applied as a liquid. 2.0 Closed cell foam is excellent for insulation, air sealing, and noise reduction. It is most frequently used in industrial, commercial, and agricultural applications.
As little as 2 inches of 2.0 LB closed cell foam insulation has shown to increase structural racking strength by up to 300 percent in wall cavities. It is a perfect choice for warehouses, shops, barns, hangars, basements, and most of the structures that need to be vapor sealed and insulated.
Intumescent coatings and intumescent fire-restive coatings protect the foam insulation. These coatings are spray-applied to act as a shield against fire. Intumescent coatings significantly decrease the foams burning rate by intumescing to many times their original wet film thickness and creating a char barrier.
Intumescent coatings are opaque and visibly distinguishable when applied to foam insulation. Opaque or white in color, intumescent coatings provide site-applied fire protection to various foam applications.
Every home has a thermal envelope. It’s the structure that separates the air inside your home from the air outside. The National Renewable Energy Laboratory describes a thermal envelope as “everything about the house that serves to shield the living space from the outdoors.”
This includes things like:
Maximizing a home’s energy efficiency means creating a tightly sealed thermal envelope. If you have ever been inside a building that feels drafty, or a building that leaks when it rains or snows, then you have experienced the effects of a poor thermal envelope.
Insulation and perceived home energy efficiency were determined by R-value measurement of the insulation product being sold.
Unfortunately, an R-value number is almost useless because installation practices and air loss dramatically affect the overall thermal efficiency of your home.
The R-value of an insulation agent is meaningless unless it is installed to exact specifications and does not degrade, settle, or compress over time.
It is an easy number to determine and allows the large companies who manufacture and sell insulation products to have an advantage in the marketplace.
