SPRAY FOAM INSULATION
PRODUCT OVERVIEW

A spray polyurethane foam that adheres tenaciously to framing members and substrates, when installed following application guidelines.

SPRAY FOAM PRODUCTS

CLOSED CELL SPRAY FOAM

As a component of a “systems approach” to proper building envelope construction, AirTight™ closed-cell spray polyurethane foam provides exceptional performance in minimizing heat transfer, moisture gain, air leakage and improving racking strength. It provides an energy conserving solution to most structures.

OPEN CELL SPRAY FOAM

Open-cell spray foam is a thermal insulation material that expands 120 times its initial volume, fills cavities of any shape, and adheres tenaciously to most building materials and framing members.

It provides a continuous, protective air barrier that helps to minimize air leakage and intrusion, and provides exceptional performance in the reduction of heat transfer.

RETROFIT FOAM INSULATION

AirTight™ Retrofit Foam helps create an air barrier system in wall cavities and may be used to incrementally fill an existing cavity wall or block wall assembly from the bottom to the top in a progressive application.

This installation method allows an existing cavity wall to be insulated without the removal of the interior face of the wall, providing an air barrier and insulation of the wall with minimal impact to the wall cavity.

The benefit of this is reducing the time, labor and the expense of removing and replacing the existing interior face of the wall. In block wall assemblies Retrofit Foam may be used to incrementally fill the interior cavities of the block to supply insulation and minimize the air leakage and heat transfer of the assembly.

• Specifically designed for injection and pour applications into existing wall cavities and block wall constructions.

• Provides the same physical properties as the AirTight™ Open Cell spray applied insulation system and allows the applicator to insulate and air-seal existing walls without removing the interior face of the existing wall.

MORE ABOUT CLOSED-CELL SPRAY FOAM

Closed-cell spray foam insulation is one of the most efficient insulating materials commercially available, with aged R-Values above 6.0 per inch.

The description “closed-cell” comes from the cell structure of the finished insulation material. One cubic inch of polyurethane foam insulation contains millions of tiny plastic closed cells filled with Enovate® 3000, a non-ozone depleting blowing agent.

The blowing agent is captured within the cells which contributes to highly efficient insulating properties. In addition, closed-cell foam provides an inherent air barrier with low moisture vapor permeability, and excellent resistance to water. The density for closed-cell spray foam is approximately two pounds per cubic foot. The medium density foam provides sheer and racking strength to wall assemblies in building applications.

Closed-cell spray foam insulation systems, when properly installed, deliver energy savings of up to 45%.
Small imperfections in the building envelope (holes, cracks, gaps) not properly sealed will eventually lead to poor building performance or worse, moisture accumulation, allergen/pathogen growth, and very possibly structural failure. The solid nature and sealing capability of closed-cell spray foam, inhibits moisture-driven elements. Two inches of closed-cell spray polyurethane foam insulation will minimize air infiltration, exfiltration, convection, conduction and control solar driven moisture in the building envelope.

MORE ABOUT OPEN-CELL SPRAY FOAM

AirTight open-cell spray foam insulation is a spray-applied, half pound density, non-structural, thermal insulation material used in wall cavities, floor assemblies, ceiling assemblies and in attic applications. Open-cell foam insulation is a performance upgrade over conventional insulation that leads to energy efficiency, improved occupant comfort, a cleaner indoor environment and greater noise reduction for building/home owners.

Building envelopes with increased insulation levels are becoming standard practice. Consumers are increasingly involved in the selection of green building products due to rising energy costs and the recent availability of tax credits and energy rebates. Open-cell spray foam technology is a cost-effective solution to improve the energy efficiency of a building. The material expands 120 times its initial volume and fills cavities of any shape providing a continuous, protective air barrier that helps to minimize air leakage and air intrusion.
