Spray foam is a premium insulation that delivers multiple benefits, including superior energy performance, reduced air leakage and improved occupant comfort. It also seals penetrations and other areas that are difficult to reach with other types of insulation. These features result in lower energy bills and reduced greenhouse gas emissions.
Attic insulation polyurethane foam (SPF) is a type of insulation that is sprayed on site, expanding to fill gaps and nooks and crannies, providing unmatched air sealing properties. It is a flexible and light material that conforms to the unique design of a building or structure.
Beyond Traditional Insulation: The Modern Marvel of Spray Foam Solutions
Professionally installed 2lb medium density spray-applied SPF insulation offers a wide range of R-values depending on the application and construction method. The higher the R-value, the greater the insulating power.
A key factor in achieving the best results is using a high quality installer who follows industry standards and provides a complete service package. This includes a thorough inspection and analysis of the home, a detailed written report with recommendations, and a comprehensive warranty.
To perform the job properly, crews prepare the area by covering flooring, windows and doors with plastic to prevent any accidental contact with the spray. They will run a hose through a spray gun to atomize the liquid chemicals and create the foam. The chemicals travel through a nozzle, creating a foam that is up to 60 times its liquid volume when fully cured.
The chemistry of spray foam involves two main ingredients, known as A-side and B-side. The A-side, often called isocyanate, contains a type of flammable chemical like methylene diphenyl diisocyanate — more commonly referred to as MDI — and polymeric methylene diphenyl diisocyanate (pMDI). It is similar in composition to Gorilla Glue and should not be inhaled. The B-side contains polyols, a catalyst, blowing agent, surfactant and flame retardant. The reaction between these chemicals produces a closed cell foam that is safe once it dries and cures.
