Spray foam insulation is a two-part liquid material that hardens then insulates and air seals wherever it is applied. The material comes in two large 55-gallon drums – an iso and a resin (A and B side). These two liquids are kept separate until applied at the job site by a qualified, licensed spray foam installer. The two liquids travel up through a heated hose to the spray gun, where they are combined to create the foam. The foam expands within seconds to fill the cavity surface. Depending on the type of sprayed-in foam insulation used, closed-cell or open-cell, the foam expands between 40 and 100 times its size upon application.
Product innovation over the years has seen the introduction of several different types of spray foam insulation. Primarily in residential and commercial construction, open-cell and closed-cell spray foam are used while high-density spray insulation is used as roofing foam in commercial or industrial construction. Open-cell sprayed-in foam insulation, a soft low-density material, is typically used for interior applications such as wall cavities, the underside of roof decks, attics, basement walls, and crawlspaces. The open cell structure of low density foamed insulation allows for moisture permeability to help contribute to the moisture management and bi-directional drying of the wall assembly.
Closed-cell spray insulation, a firm medium-density substance, can be used in exterior applications such as continuous insulation applications, as well as internal applications. This type of foam insulation has a higher R-value per inch, making it also suitable for small areas that require the highest possible R-value to meet building code requirements. Closed-cell spray foam’s rigidity help reject bulk water, making it a distinguished flood-resistant material.
As mentioned, open-cell foaming insulation is best suited for interior purposes, offering an array of advantages of traditional fibrous insulation substances. Benefits of open-cell foam insulation include:
Studies suggest polyurethane spray foam insulation lowers energy costs 20%-40%, depending on lifestyle, location, and building design. Benefits are gained with a minimum 2″ application. The colder the winter, the higher the R-value needed.
Increasing the thickness of insulation improves of the R-value. Spraying the foam insulation twice as thick gives twice the R-value. However, doubling then compressing traditional insulation does not achieve twice the R-value; this removes the trapped air they rely on for insulation. Therefore, space may restrict the ability to properly add traditional materials. Replacing traditional insulation with spray foam will double the efficiency rating in the same amount of space.
While open-cell foamed insulation has many advantages over traditional insulation types, closed-cell sprayed-in insulation goes beyond to offer further advantages. Although closed-cell sprayed insulation foam has a higher cost, there are benefits that the substance offers, including:
Although closed cell and open cell foam, both insulate a home, they do it in different ways. Please read our article in which we answer the question and examine both open and closed-cell foam to help you pick the best product for your project.
