2lb Closed-Cell Medium Density Polyurethane Spray Foam Insulation
Closed-cell, medium density SPF is one of the highest performing insulations on the market. 2lb foam has an R-Value per inch of thickness of R6 to R7 depending on the manufacturer, most of them being R6. It’s not only a great insulator, it’s also a vapor barrier and air barrier all in one product. Spray foam is one of the only type of installation where the R-value is unaffected by air or moisture. Not many people know that when it comes to other fibrous types of insulations the “Rated R-Value” listed on the package is greatly dependent on the “optimal” conditions for the product to perform, with zero moisture and air movement, which is an environment you cannot find anywhere except in a laboratory. Although, fibrous insulation is still widely used and accepted as common practice and perfectly fine to use in your home but, so is a rotary telephone, or a refrigerator that stays cool from a large block of ice…. Spray Foam Insulation is the new “improved” insulation that eliminates the flaws in old traditional insulation systems.
0.5lb Open-Cell Light Density Polyurethane Spray Foam Insulation
Open-cell, light density SPF, also commonly referred to as icynene foam, has an R-Value of between R3 and R4 Per Inch (Depending on the manufacture) and is a much softer spongy spray foam compared closed-cell. Open-cell foam also expands out of rate about five times more than 2 lb foam. This makes it great for filling large cavities, or insulating areas that are blocked by framing or ductwork leaving only a small crack or hole to insulate through. Open cell foam is not a vapor barrier and does require the additional vapor barrier to installed on the appropriate side of the building envelope depending on where you live in the climate.
Injection foam is a low-rise spray foam insulation it has been formulated specifically for filling cavities or voids, to create a foam that slowly Rises, allowing extra time for the foam to react and expand filled cavity with less expanding pressure or strength than other types of foam, which reduces the risk of the spray foam pushing out or bowing the drywall well expanding within the cavity.
3lb High Density Roofing Spray foam
3 pound High Density Roofing SPF is a high strength spray foam used on flat roofs and the exterior of buildings. because of its higher density it expands at a lower rate than 2 lb foam allowing it to be sprayed more smoothly or flat which is required for roofing or exterior insulation. High-density roofing foam also reduces impact damage caused by extreme weather like hail.
5lb-10lb Ultra High Density Agricultural Spray Foam
Ultra high-density agricultural SPF is the most dense, highest strength spray foam available. Is not commonly used as insulation in homes or buildings but can be found more frequently used in agricultural applications. When ultra high-density home is applied it expands very little and hardens into plastic-like coding similar to a truck bed liner protective coating set this protective coating does have some insulation properties to it. Super strong ultra high density home is most commonly found used in chicken houses because the super-strong plastic-like insulation cannot be pecked scratched or destroyed by chickens or any other animals.
