What exactly is spray foam insulation?

Spray foam insulation is a composite material formed when two chemicals are mixed. When sprayed with a unique applicator, their reaction creates a foam solution which dries in place to create an air and vapour barrier. Once sprayed, it is initially in a liquid state and soon hardens into a water-resistant and airtight layer of a sealant.

Isothane’s spray foam solutions are made from polyurethane, a versatile blend of materials – depending on the desired function and application of the foam. Spray polyurethane foam, also called SPF, ensures reduced energy-wasting leaks. This spray application is of two types – open and closed – that differ based on how their insulation processes occur.

What are its benefits for commercial and domestic applications?

If you go for spray-foam insulation, you secure excellent coverage, much better than rigid foam or fibreglass batts. It is a long-lasting solution, capable of persisting for decades and sometimes as long as a building lives. Its ability to stick to surfaces and create strong bonds for that long makes it an ideal investment at a relatively low cost.

The closed-cell type creates a united barrier of air and vapour, helping homeowners contain unwanted mould growth on their property. This type is also favourable for humid, flood-prone and excessive rainfall-receiving regions and adds muscle to sheaths and frames.

Open-cell foam significantly diminishes allergens and dust from polluting your office or home. The High R-Value and airtight properties offered makes it ideal for basements and attics in residential properties as it prevents heat transfer. Spray foam doesn’t lose this R-value, unlike fibreglass, nor does it compress. These properties clinch enhanced energy efficiency and regulate temperature with cheaper power bills.

For industrial and commercial applications, including offices and warehouses, spray foam is quite a popular pick for providing unmatchable performance in insulation. It is very commonly used as a soundproof barrier and insulating HVAC ductwork. Spray foam can seal all gaps and cracks and arrest air leaks often required for most commercial projects.

Can I DIY it?

Though DIY kits are surfacing in the market, it remains a messy job left best to industry experts. The expert installers are trained to detect every tough spot and guarantee optimal foam performance, understanding the right quantities of the mixture without leaving behind a chemical mess.
