How does it work?
To create foam, two liquids initiate a chemical reaction. The A side–composed of a mixture of MDI and pMDI– and the B side–a polyol and small amounts of other liquids– are stored in drum containers before they are mixed together to create foam. Blowing agents help the foam expand. The amount foam expands determines it’s “cell density:” density will either be considered open cell or closed cell.
Learn about the differences between Open Cell and Closed Cell Foam in this informative YouTube video by Steve Maxwell.
What is it used for?
Foam has a variety of uses, including:
- Wall Insulation
- Air seals
- Container/Container Tanks Insulation
- Duct work Insulation
Because of it’s unique characteristics, spray foam is multi-functional and the best value of any insulation product.
Why choose spray foam?
- It has the highest R-value of any insulation product on the market.
- It maintains indoor air temperature, seals cracks and improve energy efficiency.
- It protects against moisture and increases wind resistance.
- It minimizes air leaks, reduces sound, seals windows and doors, and helps keep out insects and allergens.
- It insulates tanks for liquids that must maintain a consistent temperature.
- It is the best choice for insulating refrigerated warehouses, meat and dairy processing plants, and distribution centers for frozen foods and fresh produce.
