Closed Cell Spray Foam
Closed-cell spray foam insulation is one of the two popular types of foam insulation on the market. This type of insulation works just as the name implies—the cells of the foam or closed, creating a more dense and stable material for insulation.
Many contractors use this type of insulation for walls because the density reduces heat transfer, keeping interior temperatures lower and more pleasant. Closed-cell spray foam is the choice of many for both residential and commercial structures, whether a new building is being constructed or someone wants to retrofit their current home or building with the insulation.Specifications of closed-cell insulation:
- Also known as two pound foam, which is quite denser than open-cell foam
- R-value of 6 to 6.5 per inch (R-value refers to heat resistance of the material)
- Comparatively twice as much heat resistance than open-cell foam
- Highly effective air barrier
- Excellent resistance to water
- Low moisture vapor permeability
- Characterized by its rigidity and strength
The strength and density of this foam make it a favorite among contractors. Although the price for the material is higher than open cell and fiberglass insulation, the benefits pay off in the long term. Closed-cell foam greatly reduces energy consumption within a home or building, producing substantial savings of time.
Not only does closed-cell foam reduce energy consumption, it also adds value to a structure, boosting the resell value. For homeowners and commercial building owners, this is a great benefit and reason to consider the insulation.
If you want to receive the most from any type of insulation, then closed-cell foam is the insulation for you. No other type of commercial insulation is stronger and able to reduce heat transfer.Do you have questions about spray foam insulation?
