What is Polyurethane Spray Foam Insulation?
Polyurethane is a type of liquefied plastic that can expand up to 100 times from its original volume, which makes it a great insulator.
How Does Polyurethane Foam Work?
As polyurethane expands, it moves into the slots, cracks and crevices that regular batting insulation can never reach. In its dried state, polyurethane foam becomes a mass of plasticized cells that forms an impenetrable barrier against wind, drafts and heat loss.
Can It be Used on Corners & Contoured Surfaces?
Yes, polyurethane spray foam is highly versatile, adhering to most surfaces including wood, metal, gypsum board, stone and masonry.
Where can Poly Foam be Applied?
Icynene® and Walltite® polyurethane foams can be installed along attic floors, between studs, into crawl spaces, as well as exterior walls and basements.
