Highest R-value in the Market
Insulation is rated in terms of thermal
resistance - R-value - which indicates the resistance to heat flow. The
higher the R-value, the greater the insulating effectiveness. SPF has
the highest R-value of all readily available, cost-effective
insulation in the market today.
Eliminates Convection Looping.
Temperature differences between the unconditioned outside
air and the conditioned living space can create convective looping (warm
air rising, cold air falling) within a stud cavity. The impact of this
looping degrades the R-value of most common forms of insulation and
causes additional load on your home's heating and cooling system. The
superior R-value and unique sealing characteristics reduce
this temperature variance and the effect of convective looping, saving
you energy dollars.
Building Code Requirements.
Don't worry about durability. The foam is approved by all
three national building codes and will perform for the life of your
building. Its exceptional thermal and structural characteristics will
save you, and generations to come, from the problems associated with the
high cost of energy.
Creates a Healthy
Sprayed Low Pressure Polyurethane foam effectively protects your
living space from unwanted moisture build-up and condensation caused by
warm moist air meeting cool dry air within the building envelope (stud
cavities, attics). Installed by a Qualified Contractor, the foam
effectively seals your home against unwanted moisture. You can now use
modern ventilation techniques to create the best, most habitable indoor
living space free of excess moisture and airborne pathogens for a
healthy, more comfortable home.
Low Pressure Polyurethane foam insulation can be applied to a home under construction
and will not only insulate, but will also reduce air leakage in the
