Advantages of Open Cell Foam Insulation:

  • Seamless Protective Building Envelope
  • Eliminate Air Infiltration
  • Excellent Adhesion
  • Energy Savings
  • Avoids Thermal Bridging
  • Meets UL Class 1 Fire Requirements

Advantages of Closed Cell Foam Insulation:

  • Seamless Protective Building Envelope
  • Moisture and Vapor Barrier
  • Eliminate Air Infiltration
  • Excellent Adhesion and Strength
  • Highest R Value
  • Energy Savings
  • Meets UL Class 1 Requirements
  • Provides a Continuous Air Barrier
  • Reduce and Eliminate Convection Currents within Walls
