What is the Difference between Open-cell and Closed-cell Polyurethane Foams?
This may be one of the most important pages on the website if your interest is in spray foam insulation. When it comes time to actually put the foam product in your home or commercial building structure, you must identify whether you will use 0.5 lb./cu. ft., open cell foam, or 2.0 lb./cu. ft. closed cell foam. This makes a big difference in cost, application methods, and performance.
Have a large building in Mount Pleasant, MI ? We Recommend Closed-cell SPF
The large-scale insulation jobs performed by these contractors require special equipment as well as safety gear during installation. When the foam cures and hardens just several minutes after application, it’s completely safe for as long as it stays in place.
When properly installed, SPF (Spray Polyurethane Foam) creates a highly insulated building assembly that’s also free of energy-wasting air leaks. To see if spray foam is a wise option for improving your home’s comfort and efficiency, contact us today for a free quote.
Open-cell SPF works great to!
Open-cell spray foam insulation is light and sponge-like. The cells from which it is made break or pop as the foam expands and before it sets. Consequently, most cells are “broken” or open. (Think “kitchen sponge” but much smaller.) Like closed-cell insulation, it serves as an air barrier but unlike closed-cell foams, it allows water vapor to enter and pass through it.
Open-cell spray foam is light, typically only 0.4 to 0.5 lb. per cubic foot, and therefore does not substantially affect structural loads. It is generally considered more environmentally friendly than other foams because water is used as the blowing agent. In addition, open-cell foam provides excellent sound control.
