Why Spray Foam?
All foam product stops drafts and has excellent R-values. This means you’ll experience greater comfort control and see substantial heating and cooling cost savings. Spray foam’s energy efficient qualities are what make it most desirable but you’ll also notice decreased outside noise and much less dust in your home.
The same open cell structure of the semi-rigid foam that insulates temperatures also absorbs and reduces the transmission of sound. By sealing your home with spray foam, it will reduce the infiltration of allergens, pollen and external dust. Since spray foam is not a particle based insulation (like cellulose) it doesn’t contribute to the dust level in your home. Spray foam offers a perfect fit every time. Since it’s applied as a liquid, it will reach a semi-rigid mass that expands and cures in just seconds.
Excellent for use where there is an air leakage problem, such as:
- Sill plates
- Truss ends
- Base boards
- Electrical outlets
- Other draft sources
Save energy & money, while being comfortable & healthy
Spray foam is available in both open- and closed-cell configurations and is typically made from polyurethane. Its sprayed into construction assemblies as a liquid, which then expands to fill the surrounding cavity. Once dry, spray foam functions as both an air barrier and thermal barrier to effectively fill holes and cracks for both a well-insulated and air-tight wall assembly. Closed-cell spray foams are more dense and also function as a vapor barrier.
Spray-applied as a liquid, each insulation system expands within seconds to 120 times its volume to fill every nook and cranny. This provides superior energy efficiency and improved indoor air quality by eliminating air movement through walls which carry allergens and dust.
HEATLOK SOY® is a rigid (closed cell) spray polyurethane foam insulation system that uses recycled plastic waste and renewable materials, thereby efficiently and effectively utilizing the world’s non renewable resources. HEATLOK SOY® can increase comfort and savings while reducing excess waste and energy consumption in buildings by up to 50%.
HEATLOK SOY® is a two-component spray-applied rigid polyurethane foam green in color having a nominal density 2 lbs/ft³. This spray foam has been specially formulated to meet the intent of the U.S. Building Codes and is used primarily in air barrier and insulation applications. HEATLOK SOY® is an environmentally-friendly foam developed from recycled plastic materials, renewable soy oils; and possesses the blowing agent HFC 245fa.
Spray foam is non-toxic and has undergone extensive testing and meets the intent of all building code requirements. It reduces airborne noise and dust making it a healthy choice for those who suffer from allergies, asthma or chemical sensitivity.
Our primary foam supplier is Demilec. The bulk of our foam projects use their SEALECTION 500 formulation which is a half-pound, or low-density foam. It has been specifically designed to make homes more energy efficient, comfortable, quiet and less dusty. SEALECTION 500 is an open cell semi-rigid spay-applied polyurethane foam insulation system which is made up of millions of microscopic cells that simultaneously insulate and air-seal.
- Once the foam components are up to temperature and mixed spraying can begin.
- The foam is spray to the average thickness indicated.
- Walls and cathedral ceiling applications are typically trimmed flush with the studs or rafters for interior surfaces to be hung.
- The debris is cleaned up and removed.
- The process is completed and benefits are experienced.
