How Spray Foam Insulation Works

Spray foam insulation is applied as a liquid and then it expands into a solid foam as it cools. Because the insulation expands once it is applied, it fills into any space and seals off cracks or gaps that could be letting air in and out of your home. This tight-forming seal increases energy efficiency by keeping your house well insulated. The seal also reduces the ability for allergens and dust to enter your home via outdoor air being blown inside. Since spray foam insulation hardens into one, solid substance, there are no individual particles to break off and create dust in your home. 

Spray foam insulation comes in different densities to provide options for specific needs. R-values of most foam for building insulation range from 3.8 to 7. R-value is a measure for how effective a substance is at insulating and resisting the flow of energy. This type of insulation is non-toxic, making it an excellent choice for in-home use. 

Spray Foam Insulation Installation Process

The process for installing spray foam insulation is fairly quick and easy, but it should be done by a professional to ensure proper steps are taken to create quality foam and applied correctly to ensure thorough air sealing and insulation. 

First, the two liquid components that are mixed to create foam are heated. Second, the installer sprays the foam with a high pressure proportioner system through hoses attached to a spray gun. At the tip of the gun is where the two fluids combine and are sprayed into the areas that need insulation. The chemical reaction that takes place converts the liquids into a solid containing millions of tiny bubbles. Spray foam insulation of the open-cell type expands 120 times its volume within a few seconds. The applicator sprays an area until the appropriate thickness is reached then progresses throughout the space. 

If the area being sprayed will receive a finished wall covering such as drywall the foam will be trimmed flush with the framing members. This can be done right after the foam is sprayed. Any debris from the installation gets cleaned up and discarded along with any prep materials. 

Our Spray Foam Insulation Formula

At Bauer Specialty, we use different types of spray foams. The two primary formulations are a low-density foam and a high-density foam. Low-density spray foam is also referred to as half-pound and open-cell foam. High-density is also called two-pound and closed-cell spray foam.  All foams are specifically designed to make homes more energy efficient and less dusty. We always make sure the products we install are safe and effective.
