Foam Spray Insulation

More than likely, the home that you live or any building you have been in recently is insulated. This is the case for many buildings that have been built over the past five decades. Insulation can be done for several reasons, but the main reason for insulation is to provide heat reduction and gain in a building. A material is used in the walls and ceilings and floors of building structures to provide insulation. The most common materials used for insulation are mineral wool, fiberglass and foam spray insulation.  Polyurethane foam is what is used for foam insulation. It is applied in liquid form to the surface it will be insulating and immediately expands and hardens. This type of insulation can be applied to asbestos sheeting, metal, wood, brick and other surfaces. Not only is it a resistant barrier, it is also waterproof.

This form of insulation is cost effective, because it requires a minimal amount to fill spaces since it expands. Spray foam insulation can expand many times its original size. It is also one of the most energy efficient forms of insulation as it cuts down on convection, conduction and radiation which are the three main causes of heat loss in buildings. It is also one of, if not the quickest form of insulation. It can be applied very quickly and expands and hardens minutes after it has been applied. Foam insulation does not need to be maintained either. Once it has been applied and expands and hardens, it can last for the lifetime of the building.

Foam insulation is one of the most commonly used forms of insulation and it has been used as insulation for several decades. This type or any type of insulation should only be applied by professionals who are trained to handle it. Applying it incorrectly could result in poor insulation within your home, as well as more serious damage. It is also extremely dangerous to handle insulation of any material but especially foam. Professionals who spray foam insulation must wear a mask because it’s dangerous to inhale the fumes it puts off. If it encounters skin, that is also dangerous.
