Common Myths About Spray Foam Insulation Debunked

What is spray foam made of?
Spray insulation is a type of polyurethane foam. It’s made up of two liquid chemical components that undergo a reaction to form a plastic foam that expands and adheres to surfaces. The two liquids are called the A-side and the B-side. They’re sprayed together and allowed to react. Once the chemicals mix and spread, they create a rigid and thick insulating material that dries in minutes or hours.

There are closed and open cell spray foam insulation products. Closed cell insulation is denser and a stronger insulator than open foam. It also creates a vapor barrier, which can prevent moisture infiltration and mold growth. However, closed-cell spray foam is more expensive than open-cell spray insulation.

If you opt for closed-cell spray foam, look for a product with low global warming potential (GWP). This means it uses less hydrofluorocarbons (HFCs) than other types of blowing agents. HFCs have a higher GWP than carbon dioxide and can speed up climate change on a per-kilo basis.
