The perfect solution for homes, commercial buildings and warehouses, spray foam insulation can help buildings be more energy efficient by creating an air barrier that prevents heat loss, air movement and condensation caused by cracks or openings. Discover the process that makes spray foam the most effective insulation product, and why you should choose Icynene foam insulation with Mass Foam Systems.  

How does spray foam insulation work?

Spray foam insulation is designed to go one step further than traditional insulation, with its flexible, air tight and water tight qualities. Spray foam insulation is made up of a combination of liquid chemicals. When sprayed, the chemicals react and expand into a layer of foam that hardens into a dense insulating layer. The thick layer that is created means spray foam won’t lose its shape over time and will continue to protect your home from air leakage. 2 types of spray foam are available; open cell and closed cell. Whilst open cell spray foam provides a lighter option that makes the foam softer and more flexible, closed cell spray foam is denser and creates a more rigid layer of foam, both providing different advantages for depending on your building requirements.
