Open Cell Spray Foam Insulation can be used in various applications to achieve several insulation goals. For example, the material can be used in the residential and commercial sectors for achieving energy savings. At the same time, this material provides maximum protection from the elements by acting as an effective barrier against rain, wind, and snow. Many government agencies, such as the U.S. Department of Energy, recommend its use as a secondary roofing system. On the other hand, commercial businesses may also find it useful in protecting their structures from wind and rain.

Solution for preventing sound infiltration into attics and basements

Star Spray Foam Insulation offers open cell spray foam insulation services for residential and commercial buildings in New Orleans and has proven to be an excellent solution for preventing sound infiltration into attics and basements of residential properties. Its air barrier ensures that sound waves emitted by electronic equipment in the attic are shielded from entering the interior of the house. Since open-cell spray foam insulation is an air-proofing product, the material qualifies for compliance with the building code as a High-Performance Product. Thus, prescriptive R Values do not have to be met to obtain the protection desired by the homeowner. As a result, this material can be added to other materials, like solid rubber roofing tiles, which are designed to resist noise infiltration.

Available in flexible forms

In addition to its airtight function, open-cell spray foam insulation is also available in flexible forms. This means that various sizes, widths, and shapes can be obtained by different application needs. For instance, sheets measuring up to ten feet in width and six feet in length can be used to cover a space the size of a garage above a residential area.

Water Resistant

When it comes to installation, open-cell spray foam insulation has several advantages over fiberglass mesh. One advantage is that it requires little or no extra effort to install. It can be rolled out on a foundation or applied to the exterior surface. Because the product is water-resistant, there is no need for added protection, such as fiberglass mesh backings, when the installation is done. Fiberglass mesh backings, in turn, are susceptible to cracking and damage due to the pressure exerted on them by automobiles driving over them.

Silicone Osefin

If you are looking for a moisture barrier, the open-cell foam would recommend Silicone Osefin, which combines flexibility and strength with excellent air permeability. It also features ultraviolet inhibitors and stops water vapor from penetrating its surface. The vapor barrier paint, on the other hand, would recommend Thermax Vapor Barriers. This product would offer excellent air control and easy cleaning. The product is also resistant to ozone and many other harmful chemicals.

Can be customized to fit any size space

One of the most attractive features of open-cell spray foam insulation is that it can be customized to fit any size space, regardless of the dimension. If you are using spray foam on the outside wall of your house, you would only need to measure the dimensions of the wall and cut the foam accordingly. You would find that this type of insulation can be cut to fit just about any dimensions, and it can be cut to fit odd shapes. Another unique feature of the insulation is that it is easily installed, even though hammering. It has been designed to resist many common impacts, which makes it one of the most durable types of insulation available.
