Closed Cell Insulation

Studies have shown that as much as 40% of a building’s total energy loss is due to air infiltration. Traditional fiberglass insulation is only stapled, or placed into the wall cavities and does not seal the stud and wall cavities from end to end, or top to bottom. Air infiltration will pass through these gaps, making it far less efficient than Closed-Cell Insulation. Closed-Cell Insulation not only adheres to, but forms to the walls and floors to create a tight seal and insulating barrier that stops the air leakage. Closed-Cell Insulation also boasts the highest R-value per inch than any other commercial material, (upwards of R-7.0, compared with Fiberglass at R-3.5) making your home more comfortable and less expensive to heat in the winter, and cool in the summer.
Since Closed-Cell Insulation acts as an air barrier, it also helps to reduce moisture infiltration, which is a source of dangerous mold and mildew growth in the home, and can cause severe health problems to its occupants. Protect your family and save money at the same time with Closed-Cell Insulation home insulation systems. Moisture infiltration can also cause structural damage to your home or building.
Molds produce tiny spores to reproduce. Mold spores waft through the indoor and outdoor air continually. When mold spores land on a damp spot indoors, they may begin growing and digesting whatever they are growing on in order to survive. There are molds that can grow on wood, paper, carpet, and foods. When excessive moisture or water accumulates indoors, mold growth will often occur, particularly if the moisture problem remains undiscovered or un-addressed. There is no practical way to eliminate all mold and mold spores in the indoor environment; the way to control indoor mold growth is to control moisture. Closed-Cell Insulation is the key.
Closed-Cell Insulation is a type of insulation that locks out moisture.  The advantages of closed-cell foam compared to open-cell foam are its strength, higher R-value, and greater resistance to leakage of air or water vapor. The disadvantage of the closed-cell foam is that it is more dense than other insulation, and therefore requires more material, making it more expensive. Even though it has a better R-value, typically the cost per R is still higher than open-cell foam. The choice of foam can also be based on the requirements for the other performance or application specific characteristics such as strength, vapor control, available space, etc. Open-cell SPF has an R-value around 3.5 per inch and typically uses water as the blowing agent. Closed-cell SPF has an R-value of around 6.0 per inch (aged R-value) and uses high R-value blowing agents.
This makes it useful for areas such as wine rooms that require all moisture to be locked out of the room.

WARNING

No pets, fish, animals of any kind can be in the room during or after
insulation for at least four hours.
Highly toxic and need at least four hours to air out.
