If you’d like superior insulation that combines building science technology with design performance for your Syracuse, NY home, then you might want to consider open cell spray foam from Standard. Open cell spray foam is a soft, spray-in-place, light density expanding foam insulation that provides insulation and an air barrier, protecting your home from air leakage and offering sound control.
And, open cell spray foam is an environmentally friendly insulation choice for your Syracuse, NY home as well. It’s non-toxic, odorless and does not contain formaldehyde, and expands at a ratio of 100:1. It virtually eliminates air leakage and convection. It’s fast, too – the foam is cured within 20 seconds and can be covered immediately, and any excess material is easily trimmed.
Because the open cells contain dead air, the R-value of open cell spray foam is 3.6 per inch. However, because of the built-in air barrier, there is practically no loss of R-value under weather conditions – and that’s a common problem with fiberglass insulation. Open cell spray foam works when irregular air bubbles, or cells, form during the expansion of the foam and become open. Outer-connected dormant air trapped within the open web structure generates the R-value. This connection of cells creates the air barrier capabilities.
Open cell spray foam from Standard is a great choice for your Syracuse, NY home.
Additionally, open cell spray foam has a Class 1 fire rating, and creates no off-gassing. It’s less expensive than closed cell spray foam, and this insulation system will allow your Syracuse, NY home to perform 30 to 50 percent better than with traditional methods. It is the only light density foam on the market to pass the air-impermeable test as defined by ASTM E 283.
Open cell spray foam, which is also referred to as half-pound or low-density foam, offers the following benefits to your Syracuse, NY home:
- Provides a certified air barrier
