What You Need to Know About Spray Foam Insulation

Spray Polyurethane Foam can be used practically everywhere and can be imagined for heat and acoustic insulation purposes. For example, roofs, attics, facades, foundations, basements, cellars, floors, internal walls, overlappings between floors, inner sections, ceilings, and storerooms.

It can also be used on structural elements of buildings, balconies, arcades, doors, window slopes, pipes and conduits, tanks, and on entire inclined, rough and uneven surfaces. It can also be used on vehicle bodies, vehicle trailers, container carriers, container sheds, parking lots and garages, boats, yachts, crafts, and hundreds of similar areas.

Affordable Insulation

When the entire materials necessary such as heat insulation panels, adhesive, fixing elements are taken into account, the higher cost comes forth at a heat insulation job. Thanks to its practical application property, comfortable transport, and lightweight packaging,. There are many companies offering affordable spray foam inspections New Orleans. Besides, it is environmentally friendly with its recyclable packaging.

Two Components Spray Polyurethane Foam Insulation

2 component spray polyurethane foam is the one with the highest heat insulation value among three alternatives. At the same time, it has the most challenging application. It can only be applied with a particular application machine by professional teams. First of all, an experienced team arrives at the application area. It measures the meter square value of the room. The required raw material quantities are calculated. The surfaces are coated rapidly with this material with the help of a special application machine.

It is the insulation type with the highest cost. It is not preferred for smaller application areas due to its high cost. Canister type 2 component spray polyurethane foam is a new packaging type and a type in which professional type packaging (barrel) is offered similarly with the propane cylinder used in kitchens. Amateur users can also apply it. It can be carried over to narrow or small areas.

How is Spray Polyurethane Insulation Foam Applied?

The use of Spray Polyurethane Foam is quite handy compared to its equivalents. First of all, nozzle A is firmly fixed on the tip of the application gun for vertical floors. Attention is paid not to have any clearance between the nozzle and the gun. Then, the can is shaken at least 20 times. The application gun is fixed by opening the upper lid of the cap by winding up. The screw located at the gun’s backside is untightened, and the applied pressure can be adjusted as desired.

At normal conditions, it is recommended to wind up the screw to the end. Afterward, the product is applied relatively rapidly at a distance of an average of 40-45 cm from the surface. Getting close or away from the surface may introduce some disadvantages if we get closer to the surface—application thickness increases. The ideal applicant should be a thickness of a maximum of 1.5 cm on a single layer. If you conduct a thicker application as a single layer, both the heat and the sound insulation value will decrease.

The optimal application should have a thickness of 1.5 cm and in 3 layers overlapping. Then, an application could be made with the performance equal to its equivalent heat and sound insulation. In case an application is made from a distance of more than 40-45 cm, application thickness will be decreased, and therefore consumption will increase.
