Traditional insulation products have lower R-values for any given thickness than FX 200 and FX 245 spray applied insulation systems. FOAMETIX® initial R values range from 4.3 to 6.7 per inch.
Traditional insulation products contain inherent gaps that allow for convection, or wind blown heat loss. As a significant percentage of energy is lost due to these convection currents, spray foam insulation systems are a better insulation option. Unlike fiberglass or cellulose, FOAMETIX® spray applied polyurethane foam systems are sprayed directly onto the surface as a liquid and expand as an insulating barrier that adheres directly to the building structure. Unlike traditional insulation, FOAMETIX® forms an airtight barrier filling all the cavities and crevices that traditional insulation cannot effectively seal.
Traditional insulation products are known to sag, settle and lose their thermal efficiency. FOAMETIX® superior insulation systems are semi flexible foams with elastic qualities that allow the foam to move with your home's natural process of shifting and settling keeping your home securely insulated year after year. FOAMETIX® closed cell spray applied polyurethane foam systems even improve the structural integrity of your home.
