Foamox 500 Interior/Exterior Spray Foam
Foamox™500 is an open-cell spray foam. It is extremely economical and can hugely reduce the amount of unmanaged moisture and air infiltration.
Foamox™500 is applied using a spray gun. It is applied as a liquid and within seconds, it expands to 150 times its liquid volume. The foam is sprayed directly onto the substrate which forms a permanent seal over the most difficult shapes in a seamless fashion.
This seal increases energy efficiency and really improves the quality of air indoors by eliminating the movement of air through walls. The performance of Foamox™500 will be consistent throughout the lifetime of the building.
In order to meet building code requirements, Foamox™500 has been put through extensive testing to ensure its non-toxic nature. It has been developed with the environment in mind and as a result, no toxins are emitted after installation.
The foam insulation industry and the benefits of foam insulation are growing every day. Especially with the increasing impact of green building, heating and cooling costs and the rise of fuel prices.
There is a new, slightly different foam insulation formulation that is growing in popularity due to budget restrictions or more difficult residential and commercial insulation jobs. It is called Injection Foam Insulation, or sometimes referred to as Pour-in-Place Foam Insulation.
This Injection Foam method allows the consumer to benefit from foam insulation that is injected through a hole into the wall cavity, as opposed to being sprayed directly into open wall/stud cavities (new construction).
Injection Foam Insulation Benefits
- Is Not A Urea formaldehyde based foam
- Environmentally Safe
- Excellent Noise Reduction
- Does Not Compress or Settle
- No Thermal Degradation
Application of Injection Foamox™500 Retrofit
This particular type of injection foam is delivered through small holes that have been drilled through the interior or exterior of the building. The foam is simply injected through the small holes in a liquid state and it flows down the wall cavity to the floor. Then a reaction will take place and the liquid will begin to expand, rising and filling the entire area of the wall cavity.
This style of insulating can be extremely helpful as it can be used for certain jobs where regular spray foam is no practical. The entire process can be carried out without the removal of any existing interior or exterior walls.
