There are 2 Types of Spray Foam Insulation
Spray foam insulation comes in two different types- closed cell and open cell spray foams. Their key characteristics are as follows:
Closed-cell spray foam expands to nearly 35-50 times its original volume. When using the closed-cell spray foam, about 90% of the cells are sealed, which makes the foam impermeable to moisture, vapor, rodents, etc. It is usually used on surfaces that do not have any wood and timber, as it does not allow moisture to travel freely. This makes timber moist and week. So, it is usually used on metal surfaces like commercial warehouses, boats, etc.
Open-cell spray foam expands to 100 times once applied to the surface. The mixture is delivered to the surface using water. Once applied, the mixture expands and forms an open-celled matrix which is flexible and breathable. The interconnected air cells trap the airflow and make it an excellent thermal barrier. However, unlike the closed cell spray foam, it is semi-permeable to moisture and vapor. This helps moisture to travel freely and is ideal for wooden and timber surfaces. This type of insulation is used for most home insulation.
