Product Focus on Insulation
The April product focus features insulation products including foam insulation, SPF insulation and more.
Open Cell Spray Foam
OC No-Mix insulation is an open-cell spray foam solution for both homes and commercial structures. The high-performance material is notable for providing enhanced energy efficiency, long-term energy cost savings and an easy no-mix application. The product is ideal for application in critical insulation areas within the structure including: cavity walls, crawl spaces and attics (both vented and unvented) as well as floor, ceiling and interior roof assemblies. The spray applied material seals the structure, providing a continuous air barrier, offering exceptional performance in the reduction of heat transfer. The product also significantly reduces unmanaged moisture. The insulation offers the added benefit of noise attenuation. For more information, visit icynene-lapolla.com.
