    Are there different types of spray foam insulation?  I’ve heard about closed cell and open cell but I’m not sure of the difference.  Thanks

  • MIR use closed cell spray foam in the most part. Open cell is generally used in situations where there is a need for the material to which the spray foam is attached to breath.

    • The more airtight the envelope of the building is the more energy efficient it is.  Doors, windows, M&E penetrations are generally responsible for excessive air leakage.

  • Has anyone come across the new type of spray insulation that is a combination glass bead material and spray adhesive that was applied to exterior of air conditioning ducts and required only 1/8″ thickness? It is also used for exterior wall insulation again with minimal thickness. Product was a result of NASA research
