Open cell spray foam can only be used indoors. Sealection 500 insulation has tiny open cells that trap air inside the foam to do the insulating so it has a lower density. It uses water as the blowing agent. No toxic gases are used in this process. The open cell foam can expand about 120 times itself and cures into place within seconds. Because of this expansion, the cost can be lower since you will not need as much foam. Spray foam in Kansas City is really good for an air seal and sound control between floors and outside traffic and wind noises.

Closed cell spray foam can be used both indoors and outdoors. Heatlok Soy 200 insulation has tiny cells that are closed and packed together. These tiny cells are filled with gas that helps the foam rise and expand. It can expand 30 to 40 times itself in just a few seconds so it has a higher density than open cell spray foam. Closed cell spray foam has a greater resistance to air and water vapor. The R-value for your home will increase with the insulation of the spray foam. It has a tensile strength of 25 pounds per square inch so it adds strength, but is not a structural material. If used outdoors, it needs to be protected in some form from UV light.

No matter which spray foam you choose from KC Spray Foam, you will be adding to the strength and value of your home. Give us a call and we can walk you through the process and answer any questions you may have about spray foam insulation and your home insulation.
