Types of Insulation
Nowadays the three common types of insulation used are foam, fiberglass and cellulose. Foam insulation can be presented in spray or injection foam. Each has particular use: spray foam is to be spray in an open cavity, for example in new constructions, crawl spaces or attics; the foam is sprayed and it expands filling cavities. Injection foam is preferable for existing cavities, being useful for walls and ceilings.
Spray foam insulation is made of water-blown and organic chemical compounds extracted from petroleum derivative. Injection foam is made of a tri-polymer blend dry powder resin. When the resin mixes to agents that produce foam and water, the polymer becomes to what is known as “retrofoam injection foam insulation”. It has a creamy appearance as well as consistency. It is perfect to fill nooks and crannies of existing walls.
Fiberglass insulation is made of plastic reinforced using tiny glass fibers. The plastic composition is great offering extra strength to surfaces; the composition also improves the capacity of insulation of the material. This fiberglass comes in batts and rolls. It can be used to cover unfinished ceilings, walls, or floors, being fitted in studs, beams and joists, which secure the effectiveness of the procedure.
Cellulose on it sides is composed by 75 to 85 percent recycled paper fiber…in fact, your old newspapers might be being reused right now on several walls! The other 15 percent of the mixture that composes cellulose is a fire retardant: it can be boric acid or ammonium sulfate. To apply cellulose insulation, filling or blowing might be done. Cellulose can be loose-fill in cavities; or it can be blown in those cavities. The best practice is to enclose existing walls or to open new wall cavities. It can also be used in unfinished attic floors.
