Adhesives and Silicone can be used however it is recommended you tape the edges of the FOILBOARD with FOILBOARD tape to avoid contact with the EPS Foam.

Foam Insulation

Foam Insulation Supplier & Manufacturer in Australia

What is Foam Insulation?

Foam Insulation, also known as Spray Foam Insulation, has become more and more prevalent as a form of insulation used in residential and commercial properties. Previously, foam insulation was widely used since at least the 1940s, finding its predominant application in aircrafts until the technology developed enough to be effectively applied in homes and businesses.

Foam insulation is a liquid based form of insulation that is made by combining two ingredients together—an iso and a resin. When it is time for foam insulation to be applied by a professional installer, these two chemicals are merged to create the final material that gets applied. As a matter of fact, they are merged during the process of spraying itself, as two tubes carry the materials up together to bond through the heated gun that dispenses the insulation. This foam then expands almost instantly to fill the space to which it is applied. The size to which the foam insulation expands is dependent on whether it is open cell or closed cell. Depending on its format, foam insulation can expand up to 100 times its size when sprayed.

Due to the nature of handling and marrying the materials, a qualified foam insulation installer is required to undertake the process safely and effectively.

Foilboard® for Foam Insulation is now available in Melbourne, Adelaide, Sydney, Brisbane, Perth and all regional Towns in Australia.

How Does Foam Insulation Work?

In comparison to all other traditional forms of insulation, foam insulation is radically different. While the majority of other insulation types, including foil, fibreglass and cellulose, have been around for a lot longer and come in sheets and rolls—spray foam is a lot younger in the insulation market and comes in the form of a liquid that expands into foam and creates insulation.

Foam insulation works via the principles of conduction and convection, also known as heat transfer and air flow. Essentially, the result of effective insulation is to keep your home warm in winter and cool in summer by keeping the right air in and the wrong air out. This ensures that your living conditions remain as organically comfortable as possible.

Foam insulation can come in two variations, known as closed cell and open cell. Closed cell insulation is distinct as it is quite dense and heavy in comparison to the lightness of open cell. It is extremely durable and sturdy, creating a dense surface that offers strong weather resistance and it is largely unaffected by temperature changes. Open cell, on the other hand, is much lighter and more pliable in comparison to closed cell. Once applied, the airy composition of open cell allows the gas inside the foam insulation material to escape through its walls, creating a final product that shifts as it sets in.
