Spray Foam vs Traditional Fiberglass Insulation

INJECT MORE THAN 30 YEARS OF INNOVATIVE SCIENCE INTO YOUR PROJECTS

Spray foam insulation is now the superior performing alternative to traditional fiberglass insulation. For over three decades, Demilec has been improving product formulas in the U.S. and Canada.

The high air permeability of traditional insulation allows air to easily pass through walls where gaps and seams exist. Differences between interior and exterior temperatures create convection currents in walls and ceilings, reducing the thermal performance of traditional insulation.

CUT ENERGY COSTS, REDUCE ENVIRONMENTAL IMPACT

Spray foam insulation can offer a significant return on your clients' insulation investment compared to traditional fiberglass insulation.

In addition, spray foam insulation will out-perform traditional fiberglass insulation in every way, and will remain intact for the life of the home or building*. Spray foam will continue to efficiently insulate, whereas traditional fiberglass sags and settles, causing it to no longer perform at its original R-value. Home and property owners are increasingly conscious of the environment, and spray foam insulation gives them an outstanding way to be more eco-friendly.
