Quick Colour Reference
Comparison of Physical Properties

  • Low density foam. R-Value of R 3.9 per inch

Low Density foam is an open cell product that requires a vapour barrier to be installed over the top in contrast to a medium density foam such as Polarfoam. This Foam inflates to as much as 130 times its original volume in a matter of seconds. During the expansion process it will completely seal any gaps, cracks or voids preventing any air leakage.

Low Density foam is also a good option for sound attenuation as it eliminates vibration of any plumbing or duct work or sounds of people walking or talking

 A wise choice for almost any project and  is a much more cost effective solution for those with tight budgets.
