Spray Foam vs Traditional Fibreglass Insulation

INJECT MORE THAN 30 YEARS OF INNOVATIVE SCIENCE INTO YOUR PROJECTS

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

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 client's insulation investment compared to traditional fibreglass insulation.

In addition, spray foam insulation will out-perform traditional fibreglass 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 fibreglass sags and settles, causing it to no longer perform at its original insulating performance. Home and property owners are increasingly conscious of the environment and spray foam insulation gives them an outstanding way to be more eco-friendly.
