Which is Right For My Project?

Open and closed cell foams each have their own set of benefits and weaknesses. There is not one that is overall better than the other; one application may be more suitable for a project than the other and vice versa

Benefits of Closed Cell Foam

Closed cell spray foam is rigid, so it naturally increases the structural integrity of your space. Because the cells/bubbles are completely closed, this product is waterproof. That means that water and moisture leave your insulation unaffected.

  • Density of 2 pounds per cubic foot
  • Excellent waterproof barrier
  • 183M is a Class A (Class 1) fire rated foam and is safe to the environment.
  • It meets the requirements of Appendix X for use in attic and crawl spaces without a n additional ignition barrier.
  • As an ABAA Evaluated Material as part of an ABAA Evaluated Assembly, 183M Closed Cell Foam is approved for use in air barrier systems.
  • 183M is UL GREENGUARD® and GREENGUARD® Gold certified.

Benefits of Open Cell Foam

Open cell spray foams greatly expand upon application, so it fills in even the tiniest of spaces. Nooks, crannies, cracks, and crevices are all very hard to fill with closed cell spray foam. Open cell foam is also a great natural soundproofing system, as just one application fills in the entire area between studs.

  • Density of a 1/2 pound per cubic foot
  • Excellent sound barrier
  • 052N is a water-blown, spray-applied system that cures to a semi-rigid low-density foam.
