Injection foam insulation is sometimes referred to as injected foam or injectable foam insulation. Whatever term you use, this relatively new type of home insulation is gaining a strong following among homeowners who want to make their homes more comfortable and less expensive to heat and cool.

Injected or injectable spray foam insulation is not the same as expanding spray foam insulation, even though the two materials look alike. Expanding spray foam (aka spray polyurethane foam, or SPF) does what its name suggests, expanding after it’s applied, sticking to the surfaces it contacts, and then hardening to form a permanent insulation, air, and moisture barrier.

Because of its expansive force, this type of foam can’t be injected into enclosed building cavities because it will cause gypsum board or sheathing to bow or pop away from the framing it’s attached to.

We install injection foam insulation that’s safe and effective

Air Krete® insulation for Glenview

Air Krete® Injection Foam is non-toxic, fast, economical, and efficient. Unlike messy polyurethane-based foams, it is a cementitious foam that actually absorbs Carbon pollution from the atmosphere. It just takes 3 steps to surround your living space with foam insulation that stops drafts, increases the thermal resistance (R-value), and cuts the cost of staying comfortable.

Air Krete insulation

Air Krete® Injection Foam is a non-expanding injectable foam insulation that provides all the advantages of spray foam insulation with none of the risks. Air Krete® is:

  • Super energy efficient. Like spray foam insulation, Air Krete® combines the benefits of air sealing with high R-value. The injection foam effectively seals around edges to protect against infiltrating air. Air Krete® is rated at R-3.9 at 2.07lbs/ft3.
  • Fire-resistant, mold-proof, pest-deterring. Air Krete® uses a fire-stop material and passed a 2-hour fire wall test. The injection foam material has proven to be resistant to mold growth at both 75% and 95% relative humidity. Air Krete® is also pest resistant because of its deoiling/drying effect on pests.
  • Perfect for retrofit applications. Many 2-part foams can’t be sprayed into a finished wood-frame wall because high expansion rates will cause the wallboard to bow or even pop off the wall. Air Krete® is non-expanding and is extremely flexible. It’s designed to flow and fill around electrical wires, outlet boxes and existing underperforming insulation. It’s a great way to give an existing house a comfort and energy-efficiency makeover.

Injection foam is ideal for insulating wall cavities

Air Krete® insulation for Highland Park

A no-mess retrofit solution. The average Air Krete® injection foam application in a home takes less than two days and is applied through the exterior walls and in the attic to deliver comfortable living and energy savings.

Injection foam does not expand after it’s applied, so it won’t cause damage when injected into a wall cavity or other building cavity. In fact, the foam has ideal qualities for upgrading wall insulation levels. (It’s sometimes referred to as “wall injection foam.”) Once holes are drilled in the wall (from inside or outside the house) to provide access to each stud bay, an application hose is inserted and the injection foam is applied.

With the consistency of shaving cream, the foam can totally fill an empty cavity or flow around an existing fiberglass batt, eliminating air spaces (voids) and sealing all air leaks before the foam hardens. Access holes are filled with wood or foam plugs when the installation is complete.

Injection foam can transform leaky, energy-wasting walls into airtight, well-insulated walls that improve interior comfort and reduce monthly utility expenses.

Unlike SPF, the injectable foam is not super-sticky and difficult to remove when excess foam attaches itself to finished surfaces. Injection foam simply washes off with water. It’s safe during and after installation because it outgases no harmful fumes.
