In order to understand how insulation works, it’s much easier if you understand heat flow. For you to successfully understand the way this works, you should know what each of these words: “Conduction” – Meaning the way heat flows through a material; “Convection” – How heat circulates through liquids and gases; and “Radiation” – Heat [...]

What is the R Values of open cell and closed cell?

Open cell spray foam has an R-value around 3.5 per inch and typically uses water as the blowing agent. Closed cell spray foam has an R-value of around 6.0 per inch (aged R-value) and uses high R-value chemical blowing agents. This information can be verified by following this link http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Spray_foams_(insulation)

The disadvantage of the closed-cell foam is that it is denser, requires more material, and therefore, is more expensive. Even though it has a better R-value, typically the cost [...]
