Spray Foam


AIR BARRIER MATERIALS Approach

Air barriers created by the use of Spray Polyurethane Foam should be the primary strategy utilized when designing high performance roof or attic assemblies. Spray polyurethane foam provides:

  • Reduced infiltration and exfiltration of both moisture and air
  • Added rack and shear strength to the assembly
  • Superior insulation properties
  • Controlled thermal loading of appliances and duct work located in the space
Air Barrier Materials Should Be:
  • Impermeable to air flow
  • Continuous over the entire building envelope
  • Able to withstand the forces that may act on them during and after construction
  • Durable over the expected lifetime of the building
In order to design and build safe, healthy, durable, comfortable, and economical buildings, airflow must be controlled. Uncontrolled airflow carries moisture that impacts a material’s long-term performance (serviceability), structural integrity (durability), indoor air quality (distribution of pollutants and location of microbial reservoirs), and thermal energy performance. One of the key strategies in the control of airflow is the use of air barriers. Air barriers are intended to resist the air pressure variations that act on them. Spray foam systems can serve as a successful air barrier, either externally applied over structural elements (closed-cell spray foam) or internally applied (closed and/or open-cell spray foam) within cavity systems at the proper thickness. Air barrier systems keep outside air out of the building enclosure or inside air from escaping the building enclosure, depending on climate or configuration. Sometimes, air barrier systems do both. Air barriers can be located anywhere in the building envelope. In cold climates, interior air barriers control the exfiltration of interior, often moisture-laden air, whereas exterior air barrier systems control the infiltration of exterior air and prevent wind-washing through cavity insulation systems.
