In a 4 inch thick wall, injection foam achieves an R-Value of R-16. That means it is efficient and that it can provide insulation from heat in such harsh summers that occurs in Connecticut every year. Plus, it works perfectly for bigger buildings, providing same protection, insulation and efficiency as small houses.
And when applied to a 6 inch thick wall, it can achieve an amazing R-Value of R-24!
Injection foam also contains three EPA listed antifungal additives and is tested for termite and mold resistance, rendering a safer, better house.

What is injection foam?
NASA developed injection foam in the 1970’s. But soon it was discovered that it can provide great benefits to both regular and scientifical purposes. After that, that method started being used in environments such as studded walls and cathedral ceilings. It is also used in insulating concrete block walls in commercial applications such as in big box stores and in residential retrofit block/stucco walls. Injection foam can also be used to insulate the cavity behind brick walls.
It also provides great sound isolation, making it perfect for environments such as apartment buildings and houses that are very near to each other. Or when you just want to keep external sounds from entering your house, making it perfect for studios and radio stations.
So versatile it can be used to re-insulate existing homes that contain little or no insulation. Even if the wall cavities are filled with ineffective insulation.
Injection foam insulation is perfect for improving thermal insulation or for sound reduction from either inside the home or the exterior.
Injection foam can be injected from the interior or exterior of a home or commercial building. As well as through existing brick walls.
