InsulStar High Performance Insulation: is an environmentally-friendly closed-cell, spray-in-place insulation that controls moisture and air infiltration (see: Why Insulate) while providing energy savings and a new level of comfort. It is formulated from renewable agricultural resources and it saves homeowners significantly on energy costs compared to other common types of insulation. It stops air leakage into and out of your home, reduces noise, and blocks dust, pollen and other airborne pollutants for a more comfortable environment.
The Problem: More and more, builders and homeowners are coming to understand that without an effective air and moisture barrier, a home is subject to water damage and air leaks that cause condensation and mold growth. The results can damage the structure and reduce the life of a building, in addition to making the occupants uncomfortable and costing them money in higher energy costs.
The Solution: InsulStar is a 2 lb/ft3 density, closed-cell polyurethane foam insulation that is applied as a liquid to the wall, ceiling, attic, or floors. The liquid reacts, expands, and cures-in-place, forming a fully-adhered, seamless insulating and air blocking membrane. InsulStar also forms an air barrier that seals the walls to prevent air penetration and block outside noise pollution, giving you a quieter home. The closed-cell structure of InsulStar blocks air movement and has a low permeance, which controls moisture vapor movement, eliminating the need for an additional vapor barrier. When moisture vapor is controlled, condensation will not occur, thus eliminating the water to support mold growth. Additionally, InsulStar is blended with an anti-microbial to inhibit mold, mildew and bacterial growth.
