This question is asked often as customers try to decide which foam insulation will work best in their business. They want to know how the two compare before they finalize this decision to ensure they are making the right choice. The following discusses the main differences between the two insulation foams…
The difference is in the bubbles. You read that right– bubbles. Spray foam consists of a bunch of small cells (or bubbles) that make up the foam material. Open-cell spray foams have cells that remain open. This makes the foam soft and flexible. Closed-cell foams have cells that close and press firmly together upon installation. As a result, the foam becomes stiff. The density between the two differs– open-cell foam, with all its bubbles, is the less dense of the two. Generally, the density of closed-cell foam is around 1.75 pounds per cubic foot whereas the density of an open cell foam is about half a pound per cubic foot.
