Open vs. Closed Cell Spray Foam Insulation                             

Comparing Open Cell vs. Closed Cell Insulation

When you evaluate open cell vs. closed cell insulation, there are cost differences that you may consider when designing your next project. A light density, open-cell spray foam insulation like Icynene Classic, can be installed at a significantly lower cost than a closed-cell foam in projects targeting the same R-Value specification. Some restriction may apply with interior space limitations.

Let’s take a look at open-cell vs. closed cell insulation.

  • If the design is not limited by space constraints, Icynene Classic provides greater value per “R” required. Achieved R-20 in 2x6 walls (Steel Framing Members)
  • Icynene Classic foam is a proven performer that delivers cost effective solutions for many applications in today’s buildings
  • Code compliant design details are available for most applications
  • Icynene Classic spray foam has unique attributes that make it the best choice for some applications
