Green Planet Insulation is a member and certified contractor company of Canadian UrethaneFoam Contractor Association (CUFCA) which operates under the requirements of CAN/ULCS705.2. All products we use have been approved by the Canadian Construction Materials Centre(CCMC) and with help of CUFCA’s technical committee and board of directors, we have accessto the natural, soy-based and top quality polyurethane foam in Canada (2lb Medium Density orclose cell and 0.5lb low Density or open cell).
Closed-cell or 2lb Medium Density foam is non-porous, and not moisture-penetrable, CCMCapproved for use in any buildings. It meets CAN/ULC S705.1 material specification withexcellent insulating properties (High R-Value, 5 to 8 per inch, and service range temperature of-60°C to +80°C). Unlike, other insulation materials, closed-cell or 2lb Medium Density foamdoes not settle over time and it has excellent air and water barrier properties.Open-cell or 0.5lb low Density foam expands rapidly to larger size as soon as it installs on walland it acts more as sound barrier which can effectively reduce airborne sound transmission.Closed-cell foams are superior insulators; while open-cell foams typically have R-values of 3 to4 per inch (RSI-0.53 to RSI-0.70 per inch), closed-cell foams can attain R-values of 5 to 8 perinch (RSI-0.88 to RSI-1.41 per inch). This is important if space is limited, because it allows athinner layer of insulation to be used. Closed-cell foam is very strong, and structurally reinforcesthe insulated surface. By contrast, open-cell foam is soft when cured, with little structuralstrength.
