A High Performance Closed-Cell, Spray-In-Place Insulation Providing A Seamless Air Barrier And Dampproofing In One Application.

For insulating exterior masonry walls or cavity walls, there is no better choice than InsulBloc. InsulBloc is a 2 lb/ft density, spray-in-place closed-cell foam that forms a fully-adhered and seamless insulating, dampproffing, and air blocking membrane. InsulBloc offers higher R-values per unit thickness than can be achieved with any other type of commercially available insulation. InsulBloc can be applied to any masonry or construction material including concrete block, concrete brick, steel, wood, laminates, and exterior sheathing boards, and it conforms to any design shape, insulating around brick ties, corners, angles and curves. InsulBloc leaves no gaps or joints, eliminating thermal bridging and thermal bypass associated with perdormed boards.

InsulBloc In An Exterior Masonry Caving Stud Wall
Design with the studs offset by 1″ from the masonry wall, InsulBloc is applied to the masonry surface, expanding out to form a seamless membrane, sealing between the wall and the studs. Additionally, the membrane seals the wall to floor and wall to roof deck joints. InsulBloc has no thermal or moisture gaps resulting in superior thermal control with air barrier and Class II vapor retarder. In one simple step, InsulBloc provides multiple benefits.
