Advanced Fireproofing And Insulation has been Appling K-13 Insulation for 30 years.

K-13 insulation is the spray-applied commercial cellulose insulation tailored to your specific project requirements. Serving as an exposed finish requiring no additional materials, K-13 meets specifications for insulation (R-value), noise reduction (NRC), color, durability, condensation control, texture, and aesthetics. Additionally, K-13 usually provides these features at lower installed prices than many common alternatives. It is applied to virtually any properly prepared surface and configuration. K-13 can be sprayed up to 5″ thick in one application without mechanical support. For higher r-value requirements, K-13 High-R System can provide R-values exceeding R-30.

K-13 is a total system of recycled natural fibers, chemical treatment, binding system and application method. The K-13 system begins with specially prepared cellulose fibers which are chemically treated. K-13 is produced in a strict, quality controlled manufacturing process.

 

Advanced Fireproofing And Insulation is a licensed applicators utilizing approved fiber machines and nozzles for control of the fiber/binder ratio. During application, the K-13 fibers are combined with a patented adhesive. The finished product is a strong, durable monolithic coating of a predetermined thickness.

Core Foam and Insul Smart are the most technically advanced injection foam insulation products and equipment on the market today. Core Foam and Insul Smart are a 2-part foam system that combines a unique spray-dried polymeric resin with a foaming catalyst to produce a “dry” foam that is unmatched in the industry.

All Core Foam and Insul Smart products are shipped to the installer where they are easily mixed prior to each job ensuring product freshness and consistency. When combined with compressed air using specialized equipment, the foam insulation flows throughout the wall filling any irregular voids and hard-to-reach spaces resulting in a building that is well-insulated, quiet and energy efficient.

All Core Foam and Insul Smart products are Class A Fire Rated. Testing by accredited laboratories shows compliance with all I-Codes, e.g. IBC, IRC and IECC.

The injection foam products do not use any ozone-depleting chemicals as part of their formulation. The blowing agent used for these foam products is compressed air.

 

 

Spray foam insulation or spray polyurethane foam (SPF) is an alternative to traditional building insulation such as fiberglass. A two-component mixture composed of isocyanate and polyol resin comes together at the tip of a gun, and forms an expanding foam that is sprayed onto roof tiles, concrete slabs or into wall cavities.

“Spray foam” is also an informal term used to refer to various plastic foam materials that are used in building construction to provide thermal insulation and minimize air infiltration.

Spray polyurethane foam (SPF) insulation can be categorized into two different types: light-density open-cell spray foam insulation and medium-density closed-cell spray foam insulation. Both types of SPF are thermoset cellular plastics comprising millions of small cells.[7]

Open cell spray polyurethane foam insulation being applied in wall cavities.
Open cell insulation can be crushed in your hand and has a lower insulation value. Closed cell is rigid to the touch and each air cell is completely sealed. Closed cell foam has a higher R-value.
Medium-Density Closed-Cell Spray Foam (ccSPF)

Medium-density closed-cell foam insulation is often referred to as two pound (2 lb) foam. It is a rigid insulating material with a Long Term Thermal Resistance (LTTR) R-value that ranges between 5.1 – 6 per inch[9] when the required minimum thickness of 50 mm is installed, ccSPF is both a vapour barrier and an air barrier.

Typically the foam’s natural colour is yellow.

Light-Density Open-Cell Spray Foam (ocSPF)
Light-density open-cell SPF is commonly known as half-pound foam. It is a semi-rigid material with a sponge-like appearance that expands during installation and creates small, open cells that are filled with carbon dioxide. Due to its ability to expand during the application process, it fills cracks, crevices and voids and adheres to irregular surfaces or substrates to form an air sealing insulation.[12]

While the R-value will vary, most ocSPF products have an R-value of around 3.8 per inch. Unlike medium-density closed-cell SPF, ocSPF is not a vapour barrier. When installed at 5.5 inches or more, ocSPF does act as an air barrier. It is often used for interior walls because it provides sound reduction by blocking and absorbing air leakage. It is usually only recommended for indoor applications.
