spray foam insulation kit

If you’re new to spray foam insulation kits, knowing which product to buy might be confusing. At RHH Foam Systems, we are always happy to spend time on the phone with you talking through your project. But if you want to get up-to-speed quickly on your own, here is a quick start guide to choosing the right Versi-Foam® product.

Are you insulating a place that will be inhabited? Inhabited spaces include homes and commercial buildings where people come to work on a daily basis. Inhabited buildings need to be insulated with a Class 1 Formula closed cell spray foam. This formula is flame retardant accordance with ASTM E-84 and will limit flame spread and smoke development if exposed to a fire. All of our closed cell spray foam products are available in the Class 1 Formula. As an added bonus, all of our Class I kits are manufactured with an antimicrobial formula that stops mold from growing on the surface of the foam. This added element provides a safeguard against the growth of the five most common types of fungi found in buildings.

How dense do you want your spray foam insulation to be? Versi-Foam’s density ranges from .75 lbs per cubic foot in our open cell spray foam to 2.8 lbs per cubic foot in our high density closed cell spray foam. High density foam is used when you need extra strength for load support, roofing, or exterior applications. Lower density open cell spray foam is more flexible and will adjust itself as your structure settles over time. Standard density spray foam (1.75 lbs per cubic foot) is the most commonly used and will be the best choice for your project if you don’t need either high flexibility or high strength.

What is the size of the space you need to insulate? You want to factor in both square feet and the thickness of your application in inches. Plan to apply 3-4 inches in roof decks and 2-3 inches in the walls. Once you have this information, go to our Spray Foam Insulation Calculator and enter it. It will tell you how many kits you should purchase for each system.

Are you trying to achieve a certain level of energy efficiency in your office space or home? The primary measurement of energy efficiency is R-value which is the capacity of an insulating material to resist heat flow. A higher R-value equals higher resistance to conduction heat transfer.

Do you need to spread your work over several days? All of our spray foam kits can be shut down and used on another day except for the System 1 closed cell formula. It’s designed for smaller projects and needs to be used on the same day that it’s opened.

Are you insulating your personal property? Versi-Foam® is an excellent insulator of RVs, buses, trucks, and vans. It’s often used to insulate the sides and bottoms of pools and hot tubs and is very popular for marine flotation as well. If you need the foam to be able to flow into a cavity before solidifying, then consider using the slow rise formula which becomes tack-free in about 3 minutes instead of 30-45 seconds.

We hope this short guide helps you to find the product you need quickly. We also provide detailed instructions on our how-to page and a complete video library in English and Spanish here.  If you still have questions about selecting the right spray foam insulation kit, please call us at 1.800.657.0702. We would love to hear from you.

spray foam insulation for winter

Depending on where you live in the United States, winter may be just around the corner or it may be several weeks away.

The feeling of winter doesn’t depend on the actual temperature, it depends on how you are acclimated to a temperature range. When it hits 45 degrees in Florida in December, locals are cranking up the heat, making tea, and digging out their down jackets. In Wisconsin, we are just starting to admit that winter is coming.

If you care about your pocketbook, when it’s time to turn on the heater, you want it to its job quickly and efficiently. Money spent on warm air escaping into the attic or seeping out of windows is money you can’t spend on something that really matters to you.

With Versi-Foam® spray foam insulation you can have the best of both worlds: insulation the pros use at a price you can afford. It’s designed so that you can apply it yourself with no special training. With your welfare and warmth in mind, we’ve prepared our “Stay Warm This Winter” checklist. Here is your step-by-step guide to a well insulated winter.

The Versi-Foam® Warm Winter Checklist

1. Doors and windows. The frames around windows and doors provide an easy way for warm air to escape out of the house and for cold air to elbow its way in. This is one of the easiest air leaks to fix and we recommend starting your inspection there. Stand close to your windows and notice if there is a temperature difference between that area and the center of the room. Move the palm of your hand around the door frame to see if air from the outside is seeping in. If it is, Versi-Tite®  is our one component sealant designed specifically for small gaps and openings. It dispenses as a caulking bead and can be used around door and window framing.

2. Attics. An uninsulated attic is a money pit so most attics have some type of air barrier. However, it is still worth a few minutes of your time to go up and check the quality of the insulation. If it’s been a number of years since the attic was insulated, the insulation material may not be the most efficient or may have deteriorated over time. While you’re up there, check for holes in the ceiling and open spaces around chimneys, exhaust fans, and plumbing installations. These can be sealed easily with one of our spray foam insulation kits. You will also need a 15 minute ignition barrier for fire protection.

3. Cathedral ceilings. Rooms with cathedral ceilings can be notoriously uncomfortable in winter as the warm air rises above where people spend their time. If most of that warmth escapes through the ceiling, you can be running your furnace all day without noticing much of a difference. If you have a cathedral ceiling, check to see if the area between the roof deck and the rafter is insulated. If it’s not, once you insulate those cavities, you’ll notice the difference in the comfort level of your home.

4. Basements and crawl spaces. The first thing to do in your basement or crawl space is to check the area where the walls meet the foundation. Houses settle over time and cracks appear which need to be sealed. Next examine the openings where electrical, plumbing, or heating services enter the house. This is one of the quickest and easiest insulation jobs to perform yourself. Our video library will show you how.

5. HVAC systems. Check both your HVAC unit and your duct system. Even the most expertly designed system will lose heat if it’s not properly insulated. Expanding polyurethane foam is an excellent and easy way to seal space between the HVAC system and your walls, ceilings, and floors. Air infiltration and duct leakage put a large burden on your furnace. Our disposable foam kits can be used in tight spaces without outside sources of power or pressure.

Versi-Foam® is an expandable foam that prevents cold air infiltration by sealing gaps and crevices air tight. For more information about Versi-Foam® residential applications, visit our web page on residential insulation. Here’s wishing you the warmest of winters.

insulating a warrior homestead

Are tiny houses a solution to veteran homelessness? Glenn Grootegoed of Warrior Homesteads thinks so and he has been working to show it can be done since 2014. Warrior Homesteads builds tiny homes and works with veteran’s organizations to house homeless vets.

In 2018, the estimated number of veterans experiencing homelessnes in the U.S. was almost 38,000. (Source: HUD) According to the National Coalition for Homeless Veterans, “The most effective programs for homeless and at-risk veterans are community-based, nonprofit, ‘veterans helping veterans’ groups. Programs that seem to work best feature transitional housing with the camaraderie of living in structured, substance-free environments with fellow veterans who are succeeding at bettering themselves.”

The Kroger Veterans Association Resource Group knows this because earlier this year, they approached Warrior Homesteads with an offer to work with them to build a tiny house for a deserving veteran in the Cincinnati area. The home needed to be ready for their annual “Honoring Our Heroes” 5K Run/Walk. Versi-Foam was honored to be a small part of that effort by providing the spray foam used for the insulation of the new house.

On June 15, 2019, before the start of the 5K, a local homeless veteran was given the tiny home. It was equipped with high-quality, eco-friendly appliances. The house contained a kitchen, bathroom, full-sized bed, and storage space. And it was well insulated.

The Warrior Homestead Facebook page on May 20th said, “Thanks to our friends at VersiFoam it’s insulation day!!!!! We are working on the 2019 Kroger Honoring Our Heroes Festival and 5K tiny house project. We are huge fans of VersiFoam, as it’s simply the best!” And we are huge fans of Warrior Homesteads.

Here are some pics from the day…

spray foam insulation products

 

Versi-Foam® spray foam insulation products come in several different formulas. The formula you choose will depend on your specific needs. As you plan for your next insulation project, here are some important words and phrases to know.

Spray Foam Insulation Definitions

  1. Foam – an object formed by trapping pockets of gas in a liquid or solid.*
  1. Closed cell foam – when the pockets of gas in the foam are each completely surrounded by the solid material.*
  1. Open cell foam – when the pockets of gas in the foam connect to each other.*
  1. Density – the degree of compactness of any substance, including foam. Closed cell foam is medium density and open cell foam is low density.
  1. Permeable – when a substance allows liquids and gasses, such as air, to pass through.
  1. Heat transfer – the movement of thermal energy from one thing to another thing of different temperature.**
  1. Conduction – the movement of heat from one object to another one (when they are touching each other) that has a different temperature.***
  1. Convection – the movement of heat because of the movement of warm matter.*** A fan is an example of forced convection. Rising hot air is an example of natural convection.
  1. Radiant heating – when a hot surface warms others around it, such as a fire in a fireplace.***
  1. R-value – the capacity of an insulating material to resist heat flow.

Closed-cell foams do not have interconnected pockets, whereas the pockets in open-cell foams are interconnected. This means that within a closed cell formula, gas or liquid will not move from one cell to another, while within an open cell formula it will. To visualize an open cell foam, think of a sponge. To visualize a closed cell foam, think of a swim noodle.

This has important implications for insulation. If open cell foam becomes filled with moisture, it’s insulating properties will be reduced because that moisture will flow throughout the insulated area. On the other hand, if those pockets are filled with air the insulating properties will be increased for the same reason. If your insulating material will be exposed to moisture, you want to select a closed cell formula.

R-value is an important measurement for green building practices. It refers to how much an insulating material can resist conduction heat transfer. Conduction heat transfer moves warm air out of the building in the winter and into the building in the summer.  Again, the R-factor of closed cell spray foam is higher than that of open cell spray foam because the pockets are self-contained.

Two other methods of heat transfer exist in buildings. The first, convection, describes heat movement and can happen either naturally or artificially. The second, radiant heating, happens when heat is transferred across an open space. In this instance, energy “radiates” from the heat source. Spray foam insulation can be used to reduce heat transfer in these circumstances as well.

Here is an at-a-glance comparison of the different types of spray foam insulation products offered by Versi-Foam.

Versi-Foam® open cell foam comes in two systems: 31 and 100. #31 is a medium system that will produce 31 cubic feet of foam. #100 is a large system that will produce 100 cubic feet of foam. Both systems can be shut down and used later, although we do recommend that the product be used within 30 days of opening.

Versi-Foam® closed cell foam comes in five systems: 1, 9, 15, 50, and 700. The first four are available in both the standard and class 1 formula. They Hy-Flo system 700 is only available in class 1.

Versi-Foam® slow rise foam is available in three systems: 9, 15, and 50. Each of these is available only in the class 1 formula. High density is available in system 10 and system 33.

Spray foam insulation is a high performance material. It can fill wall cavities and voids completely. It greatly reduces or eliminates heat transfer, air flow, and moisture flow in  homes and buildings. It provides a high resistance to heat flow (R-value) for the money. 

If you have more questions about the types and uses of our spray foam insulation products, please give us a call at 1.800.657.0702. We look forward to hearing from you.

spray foam needed for boat flotation
If you are a boat owner, you need to be aware of boat flotation. Closed cell foam is an ideal product to use for buoyancy, and Versi-Foam® is one of the easiest closed cell foam kits to use for this purpose. 
 
A boat’s job is to float. The US Coast Guard requires that all boats under 20 feet in length provide level flotation. Level flotation means that if the boat is swamped it will float level and upright, which means that the flotation product must be distributed symmetrically. 
 
The Boatbuilders Handbook is published by the United States Coast Guard. Subparts F, G, and H deal with flotation requirements. The document addresses the federal regulations for boat manufacturers and is intended to help them comply with marine flotation requirements.
 
Recreational boats 20 feet and smaller are required to leave the manufacturer with foam flotation. However, there are no laws prohibiting owners from removing the flotation material. If the flotation foam is removed and the boat is sold to a new owner, they may not realize that it lacks the proper safety flotation.
 
So check your boat if you purchased it used and consider how much weight it needs to support. Has that changed since the boat was new? Do you have a heavier motor?  Do you require the foam to fill unusually shaped cavities. Answering these questions can ensure that you are using enough of the best flotation product available. 
 
In it’s excellent fact sheet, “Buoyancy in Boats”, the state government of Victoria in Australia says, “A prime function of a boat is to provide buoyancy to its occupants. A boat should float on the surface, even if it is flooded, swamped, or has capsized. Ideally the boat will stay upright, even if full of water, and will support its own weight plus the motors and occupants. This is referred to as level flotation.” They say that, even though there are other options, boat cavities “are best filled with closed-cell foam that is designed for marine use.”
 
This is something you can do yourself with Versi-Foam®. It’s definitely better than using “noodles” for boat flotation as some suggest. Closed cell foam is less susceptible than most other products to moisture intrusion. In case of leakage, closed cell foam absorbs less water than open cell foam. Our closed cell foam kits meet U.S. Coast Guard specifications for marine flotation. 

If you still have questions read our page on marine flotation
for more information about foam safety and application. Then call us at 1-800-657-0702 or contact one of our distributors to purchase the best spray foam kit for your maritime needs.

hvac insulation

Spray foam insulation kits are a convenient, economical way to insulate your commercial or residential HVAC system, increasing your level of comfort and saving money at the same time.

The purpose of an HVAC system is to regulate the temperature and quality of indoor air. It creates an artificial climate in an enclosed space. Since people today spend most of their time indoors, the effectiveness of the HVAC system is very important to their overall well-being and productivity. In addition to the human resource impacts, there are ecological factors to take into account. HVAC systems are large users of energy in commercial buildings. If they aren’t operating at peak efficiency, it will cost more to keep everyone in the building comfortable and property owners, tenants, and the environment will suffer.

One aspect of maintaining an efficient HVAC system is ensuring that it is insulated properly.There are several ways to do this, but we believe the best is with spray foam insulation. If you want to reduce movement, reduce moisture, and uphold the integrity of the building envelope, expanding polyurethane foam is an excellent way to seal HVAC penetrations in the walls, ceiling, and floors of a structure. Versi-Foam® disposable foam kits easily and conveniently insulate the heating, ventilation, and cooling system of your building. The packages are self-contained and compact which means you can take the spray foam insulation kits into small areas without worry because you don’t need access to power or pressure in order to use them. Once applied, the product helps maintain temperature, eliminate condensation, and reduce vibration.

Your heating, ventilation, and air conditioning system keeps your home or office comfortable. It’s also creates openings through which drafts can enter the interior space and reduce your comfort level. Sealing those openings with spray foam insulation will prevent air from seeping in and out of your building and save money in the long run.

Explore our spray foam video library

We wanted the new Versi-Foam website to give our customers and potential customers access to the best product information possible for polyurethane spray foam insulation. So, one of the features we have included is a video library where you can find our how-to, safety, and troubleshooting videos all in one place. If you set aside 30 minutes, you can watch all of the videos in one session and be prepared to begin your residential or commercial insulation project right away.

We recommend you begin with the first video at the top of the page. It is a higher level overview of the Versi-Foam product and how to apply it it. You’ll get an introduction to the correct safety equipment and how to wear it. Then, an experienced professional will demonstrate the application process from beginning to end, including how to treat the canisters and how to get the level of thickness you desire. You’ll also get an introduction to our patented U-Control Dispenser and see how the speed of the flow is controlled by the trigger. Toward the end, there is a short demonstration of caulking gaps and filling large voids.

If you know the size of the kit that you’ll need for your project — large, medium, or small — you can skip immediately to that video. If you are unsure, visit our product pages for area coverage or watch all three how-to videos for visual demonstrations of their size and use. 

Videos for Large, Medium, and Small Spray Foam Kits

The how-to for large kits uses the System 50 for illustrative purposes. You will get a close up look at all items included in the kit including a detailed look at the kit assembly. The demonstrator clearly shows and explains the simple step-by-step process of connecting the hoses to the tanks and testing the flow of the chemicals. Because the temperature of the chemicals is critical to the proper installation of the foam, you will see how to use the temperature strips to ensure that the foam is the right temperature for use. Watch this video if you know you are using a large kit with two tanks.

The how-to for medium kits uses the System 15 for illustrative purposes. It includes all of the same training information that is in the large kit how-to video, but the demonstrations are specific to medium sized kits. This gives you an opportunity to see how your kit will behave during use. 

The demonstration for the small kit how-to uses the System 1. The way that the dispensing device, nozzles, and tubing are used is different than the larger kits and this difference is clearly explained. The System 1 is designed to be used up on the same day that it is opened.

All Versi-Foam systems are low pressure products. As such they require specific protective equipment which includes chemical resistant safety goggles, chemical resistant protective clothing to prevent skin exposure, chemical resistant nitrile gloves, and a respirator which is approved by the National Institute of Safety and Health. The choice of respirator depends on which system you are using and under what circumstances. All of this is clearly explained and demonstrated in the video on safety equipment, which discusses each of the types of masks and when you should be using them. It also demonstrates how to fit and wear a full mask respirator and what to do if you haven’t achieved a complete seal.

Product Troubleshooting Video Library

Even with the best of preparation, sometimes the application doesn’t go exactly as planned. If that happens to you, it’s time to view the video on Product Troubleshooting. However, we recommend that you watch it before beginning with your first experience using Versi-Foam. The troubleshooting instructions are useful for preventing problems before they start. For example, the color of the foam will help you determine if all conditions are right. The foam should be light beige in color. It will be tacky in about 30 seconds and firm to the touch and fully cured in 20 minutes. If too much chemical from canister A is dispensed, the foam will be darker in color and have a crunchy, dark surface. If too much chemical from canister B is dispensed, the foam will be almost white and spongy. If you see either of these conditions, stop and take a minute to watch the video and learn how to troubleshoot the situation. There may be a problem with the temperature of one of the canisters or one of the valves may not be fully opened. Keep in mind that for maximum coverage, the temperature of the working surface should be at least 70 degrees Fahrenheit. 

Finally, when you are finished for the day, remove the mixing nozzle and apply petroleum jelly to front of gun. Then close the valves and use petroleum jelly on the valve opening. A short two minutes of your time watching the “Shutdown & Storage” video will show you everything you need to know about safely concluding your insulation project. Our video library also includes a Spanish version of “Safety Equipment”, “Product Troubleshooting”, and “Shutdown & Storage.” We invite you to visit the library at https://www.rhhfoamsystems.com/videos/ and see for yourself how easy it is to get started with Versi-Foam spray foam insulation kits.

how to go green

What do McDonald’s, Dell, Bank of America, and Honda have in common? As it turns out, they are taking the lead at the corporate level this year incorporating eco-friendly practices and finding ways to go green. They are modeling something on very large scale. But what about the average person? Have you ever wondered how to go green? Or maybe you want to take a few steps back and learn what it means to go green before you take your first action steps.

There is no agreed upon definition of going green. In general however, we talk about things like sustainability, energy efficiency, reducing, reusing, and recycling. The things that we as individuals have control over are conserving energy, reducing pollution, reducing waste, sourcing locally whenever possible, and using environmentally friendly products.

Ways to go green vary with the household, the location, and the resources available. Someone who is leasing property has fewer options than a property owner. A family living in Wisconsin will have different challenges with energy consumption than a family living in Florida. But, no matter what the individual situation there are a number of simple, inexpensive ideas that can have a big impact. In fact, if you google “how to go green”, you will have 10,450,000,000 results to choose from. Even if you only look at the results on page one, you’ll find lots of quick and easy ideas. Here are a few of them. 

How to Go Green

  1. Reduce your use of products that take up space in landfills. For example, instead of disposable plastic water bottles you might consider using a non-disposable bottle that you refill when necessary.
  2. Replace incandescent light bulbs with cooler burning bulbs.
  3. Wash clothes in cold water and air dry when possible.
  4. Install a low flow shower head and combine that with shorter showers.
  5. Walk or bike when possible, instead of driving. Use public transportation if it’s available.
  6. Set your thermostat slightly lower in the winter and slightly higher in the summer.
  7. If you are a property owner, insulate attics, basements, windows, and roofs.

At Versi-Foam, we are strong supporters of an eco-friendly lifestyle. Nearly every article written on going green mentions ways to save energy. This is our niche. Versi-Foam spray insulation keeps warm air inside during the winter and outside during the summer. Spray foam insulation saves energy, reduces the use of fossil fuels, and helps to reduce global warming gasses. In addition, we’ve developed an applicator that reduces waste — another green priority.

Going green also offers numerous benefits to you. For starters, many green practices lead to better health and a higher quality of life. Then there is the money you save, not only on your own energy costs, but with potential tax savings. For example, you may qualify for a tax credit on energy-saving home improvements. Property owners can receive a credit of up to 10% of the purchase price of qualified products up to a maximum of $500.

There as many ways to go green as there are individuals. If your eco-friendly plan includes better home insulation, visit our Dealers page to find a distributor near you.

A tight building envelope saves energy

In our energy conscious world, much has been written about R values and net zero energy buildings. People differ on the methods and timeline for achieving environmental sustainability. However, most of us understand that reducing carbon gasses from fossil fuels needs to be a priority. One important step in this direction is ensuring that your home or commercial building has a tight building envelope.

What is the building envelope?

According to Wikipedia, the building envelope “is all of the elements of the outer shell that maintain a dry, heated, or cooled indoor environment and facilitate its climate control.” It is the system of components that protects against movement of air, moisture and heat. Or to put it another way, the physical construction that separates the conditioned areas inside a building from the unconditioned areas outside of the building. Contractors and builders pay attention to the building envelope during construction when they work to eliminate openings in the foundation, walls, and roof.

Why is it important?

The air barrier system within a building envelope is a critically important element for economic control of moisture, temperature regulation, and for preserving structural integrity. An inadequate barrier system will allow leakage of air through holes, cracks, and gaps. The end result is movement of air, moisture and heat between the conditioned and unconditioned environments. An inadequate barrier system will allow heat to flow through the home and between its surroundings by conduction, convection and radiation. Simply stated, heat will always flow from hot to cold resulting in increased energy costs wherever an inadequate barrier system is present.

When this occurs, rain, groundwater, and moisture vapor cause deterioration in the building’s structure. Uncontrolled air flow makes it too cold in the winter and too hot in the summer. We become uncomfortable in our own homes. If you regularly describe your home as “too drafty”, your building envelope is probably not “tight” enough. A tight building envelope provides numerous benefits including a higher level of personal comfort, energy savings, cost savings, pest control, and fewer expensive repairs from moisture damage. The more airtight the building, the less energy it will use and the lower the cost will be for the property owners or their tenants.

What role does spray foam insulation play?

Spray foam insulation contributes to a better performing building envelope by completely sealing any gaps and crevices. This prevents air infiltration, moisture infiltration, and the intrusion of dirt and pollutants from the outdoors. The air barrier system of spray foam insulation is a critically important element for economic control of heat transfer. An inadequate barrier system will allow leakage of air through holes, leaks, cracks and gaps. This allows heat to flow through the structure and between its surroundings. Versi-Foam provides an excellent barrier system that saves both money and energy.

5 reasons to use spray foam insulation in your building envelope:

  1. The application is quick, clean, and easy — especially if you choose Versi-Foam with its patented U-Control dispenser
  2. It provides a better, longer lasting seal than other sealing products.
  3. It’s good for the environment. The energy loss from air leakage can be as much 40% in the average home. Spray foam insulation saves energy and reduces the use of fossil fuels, thereby helping to reduce global warming gasses.
  4. It absorbs noise from the outside and inhibits the transfer of sound between rooms.
  5. It’s the insulator of choice for house flippers such as The Property Brothers and Joanna Gaines.

Use Versi-Foam spray foam insulation to seal and insulate around those leaky windows, doors, attics and other areas in your home. Your home or place of business will be healthier and last longer. And you will feel better and spend less money.
