BASF, the global leader in polyurethane foam insulation, introduces ENERTITE® spray-applied polyurethane foam insulation as a complement to its complete line of SPF products. ENERTITE is an open-cell foam that insulates while providing other high-performance benefits, including sound absorption, healthier indoor air quality, and protection from thermal leaks. As a result, homeowners can look forward to significantly lower utility costs, energy savings and other benefits. The water-blown foam is said to flow easily into difficult to reach areas and creates a seamless seal. Compared to fiberglass and cellulose, the foam is said to outperform in terms of insulating value by creating a more airtight building envelope and preventing thermal leaks.
Coupled with the proper mechanical ventilation, ENERTITE can provide improved air quality by inhibiting mold and mildew growth. It also effectively absorbs sound, making living spaces quieter and markedly improving acoustical performance in areas such as home theaters. It maintains its form and high-performance characteristics over time and will not deteriorate or sag. The product's long-term performance is backed by a limited lifetime warranty.
