SPRAY FOAM VS. TRADITIONAL INSULATION
For more than 30 years Demilec has been developing and improving upon its product formulas. As a result, spray foam insulation is now the superior alternative to traditional fiberglass insulation. High air permeability of traditional insulation allows air to easily pass through walls where gaps and seams exist. Differences between interior and exterior temperatures create convection currents in walls and ceilings reducing the thermal performance of traditional insulation.
The benefits of spray foam insulation far outweigh traditional fiberglass insulation.

Cutting Energy Costs through Innovation
In comparison to traditional fiberglass insulation, innovative spray foam insulation dually serves as an energy-efficient solution, while also offering a cost-saving return on your client’s investment. Your clients will save in energy costs as spray foam insulation typically pays for itself within a few years.
Spray foam insulation out-performs traditional fiberglass insulation in every measurable category, and will remain intact and last for the life of the home or building.* Spray foam will continue to efficiently insulate, whereas traditional fiberglass sags and settles, causing it to no longer perform at its original R-value.
In addition to rising costs, many homeowners are also concerned about the environment, and along with other measures are actively taking environmentally-conscious steps to recycle and repurpose.
