Sound Deadening with Spray Foam 

Posted by Amber Christopher July 28, 2015 Categories: Education Spray Polyurethane Application Spray Polyurethane Foam

Low pressure spray polyurethane foam (SPF) is a useful multipurpose solution that has benefits that reach beyond the traditional use as a home insulation material. Its sound deadening properties are a value-add to any application. The material can be easily sprayed into wall cavities and even into irregularly shaped areas. On the contrary, traditional insulation materials and sound deadening materials are often more cumbersome to work with and may require additional construction work if applying within an existing structure. These materials also often don’t provide as many benefits by themselves, making SPF a cost-effective, multipurpose choice for many structures.

In fact, according to the Department of Energy, up to 40% of the cost of heating and cooling a home is lost due to uncontrolled air leakage.
