FAQ on Insulating Foam for Walls

What is Tripolymer Inc. Injection Foam Insulation?

Tripolymer Inc’s wall foam is made from the same family of thermosetting plastics as billiard balls and some fire-proof coatings. It’s safe, non-toxic and eco-friendly.

Is Tripolymer Inc. Injection Foam Insulation a urea formaldehyde-based foam?

Tripolymer Inc. Injection Foam Insulation does not use raw formalin in the manufacturing process. (Ambient formaldehyde levels occur in parts per billion as in water, air, hair, and etc.) It is safe, water soluble during installation, biodegradable, and does not emit toxic gasses during or after installation.

Will this damage my walls?

No, our installers are trained and certified in the injection foam process. Unlike polyurethane foams sprayed in attics or open cavities, Tripolymer Inc. Injection Foam Insulation is totally expanded upon leaving our installation equipment. No further expansion occurs so there is no risk of blowing out walls due to foam expansion.

What is Tripolymer Inc. Injection Foam Insulation R-value? Why is it important?

R-value is the standard measure of thermal resistance – resistance in temperature movement in your walls. The higher the R-Value, the better the energy efficiency will be. Our R-value of 5.1 per inch is higher because it fills more of your wall cavity and has a higher density.

I have fiberglass insulation in my walls. Isn’t that enough?

A big part of what keeps your A/C or heater running overtime is heat and air transfer through your walls. Even though your existing fiberglass or cellulose insulation meets minimum R-value standards, it typically has a poor heat and air transfer rate. You can significantly reduce energy bills with a solid content insulation such as Tripolymer Inc. Injection Foam Insulation.

I spoke with a contractor who wants to use cellulose as my wall insulation. How is Tripolymer Inc. Injection Foam Insulation better?

First, dense-packed cellulose cannot be inserted in walls with existing fiberglass or old cellulose insulation. Tripolymer Inc. Injection Foam Insulation shines when installed over old insulation and has much better air infiltration reduction qualities.”

Second, Tripolymer Inc.’s wall foam has an R-value, the standard measurement of thermal resistance, of 5.1 per inch, 25% above the best blown-in cellulose. Tripolymer Inc. Injection Foam Insulation is not subject to mold growth as with cellulose and has a far superior fire resistance.

Can Tripolymer Inc. Injection Foam Insulation leak out of an existing hole in my wall?

No. Tripolymer Inc. Injection Foam Insulation becomes a solid within seconds of installation and becomes a fundamental part of your wall system.

Can Tripolymer Inc. Injection Foam Insulation increase the fire safety rating of my home?

Yes. Tripolymer Inc. Injection Foam Insulation can help prevent the spread of first through the walls of your home. View our fire resistance video.
