Open cell foam, often referred to as ½ pound foam or Icynene, is an excellent product for use in wood-framed walls, attics, cathedral ceilings and floors. Open cell provides a seamless air barrier which reduces uncontrolled air leakage, reduces energy costs, and provides increased comfort by eliminating drafts and reducing airborne noise. Open cell also expands to over 100 times its liquid form to fill nooks and crannies that can be difficult to insulate with conventional insulation or closed cell foam. Ecologic is proud to offer the following open cell foams:
