The benefits of foam insulation are becoming better known every day. Especially with rising fuel prices, increased heating and cooling costs, and the positive environmental impact of green building practices.
For some budget conscious or more difficult residential and commercial insulation jobs, a slightly different foam formulation and application process is growing in popularity. It is called Injection Foam Insulation, or sometimes referred to as Pour-in-Place Foam Insulation. Injection Foam Suppliers

Injection Foam Process
The material is delivered through small holes drilled through the outside of the building. It is pre-expanded to avoid damage from expansion, whereas sprayed in place foams typically expand anywhere from 30-100 times their liquid state.
Once the liquid foam is poured, or injected in place through the small drilled hole in the wall. It flows down the wall cavity to the floor, where it then begins to react and rise up to completely fill all the areas in the wall cavity. Watch Injection Foam Videos to see the process live.
Injection Foam is a great compliment to a spray foam operation, as it is often less expensive to install, and it can be used in certain jobs and areas where regular spray foam is not practical. Injection Foam is great for retrofit jobs requiring better insulation without removal of the existing interior or exterior wall sheathings.
