Tiger Foam Insulation™ quick curing, recyclable, two-component spray polyurethane foam insulation kits are manufactured to ASTM E-84 Specifications and classified as a fire-rated foam insulation. (www.tigerfoam.com)

Once we decided to go with spray foam, it was not that much of a leap to decide to go with the denser of the two types of spray foam. There are two basic types of spray foams you will find on the market used for home insulation. They are basically referred to as ½ lb and 2 lb spray foam and while they are similar in the way they are applied, there are some differences. The primary being that the 2 lb has a higher R-value and does not require vapor barrier.

One product that caught my eye when researching spray foam was a product called Tiger Foam. It is a closed cell polyurethane foam insulation which means it is a 2lb foam so it does not require the vapor barrier. It is a two part kit that is available in a two sizes for the do it yourselfer. The two components are mixed as they are sprayed and expand about 8 times their volume. As it expands, it will hopefully fill every nook and cranny giving the best possible seal. With an advertised R-value of R-7 per inch, how could you go wrong?
