Comparing Closed-Cell Spray Foam Manufacturers and Suppliers
You have told us that the chemicals are in short supply or not available at all for closed cell spray foam, My project involves mostly closed cell so, I’m trying to understand the facts about the quality of the product I will be putting in my framing cavities. I understand that Honeywell is the major supplier of the blowing agent for closed cell and currently they are not able to provide it. I was told by Victory Polymers that unless the insulation Contractor has his own stock no new stock is available. Should I be concerned about which spray foam brand name the Contractor is using as long as it is closed cell or open cell? I would really like to use a closed cell that is using HFO as a blowing agent, due to the higher R value. But from what I hear it is completely unavailable. Looking at their specifications the R values differ slightly other than that I don’t know what I should be concerned about regarding the different makers? So far it seems most of the local installers are using Victory or Thermoseal.
Thank you, Kevin
