InsulBloc 101: Say Goodbye to Common Commercial Construction Issues

Condensation in exterior walls is a common problem perpetuated by the high heat transfer rate of standard concrete walls. Commercial buildings also suffer from gaps and holes in insulation at wall joints and places where two different building products meet. Both of these problems can place limitations on design options and make it necessary to use only flat walls and surfaces. However, the innovative product InsulBlock eliminates these problems and opens up a whole new array of design possibilities.

InsulBloc is a spray polyurethane foam insulation that can be applied to most any gap or surface. It is applied as a liquid, and shortly after application, expands to form a foam that seals and fills seams and holes. Unlike fiberglass insulation, it does not suffer from gaps at joints. In fact, it seals these joints, adding extra structural reinforcement to the building.

What are the results of using InsulBloc materials for your construction projects? With spray foam insulation, you don't have to worry about the condensation that builds up in exterior walls due to the high heat transfer rate, because this heat transfer rate is reduced by the InsulBloc. Additionally, InsulBloc keeps moisture levels down to prevent mold growth and water damage. InsulBloc also allows you to create designs with more openness, since it readily seals gaps between different products. You don't have to depend on only right angles for room construction anymore. InsulBloc reduces energy costs and makes buildings more airtight to allergens, which can help improve the comfort and productivity of workers in commercial buildings.
