Spray Foam Insulation can’t be left exposed to an occupied space. Ener-Spray uses a Spray on Mineral Fibre Thermal Barrier or Cementitious Thermal Barrier to cover exposed spray foam so it meets the building code in areas that won’t be dry walled. Ener-Spray has worked with building officials and suppliers to come up with an effective system that works and is cost effective. Both materials used comply with CAN/ULC S124 "Standard Method of Test for the Evaluation of Protective Coverings for Foamed Plastic".
Thermal barrier fireproofing is a common solution in colder climates of Alberta and Sasketchewan as the underlying 2 lb foam insulation provides the highest R-Value insulation. The foam insulation lacks the appropriate fire retarding properties; that's what the Cementitious or Mineral Wool material adds to the foam insulation. Mineral Glass insulation is an alternative insulation but is rarely used in Canada outside of BC's Lower Mainland.
The underlying foam insulation does not decompose, deteriorate, off-gas or change in R-Value as it is completely sealed from UV rays. Overall, the combination is an excellent way of insulating, sealing and fireproofing for a lengthy if not indefinate period withot any change in R-value.
