Q.What “R” Values can be achieved with Froth-Pak™ Insulation and Sealant?
For Froth-Pak™ Sealant the LTTR value (Long term thermal resistance) measurement at 1 inch thick is 5.3 ft²•h•°F/Btu (R value) per inch. When sprayed to 2 inches thick the LTTR value (Long term thermal resistance) measurement at 2 inch thick is 5.5 ft²•h•°F/Btu (R value) per inch which is R11.0 at 2 inches thick.
For Froth-Pak™ Insulation (Aged 180 days @ 75°F):
|Thickness (inches)||R-Value (ASTM C518, F.ft2.h/Btu)|
|1.0"||6.0 (when sprayed at 1 inch thick)|
|2.0"||12.2 (R5.6/inch when sprayed at 2 inches)|
