Room Temperature Foam | Applegate Spray Foam

Re-Insulation for Existing Homes What is "Flash and Blow"?

"Flash and Blow" is the application of a thin (usually 1") layer (FLASH) of NO Heat Spray Foam to seal the thermal envelope and then BLOWn-in insulation to complete the solution. This is a highly cost-effective way to maximize the clients ROI (Return On Investment) using the very best technologies on the market.

  • "Flash and Blow" provides an air barrier and vapor retarder to control the diffusive transport of water vapor along with lower cost R-value insulation
  • 1" ccfoam is an air barrier at 1" and a Class II vapor retarder with 2" of ccfoam.
Applegate® Spray Foam is the perfect solution.

Our Room Temperature Foam (RTF) System is the very latest in Spray Foam Technology and optimizes the cost for both the Insulation Contractor and Consumer.

Sold in "sets" in 10 gallons each, this product is perfect for the vast majority of retrofit spray foam upgrades consumers are looking for in this tough economy.

Per The Dow Chemical Company for Froth Kits: The theoretical yield has become an industry standard for identifying certain sizes of two-component kits. Figures are from ideal test lab conditions for temperature, humidity, and surface conditions, etc. Typical yield is averaged at 85% of stated theoretical yield.

*Small project home is using a 725 sq ft home. Attic area 33 ft x 22 ft = 726 sq ft, coverage to apply 1" monolithic coating of foam PLUS Rim Joist coverage of 110 bd. ft. (perimeter of home 22+33+22+33 = 110), therefore 726 bd. ft. + 110 bd. ft. = 836 bd. ft.
