Sealing the Deal – Innovations in Air Sealing – Part 2 of 2
Most builders understand that when it comes to energy-efficient building envelopes, insulation is only half of the equation. Air sealing is key to achieving high-performance envelopes, and building codes have started setting thresholds for airtightness. Conventional air sealing involves manually sealing cracks and penetrations, often with canned spray foam insulation; however, the results are often highly variable. A promising newer approach uses aerosolized particles to seal gaps from the inside.
We will walk through an air barrier process, how it works, the best time(s) to apply, and system capabilities.
