OK Wall Foam installs Tripolymer Injection Foam Insulation (also known as Tripolymer 105), one of the safest and most eco-friendly wall insulation materials available. This insulation is commonly used in walls of hospitals, schools, airports, businesses, and homes across the United States! It’s sought after for many reasons.
Why Injection Foam Insulation?
Tripolymer 105 is proven to keep the summer heat and the winter cold out of your home better than the other insulations on the market. Our customers report saving up to 60% on their utility bills after we install their insulation. On top of that, those expensive air conditioners and heaters aren’t working as hard, so they’re going to last a lot longer, too.
Tripolymer Injection Foam has been insulating walls for close to 50 years, and repeated research and tests have proven the substance to be extremely fire resistant. (Many other types of insulation are actually flammable!) In fact, when Tripolymer 105 has been installed and assessed in test walls by independent laboratories, fire safety ratings have more than doubled. The walls were twice as safe with the Tripolymer foam than without it!
Urea formaldehyde foam products (which used to be the most common wall insulation) generally decompose over time. Samples of Tripolymer 105 foam, on the other hand, that have been installed behind cement for over 25 years, show virtually no evidence of decay or damage from bacteria, water, or other building materials. Our Tripolymer is just as effective after all that time as it is the day it was installed!
Safe for the Environment
Tripolymer Foam is manufactured with organic materials. It is non-toxic and bio-degradable, so there are no disposal problems. It has no CFC’s, and it releases no harmful gasses into the environment when it contacts fire or heat. Tripolymer 105 is a dry powder that is added to water just prior to application, so it takes up less room during shipping and disposal, therefore utilizing less energy and creating less waste than other insulations.
This is one of the immediate benefits of the insulation that our customers often report. Tripolymer foam has a high STC (sound transmission class) rating of 53, and is estimated to reduce outside noises by 80 percent.
Tripolymer Injection Foam can be installed into nearly every building material. Whether your home or business is brick, stone, masonry block core, vinyl, or anything else, we can inject Tripolymer foam. We modify our equipment based on your building materials, and when we leave you will not be able to see we have been there! You will only know by your reduced utility bills and quieter house.
Our Injection Foam Installation Process
The injection foam installation process is a straightforward process and in most instances can be completed within a day and entirely from the outside. Wall foam can be used in any type of home: brick, stucco, stone, vinyl siding, aluminum siding, wooden siding, shingle and more!
Our trained and certified installers will insulate the walls of your home from the exterior using a process that is much less invasive than competitive products. Before leaving, the installer will clean the inside and outside of the home, dispose of any debris and ensure you are completely satisfied with the work.
Procedures vary when insulating homes, as every home is of different construction.
- For houses with vinyl siding, our trained technicians will start by carefully removing a few siding panels.
- Small holes are then drilled into the exterior wallboards between the studs. (For masonry walls (brick, block, stone, etc.), smaller holes are drilled into mortar joints.)
- A hose is used to inject Tripolymer insulation, completely filling the open spaces of the wall cavity.
- All gaps in the closed cavity are safely filled which prevents the flow of air through your walls.
- The holes are plugged, excess biodegradable insulation is washed away and your siding is re-attached. Only you will know the installation was done. (For brick, block, and stone walls, the mortar is color matched and professionally patched and repointed.)
