    Demilec Spray Foam Technology

    We went in to see if the spray foam technology is hazardous and how it stacks up to others in the marketplace. What we came to find out is that the product is safe to use and is rapidly becomming the choice for engineers and general contractors who have been looking for a safe and fast alternative in the spray foam market for years.

    The headline risk of such a product of course brings a lot of worries and a lot of the reviews stated that the product was safe and viable after proper testing over the years. We however at CNN wanted to make sure for ourselves.

    Demilec has a product called APX and we compared this product to their competitors. While a home without the insulation had some issues as there was 48% less insulated support without the use of the APX foam. When Demilecs revolutionary open cell spray foam was used in the attic without an ignition barrier it also passed our stringest test requirements that are implemented by the international code council. The air sealing, lower heating, and cooling all passed. This product is also compliant for School classrooms, private offices, and of course single family residences.
