The main difference between spray foam insulation and more traditional forms of insulation like fiberglass or cellulose is that spray foam insulation is an air barrier and thermal barrier all in one (with closed cell spray foam even offering a moisture barrier as well). This means that spray foam insulation does the job of providing insulation and air sealing with one product, whereas traditional forms of insulation do not provide any barrier to the flow of air. This is important for establishing a continuous and complete thermal/air barrier with the building envelope.
There are two distinct types of spray foam insulation: open cell and closed cell. Closed cell spray foam cures into a hard, rigid state whereas open cell cures with a spongy, softer feel to it. In terms of R-values, closed cell spray foam is close to R-7 per inch and open cell around R-4 per inch. Also, closed cell becomes an air barrier at only 1” of application, while it takes on average 3” of open cell foam to achieve an air barrier. Another big difference in the two is that open cell is water permeable and closed cell is not. Open cell also has soundproofing qualities that can help in dampening outside noise.
