What Is Core Foam Insulation?
Also known as injection foam, core foam insulation is quite similar to spray foam insulation in that it is applied in a wet form before drying in the space to be insulated. Unlike spray foam, injection foams are designed to be inserted into interior spaces, don’t expand as they dry and don’t off-gas (as it would be a safety hazard to seal away off-gassing insulation when you couldn’t be certain you weren’t trapping gas).
Core foam insulation thus refers to injecting a wet foam mix, not unlike shaving cream in consistency, into enclosed cavities in existing walls and other similarly sealed structures where it dries in place and creates a very effective insulating barrier.
Benefits of Core Foam Insulation
Core foam insulation installed correctly offers a high R-value per inch and a highly effective air seal against heat exchange, vapor and noise. It also works as a physical barrier discouraging pests and anything else that might occupy or pass through your walls. With a solid air seal, you can expect to see :
- Improved humidity control
- Elimination of draftiness
- Reduced allergy symptoms
- Improved indoor air quality
- Improved energy efficiency
- Prevention of mold and pests

When Is Core Foam Insulation Best?
Core foam insulation makes sense in any scenario where you want to greatly improve the insulation of a sealed cavity, such as existing walls in a home with old or inadequate insulation. A quick injection of core foam insulation can be added to your existing walls without major remodeling or the removal of existing insulation. Core foam insulation results in a superior seal and insulation compared to something like blown-in cellulose.
Core foam can be used for exterior walls and interior walls as needed, but it’s primarily used to create or improve the external air barrier of your home or business. You can think of it as providing similar benefits to spray foam insulation without leaving a visible coating or requiring heavy work on your walls to gain access.
