What is Lapolla foam
Steve Jewell, CEO of
SWIS-Lapolla UK & EU,
answers all of your foaminsulation questions
The Lapolla product is a spray
polyurethane foam, which comes in an
open cell and a closed-cell version.
Spray Foam is a superior insulation
product that is sprayed in place and
fully adheres the substrate, forming a
cellular plastic that will last as long as
the structure. The product won't slip,
degrade, or get dirty and wet, like many
traditional insulations, which will
si niﬁcantly deteriorate its o erall
performance. Spray Foam will stop
air inﬁltration apour and oisture
transmission and provide a seamless
blanket of insulation, to help keep
conditioned air in and unwanted air out.
