Spray Foam Insulation - A NEW WAY TO DESIGN HOMES.
Spray foam insulation has brought new levels of air tightness, energy efficiency, and a new level of creativity to those in the professional building industry. CPI Foam Ltd offers a selection of various products that assure builders and architects freedom in their designs, structural integrity, simplified construction, and more. The entire building process will benefit from CPI Foam Limited's Spray Foam Solutions.
Types of spray foam insulation
There are two types of spray foam insulation, open cell spray foam and closed cell spray foam.
Open cell spray foam as the name suggests consists of cells that expand and are partially open and allow water vapour to pass through. Open cell spray foam is used in applications such as attic insulation, floor insulation and roof insulation where water vapour needs to leave the structure. Open cell spray foam, when used with a specially designed NSAI Certified breathable Ventilation Card complies to the latest building regulations as an air gap can be formed between the felt and the foam to allow air to circulate and allow the timbers to breathe.
Closed cell spray foam expands less than open cell and is more compact and ridged. It is typically used to insulate steel and concrete can be used indoors and outdoors. Closed cell spray foam is the foam of choice for agricultural, commercial and industrial insulation. There are various densities available so any level of insulation of fire ratring can be achieved.
Open cell spray foam insulation
E:500 Open Cell "breathable" insulation foam is spray-applied on the job site. As it is sprayed, it increases in volume up to 100-120 times, providing a fully adhered and airtight insulation layer, preventing frozen pipes in winter and keeping your home warm and cosy.
Because it is sprayed, the foam fits all shapes, corners, and cavities perfectly. Our system is totally breathable due to the use of our own fully breathable Vent Card as seen in the breathable vent card diagram link below. This card allows us to create an air gap as per Building Regulations.

Can spray foam be sprayed directly onto felt?
To comply with Irish Building Regulations ALL types of spray foam or boards must have a 50 mm air gap, this is to ensure that the air coming in from your soffit allows the timbers to breath and eliminate any build-up of condensation.
There is only one instant when you can spray or install boards directly to breathable felt, this is when the roof has been counter battened and the 50mm air gap is on the outside of the roof.
Beware of some companies that say 'they have certification direct to felt' this is not the case for Ireland.
Always check with a qualified architect, remember it is YOUR ROOF don't be fooled.
Closed cell spray foam insulation
E:zeros E:2000 Closed Cell spray foam is spray-applied on the job site. As it is sprayed, it increases in volume up 50 times, providing a fully adhered, continuous, solid, and airtight insulation layer. Even the most minuscule cracks are perfectly sealed. Because it is sprayed, the foam fits all shapes, corners, and cavities perfectly.
We are proud to announce a new addition to our sprayed products. Desmopol is a liquid based singular component material made from pure polyurethane elastomer. Desmopol produces an elastic, continuous and completely waterproof membrane, making this product ideal for any kind of surface, whether it be a new build or a restoration.
Desmopol is weather and UV ray resistant as well as long lasting and durable. The polyurethane composition makes it compatible with all protections used in “Walk on” surfaces to achieve beautifully decorated floors and flat roofs. This makes Desmopol perfect for garden roofs, civil works, pool tiles and humid areas of any kind.

About CPI spray foam
Are a forward thinking supplier of spray foam insulation. We started looking for a solution to make homes more energy efficient, eliminate draughts, reduce air leaks, and save homeowners money on heating bills. When we looked around there was the usual rolls of nasty itchy materials and reflective rolls. There was nothing that would seal the envelope of the old and new buildings that were built to a really bad standard.
After extensive research across the world we found Huntsman USA that were at the cutting edge of energy saving spray foam products. Together with their European manufacturing facility Pur Systems GMBH Germany they developed what is now the market leading E:Zero range of spray foam insulation.
CPI FOAM LTD have built the brand to be the number one in Ireland / UK and are actively looking at more countries to distribute to. All products are CE marked and can be applied in ANY country in EU and are Green Deal UK ready and comply with the Harmonized European Standard EN: 14315-1 and European Construction Products Regulation 305/2011.
