Gaco 052N Open Cell Foam 

Gaco 052N is a water-blown, spray-applied system that cures to a semi-rigid low-density foam. The cured product is dimensionally stable in all weather conditions and its insulating properties do not significantly diminish over time. Gaco 052N is safe for the environment, containing no CFC’s, HCFC’s, HFC’s, formaldehyde or ozone depleting chemicals. Gaco 052N is a Class I fire rated foam and meets the requirements of ICC-ES AC377 Acceptance Criteria for Foam Plastic Insulation.

TECHNICAL INFORMATION: Gaco 052N forms a completely sealed air barrier in wall cavities and can be used to fill 2” x 6” stud wall construction in a single application. Its performance is superior to commonly used fiberglass batting or loose fill insulation. It adheres well to most building materials and will provide a continuous barrier against air infiltration for the life of the building. Gaco 052N is semi-rigid in nature but is flexible enough to withstand normal expansion and contraction of building components. Yields up to 15,000 board feet per set (1,020 Lbs.) are possible under optimum conditions.
