Wrapsulate® Foam Jacket
One Product, Four Control Layers
Introducing Wrapsulate® Foam Jacket
Wrapsulate is a new, CCMC approved, 1 pcf water- blown, open-cell spray polyurethane foam insulation. Wrapsulate combines some of the physical traits of other products that are already familiar in the construction industry. However, it is also unique in that it is an open- cell spray polyurethane foam that can be used in exterior applications. When used in an exterior application, Wrapsulate creates a "Foam Jacket" around the building structure. That foam jacket provides all four of the basic control functions required of the building enclosure.
The Four Basic Control Functions
Water Control Layer
Wrapsulate provides the water control layer. The material's surface rapidly sheds water. The body of the foam does not readily wick water and it is resistant to
water penetration under head pressures. Wrapsulate foam creates a continuous drainage plane over the surface of the assembly.
Thermal Control Layer
Wrapsulate acts as the thermal control layer. Wrapsulate is a water-blown foam insulation that provides competitive thermal resistance with the lowest possible Ozone Depletion and Global Warming Potentials (lowest ODP and GWP). Wrapsulate foam creates a continuous insulation layer over the building.
Seamless Fully-Adhered Air Barrier
Wrapsulate provides a seamless fully-adhered air barrier at thicknesses over 1.5 in. The foam aggressively bonds to most substrates, sealing small holes an cracks, to create a continuous air barrier system that is integral with the thermal control layer.
Water Vapour Control Layer
Wrapsulate encourages drying of the wall assembly. The product has a relatively high water vapor permeance so, while air cannot move through it, water vapor can diffuse, facilitating drying of any built-in or incidental moisture, just like high quality outdoor gear.
