If you are looking for the cheapest way to insulate your cavity walls, EduFoam insulation will not be the answer. However, if you are looking for excellent thermal insulation for the life of your property, in order to save money on heating for many years to come, you may want to invest in EduFoam injected polyurethane foam.

EduFoam cavity wall insulation is injected into the cavity as a liquid through small holes in the outer brickwork, within seconds of being injected the foam will start to expand to the thickness of the cavity – moulding itself to the contours of the walls -- and will then ‘set’ into a rigid foam creating a continuous monolithic layer of insulation. The foam is injected into cavity walls through holes drilled in patterns as set out in B.S. 7456: 1991, ensuring that there are no ‘cold spots’ in the wall which could lead to problems down the line. Due to the need for skilled installation of any cavity insulation, EduFoam should only be installed by approved contractors.

As foam insulation is injected into cavity walls as a liquid, virtually any width of cavity can be insulated to a high standard – even if your home has been designated as ‘hard to treat’. Edu-Chem’s cavity wall foam has an excellent thermal conductivity value, even when compared to other polyurethane foams, meaning that even narrow cavity walls can achieve a high degree of thermal insulation quickly and easily.

EduFoam cavity wall insulation has many benefits over other forms of insulation, including:

  • Excellent insulation values and savings on heating – even with narrow cavities
  • High return on investment – little or no loss of properties over time, giving lifelong savings
  • Stabilises existing cavity walls – strength of the foam restores the stability of cavity walls, even where existing wall ties have corroded
  • High water resistance – helps protect against wind-driven rain and even flooding, and will not lose any insulation properties even after being submersed in water
