Deitch Custom Homes takes insulating and sealing its homes seriously. We also consider the environment in all of the products we install in our homes. This is why we are proud to offer Core Filled Foam as a standard feature in all of the homes we build. Core-Fill 500™ is a superior insulation material for use in commercial and industrial construction and has excellent thermal and acoustical properties. It is a two-component system consisting of an amino-plast resin and a catalyst foaming agent surfactant. These two components, when properly ratioed and propelled by compressed air, produce a foam insulation having the appearance of shaving cream.

Performance Characteristics

Core-Fill 500™ is a fire-rated, Class A building material for use in concrete masonry blocks, brick cavity wall systems and for cavity spaces between brick and blocks. It sets cold in 10 to 60 seconds upon leaving the application hose nozzle and does not expand any further, so enclosed spaces may be filled without pressure build-up. Before setting, the foam flows easily to fill the total cavity regardless of its shape or the presence of obstructions such as pipes, wires, conduit, trash in the wall or electrical boxes.

Advantages

Core-Fill 500™ offers proven performance as an insulating material. It combines a superior R-Value with the unique ability to completely fill and seal voids – a true advantage when dealing with masonry construction. Core-Fill 500™ deadens sound very efficiently, and because it is applied under pressure, the foam fills irregular spaces with ease. Core-Fill 500™ does not settle or escape if a penetration in the wall is made (unlike loose-fill insulation products), thus remaining effective for the life of the building. Most important, it is cost-competitive with any other masonry insulation method.  Since it contains no polystyrenes, polyisocyanurates, polyurethane or petrochemicals, it offers superior fire safety characteristics and is completely safe for the environment.
