CertaSpray X (CSX) open cell spray foam insulation from CertainTeed helps contractors save time in stopping drafts and noise while also complying with fire protection codes. The polyurethane spray foam insulation meets the requirements of AC377 Appendix X, so it can be installed in attics and crawlspaces without the need for an additional ignition barrier or intumescent coating, reducing the risk of callbacks and failed inspections. CSX also cures to a distinctive mocha color, making it easily identifiable to building inspectors. CertaSpray X meets ICC-ES code requirements for thermal and moisture protections, minimizes thermal bridging to save up to 20 percent in heating and cooling costs, the manufacturer says, and can contribute to the requirements for an Energy Star home.
