Lightbulb Homesulate (Insulation)

Have any heard or had experience with this product? (for home or trailer)

I notice their website does not dwell much at all on the R-Value which they tout as equaling R-5.5 per inch, or at least it seems that is what they are saying. But they don't say it very prominently. (I would think that is an excellent result if actually true).

Also they say their product is non-corrosive to wood and steel studding, It would be critical to know if the same non-corrosiveness applies to aluminum.

It is said to not expand inside the wall, just fill and (I guess) firm up to some extent.

Wall Foam Insulation for Existing Homes

BTW I find that this forum has no sub-catagory for "Insulation" related threads. It should...mods!

further info on this type of insulating foam.

Tripolymer Description | Tripolymer Injection Foam

Of course my interest is how it might work in an Airstream.
It needs a wall thickness void of about 1" to "flow" downward. What is the void thickness in one of our Airstreams?

However the data video shows it being added to walls that already contain glass batts and it flows down, apparently in front (or back) of the batts.

Might only be feasible for insertion in Airstream walls that have been emptied of the glass insulation. If that's the case we probably won't see much use in our trailers.

Also correction to my above post. The R-value stated is 5.1 per inch (not 5.5)

Zero cavity, so that stuffed this idea.

A shame its not available as a DIY product, imagine the stories of good foam gone bad (dibbs on the reality TeeVee Series) from those Weekend 911 calls!
