Q:  Is Airofoam imported?
A:  Airofoam is proudly Philippine-made, although 95% of raw materials are imported from Korea.

Q: What is the R-value of Airofoam?
A: (Pls. see handbook)

Q: What are Airofoam’s advantages over other insulation products?
A: (Pls. see handbook)

Q: How do you install Airofoam?
A: (Pls. See handbook)

Q: What thickness/type of Airofoam do you recommend?  Why?
A:  10mm to 15mm with double-sided pure aluminum foil.  Because these two thickness give the best value for your money!

Q: What’s the difference between single and double-sided alum foil/film?
A: Double alum performs better by providing you with a “second reflector”, since there will be two shiny sides.  An aluminum foil’s low emittance surface will release very little heat (if any) to the adjacent air space.

Q: What’s the difference between pure aluminum foil & aluminized film?
A: Aluminum foil has higher reflectance and lower emittance than aluminized film; therefore, it will definitely perform better.

Q: What is the maximum serviceable temperature of Airofoam?
A: 92oC.  Melting point is 110oC.  Flash point is above 232 oC.

Q: Won’t Airofoam melt under the roof’s intense heat during summer?
A: No, Airofoam is very stable at 70oC.  Please remember summer temperature usually peaks at 40 oC only.

Q: What is the life-span of Airofoam?
A: If properly installed, Airofoam should last more than 10 years.

Q: Can I use rugby to adhere Airofoam?
A: Yes, Airofoam will not “melt” when applied with rugby.

Q: Can I paint Airofoam?
A: Probably not, because Airofoam has anti-static properties which “repel” dust and paint.

Q: Is Airofoam safe when exposed to live wiring?
A: NO, be sure to check and seal all exposed wiring before installing Airofoam, because aluminum foil is an electrically conductive material.

Q: Why is Airofoam cheaper than the competitor?
A: Because of sales volume.  Airofoam can effectively lower its prices without sacrificing quality.  Sales volume gives Airofoam (1) the leverage in negotiating raw material prices with suppliers and (2) the edge in terms of lower overhead costs.

Q: Can Airofoam be used for sound-proofing?
A: Yes, it can be installed in-between walls to block sound transfer.

Q: If Airofoam is CFC-free, what do use as foaming agent?
A: Butane gas (Note: CFC or “chlorofluorocarbon” or “freon” is considered as the primary cause of the depletion of the earth’s ozone layer; butane, however, is a natural gas).
