Insulation is a material that is used to stop heat, electricity, or sound from entering or escaping from another area or substance. Most people think of insulation as it relates to homes and other buildings.
Blanket insulation is the most common type of insulation. It is made of flexible fibers, usually fiberglass. Concrete blocks are sometimes insulated when used to build home foundations and walls. Foam boards or rigid panels of insulation also can be used to insulate a building and are made of polystyrene, polyisocyanurate (polyiso), and polyurethane. In addition, insulating concrete forms (ICFs) are forms for poured concrete walls, and loose-fill insulation consists of small particles of foam or other materials. Other types of insulation include fibrous boards and liquid foam. Finally, structural insulated panels (SIPs) are prefabricated insulated material.
