- airKrete® is a non-toxic insulation that is easily inserted into open and closed cavities such as walls, roofs, and ceilings. airKrete® is installed as a foam with the consistency of shaving cream, which then hardens into a stable foam. It has a high thermal efficiency, is sound-absorbing and fire-proof. Its basic components are air, water, and cement, making it cost-effective and environmentally safe. It’s resistant to mold growth in 95% relative humidity. airKrete® requires professional installation.

- airKrete® has gained a following both for environmental and health reasons. It is an inorganic foam produced from magnesium oxide (derived from sea water). It is foamed under pressure with a microscopic cell generator and compressed air; no CFCs or HCFCs are used. Because of its inorganic composition, airKrete® has very low VOC emissions, is totally inert, and non-combustible. It is foamed in place in closed wall or masonry block cavities, or behind mesh in open cavities to form a lightweight and rigid, but very friable, foam.

- While newer and less well known, airKrete® is a thermally efficient and non-toxic spray insulation that is easily foamed into open or closed cavities in walls, roofs and ceilings. The product’s basic raw material components are air, water and cement which, when combined, create a cost-effective, safe and high performance product. The National Audubon Society installed airKrete® in its New York City headquarters as part of an overhaul designed to “green up” that organization’s entire operation.
