Block Fill Foam
THE WORLD’S BEST INSULATION.
THE WORLD’S BEST
Vastly superior to traditional urea-formaldehyde foams, PolyMaster foamed-in-place products have a decades-long track record of proven success. Success that’s based upon our products working hard for our customers. Autozone, WAL-MART, CVS, Lowe’s, and Babies R Us, just for starters.
PolyMaster foam products are consistently the superior performers in every critical category, and in virtually every application. Non-toxic, odor-free, with no CFC’s. Installing cleanly and quickly, without
disrupting other site work. Absolutely unique in the world marketplace.
PolyMaster R-501 is the ideal insulation for concrete block. By top fill, side fill, or “pressure fill.” It can be installed in 10-foot to 16-foot lifts during construction. Blocks are easily filled in either running or stacked configurations. Pressure-fill applications require only 5/8″ holes drilled directly into masonry. Pre-expanded PolyMaster foam flows into and fills cavities, up to 12 feet vertically from the insertion hole. Pressure filling generates a complete fill of the core and head joints, since the foam moves
unrestricted throughout the block wall.

PolyMaster R-501 latex foam is the world’s best-performing thermal insulation. Among its many positive attributes is an exceptional R-value, generated by the unique PolyMaster chemistry.
Success Story – A new $9 million Missouri ice skating rink challenged the builder to create a masonry and ribbed-steel panelled structure with R-20 insulation values for economical operation. He chose PolyMaster R-501 for its compatibility with unlike materials, R-values, and fast, easy installation that wouldn’t slow down the project. PolyMaster performed perfectly.
PolyMaster R-501 latex foam has excellent sound-deadening qualities, filling the tiniest voids in concrete block. PolyMaster’s Sound Transmission Classification (STC) is 52, similar to that of sand.
Success Story – A large outdoor pump created a sound pollution problem for a Tennessee company. A freestanding wall of 8-inch block was erected in front of the pump, and the wall was filled with PolyMaster R-501 in an hour and a half. Problem solved.
PolyMaster R-501 latex foam contains no pesticides and therefore can not kill insects or repel them chemically. But our foam’s composition tends to keep them from gaining entry through PolyMaster-insulated areas.
Success Story – The owner of several large chicken houses needed to maintain the perfect temperature for his egg-laying hens, while eliminating the beetles that were thriving by eating the walls. PolyMaster R-501 was installed from the top of the structures. Both problems were solved efficiently, cleanly and economically.
WYTHE OR WITHOUT
PolyMaster R-501 latex foam completely fills cavities between double walls, fascia walls, or internal/external cosmetic walls, producing perfect seals around fittings, conduit, fixtures, and pipe chases, while still allowing the wall to weep as constructed. PolyMaster delivers R-values comparable to or higher than rigid board insulation, without environmental damage. When added to the block and wythe cavity of an 8-1-1.4 CMU wall, PolyMaster R-501 yields an R-value of 22. It’s also flame resistant and meets Class 1 fire ratings. (PolyMaster recommends damp-proofing the block as a matter of course.)
PolyMaster latex foams are in compliance with regulations around the globe. Non-toxic, non-corrosive and biodegradable, PolyMaster is earth-friendly and environmentally green.
