Anyone tried this product? Is it any less safe or less effective than fiberglass or cellulose?

I was looking at the "rising" foam for wall cavities. I think if you filled your wall with Great Stuff it might push out your wall or crack it.

Great Stuff is a one part foam.

FOMOCO is another company that has similar product lines.

FOMO has both 1 part and 2 part systems. Have not gone through the specs to see the differencese.

It is rather pricey but I think in general, closed cell foam beats any other insulation method except, perhaps, blown in celluose.

Would the "low pressure" version maybe not push the walls or ceiling out?

I'll contact the manufacturer tomorrow and see what they have to say.
