Shipping containers conversions are becoming popular for dwelling spaces. The issue with using shipping containers as a dwelling is that they develop condensation against the steel which can cause mould and rust.
Container Insulation Foam
Polyurethane spray foam offers a solution to the issue of condensation and corrosion by providing an air tight barrier between the steel and the wall cavity. This creates a drier and warmer container home than would otherwise not be possible with conventional insulation materials, which allow water vapour to condense on the steel. If conventional insulation such as polystyrene panels or fibreglass is used they still allow the warm moist air inside the container to find it way to the outer steel and condense, which can cause the home to become damp and mouldy.
Polyurethane Spray Foam is the best solution for this problem.
