Cmu Block Foam

Looking to hear from anyone familiar with CFI Corefoam and or Polymaster 501. I have recently ran into projects that calls for one or the other.

Polymaster R-501 provides an R-Value of 11.05 in a 8" CMU block wall

CFI Corefoam provides R-Values of "8 to 10" for 8" CMU block wall

From an installers perspective what are the pros and cons of each product.. I am interested in everything from differences in preparing and installing each product, install problems, supplier support or lack thereof, etc.
