Re: Sprayed Air Barrier.

Interior or exterior?
Interior is either closed cell foam at a minimum of 1.5 inch while open cell must be 4" thick - if water or moisture is a concern you need to use closed cell
Exterior I can't say I have had the pleasure yet but the results are really good plus they do a good job of eliminating flashing / lapping mistakes commonly seen
Radiant coatings do not count unless tested & to my knowledge none have

Re: Sprayed Air Barrier.

Interior I think would be called fireproofing, the exterior is the air barrier.
