Gary; So it could be backed up with poly and acoustic sealer so if it does break loose, you might loose insulation value but the moisture is still under control.

I think it is a lot of hype personally. Roxol is better fire and sound resistance. It is easy to remove, it also breaths well, foam has air but does it breath? Foam can be annoying to work with and repair later, removing it is difficult, i use it sparingly. To fill in gaps it is priceless, but to do you house with it is just expensive hype.
