The loss of R-value over time in foam insulation that contains captive blowing agents (extruded polystyrene insulation, PIC, ccSPF). Air enters the cells of the foam, diluting or replacing the lower-conductivity blowing agent. The rate and extent of thermal drift depends on multiple factors including exposure conditions, the thickness of installed insulation, and the particular chemical composition of a given foam product.
