A: Thank you for your interest in Lifeproof Carpet Cushion. The difference in R-value between 1.4 and 2 is so negligible, you would not even notice a difference. Too be honest, not even worth the debate. However, where you would notice differences, is how much drier the subfloor would be using the Lifeproof Carpet Cushion. Benefitting from having air channels means moisture vapor moves more freely and subfloors stay dry. Lifeproof Carpet Cushion is completely waterproof because it is comprised of polyethylene foam which is the same material as a pool noodle, which as you would imagine, is ideal for moisture applications. The biggest challenge with these underlayments using a moisture membrane/barrier, is if the layer is compromised in any way during installation, it is useless. Also, If there is a substantial water leak, the material in the underlayment (urethane foam), acts like a sponge, soaking up moisture, creating an ideal environment for mold, mildew and bacteria. In addition to moisture control, sound dampening should be important to you. Get excited because Lifeproof CC has the highest recorded acoustical rating in the carpet underlayment category at 93 dB. The reality is, there have been significant technological advancements in recent years for carpet undetlayments. Why get stuck in the past using old carpet cushion technology?

A: Thank you for your interest in Lifeproof Carpet Cushion. Lifeproof CC is different than traditional urethane carpet underlayments. Lifeproof CC is compromised polyethylene foam, which is closed-cell technology and firmer. The polymer molecules are cross-linked providing more rigidity, and therefore this foam is often referred to as "crosslink" or "crosslink polyethylene" foam. The crosslink nature of this foam type causes it to try very hard to rebound to its original shape quickly. These characteristics make it an ideal composition for underlayment.
