Environmental Benefits of Icynene

Icynene delivers high-performance solutions for efficient building envelopes, thermal comfort and a healthy indoor environment - all of which are integral components of green building.

100% water blown. It does not contain synthetic blowing agents such as HFCs that are often used in other spray foam products and are considered to have very high Global Warming Potential (GWP) gases.

No PBDEs. This is considered a harmful flame retardant that can compromise the health of building occupants. Icynene is a Class 1 fire rated product without the use of PBDEs.

Superior air-sealing capabilities. Icynene locks out dust, allergens and pollutants from entering the building creating a healthier indoor environment. Creating a superior air-seal in just one step, Icynene also minimizes the use of excess sealing materials which would otherwise be required when using conventional insulation such as fiberglass.

Up to 50% energy savings. Icynene air-seals and can help reduce energy use and costs by as much as 50%. In turn, it helps reduce the production of greenhouse gases like Carbon Dioxide by thousands of tones a year.1

Real R-value. Icynene maintains its performance (doesn't sag or settle) with no loss of R-value over time. It provides total thermal comfort today and for years to come, while conventional insulation can deteriorate as time passes and may no longer perform as it did when initially installed. Selecting products that provide longevity, like Icynene, can potentially eliminate the need for the installation/re-installation of additional material in the future.
