Icynene stands behind their high-performance insulation products
Icynene® Insulation Products
Icynene's array of insulation products are designed to let you have greater control over the indoor environment. Each product is tailored to accommodate different project sizes and types, yet they all have one attribute in common -- they perform as a continuous insulation and air barrier material. Whether your project calls for ICYNENE LD-C-50™ (spray or pour formula), ICYNENE LD-R-50™ renewable-based spray foam or ICYNENE MD-R-200™, you can create an energy-efficient, comfortable environment... with air that is healthier to breathe. Icynene's insulation and air-sealing products provide a protective barrier to the entry of outdoor allergens and pollutants.
Icynene manufactures its products with three objectives in mind - to create Healthier, Quieter, More Energy Efficient® indoor environments. Icynene's products are suitable for steel- or wood- framed residential or commercial construction. Every Icynene product is created so that trade professionals and homeowners can reap the benefits of a comfortable, energy efficient and healthier indoor environment. And for a more eco-conscious option, Icynene offers ICYNENE LD-R-50™ - an environmentally preferable, renewable-based spray foam insulation and air barrier material.
Applied as a liquid, Icynene® expands to 100 times its volume in seconds to fill every crack and crevice while remaining flexible so that the integrity of the building envelope seal remains intact over time. Icynene's spray formula has an R-value of 3.7 per inch. It acts as a complete insulation and air barrier to minimize air leakage and seal the building envelope for optimal airtightness.
ICYNENE LD-R-50™ is Icynene's next generation of high-performance insulation. ICYNENE LD-R-50™ is a renewable-based foam insulation and air barrier material that is responsibly made using castor oil and offers numerous environmental benefits.
Castor oil has been used in place of a portion of the petroleum-based polyol. ICYNENE LD-R-50™ exceeds the minimum renewable requirement for a bio-based material (testing in accordance with ASTM D 6866) and can contribute toward a building's achievement of credits/points under various national green building standards, including LEED for Homes, LEED-NC, LEED for Schools, and the ICC 700 National Green Building Standard. Extracted from the castor plant, castor oil is a natural ingredient that is safe enough for use in personal care products such as lip balm. Production of the castor plant has low energy dependence and requires no pesticides, fungicides or man-made irrigation. The castor oil used for ICYNENE LD-R-50™ has a make-up which is extremely consistent year over year, from location to location and has a higher yield by weight (~40%) than soya oil (~17%).
Key benefits for homeowners, building professionals, architects:
- It is an Environmentally Preferable Product (CHPS EQ 2.2 Section 01350 Compliant) that is 100% water-blown, free from HFCs and PBDEs.
- It insulates and air-seals in one step for maximum energy conservation while minimizing the environmental impact.
- By significantly reducing air leakage, ICYNENE LD-R-50™ contributes to a healthier, quieter and more comfortable indoor environment, while reducing energy consumption and related greenhouse gas emissions by as much as 50%.
ICYNENE MD-R-200™ is a 100% water-blown, medium density spray foam insulation and air barrier material that contributes to a Healthier, Quieter, More Energy Efficient® building. Its performance advantages such as high insulation R-value, low vapor permeance and ability to deliver additional load capacity translate into long-term building protection. Responsibly made using recycled material, MD-R-200's climate friendly, HFC-free formulation allows a building to be insulated and air-sealed for superior energy conservation while minimizing environmental impact.
