Named after its unique insulation system, Icynene, Inc. creates energy-efficient, healthy, peaceful homes and buildings through superior insulation performance.
Its core product, The Icynene Insulation System?, is a water-based insulation formula that contains no formaldehyde, CFCs or HCFCs. It is a spray-in-place, light density foam that expands 100 times its initial volume in seconds to form a soft, flexible sealant. Icynene Inc’s success in the building industry is a result of its unique ability – to seal homes, prevent air leakage and create healthier, more energy-efficient living environments.
Once applied, Icynene insulation acts as an air barrier – it has extremely low air permeability. This provides homeowners with superior control of air leakage, sound and reduced condensation in the walls, attics and crawlspaces/basements. This superior ability reduces energy bills, helps soundproof rooms and improves indoor air quality by preventing the growth of mold/mildew.
With Icynene insulation, heating and cooling costs are typically reduced by 30 to 50 percent, and smaller, less expensive heating and cooling equipment can be used. When installing a complete insulation system, builders also save on time and reduce costs associated with other types of insulation. In one step, Icynene replaces building wrap, fiberglass, polyethylene air barrier, tape and canned foam.
Icynene insulation has been extensively tested and is recognized as safe by the U.S. Department of Energy’s Oak Ridge National Laboratories, The National Association of Home Builders Research Center, and the Florida Solar Energy Center in Cape Canaveral. Complying with the BOCA, SBCCI, IBC and the ICBO Uniform Building Codes and the National Building Code of Canada, Icynene insulation has been evaluated by the Council of American Building Officials’ National Evaluation Service. Most recently, NASA also approved the use of Icynene.
In addition to its list of credentials, Icynene Inc. and its insulation system participate in a series of health, environmental and building projects. It was selected for use in demonstration Health Houses (American Lung Association), Habitat For Humanity, The Farm House (Boulder, Co.) and is a support sponsor of Bob Vila’s datCOM dreamHOME.
A North American company founded in 1985, Icynene Inc. operates throughout the United States, Canada, Mexico, Japan and Korea. The Icynene Insulation System is professionally installed by trained and licensed dealers of Icynene Inc.
