Healthier Air Quality

The right insulation does for our home what our skin does for our bodies.  It can help regulate temperature, moisture and overall health.

What makes Icynene the right insulation?

  • Icynene is 100% water-blown foam insulation and does not off gas into the indoor environment. Icynene is HFC-free: HFCs are often used as a blowing agent in other foams and are considered to be high Global Warming Potential (GWP) gases.
  • Icynene is a Class 1 fire rated product without the use of PBDEs. Used as flame retardants in building products, PBDEs are considered to be harmful for the health of building occupants.
  • Icynene is a qualified air barrier that minimizes the intrusion of outdoor allergens and pollutants.
  • Tests have confirmed that Icynene is not a food source for mold

I am SO glad I decided to use Icynene to insulate the entire envelope of my house. We did a full-renovation, and the 100% air barrier has been fabulous. Ameri-spec tested our house for the federal renovation grant, and said we were more heat efficient than most of the new "green" homes going up on the west side. Icynene definitely contributed to the $3800 rebate we got.
