Icynene LD-R-50 earns USDA BioPreferred Status

ICYNENE LD-R-50™ spray foam insulation has earned the United States Department of Agriculture’s BioPreferred status for use of rapidly renewable materials.  The insulation uses castor oil instead of petroleum based polyols.  Castor oil is a safe natural ingredient that is found in common products such as lip balm.  The castor plant is grown on marginal cropland, is not a food source, and requires little if any irrigation or pesticides.

ICYNENE LD-R-50™ is a spray applied thermal insulation that is also an air barrier system. It insulates and air-seals in one step for maximum energy conservation while minimizing the environmental impact during manufacturing and construction.  All Icynene® spray foam insulation products are 100% water blown and contain no HCFC’s or PBDE’s.
