Icynene®

ecological_insulation_icynene

  • Icynene® is foam insulation which is sprayed into walls, floors and ceilings by Icynene Licensed Dealers. We are the only licensed Icynene® dealer in Central Alabama.
  • Icynene® is a foam thermal insulation and air barrier material that is water-blown, open celled, low density and semi flexible. What does this mean to the consumer?
  • Icynene® manufactures its products with three objectives in mind – to create Healthier, Quieter, More Energy Efficient® indoor environments.

Icynene® is Healthier

  • Icynene® spray foam insulation and air barrier material delivers advanced moisture management by forming an air seal to minimize air movement and accompanying moisture. By minimizing moisture transport through the building it helps to prevent condensation and reduces the potential for mold growth.
  • Water blown means that water is the only blowing agent used in Icynene®. All foams contain what is called a blowing agent. Icynene® uses only water and no other chlorine based blowing agents, uses no CFC’s or HCFC’s and contains no formaldehyde.
  • Icynene® can help to prevent dust, allergens, and pollutants from entering the home. Particularly from the most toxic part of your home; the garage.
  • Icynene® has been chosen for inclusion in American Lung Association® Health House® projects.
  • Open celled means that the individual cells of the foam are open and contain only air and no other gases. Therefore it does not emit any detectable emissions (VOC’s) after you move into your new home.

Icynene® is Quieter

  • Icynene® is also a great sound dampener. Whether it is plumbing noise, your teenager on the phone, road noise or your favorite movie, Icynene® is perfect for dampening the sound produced by any of these “noise makers”.
  • Icynene® is perfect for specialty applications such as sound dampening in home theaters, bathrooms, playrooms, laundry rooms, master bedrooms, or between floors

Icynene® is More Energy Efficient

  • Icynene® can save you 30-50% on your monthly utility bills
  • Creating an air-sealed home with the Icynene® spray foam insulation helps to keep the oppressive summer heat and humidity out of your home. The reduced air infiltration may allow your HVAC contractor to downsize your HVAC equipment substantially.
  • The Unvented Attic Assembly that we create when we spray Icynene® to your roof decking keeps your roof from acting like a large chimney in the winter carrying your heat up and out of the house. This keeps your home more comfortable and substantially reduces your homes heating costs

More Info on Icynene®

•    Semi flexible means that the foam can adjust to the expansion and contraction of the building materials where as some other more rigid foams may not be able to make this adjustment.
•    Icynene® is sprayed in as a liquid so that it can fill all the cracks and crevices and then softly expands at a rate of 100 to 1 to create an air barrier. Whether it is warm air leaking into a cool conditioned space or whether it is cool air leaking into a warm space, either of these scenarios can lead to condensation. Icynene® forms an air seal which effectively controls this potential moisture issue. Other types of insulations cannot create this air seal.
•    Icynene® does not absorb or wick water.  Because of its open cell structure it does allow water to pass through, however once it dries it has the same properties as when it was installed.
•    Icynene® foam is inert.  It does not shrink, sag, settle, slip, turn to dust or decline in R-value over time. It offers no food value to bacteria, fungus, termites, carpenter ants or rodents.
•    Icynene® has a limited lifetime warranty
