Icynene®'s ''Green'' Properties

The Icynene Insulation System® is recognized across North America for contributing to improved indoor air quality. Its “green” properties have drawn much attention with many healthy building initiatives such as the American Lung Association's Health House® projects. This national education program was created by the American Lung Association of Minnesota to raise the standards for healthier indoor environments. As a member of the United States Green Building Council (USGBC), Icynene reinforces its commitment to learning about sustainable building practices so that we are better able to provide a premium insulation that is uniquely suited to meeting your needs. The USGBC indicates that materials selected in buildings have a tremendous impact on the environment and that there are numerous ways to lessen that impact. The following is the USGBC's list of characteristics that qualify a building product as “green.” This chart also demonstrates how Icynene measures against these established criteria.

USGBC ''Green'' Material Characteristics Icynene ''Green'' Properties
1) Use of less resource-intensive building materials/systems Icynene is a complete insulation and air barrier system which eliminates the need for excess sealing material
2) Use of products that carry minimum environmental burdens Icynene expands to 100 times its volume. It is 99% air and 1% material. This dramatically reduces the waste volume in comparison to other materials
3)Use of low environmental-impact materials Icynene is a 100% water-blown environmentally-friendly product
