Icynene Spray Foam Insulation - SprayFoam InSEALation by Beicker Insulation

Icynene polyurethane

The concept of spray applied foam insulation to control air leakage and condensation in one application is the most appropriate approach and the most promising technology to assist in controlling the spread of mold. Developments in soft foam insulation, specifically The Icynene Insulation System, have taken an excellent concept and eliminated the restrictions previously associated with rigid foams. Not only is Icynene less costly, it has no application restrictions, and is environmentally safe because there are no emissions to affect chemically- sensitive occupants. The material is polyicynene (a water-blown polymeric material in the family of polyurethane).

The Icynene Insulation System is the only technology available that offers the utilization of water only as the blowing agent. This is important because the use of water as the blowing agent creates a unique set of performance characteristics that are particularly suited for mold control. The most important distinguishing characteristic is that water blown polyicynene is hydrophobic (not only does it resist getting wet, but once wetted it dries quickly with no deterioration in its insulation or air sealing performance). The use of water as the blowing agent results in a flexible and open celled foam. Flexibility allows movement with the rest of the building components thus preventing a potential compromise of the all important air seal. The open celled structure allows for optimum drying and shedding of water. Although open celled, this material does control air movement and leakage effectively through a matrix of fine cells. More importantly the lack of air movement increases thermal performance and when dealing with mold situations, encapsulates mold and mold spores in retrofit situations while not compromising the need for building components to breathe.
