ICYNENE® BENEFITS

Lowers Risk by increasing the tolerance of the building:

  • Air barrier properties minimize random air leakage and the potential for condensation
  • Has wetting and drying potential
  • Not a food source for mold (Texas Tech University)

Reduces comfort callbacks often blamed on HVAC, but are due to thermal envelope issues:

  • Decreased cost for warranty issues
  • Increased customer satisfaction
    • Lower sales/marketing costs

Significantly contributes to Energy Star certification which provided access to Energy Efficient mortgages:

  • More buyers qualify for home purchases
  • Enhances re-sale value, increases pricing power
  • Icynene® installs correctly in any situation
    • Compression, misalignment, air intrusion, voids and gaps are no longer an insulation issue

Benefits to You:

  • Lowers your risk by increasing the tolerance of the building
  • Reduces callback warranty costs
  • Increases customer satisfaction
  • Increasing customer pool
  • Enhancing pricing power and brand image
  • Potential cost reductions in HVAC and other areas

Healthier - Superior Indoor Air, Low Environmental Impact®

The time spent indoors should help to maintain occupant health and well-being.  That's why it is important to select building products like Icynene® soft foam insulation and air barrier system, which was manufactured with health and well-being in mind.

Icynene® contributes to a healthy indoor environment in three critical ways:

1). Icynene® is 100% water-blown and does not emit harmful gases once cured.

Icynene® contains no ozone-depleting substances and does not off-gas over time, unlike some conventional insulation that can deteriorate as time passes.  Icynene® maintains its efficiency with no loss of R-value to provide healthy indoor air (and energy savings) for its occupants today and for years to come. Selecting products that provide longevity, like Icynene®, reduces the impact on the environment because it eliminates the need for the installation of additional material in the future.

2). Icynene® creates a continuous air barrier in the walls, ceilings and floors, which minimizes the intrusion of outdoor allergens and pollutants.

3) As an integrated insulation and air barrier, Icynene® effectively minimizes air leakage and accompanying moisture (air leakage accounts for as much as 99% of moisture movement in a structure).  So effective is Icynene® at minimizing condensation, moisture build-up, and the growth of mold or mildew, the product is often specified for use in museums, art galleries, and libraries where condensation control is critical to preserving the integrity of valuable collections.

Quieter - Minimizing Noise Pollution with Icynene®

The Icynene® Insulation System® significantly minimizes unwanted sounds that can invade living spaces, creating a much more enjoyable indoor environment. Icynene® helps to reduce noise levels that originate from within building structures (like home theaters and children's play areas) as well as those that originate from the external environment (such as street traffic or airports).

Icynene® is ideal for application where quiet is a must. When Icynene® is sprayed into walls, ceilings and floors, building occupants notice a significant reduction of airborne sound (human speech, stereos, plumbing runs and outdoor noise) and flanking sound transmission (sound transmitted through the building structure).

More Energy Efficient – The Icynene® Insulation System®

With energy costs taking such a huge bite out of the monthly budget, it's little surprise that energy efficiency is the top consideration among those who are considering insulation options.

Using Icynene® soft foam insulation and air barrier system is one of the best ways to improve energy efficiency and thermal comfort. As a complete insulation and air barrier, Icynene® minimizes air leakage in the building structure, which allows for HVAC equipment rightsizing. This saves dramatically on initial equipment costs and ongoing utility costs - Icynene® can save up to 50% every month in energy costs versus traditional energy options.

When taking into consideration all other costs associated with creating an airtight thermal envelope, it becomes obvious why Icynene® is the preferred insulation that guarantees increased energy efficiency. With Icynene®'s exclusive 31-Day Payback Formula, we can help you calculate the cost of The Icynene® Insulation System versus traditional insulation options. This formula takes into account all of the variables that impact the efficiency of insulation, so a more accurate comparison can be made.
