Icynene's Green Credentials

The Icynene products we use are 100% water blown and contain no HFC’s or HCFC’s which means that there are no harmful gasses which can be released into the air you breathe...only Icynene can boast this quality.  

HFC-134a has a Global Warming Potential of 1,430, meaning that it’s 1,430 times as potent as carbon dioxide (which is defined as having a GWP of 1). Nearly all closed-cell SPF is made with the blowing agent HFC-245fa, which has a GWP of 1,030 and to us that is not acceptable...Icynene has a GWP of 1.

Cured Icynene contains no formaldehyde or Volatile Organic Compounds. It has been thoroughly evaluated for in-situ emissions by industry and government experts. VOC emissions are below 1/100 of the safe concentration level within hours following its application.

Most importantly, Icynene carries out the role of an insulation and an air barrier in one, this results in a much more energy efficient building, greatly reducing the building whole life carbon emissions.
