Evolution of spray foam insulation arrives in Europe

Icynene formally opened the doors of its first European office in early January bringing the evolution of spray foam insulation closer to more homeowners, architects and builders.

The Great Escape

Did you know that up to 40% of a building’s energy loss can be attributed to air leakage? It is estimated that the cracks and gaps in a home – which can equate to the size of a basketball - can leak enough air to fill two blimps every day. With such significant air leakage losses occurring every day, it is important help your clients source energy efficient materials that minimize excessive energy consumption while living comfortably.

Icynene @ RESNET Conference 2013

Icynene will be showcasing the evolution of insulation at the 2013 RESNET Conference. Held at the Orlando World Center Marriott in Orlando, Florida from February 27th until March 1st 2013, the conference is considered the premier event regarding home energy ratings, commercial building energy modeling, and improving the energy efficiency of existing homes.

When specifying spray foam insulation, inclusion of additional materials may be necessary to meet code standards. Building codes are constantly changing leaving some wondering what impact new requirements may have on spray foam insulation.
