Icynene ProSeal Eco wins industry innovation award
Icynene ProSeal Eco™, the first 100% water-blown closed cell medium density spray foam insulation certified for use in buildings in North America, has won a 2014 Product Innovation Award from industry publication Architectural Products in the Thermal/Moisture Protection category.
Considered a smarter, environmentally responsible alternative for the standard chemically-based medium density, closed-cell spray foam insulation products, Icynene ProSeal Eco™ provides an excellent R-Value*, superior adhesion performance and can be applied at temperatures as low as 5oF. Icynene ProSeal Eco has been comprehensively tested in a range of ASTM E119 approved wall assemblies with cost effective materials resulting in a wider range of commercial application possibilities.
The Architectural Products Product Innovation Awards determine and honor innovation in the development and refinement of building-related products that range the gamut from cladding systems to interior finishes. Judged by a group of 50 independent industry professionals, the program represents, a mechanism to impartially review product and present to readers items their peers found innovative and worth investigating.
* R means resistance to heat flow. The higher the R-value, the greater the insulating power. Compare insulation R-values before you buy. There are other factors to consider. The amount of insulation you need depends mainly on the climate you live in. Also, your fuel savings from insulation will depend upon the climate, the type and size of your house, the amount of insulation already in your house, and your fuel use patterns and family size. If you buy too much insulation, it will cost you more than what you'll save on fuel. To get the marked R-value, it is essential that this insulation be installed properly.
