Icynene ‘next generation’ closed cell spray foam insulation innovation, Icynene ProSeal™, sets new benchmark in performance
Spray foam industry leader, Icynene today unveiled its next generation closed-cell medium density spray foam insulation product – Icynene ProSeal™. Offering an impressive R-value* of R7 per inch, Icynene ProSeal™ will set a new benchmark in optimal thermal performance for commercial and residential construction across North America.
“Icynene entered the medium-density, closed cell spray foam market in 2010 with our premium MD-C-200® product. Since then our R&D team has worked to develop the next generation of closed-cell products that deliver in performance, applicability and range. Icynene ProSeal™ marks another step in the ongoing evolution of the insulation industry by Icynene and reinforces our position as the industry leader,” said Howard Deck, Icynene President and CEO.
Icynene ProSeal’s formulation allows for a higher initial pass of three inches achieving R21 as well as a Class II Vapor Retarder in one pass. Furthermore, the product is suitable for use all year round. The all-season formulation is suitable for cold weather applications as low as 23oF (-5oC), plus Icynene ProSeal™ offers the highest application yield in the industry.
Icynene ProSeal™ is approved for use in Type I-V construction, meets the same commercial approvals as its predecessor Icynene MD-C-200® and has passed ICC-ES AC377 for use in unvented attics and crawlspaces without an ignition barrier.

* 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.
