Icynene ProSeal Eco wins 2014 Product 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, continues to make a splash in the building industry, with the 2014 Product Innovation Award from industry publication Architectural Products in the Thermal/Moisture Protection category.
Icynene ProSeal Eco™ is 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.
“We are thrilled that Icynene’s product innovation continues to be singled out by industry peers. Icynene is driving the insulation category further through product development and innovation that addresses the changing landscape of building code requirements, architectural design and building performance,” said Icynene VP Marketing, Betsy Cosper.
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.
“Building on the success of last year’s program, our fourth edition of the awards proves commercial building manufacturers are committed to, and are working arduously toward, delivering more sustainable products, as well as products that deliver better performance, life and affordability,” said Jim Crockett, Editorial Director – Architectural Products Magazine.

* 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.
