Spray Foam Science: Safety

If you’re trying to decide between traditional insulation and upgrading your home to spray foam insulation like Icynene, you may be curious to understand the safety and science behind this modern insulation product.  

When you choose Icynene spray foam insulation,  you are making a safe and conscious choice. Icynene spray foam insulation products have been on the market for more than 30 years, and have been installed in more than 350,000 buildings during that time. It has been comprehensively  studied and rigorously tested for both performance and health and safety.

Volatile Organic Compounds (VOCs) associated with the Icynene spraying and curing process have been tested by third party toxicologists and have been deemed completely safe within 24 hours of application and with some products in as few as 4 hours. In addition to this, Icynene does not use all catalysts and flame retardants that are listed as undesirable on California’s Proposition 65 list.

Finally, Icynene has a rigorous training and licensing protocol in place for all of its contractors. Icynene spray foam insulation is not available via third party sellers nor is it available for the do-it-yourself market. That means you can rest assured that your contractor not only knows the products they are  using, but knows how to install the product in all types of applications.
