Should I be worried about “off-gassing” from Icynene spray foam insulation in my home, beyond the exclusion period?
No. Icynene spray foam insulation has been tested extensively for off-gassing by several reputable third-party laboratories, regulators, and research institutions - for example, Berkeley Analytical Labs, Home Innovation Research Labs (formerly NAHB Research Labs), the Collaborative for High Performance Schools in California, the University of Saskatchewan, the International Code Council - Evaluation Service, and the Canadian Construction Materials Centre.
Again, once Icynene spray foam is cured, the house or building is safe for re-occupancy (following specified re-occupancy and ventilation guidelines). So there is no reason to worry about “off-gassing” of Icynene spray foam insulation beyond the exclusion period.
