High-efficiency Icynene spray foam insulation installed into new Attawapiskat First Nations school
A new school in the Attawapiskat First Nations community in Northern Canada will benefit from the installation of a high-performance closed-cell Icynene spray foam insulation - MD-C-200.
Medium density, closed-cell spray foam insulation, Icynene MD-C-200®, will provide students and staff a comfortable and air-sealed space to teach and learn after the previous school was shut down in 2000 due to concerns surrounding soil contamination which left students learning in temporary classrooms.
Icynene MD-C-200® is a one-step insulation and air-barrier material that provides an LTTR of 1.94 m2 K/W. Rigid, the spray foam material contributes to wall racking strength for a sturdier building envelope and can reject bulk water making ideal for institutional, commercial and residential construction.
Licensed Icynene dealer Penta Protective Coatings shipped equipment and materials to the remote site on Hudson Bay to work 24 hours a day, seven days a week over two months to complete the project. This remote community is only accessible by seaplane in the summer and ice road in the winter adding to the significant logistical issues in this project.
