How to effectively insulate exterior walls in commercial buildings in cold weather
When it comes to cold temperature applications, spray foam insulation allows commercial projects to continue without schedule delays – ideal for exterior continuous insulation applications.
All of Icynene’s medium density spray foam products – including Icynene ProSeal and Icynene ProSeal Eco - can be applied in cold conditions and to cold substrate materials in accordance with their installation guidelines. Icynene ProSeal Eco is particularly useful for cold weather work since it can be successfully applied to substrates as cold as 5ºF (-15ºC). This capability makes it an industry leader for winter time use as exterior continuous insulation.
Icynene ProSeal and Icynene MD-C-200 spray foams have cold temperature capabilities similar to or better than other medium density spray foams with substrates allowed to be a minimum of 22ºF for an application.
Icynene contractors are trained to take steps to optimize the installation of our foam products. For instance, sometimes an Icynene insulation contractor would use certain unique application techniques noted in installation instructions to compensate for cold weather including “following the sun” and using a thin first pass.
Icynene’s latest white paper “The Performance Benefits of using Medium Density Spray Foam in Continuous Insulation Applications” identifies how to effectively insulate exterior walls as well as highlights why medium density spray foam is the superior choice in exterior continuous insulation applications.
