New 4 hour re-occupancy allowances for Icynene low VOC spray foam product applications
Icynene has introduced new 4 hour re-occupancy allowances for homeowners and trades in the United States for two of its high-performance spray foam innovations – light-density open cell Icynene Classic Max and medium-density closed cell Icynene ProSeal.
The 4 hour re-occupancy allowance follows many months of detailed research, testing and assessment of the refined Icynene Classic Max and Icynene ProSeal spray foam products based on protocols and procedures developed by the American Chemistry Council – Center for the Polyurethanes Industry (ACC-CPI).
Through full scale testing and research reviewed by third party research chemists and toxicologists, on Icynene's low VOC formulations, re-occupancy times for homeowners can be significantly reduced--from 24 hours to four (4) hours. Refinements to Icynene Classic Max and Icynene ProSeal spray foam, combined with the use of higher workplace ventilation rates of 40 Air Changes per Hour (ACH), have helped reduce exposure risks to spray foam installers, non-spray foam trades and most especially for the homeowner.
The reduced re-occupancy allowances mean that homeowners no longer need to be displaced for days when having spray foam insulation installed into their homes. They are able to re-occupy their home and enjoy the advantages of spray foam insulation almost immediately.
The new re-entry and re-occupancy allowances are applicable only for installations of Icynene Classic Max and Icynene ProSeal in the United States.
