Ultra-cohesive open-cell spray foam innovations unveiled by Icynene
Icynene has introduced two new spray foam light density innovations for the US market - Icynene Classic Ultra and Icynene Classic Ultra Select. Both new innovations can be used in residential and commercial construction projects.
In a first for Icynene, both new open-cell products go beyond the expectations of spray foam contractors by eliminating the requirement of paddle mixing by hand prior to application with the introduction of an expanding blade mixer – the Icynene-Lapolla Draw Mixer. Both new products offer significantly better cohesion than existing Icynene open-cell spray foam insulation products – namely Icynene Classic Max and Icynene Classic Max Select.
Formulation enhancements see cohesion properties improve as much as 90 percent for Icynene Classic Ultra and a 30 percent improvement for Icynene Classic Ultra Select, when compared to Icynene Classic Max and Icynene Classic Max Select open-cell spray foam insulation. Icynene Classic Ultra is a low VOC innovation and holds a GREENGUARD Gold certification. Both new open-cell products feature:
- No paddle mixing by hand of resin prior to spraying. The new Icynene-Lapolla Draw Mixer does all of the work.
- Ability to start spraying with drum temperatures as low as 60°F for Icynene Classic Ultra and as low as 70°F for Icynene Classic Ultra Select
- R3.7 per inch R-Value
The elimination of manually hand mixing Icynene spray foam resin is a first for the spray foam insulation manufacturer. Spray foam applicators can use the Icynene-Lapolla Draw Mixer, a 13.3 pound expanding blade mixer, which is exclusive to Icynene through equipment partner, Graco. Use of the Icynene-Lapolla Draw Mixer ensures consistent foam properties throughout the spray application. Additional information about Icynene's product portfolio can be found here.
