No other spray foam manufacturer matches our drive in developing functional, high-performance spray foam insulation products and we are thrilled that Icynene ProSeal has been recognized by Architectural Record. It is honor to have received this recognition from our peers within the industry,” said Icynene VP Marketing, Betsy Cosper.

* R means resistance to heat flow. The higher the R-value, the greater the insulating power. Compare insulation R-values before you buy. There are other factors to consider. The amount of insulation you need depends mainly on the climate you live in. Also, your fuel savings from insulation will depend upon the climate, the type and size of your house, the amount of insulation already in your house, and your fuel use patterns and family size. If you buy too much insulation, it will cost you more than what you'll save on fuel. To get the marked R-value, it is essential that this insulation be installed properly.
