Icynene ProSeal closed-cell spray foam insulation awarded UL Greenguard Gold certification
High performance, closed-cell spray foam insulation Icynene ProSeal from leading spray foam manufacturer Icynene has met stringent chemical emission criteria to be awarded UL Greenguard Gold certification by UL Environment.
The certification allows Icynene ProSeal to contribute valuable points in established green building programs, satisfy strict local building code or ordinance criteria as well as meet indoor air quality requirements.
UL Greenguard-certified building materials are recognized, referenced and preferred by more than 400 federal purchasers, retailers, green building rating tools and building codes from around the world.
“According to Shelton Group’s 2014 EcoPulse Survey, a record-breaking 70% of Americans are searching for greener products. The recognition by UL Environment of Icynene ProSeal allows architects, designers and specifiers to confidently create healthier, comfortable and energy efficient home, office, healthcare and educational facility environments,” said Icynene VP Engineering, Paul Duffy.
“It’s estimated that Canadians spend around 90% of their time indoors where air pollution levels can be anywhere between two and five times higher than those found outdoors. The stricter certification criteria considers safety factors to account for sensitive individuals such as children and the elderly and ensures that a product is acceptable for use in indoor environments including schools and healthcare facilities,” said Mr. Duffy.
Icynene ProSeal also features a core density of 38.2 kg/m³ (2.4 lb/ft³) and offers a high LTTR of 2.02 m2 K/W (Type 2).
