Icynene unveils latest spray foam innovation – Icynene Classic Plus –to help building professionals meet Canadian building codes
Canadian spray foam insulation manufacturer, Icynene, has unveiled its latest product innovation – Icynene Classic Plus™ – designed to help meet the stringent Canadian building code requirements. The 11.2kg/m3 (0.7lb/ft3) open-cell spray foam insulation product offers one of the best thermal resistance values in the market, at 0.72 (m2•K)/W at 25.4 mm or an R-Value of R4 per inch*.
“As a higher density open-cell spray foam product with a high R-value*, Icynene Classic Plus™ provides the opportunity to build code compliant assemblies confidently and efficiently,” said Howard Deck, Icynene President and CEO.
Complementing its excellent thermal resistance, Icynene Classic Plus’ superior formulation offers excellent adhesion on a broad range of substrates, temperatures and humidity conditions making it ideal for use in Canada. Moreover, the spray foam insulation’s formulation offers easier spray control to achieve a yield of up to 16,500 board feet as well as the opportunity to reduce waste and additional labour during application.
“Icynene continues to lead the evolution of the insulation segment by meeting the demands of the building industry and the challenges it faces as new requirements and regulations are implemented,” said Mr. Deck.

* 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.
