Mississauga, Ontario -- Spray foam manufacturer Icynene Corp. says it has major innovation in open-cell spray foam insulation -- its Icynene Classic Max (LD-C-50v2), which has been approved by ICC-ES for use without an ignition barrier in residential projects.
The Canadian foam systems supplier says this new material also provides superior spray performance (up to 50 percent greater yield than competitive sucrose-based formulas), superior adhesion (to substrates and to itself), drip-free application, and advanced air pocket control.
"ICC-ES's approval of Icynene Classic Max is the result of our substantial investment in research and testing. Icynene dealers deserve the industry-leading performance they have come to expect of our light-density products, without having to deal with the cost and complexity of ignition barriers or the inferior spray performance of sucrose-based foams," said ceo Howard Deck, in a company announcement.
ICC-ES approval (ESR 1826) confirms that Icynene Classic Max can be sprayed throughout the entire residential structure without an ignition barrier, including unvented attics.
"As the spray foam industry leader, Icynene has a duty to be diligent in the products it offers. Icynene completed comprehensive testing of Icynene Classic Max on actual end use conditions with small- and large-scale testing as well as computer modelling under a wide variety of scenarios. The result helps advance the science and understanding of how spray foams perform in real life situations," said VP Engineering, Paul Duffy.
