Mississauga, Ontario -- Canadian spray foam manufacturer Icynene says that IAPMO's Uniform Evaluation Service has issued a UES Evaluation Report (ER-0255) for Icynene MD-C-200 in meeting code requirements.
The report confirms a tested R-value of 6.75 per inch of the medium-density, closed-cell spray foam at four inches (10.16 cm). This means three inches would achieve R20.
"Icynene prides itself on providing high quality insulation and air sealing products and persistently pursues third party testing on all of our products to ensure that they meet the high quality standards that both our customers and we expect," said Icynene engineering vice president, Paul Duffy, in a company statement.
The UES Evaluation Report allows specification and installation of the SPF product by architects, contractors, specifiers, designers as well as provides code officials with a concise summary of the product's attributes and code compliance.
IAPMO is the US-based International Association of Plumbing and Mechanical Officials.
