Icynene is an open-cell spray foam insulation that contains plastics made of petroleum. It consists of polymeric isocynate or better known as A component and of proprietary resin, known as B component. Icycene spray foam insulation traps the air that gets its form as the foam is expanding. Air that is placed inside of the foam gives the insulation value and the foam serves as a barrier to air moving.
Spray foam eliminates air leakage as it fills all the voids and cavities. Air leakage is estimated to be around 50% if there is no spray foam insulation. Due to leakage of the air, 30% of the energy loss happens through walls, roof and floors. When you lose energy from your home, you literally lose your money. Why wouldn’t you have an insulation that saves you money and at the same time is protecting your family from the outside noises, cold and moisture?
