Icynene Spray Foam Technical Data
SPRAYSEAL FOAM INSULATION Products
Depending on your unique climate and applications, there is a spray foam product that’s right for your home. Whether using our Classic LDC-50 soft, open-cell foam, or our stiff and rigid closed-cell foam, we will help you achieve the level of air sealing, and thermal comfort you hope to attain.
Each of our spray foam products has different advantages, and we have installed both with great success for over 18 years.
OPEN CELL FOAM LDC-50
Utilizing a very small level of porosity (
Consistently outperforming traditional insulation types like fiberglass, this spongy foam provides brilliant thermal insulating effects, and air sealing qualities. Open-cell foam products, with their incredible expansion, fill and seal the gaps and openings that normal insulations are unable to block. It also remain flexible and user friendly (cutting easily with a knife); Provides sound attenuation (A much quieter home). Think of it as a giant caulking gun for your entire home envelope. This product uses water, in the form of steam to expand the foam. It is considered the cleanest, most dust free form of insulation known.
The Icynene LCD-50 does not emit any gases or VOC’s and will effectively seal out virtually every single penetration of the envelope –to inhibit the egress of Dust, pollen, humidity and all manner of insects and vermin. In short —it gives you control over your indoor environment!
Closed-Cell Foam MDC-200
These foams developed from an industrial background, and have become quite refined and specialized in the residential and commercial foam niche. Built tough, this tough and rigid spray foam performs very well in flood-prone, or rough use areas, since it can reject bulk water, and take a hit without damage. Closed-cell foam can be used very effectively in exterior applications and also interior locations. It is very hard, and rigid. It can be used to add some rigidity to a roof or wall assembly that you may want to increase the racking strength. Closed Cell foam is quite permanent and does not remove or cut easily. This foam uses dissolved gas to expand the foam.
Both of these kinds of foam insulation products work very effectively at stopping the main cause of insulation failure: Airborne intrusion of Humidity; Heat; and outdoor particulates (dust).
