SPRAY FOAM INSULATION

Icynene Spray Foam Insulation Products

Icynene products are soft, flexible and breathable, expanding to 100 times their original size upon application, filling every crevice, gap and void. The spray method by which it is applied means it is incredibly versatile and can quickly and effectively cover the most complex of structures with ease. It can be applied directly to a variety of materials, including timber and steel, as well as walls, underlay and roofing membranes due to its low water absorption, high vapour resistance and breathability. Effective in any climate, it isn’t affected by humidity and it does not degrade over time or move once applied, making it perfect for underfloor, wall, roof, loft and sound insulation solutions. It is also the only foam on the market to have achieved BBA, ETA and IAB certification.

Safe to install, Icynene does not contain any toxic ingredients, and can help protect against various allergens and pollutants, such as dirt, dust and pests, by acting as a protective barrier, thereby improving the quality of air. Due to its low water absorption, mould and condensation will also disappear.

Icynene also delivers high levels of sound insulation by virtually eliminating airborne sounds such as music, telephones, conversations and all mid to high range frequency noise, creating a haven of peace and quiet within your home.

Unlike traditional fibreglass insulation, or any of the inferior spray foams on the market, Icynene can provide superior insulation, a healthier environment and an air seal, resulting in a warmer, quieter, more energy efficient property that is perfect for modern day living.

Our highly qualified technicians can install Icynene spray foam insulation in almost any property, quickly and easily, in under a day. Call us for a free, no obligation quote.

Why choose Spray Foam Insulation?

Cost Saving

Cost saving

Due to the nature of Icynene products, the foam, once applied, creates an air seal within a property, helping to prevent heat loss. This will reduce the amount of heat needed to fill the building, in turn saving money year after year.

Lower Carbon Footprint

Lower carbon footprint

As Icynene helps to reduce heat loss from a property, much less energy is needed to help keep a comfortable temperature throughout, thereby reducing a property’s carbon footprint on the environment.

No Drafts

No drafts

Air leakage can be responsible for up to half of a property’s energy loss. The air seal created by applying Icynene to the internal structure of a building means no gaps exist from which a draft can appear; this helps maintain a more consistent internal temperature, minimises heat loss and reduces waste, creating an efficient and comfortable living or working space.

Healthier Environment

Healthier environment

Airborne pollutants, including dirt and dust, are often the trigger of allergies and can contribute to lower air quality. Icynene will help to shield a property from such aggravators, as the foam will expand to create an internal seal, improving the quality of the air in the property, helping to alleviate common causes of irritation.

Noise Reduction

Reduced noise

Icynene products deliver high levels of sound insulation from inside and outside a property by virtually eliminating airborne sounds such as music, telephones, conversations and all mid to high range frequency noise.

It is especially effective for those properties situated on a busy road to help eliminate traffic noise, and can make huge positive differences to living spaces prone to external noise.

Damp Protection

Protection from damp, mould and pests

Icynene open cell spray foam is engineered in such a way that it does not retain water; instead it allows water vapour to diffuse through the insulation and dissipate from the building’s envelope, keeping out moisture from the internal structure which is a big cause of damp and mould. It is also breathable, which helps to prevent condensation.

It also helps to deter pests such as mice, rats, termites, mites from entering a property, as once the product solidifies, these pests will find it difficult to gain entry or make nests.

Speed and Accuracy

Speed and accuracy of installation

Icynene Spray Foam Insulation offer a variety of products for different applications, depending on the project’s needs. Each has their own unique characteristics, but can all be installed quickly and effectively, more so than traditional insulation methods, meaning minimum downtime for any business.

25 Year Warranty

​25 year manufacturer’s warranty

Green Horizon Energy Solutions is one of only a handful of fully accredited, official contractors of Icynene in the UK, meaning all of our technicians are fully licensed installers. As such, we are able to offer as standard a 25 year warranty on the product for all installs.

Safe and Certified

Safe and certified

Icynene is non-toxic, and is certified by the BBA, ETA and IAB.

Spray Foam Insulation FAQs

What is Icynene Spray Foam Insulation?

Icynene spray foam insulation is an insulation and air barrier material that seals walls, floors and roofs against air movement, including spaces around electrical outlets and light fixtures and where walls meet windows and doors. Icynene spray foam insulation can provide an effective air barrier insulation to minimize air infiltration through walls and ceilings, preventing drafts, cold spots and energy loss. The performance of Icynene spray foam insulation means that humid indoor/outdoor air is restricted from entering the walls & ceilings and condensing, thereby minimizing the possibility of moisture entrapment & build-up within the wall & ceiling cavities. This is conducive to preventing building envelope failure due to moisture damage.

Icynene spray foam insulation products are installed by extensively trained and licensed Icynene® contractors only.

Icynene® can maintain its installed U-values throughout its service life, contrary to air permeable insulation types that lose their thermal performance over time due to the deterioration in the insulation quality (compromised &/or shrinking) and ongoing convective current loops within the insulation (up to 50% loss).

What are the advantages of Open-cell Spray Foam insulation?

Typically, buildings expand and contract due to temperature differentials, moisture content, wind load and seismic etc. Closed-cell insulation cannot accommodate the movement of the building. Open-cell spray foam:

  • Provides air sealing benefits in many applications at lower cost
  • Vapor permeability supports bi-directional drying of assemblies – critical in warm climate zones/seasons
  • Flexibility allows it to expand and contract with any movement of the building structure ensuring long term air sealing

What are the advantages of using Icynene Spray Foam?

For builders, Icynene spray foam insulation can reduce construction time.

For homeowners, Icynene spray foam insulation offers the opportunity of lower heating and cooling costs from reduced air infiltration and a more comfortable home, draft free without cold spots. Furthermore, Icynene’s continuous air barrier capability will significantly reduce unwanted airborne noise from the outside resulting in a quieter interior living space.

What is the composition of Icynene®?

Most Icynene spray foam products do not contain environmentally harmful blowing agents like HFCs, HCFCs or HFAs, in fact most Icynene spray foam insulation products are 100% water-blown making them better for the environment. Organic chemical compounds from petroleum extract are the main source of its ingredients.

Does the spray foam insulation absorb water?

No. However, water can work its way through the foam under pressure or by gravity force. When the foam is placed on water it will float and upon removal it will not contain any water and it does not lose any of its insulating properties. But, if it is immersed under water, water can be forced into the foam by the hydrostatic pressure; however, once it is removed from water and allowed to dry out, the original insulating properties will return.

Does the Spray Foam entrap moisture?

Icynene’s open-cell spray foam insulation products are vapor permeable to allow water vapor molecules to flow through the foam. This means any moisture in the building’s concrete or lumber can escape through the insulation as the building dries out, thus eliminating moisture that could cause rot or mold.

How much does Spray Foam Insulation Cost?

The cost of Icynene spray foam insulation varies on the type and size of job, typically prices are from £10 up to £30 per m2, you will always receive a free no obligation quote before making your final decision.

Does Icynene spray foam change physically over time?

Icynene spray foam products are chemically inert meaning they will not change chemically or physically over time.

How environmentally friendly is Icynene spray foam insulation?

Icynene spray foams are considered to be an environmentally preferred products due to their air sealing qualities which contribute to improved indoor air quality, reductions in energy consumption as well as greenhouse gas emissions. Icynene is listed on the industry-recognized energy saving trust website

What are the fire-ratings for Icynene products?

Complete details of all Icynene spray foam insulation products can be found in each product’s Technical Data Sheet.

How is Icynene Spray Foam Insulation installed?

Icynene foam insulation is installed by fully trained, licensed Icynene contractors who spray the solution into open building envelope such as studded walls, ceilings and floors. The solution can be safely sprayed directly onto electrical and plumbing.

In each case, a fully trained, licensed Icynene contractor must install the product. Icynene foam insulation products are not Do-It-Yourself (DIY) products.

How long has Icynene been in use?

Icynene spray foam insulation has been available since 1986. It has been used in excess of 350,000 buildings across North America. It is available in over 30 countries on four continents worldwide. It has been featured numerous times on television programs such as “This Old House” and “Your New House” and Chanel fours “grand designs” in the United Kingdom
