Icynene quality, Kishorn Insulations expertise

Icynene spray foam insulation by Huntsman Building Solutions UK is extremely high quality water blown foam insulation that has been used in thousands of residential and commercial projects since 1986. It is not harmful for people or the planet containing no HFCs or CFCs, with no harmful gasses released into the air during installation. With a Global Warming Index of just 1, Icynene has unrivalled green credentials.

We are proud to have met the strictest criteria to become a licensed installer of Icynene spray foam, which experience has shown us is the best, safest, most environmentally-friendly insulation product of its type on the market. Though not the cheapest form of insulation in terms up front cost we highly recommend Icynene because client testimonials have proven time and again that their heating bills have been drastically reduced - by over 50% in some cases - meaning the cost of installation pays for itself again and again for the lifetime of the building.

Consistently outperforming traditional insulation types, Icynene is unique in providing an air barrier between the outside and interior of your home resulting in a much more energy efficient, safer, more comfortable building with extremely low whole life carbon emissions.

Technical benefits of Icynene insulation

The Icynene insulation system is a soft, flexible spray foam product that expands to completely fill cavities and voids to create an airtight seal, eliminating air leakage/infiltration which accounts for up to 50% of heat loss from buildings. Proven to deliver up to 50% greater energy savings compared to other insulation products, Icynene helps create more energy-efficient homes and commercial buildings.

Icynene: a safe insulation choice

Unlike some other available spray foam insulation, Icynene’s unique polyicynene formulation is 100% water blown and therefore contains no harmful agents, volatile organic chemicals, HCFCs, HFAs, HFCs or formaldehyde meaning it creates a healthy environment for building occupants.

The only foam to have achieved leading building certifications -European Technical Approval Board (ETA), National Standard Authority of Ireland/Irish Agrement Board (NSAI/IAB) and The British Board of Agrement (BBA) - Icynene has been successfully tested and certified for applications directly to the underside of breathable and non breathable roof membranes and felts.

Icynene absorbs the lowest amount of moisture and has the highest level of vapour resistivity of any soft foam on the market with its air barrier protecting building occupants against the introduction of pollutants, dust, mould, carbon monoxide, and pollen.

Open or closed cell foam insulation?

Icynene produces very high quality open and closed cell spray foam insulation, which are both exceptionally effective. Icynene’s most popular open cell spray foam is H2Foam Lite (LD-C-50), which has been a market leader for 30 years. Very light, flexible insulation, it strongly adheres to the surface it is applied to expanding up to 100 times its liquid volume completely eliminating air infiltration to the application area. Being open cell, H2Foam Lite allows any moisture present to dry out through evaporation, which is important as timber and masonry surfaces need to breath moisture vapour to ensure that no damp or rot problems arise. H2 Foam Lite maintains its performance, not shrinking, sagging or settling, with no loss of thermal resistance over time.

Closed cell foam is typically used in industrial steel framed/sheeted buildings where moisture breathability is not required. Applied in thinner layers that will withstand a light wash down, this product achieves a very low u-value.

For narrow cavities and hard to treat areas LDC-50p is Icynene’s pour fill variation which injects the latest building technology into an older building to maximise energy efficiency while still preserving its original architectural details. LDC-50p fills wall cavities completely, starting at the bottom and slowly expanding upwards to 60 times its initial volume. Designed to expand in the direction of least resistance, it will not expand outward and damage walls.

Benefits of spray foam insulation

Ideal for homes and commercial buildings, Icynene open cell and closed cell spray foam insulation is the most accredited insulation available with worldwide acknowledgement of its exceptional performance. Insulating and air sealing in one step, it is guaranteed to perform as specified for the lifetime of your building, offering savings of up to 50% on your annual heating bills.

Icynene benenfits

Air leakage is the biggest cause of heat loss, and when that warm air meets a cold surface it can condensate which over time can lead to damp issues. By insulating with an airtight product you can ensure that the warm air remains in your home without the concern of moisture related problems developing.

Setting solid, Icynene also acts as a deterrent to nesting rodents and termites.

Efficient and airtight Icynene insulation products bring health benefits for occupants too, providing an air barrier to protect against the introduction of pollutants, dust, mould, carbon monoxide, and pollen. With a lowest in class Global Warming Index of 1, Icynene spray foam insulation boasts unrivalled green credentials, too, making it a good choice for people and the planet.

Icynene boasts exceptional acoustic insulation against interior and exterior noise pollution creating a calm, cocoon-like effect in your home.
