LDC-50p For Narrow Cavities and Hard to Treat Constructions
Icynene® is the leading 100% water-blown foam insulation that minimizes air leakage for increased energy efficiency, creates a healthier indoor environment, reduces airborne sounds and offers greater design freedom. Icynene® maintains its performance with no loss of thermal resistance over time. It does not shrink, sag or settle. Icynene® adheres to most construction materials and is the perfect insulation for walls, attics, ceilings and floors.
Icynene®'s pour fill variation is an insulation and air barrier that injects the latest building technology into an older building to maximize energy efficiency while still preserving its original architectural details. Icynene® fills the wall cavity completely, starting at the bottom and slowly expanding upwards to 60 times its initial volume. Since Icynene expands in the direction of least resistance, it will not expand outward and damage the wall. The pour fill formula has a thermal conductivity of 0.034 – 0.039 W/mK.
Icynene has been successfully tested and certified by the BBA for applications directly to the underside of all types of roof underlay and membranes with a single layer of tiling/slating battens due to its low water absorption and high vapour resistance. Icynene also has a breathability of 0.0049L/sec/m2 which allows all materials in contact including timber to breathe naturally. This makes it ideal to inject to the narrow cavity of traditional masonry wall build ups where it is essential to maintain the vapour permeability of the construction.
