New American Home Shows Icynene in Action
Delivering ideal R-value and air-sealing in one step, Icynene® (Booth W3089) is the insulation of choice for the top show homes at the International Builders' Show in Orlando on Feb. 7-10.
Icynene was used to insulate both The New American Home® 2007 and The Renewed American Home® 2007, eliminating uncomfortable, energy-robbing air leaks and delivering durability.
When sprayed into walls, ceilings, attics and floors, Icynene expands to 100 times its original volume in seconds, creating a complete air barrier. By minimizing air infiltration, Icynene improves thermal comfort, moisture management and indoor air quality — while saving home owners up to 50% in energy costs each month.
Applied to the underside of the roof deck, Icynene creates an unvented conditioned attic assembly for added protection against severe storms.
Icynene is 100% water-blown and does not emit harmful gases in its cured form; other insulation can continue to off-gas over time, compromising air quality and diminishing the insulation’s rated R-value. Icynene is guaranteed to last for the life of the building, eliminating the need to re-install additional material in the future, thereby reducing its environmental impact.
At Booth W3089, convention-goers can see how Icynene is used in a variety of building applications, including walls, ceilings, attics and even a quiet retreat.
