Open-cell spray foam insulation meets 2012 building code

As the 2012 ICC International Building Code becomes adopted by more states, builders are looking for better spray foam insulation to meet the strict new requirements.

Spray foam insulation manufacturer Icynene has unveiled its latest product Icynene Classic Plus, designed to help meet the stringent requirements of the 2012 ICC International Building Code.

The 0.7lb/ft3 open-cell spray foam insulation product offers one of the highest R-values available on the market, at R4 per inch, allowing building professionals achieve R-22 in a typical 2x6 wall assembly.

“The building industry across the country has been struggling to meet the strict requirements of the 2012 ICC International Building Code as the number of states adopting the new code grows. As a higher density open-cell spray foam product with a high R-value, Icynene Classic Plus provides the opportunity to build code compliant assemblies confidently and efficiently,” said Howard Deck, Icynene president and CEO.

Complementing its high R-value, Icynene Classic Plus’ formulation offers excellent adhesion on a broad range of substrates, temperatures and humidity conditions making it ideal for use in areas that have adopted the latest building codes such as the north-east and north-west US, the company said in an announcement.

Also, the spray foam insulation’s formulation offers easier spray control to achieve a yield of up to 16,500 board feet as well as the opportunity to reduce waste and additional labor during application.

“Icynene continues to lead the evolution of the insulation segment by meeting the demands of the building industry and the challenges it faces as new requirements and regulations are implemented,” Deck said.
