Research has shown that exterior cladding materials on an exterior wall can prevent most, but not all, moisture from entering into a wall. Having a backup control system behind the cladding to control moisture by shedding it to the exterior is important for the long term durability of an exterior wall. A significant component of the backup moisture control system is often called by building envelope designers a drainage plane or a water resistive barrier (WRB). See how Spray Foam Insulation can act as a WRB and help control moisure in wall applications.
Updates to building codes plus consumer demand for energy-efficient homes presents an opportunity to position your homes above the rest. Get the most bang for your buck. In this webinar, learn what areas are worth it to focus on when you go above and beyond the energy codes.
Spray Foam Insulation is a cost-effective, superior choice for exterior commercial wall solution for modern building design. This 3-in-1 product acts as insulation, air barrier, and vapor retarder with lower installed costs, reduced labor and less waste. The modern approach to continuous insulation smoothly and completely cover all areas of the wall assembly. Plus, our Icynene ProSeal Eco spray foam product can be used 12 months a year in all climates.
An Introduction to ETFE Architecture (Architectural Design)Discover why Icynene closed cell spray foam insulation offers superior performance to rigid XPS foam sheathing board... and at a lower installed cost!
The purpose of this white paper is to highlight several important performance and application facts that demonstrate why medium density spray foam is the superior choice in exterior continuous insulation applications. Findings within this white paper are based on field experience obtained on construction sites, and from testing and evaluations conducted for ICC-ES reports and Air Barrier Association of America (ABAA) programs according to appropriate industry and building code performance criteria.
Icynene ProSeal Eco is the world's first fully water-blown spray foam insulation. With no synthetic blowing agent, Icynene ProSeal Eco has significantly expanded the possibilities of commercial wall assembly applications. Watch this video now.
Howard Deck, President of ICYNENE, discusses the benefits of using high performance ICYNENE spray foam insulation in buildings and homes. Watch the video now.
In the design process few decisions have as many long-term implications for the performance and durability of a building as the choice of insulation. For the designer, builder and owner, insulation can and should play a multifaceted role that extends far beyond those noticeable or expected benefits, such as energy savings, comfort and enhanced indoor air quality. Insulation, in combination with good detailing and quality control, can play a preventive role by minimizing the chances that things could go wrong.
A unique opportunity is at hand for commercial architects to shape a healthier and more energy efficient future of commercial building design and construction. Commercial buildings account for 18% of the nationâ€™s energy use and nearly 18% of our greenhouse gas emissions. Improving their performance is a key priority for building owners and operators. Low-density spray foam insulation like ICYNENE can play a major role in this effort, offering compelling reasons to go beyond the code to create buildings that exceed expectations for comfort, performance and functionality.
Of all the different insulation options available today in commercial construction, spray foam can provide outstanding thermal performance while also contributing to air sealing, moisture control, and even structural integrity. This learning unit will provide an overview of spray foam insulation, how it differs from conventional insulation types, its most appropriate applications, and how the material is allowed to be used in fire-resistant construction.
