Houston, Texas – The new Icynene X-Wall system from Icynene-Lapolla is an all-in-one continuous insulation solution for the exterior of buildings.
The company claims it provides long-term energy efficiency and savings, while protecting the structure from the elements.
The system includes Icynene ProSeal HFO spray-applied insulation and liquid flashing. It serves as thermal insulation, a tightly sealed air barrier. In addition, it also acts as a class II vapour retarder, and a water-resistant barrier. It can be used in all climate zones, and it is suitable for commercial, industrial and institutional buildings.
The foam is a low-VOC building material, using a blowing agent that has zero ozone depletion potential. It is UL Greenguard Gold certified, and has a GWP of 1. The liquid flashing is an elastomeric polyether.
In addition, the company said that the system meets the International Energy Conservation Code.
‘Icynene X-Wall is designed to provide a solution to architects, specifiers and builders seeking an insulation solution that meets the new continuous insulation requirements at a reasonable installed cost,’ said Doug Kramer, president and CEO of Icynene-Lapolla.
‘This is an ideal alternative to rigid XPS foam insulation board. It’s cost efficient and the closed-cell spray foam is able to seal all cracks, seams and studs better than any other exterior insulation solution available.’
