Mississauga, Ontario – Icynene-Lapolla has launched two new high-performance, light-density spray foam insulation products. The company claims both offer better cohesion than its existing SPF products.
Icynene Classic Ultra and Classic Ultra Select, both open-cell products, eliminate the requirement for paddle-mixing by hand before application. This is achieved by the introduction of the Icynene Draw Mixer expanding blade mixer.
The company claims formulation enhancements have allowed cohesion properties to be improved by up to 90% for Classic Ultra compared to the earlier product, Classic Max. The Select grade offers a 30% improvement over Classic Max Select.
Low-VOC Classic Ultra holds a Greenguard Gold certification, and spraying can start at low drum temperatures of 15.5°C; the temperature for Classic Ultra Select is 21°C. Both offer an R-value of 3.7.
The expanding blade mixer, exclusive to Icynene, is provided by its equipment partner, Graco. It allows consistent foam properties to be achieved throughout the spray application.
‘[This] demonstrates our commitment to delivering customer-valued innovation in the insulation category,’ said Mark Sarvary, Icynene-Lapolla’s president. ‘Sprayers no longer need to paddle mix the resin material or wait for the liquid to warm up, so they can quickly start spraying these two high-yielding products.’
