problems with icynene spray foam insulation

Are you worried about the problems with Icynene spray foam insulation? We are here to reassure you that it is one of the safest, most effective forms of insulation available on the market. Read on to put your mind at ease and find out why Icynene is a worthwhile investment for your property in Leeds, Carlisle, or elsewhere.

So with the above in mind, let's look into the common concerns about Icynene one by one...

Is Icynene a fire safe product?

Icynene spray foam meets the necessary code requirements with regards to fire safety.  As a Class A material, it is in the lowest bracket of the fire spread index with a ranking of less than or equal to 25.

Due to its low density, Icynene does not contribute as a fuel source for fire as much as alternative insulation materials.

Will Icynene Spray Foam Insulation affect my electrical wiring?

Thorough testing by independent third party sources has confirmed that Icynene spray foam insulation does not cause problems for electrical wiring.

Some people may be wary of certain insulation materials in close proximity of electrical wiring due to dangers of overheating. However, official tests have found that overheating problems are not a concern for those who opt for Icynene.

How long will Icynene last?

The Icynene spray foam insulation we install at Home Logic comes with a 25-year manufacturer warranty so you can guarantee that it will perform brilliantly for many years to come.

It is worth mentioning that not all spray foam insulation products are Icynene, and that these imitation products may not offer the same longevity associated with a genuine Icynene product.

Does it cause health issues?

Icynene will seal your Manchester, Bristol, or Coventry property from pollutants which discourage illnesses such as hay fever and asthma.

Additionally, it does not absorb water so you are less likely to suffer from problems caused by damp and mould.

Does Icynene Attract Pests?

Pests are not a problem with Icynene spray foam. Traditional methods of insulation such as fibreglass and cellulose have been known to serve as a nest foundation and even a food source for some pests and rodents.

The solid form held by professionally installed Icynene does not allow for pests to build their nests within your property.

Key Problem: Product Misrepresentation

Icynene has become a by-word for spray foam insulation, but not all spray foam applications in the industry use the Icynene product. There are many brands on the market used which do not have the same benefits of Icynene spray foam insulation.

Common problems with these imitation products include lack of adhesion onto surfaces and problems with moisture management amongst many more.

Key Problem: Poor Application

If you select an installer or a different brand of spray foam, you run a high risk of running into severe problems. You could face the following problems in your property:

  • Fishy odours
  • Off ratio spraying
  • Lack of adhesion
  • None of the great Icynene benefits
  • Little insulation
