Selecting a high-perfomance medium-density spray foam insulation solution can ensure your home is better protected against potential damage from bulk water ingress. Medium-density spray foam insulation, like Icynene ProSeal, can be used as a water-resistant barrier to deflect bulk moisture away. As a closed cell spray foam, Icynene ProSeal is certified as a Low-Emitting Material (LEM) as per CHPS EQ 2.2 Section 01350.

Icynene ProSeal

The U.S. Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA) identifies closed-cell spray foam insulation as a flood-resistant material ideal for use in coastal homes due to its resilience and strength.

Icynene’s advanced closed-cell, medium-density spray foam insulation Icynene ProSealsets a new benchmark in sprayability and performance. Icynene ProSealoffers a higher R-value and improved yield to meet today’s strict building code requirements making it ideal for residential applications. No other closed cell product matches the optimal performance of Icynene ProSeal.
