Icynene has introduced ProSeal Eco, a 100 percent water-blown, medium-density closed-cell spray polyurethane foam insulation, for use in commercial and residential projects.

The manufacturer bills ProSeal Eco as a game-changer, describing the two-part insulation as a “smarter replacement for chemically-based medium density, closed-cell spray foam products.”

ProSeal Eco does not include ozone-depleting blowing agents, hydroflurocarbons (HFCs) or polybrominated diphenyl ethers (PBDEs), the manufacturer reports.

The product is recommended for use in high-occupancy designs, such as healthcare facilities, multi-residential buildings, educational facilities and other institutional structures.

“The ground-breaking new product is set to change how the construction industry uses closed-cell spray foam insulation thanks to the product’s superior environmentally responsible formulation and wide commercial application possibilities,” Icynene said in a product announcement.
