website | Company information

Icynene Classic Ultra and Icynene Classic Ultra Select eliminate the requirement of paddle mixing by hand prior to application with the introduction of an expanding blade mixer – the Icynene Draw Mixer. Both products offer significantly better cohesion than existing Icynene open-cell spray foam insulation products – namely Icynene Classic Max and Icynene Classic Max Select.

  Formulation enhancements see cohesion properties improve as much as 90 percent for Icynene Classic Ultra and a 30 percent improvement for Icynene Classic Ultra Select, when compared to Icynene Classic Max and Icynene Classic Max Select open-cell spray foam insulation. Icynene Classic Ultra is a low VOC innovation and holds a GREENGUARD Gold certification.  Both open-cell products feature:
• No paddle mixing by hand of resin prior to spraying. The Icynene Draw Mixer does all of the work.
• Ability to start spraying with drum temperatures as low as 60 F for Icynene Classic Ultra and as low as 70 F for Icynene Classic Ultra Select
• R3.7 per inch R-Value

The elimination of manually hand mixing Icynene spray foam resin is a first for the spray foam insulation manufacturer. Spray foam applicators can use the Icynene Draw Mixer, a 13.3 pound expanding blade mixer, which is exclusive to Icynene through equipment partner, Graco. Use of the Icynene Draw Mixer ensures consistent foam properties throughout the spray application.
