Front Cover Story


Icynene expands 100-fold within seconds of application, sealing all gaps, service holes and hard to reach spaces.


Icynene was sprayed directly onto the blockwork and over the concealed sections of cladding framework.


OPEN OR CLOSED CELL COMPOSITION


Spray foam insulation can be either open or closed cell in composition. Open cell is extremely vapour open and will allow moisture vapour to pass freely through it allowing the building to breathe naturally.


For the Dumfries Baptist Church project, Icynene MDC-200 HFO, a closed cell foam that uses Hydro-Flouro Olovine (HFO) as a blowing agent, was used. HFO is an environmentally friendly material which has a Global Warming Potential (GWP) of only 2 and an Ozone depletion rating of 0 (Zero).


Closed cell foams tend to be much less vapour permeable than open cell and are considerably more rigid and hard. They resist the passage of liquid water and are ideal for use in conjunction with the rain-screen cladding system specified. Closed cell foams also have a greater thermal resistance than open cell foams.


COST EFFICIENT SOLUTION


Icynene MDC-200 foam insulation was applied to the entire outer leaf of the games hall, an area of approximately 550sqm and to a thickness of 150mm. The work was completed over a four-day period.


According to Icynene, spray applied insulation is broadly comparable in cost to conventional fibre based and rigid board type insulation materials however, its speed of installation, minimal waste and its ability to perform in difficult to treat applications means spray foam can be an extremely cost-effective solution for a variety of projects up to and including those built to Passivhaus standards.


Construction of the Baptist Church buildings began in early 2017 and is scheduled for completion by Easter, 2018.


ICYNENE


McLean Architects designed an 18.00 x 18.00m sq 8.00m high sports hall structure comprising an internal leaf of concrete blockwork with an insulated external steel frame with fibre-cement rain-screen cladding.


The complex latticework of steel frame for the cladding made it extremely difficult to install conventional rigid board insulation.


Icynene provides a 25-year warranty for all its insulation products and as well as carrying EST Approval, Icynene Foamlite is also BBA Certified.
