Icynene insulation is worth it’s salt - says Halen Mon


Award winning sea salt producer Halen Mon (Anglesey Sea Salt) has seen production efficiency increase by 25% since insulating its manufacturing plant with spray-applied insulation from Icynene.

Anglesey Sea Salt is made using sea-water


drawn from the fast flowing Menai Straights in North Wales


Anglesey Sea Salt has won an enviable reputation for culinary excellence for its range of speciality salts which are made using sea-water drawn from the fast flowing Menai straights that separate Anglesey from the North Wales mainland.


During the warm summer months, the process of evaporating seawater to create a 15-20% brine concentrate is straightforward, however in colder winter months, production can drop significantly. Production Manager Ronan Burns explains: “Maintaining a high core temperature in our evaporation plant is crucial. In winter, external temperatures drop and this reduces the amount of seawater we can convert into salt-rich brine.”


The evaporation process takes place in a 300sqm steel framed building, clad in corrugated metal sheeting. Previous attempts to insulate the building had failed due to the aggressive, moisture laden atmosphere. “Everything we tried failed miserably - even rigid board insulation soaked up so much moisture that it dropped off under its own weight” explained Mr Burns.


In desperation, the company turned to specialist insulation contractor Heatlok who recommended Icynene, spray applied insulation as a solution.


Icynene is a high performance, spray foam insulation which expands rapidly on application, sealing all gaps, service holes and hard to reach spaces, virtually eliminating cold bridging and air leakage.


Heatlok’s Greg Raby takes up the story: “Adhesion failure caused by moisture absorption can be a big problem for most forms of insulation but we selected Icynene’s LDC50 formulation for the Halen Mon project and it worked perfectly”
