Valley Forge, Pa. –  CertainTeed® CertaSprayTM open-cell polyurethane spray foam insulation has received an evaluation report from the ICC Evaluation Service, Inc. (ICC-ES), confirming the product meets building code standards.

Through an analysis of CertaSpray, including testing, calculations, and quality control methods, the ICC-ES evaluation report provides third-party verification to architects, contractors, specifiers and building officials that the product meets the 2006 International Building Code®, the 2006 International Residential Code®, and the 2006 International Energy Conservation Code®.  The comprehensive evaluation report, ESR-2668, will be available soon at iccsafe.org.

Consisting of a two-component foam insulation, CertaSpray is sprayed into a building cavity and expands to fill every opening that can potentially leak air. By reducing air leakage, CertaSpray minimizes hot and cold spots and provides outstanding comfort and indoor air quality by impeding the penetration of moisture and outdoor allergens. CertaSpray is appropriate for whole house applications, or in combination with fiberglass, and is backed by CertainTeed’s Building Science program, providing access to technical experts and best-practices for superior thermal performance.

CertainTeed offers a complete line of insulation products, including fiberglass insulation batts and rolls, polyurethane spray foam, innovative vapor retarder technology, as well as HVAC products.
