Icynene® UK: Why We Need Icynene® Spray Foam Insulation in the UK

We need spray foam insulation in the UK because of our weather patterns and carbon emission objectives. We’re a cold country with a normal temperature range from 5.9°C to 18.6°C and an average of 6 to 10 days of rain a month, plenty of wind and general damp. Our buildings are built with brick and insulated with materials that are no longer suitable due to its inefficiency, environmental properties or potential toxicity.


In February 2017, a report to parliament stated that 25 million existing homes will not meet the insulation required by mid-century due to the energy efficiency and carbon emissions standards set in place. We need to cut our emissions by 80% by 2050, and a third of them come from heating draughty buildings.

This demonstrates how important spray foam insulation is to the UK. It is a recommended form of insulation in the UK due to its efficiency and environmentally friendly properties. It combines thermal protection with excellent air barrier properties, and comes in many forms to suit the application.
