Anyone have any experience with a low GWP closed-cell spray foam?

boulder_89 | Posted in Green Products and Materials on

Wondering if anyone has had a low GWP [global warming potential] foam installed in their construction product, and what product they used? I have done a little research on Icynene’s ProSealEco closed cell foam. Any one have anything good or bad to say about the stuff?

    Good question. I'd like to hear from GBA readers on the issue.

    ProSealEco is a medium-density foam with an R-value of R-4.9 per inch. That puts the product's R-value somewhere between most open-cell spray foams (about R-3.7 per inch) and most closed-cell spray foams (about R-6 per inch).
