Reading the ICC-ES Evaluation Report

Evaluation reports from ICC Evaluation Service (ICC-ES) are the most preferred resources used by code officials to verify that new and innovative building products comply with code requirements.  The evaluation reports provide information about what code requirements or acceptance criteria were used to evaluate the product, how the product should be installed to meet the requirements, how to identify the product, and much more. ICC-ES provides guidance on reading an Evaluation Report, which you can obtain by clicking on the image above, from which the preceding text is copied.

Foam insulations are becoming increasingly popular - and regulated. Links to Evaluation Reports for a few spray foam and related products (such as thermal barriers and ignition barriers) are provided below.
