Division 7 Ebook Page 111 EcoTouch® PINK® FIBERGLAS’ Insulation with PureFiber® Technology Product Data Sheet

PRODUCT DATA SHEET EcoTouch PINK Fiberglas Insulation Description Owens Corning EcoTouch PINK Fiberglas Insulation with PureFiber Technology is a preformed, flexible blanket insulation. It is produced in R-values from 11 to 49, with thicknesses ranging from 3 inches to 14 inches. It is available unfaced, or faced with either a kraft or foil vapor retarder. Features Excellent thermal control Effective acoustical control Long term performance and will not settle nor slump within wall cavities With less dust than other fiberglass products, EcoTouch PINK Fiberglas insulation has excellent stiffness and recovery characteristics 1 Compression packaging from Owens Corning speeds job site handling and installation 1. According to 2010 clinical trial conducted in Toronto, Canada by Ducker Worldwide on behalf of Owens Corning Insulation Systems, LLC. Applications Wood-framed wall, floor and roof/ceiling cavity wall assemblies Metal-framed wall and floor cavity wall assemblies Furring strips installed on the interior surface of basement walls Interior surfaces of basement and unvented crawl space foundation walls Standards, Codes Compliance Manufactured in compliance with ASTM C 665 Federal Specification HH-I-521F has been canceled and is replaced by ASTM C 665 Classified non-combustible when tested in accordance with ASTM E 136 Unfaced EcoTouch PINK Fiberglas insulation is acceptable for use in ICC building construction types I through V; kraft and foil faced EcoTouch PINK Fiberglas insulation are acceptable for use in ICC building construction types III, IV and V Certified to meet California Code of Regulations, Title 24, Chapter 12-13, Article 3, "Standards for Insulating Material" Design Considerations For optimum insulation performance the building thermal barrier (insulation) should be in continual alignment with the building air barrier. In framed cavities, the product thickness should match the depth of the framing members. Follow the local, applicable building code(s) to determine the need for and placement of a vapor retarder. Do not install insulation on top, or within 3 inches of a recessed light fixture unless the fixture is labeled as "insulation contact" (IC) rated. Kraft and standard foil facings will burn and cannot be left exposed. Install facings in substantial contact with the assembly finish material. Protect from open flame or other heat source. Installation See Owens Corning publication "Installation Guide for Light Density Insulation" (Pub. No. 10017858) for more information.

The surface burning characteristics of EcoTouch Insulation were derived from products tested in accordance with ASTM E84. This standard is used solely to measure and describe properties of products in response to heat and flame under controlled laboratory conditions, and should not be used to describe or approve the fire hazard of materials under actual fire conditions. However, the results of these tests may be used as elements of a fire risk assess- ment that takes into account all of the factors pertinent to an assessment of the fire hazard of a particular end use. Values are reported to the nearest five rating.
