ELAMINATOR Insulation System The Owens Corning ELAMINATOR Insulation System is used to insulate metal building roof assemblies both standing seam and screw-down type with Owens Corning EcoTouch Insulation for Certified R Metal Building or EcoTouch Insulation for MBI Plus. The system utilizes two series of machines designed to travel along the purlins dispensing faced insulation or facing from rolls. The machines control the tension applied to the rolls as they are dispensed and correctly position the facing with respect to the purlins so that installed insulation is consistent and fully expanded. The System uses the Certified ELAMINATOR Operator Program (CEOP) to provide qualified machine operators for installation. The system offers excellent interior appearance with a faced surface, uniform in appearance, without noticeable exposed seams. No unsightly suspension clips, wires, or bands are required. The system places the insulation over and/or between the purlins. With facing tabs overlapped across purlins, ELAMINATOR contributes to good condensation control. Single layer and two layer installation options are available with less compression at the purlins, for enhanced thermal performance. OptiLiner Banded Liner System The OptiLiner Banded Liner System is designed to maximize the thermal performance of Owens Corning EcoTouch Insulation for MBI Plus in metal building roof and wall applications. The OptiLiner roof system uses a series of 1.0 inch galvanized steel straps to support a bright white or black polyethylene fabric with thermally welded seams that serves as the low permeance vapor retarder for the system. Fabric sections are custom fit for each bay in order to ensure a swift installation and a clean interior finished appearance. The installed banding and fabric support system allows roof cavities to be completely filled using two layers of MBI Plus. Completely filling the cavity results in minimal insulation compression and maximum system thermal performance. In addition, the OptiLiner roof and wall system provides excellent acoustic benefits with multiple STC, STL and NRC tested assemblies for metal buildings. EcoTouch Insulation for Metal Building Utility Blanket Owens Corning EcoTouch Insulation for Metal Building Utility Blanket is an unfaced light density fibrous glass blanket. The product is designed to be laminated with a variety of facings and is used for condensation and noise control in metal buildings. After the product is laminated with an appropriate facing, the insulation is typically installed in a single layer between the structural members (purlins for roofs and girts for walls) and the exterior panels. In most cases, the product is installed over and perpendicular to the structural members with the facing towards the interior of the structure. Metal Building Insulation
