Product Data Sheet EcoTouch PINK FIBERGLAS Insulation with PureFiber Technology Design Considerations Kraft and standard foil facings on this insulation will burn and must not be left exposed. Install facings in substantial contact with the finish material. Protect from open flame or other heat source. Buildings utilizing curtainwall construction may be required to be equipped with a sprinkler system to provide adequate fire protection. Check local building codes for specific requirements. Commercial roof/ceiling thermal applications require that the building envelope block the movement of air from the outdoor environment to the conditioned space. Neither the insulation nor its facing should be relied upon to provide an air barrier. Failure to provide an adequate air barrier could lead to loss of thermal control, discomfort of the building occupants and frozen pipes. When insulation is added to the inside perimeter of a structure, the area outside the insulation becomes exposed to greater temperature extremes. Building structures should be inspected to ensure they can withstand the additional expansion and contraction forces. Check for piping which should be protected against freezing. The need for and placement of a vapor retarder in commercial construction depends on many factors. The architect or specifier should evaluate the requirements of each project. If a vapor retarder is specified, maintaining the facing integrity may be important for Product Data Kraft Foil Available Vapor Retarder Facings, Perms Maximum 1 0.5 Water Absorption, Maximum by Volume Less than 0.05% Dimensional Stability, Linear Shrinkage Less than 0.1% 1. Products are tested in accordance: R-Value ASTM C518 Surface Burning Characteristics ASTM E84 Perm Rating ASTM E96 R-values differ. Find out why in the seller's fact sheet on R-values. Higher R-values mean greater insulating power.

EcoTouch Kraft-faced Insulation complies with ASTM C665, Type II, Class C. EcoTouch Foil-faced Insulation complies with ASTM C665, Type III, Class B and C. 1. Higher R-values mean greater insulating power. Find out why in the seller's fact sheet on R-values. Read This Before You Buy What you should know about R-Values The chart shows the R-value of this insulation. R means resistance to heat flow. The higher the R-value, the greater the insulating power. Compare insulation R-values before you buy. There are other factors to consider. The amount of insulation you need depends mainly on the climate, the type and size of your home, and your fuel use patterns and family size. If you buy too much insulation, it will cost you more than you'll save on fuel. To get the marked R-value, it is essential that this insulation be installed properly.
