blown cellulose insulation Tops Fiberglass in Standards

Cellulose Insulation is covered by the American Society for Testing and Materials Standard Specifications (ASTM). The ASTM covers several material properties, including:

  • R-Value
  • Flame spread
  • Smoldering combustion
  • Density
  • Corrosiveness
  • Odor emission
  • Moisture vapor absorption
  • Fungi resistance
  • Adhesive/cohesive strength (spray on only)

blown cellulose insulation Features

cellulose fire resistance
Fire safety

Besides saving you money, cellulose insulation also provides extremely effective fire protection capabilities. Tests conducted by Underwriters Laboratories Inc.® show that Cellulose insulation provides an effective 1 hour fire rating. This will slow the spread of a fire allowing you more time to escape any danger. This is because cellulose is specially treated using Borate Compound Chemicals as a fire retardant in the manufacturing process to meet or exceed all fire safety requirements.

Mold Resistance

Cellulose significantly decreases the risk of mold even beginning to form. Not to mention cellulose has the lowest burn rate out of a insulation materials making it incredibly safe for you and your family.

Pest Control

Cellulose insulation is treated with boric acid, which is an efficient pest hindrance. When insects/pests absorb or come into contact with boric acid, it kills the creatures and they can not contaminate your insulation.

blown cellulose insulation Perks

Air / Vapor Barrier

Air infiltration is almost as important as R-value in the thermal performance of a building. Infiltration of unconditioned ambient air means that heating and cooling systems must expend more energy to compensate for the infiltration.

Sound Control

Cellulose provides very effective sound control to minimize outside noises and between rooms (if the interior walls are insulated). Many people only focus on the energy savings that can be achieved with cellulose insulation but overlook the benefits that come from improved sound insulation. If you have ever walked into a house that is not insulated you will immediately notice that noises from outside of the house are “louder” than in an insulated home.
