Kraft Faced Fiberglass Batts
Kraft-faced insulation is a lightweight thermal and acoustical fiber glass insulation made of long, resilient glass fibers bonded with an acrylic thermosetting binder. The kraft facing can serve as an integral vapor retarder.
- Wood frame construction – residential homes and light commercial buildings
- Metal frame construction – commercial buildings
- Pre-manufactured homes – modular or manufactured housing
- Engineered wood construction – assemblies framed with 12" to 19.2" on-center cavities, wide-spaced wood trusses or I-joists
- Interior wall sound control – interior walls and floor and ceiling assemblies (For sound class ratings for wall assemblies, see the appropriate STC values datasheet for either steel or wood framing.)
- Formaldehyde-free – will not off-gas formaldehyde in the indoor environment.
- Thermal Efficiency – provides effective resistance to heat transfer with R-values up to R-38 (RSI-6.7).
- Sound Control – reduces transmission of sound through interior and exterior walls and floor/ceiling assemblies.
- Moisture Control – the kraft facing resists water vapor transmission.
- Noncorrosive – does not accelerate corrosion of pipes, wiring or metal studs.
- Durable – unaffected by moisture, oil, grease and most acids. It will not rot, mildew or otherwise deteriorate.
- Resilient – bonded glass fibers will not pull apart during normal applications and resist settling, breakdown and sagging from vibration.
- Flexible – forms readily around corners and curved surfaces.
