Unfaced <25 <50 All Types Foil Faced <75 <150 III, IV, V. Kraft Faced N/R N/R III, IV, V. EcoTouch Insulation complies with ICC (International Building Code), model code requirements for building construction types listed above. Kraft and standard foil facing will burn. Do not leave exposed. Facing must be installed in substantial contact with an approved ceiling, floor or wall material. Keep open flame and other heat sources away from facing. Do not place Insulation within 3" of light fixtures or similar electrical devices unless device is labeled for contact with Insulation . Use only unfaced Insulation between wood framing and masonry chimneys. Do not use Insulation in spaces around metal chimneys, fireplaces, or flues.
2 EcoTouch Unfaced Insulation is considered non-combustible by model building codes. Flame Spread 25 products are flame spread rated and can be left exposed where codes allow. See package for warnings, fire hazard and installation instructions, or call 1-800-GET-PINK.. Due to the potential for skin irritation, EcoTouch Unfaced Insulation should not be used for exposed applications where it will be subject to human contact. Features and Benefits place. Trimming and fabrication Excellent Thermal Control can be done with an ordinary With the range of R-values and utility knife and is easily installed into odd-shaped cavities and small thicknesses available, EcoTouch . Insulation can meet most thermal spaces. With less dust than other specifications with ease. The R30C fiberglass Insulation products, and R38C provide excellent EcoTouch Insulation has excellent thermal performance in the limited stiffness and recovery space of cathedral ceilings.
