CertainTeed Introduces InsulPure™ Fiberglass Building Insulation
Company Expands Building & Commercial Insulation Product Portfolios With Creation of New Binder Formulation
MALVERN, PA, September 2021 — CertainTeed, a leading North American brand of building materials, broadens its collection of high-performance insulation products with the introduction of InsulPure™ Fiberglass Building Insulation. With a newer, more efficient fiberglass binder formula, InsulPure offers better performance and increased quality with the same dependable ease of installation that CertainTeed aims for in all its building products.
Lightweight and easy to cut and handle, InsulPure is virtually effortless to place. It recovers quickly and returns to full shape after shipment, and it offers improved rigidity to help the insulation stay in place between wall studs. InsulPure also creates less dust during installation, promoting improved air quality for installers and quicker cleanup with reduced worksite waste and debris.
“We are focused on creating products that deliver a better overall experience for contractors,” says Bryon Magill, Vice President of Product Management at CertainTeed. “InsulPure is an evolution of our commercial insulation portfolio and is specifically engineered to exceed our customers’ expectations for performance and ease of installation.”
Geared for Environmental Excellence
Durable yet soft to the touch, InsulPure features a lighter, brighter tone. The pure white insulation is free from additives and coloring. Geared for environmental excellence, it meets or exceeds all required green building performance standards.
InsulPure is made from recycled content and is GREENGUARD Gold Certified and NGBS Green Certified. In addition, it is formaldehyde-free and third-party validated by UL.
“Building on our commitment to green stewardship, InsulPure continues our dedication to offering insulation that provides exceptional energy efficiency, as well as superior thermal and acoustical performance,” says James White, Product Manager, Residential Building at CertainTeed.
InsulPure Fiberglass Building Insulation also is fire- and high-temperature resistant. It is available in batts and rolls, 3 ½”-15” thick and 15”-24” wide. Either kraft faced or unfaced, as well as FSK (foil faced or foil scrim kraft) and PSK (poly faced or poly scrim kraft) may be selected, in various R-values—from R-11 to R-38.
To balance the InsulPure residential and commercial building insulation product line offerings, CertainTeed also offers InsulPure™ Duct Wrap. InsulPure Duct Wrap reduces unwanted heat loss or gain from HVAC equipment and ductwork, increasing thermal efficiency. When properly installed, it also virtually eliminates condensation on cold duct surfaces.
InsulPure will be progressively introduced to the building materials market in a regional launch, starting along the east coast.
