The CertainTeed Unfaced Sustainable Insulation batt product line is an insulation material made of fiberglass that consists of rapidly renewable content, a high percentage of recycled glass and a new plant-based binder that the company says has no formaldehyde, harsh acrylics, dyes or unnecessary fire retardants added. Batt sizes from R-10 to R-40 are included in this EPD.
Sustainable batt insulation acts as both thermal and acoustical insulation and is ideal for floors, walls and ceilings in residential, commercial and institutional settings.
