Recycled Denim Insulation
Denim insulation is friendly to both people and the environment and is gaining in popularity.
Denim insulation is treated with a fire retardant, it’s 100% recyclable, VOC-free, and formaldehyde-free. It’s manufactured from blue jean remnants and recycled cotton material.
To create denim insulation, manufacturers shred denim and cotton fabric down into its component fibers. The fibers are the treated with borates, a natural fire retardant, to make them flame, mildew and insect resistant.
No harmful chemicals
Although fiberglass insulation is available in formaldehyde-free products, many fiberglass insulation products still contain some formaldehyde. Denim insulation contains no formaldehyde and contains no volatile organic compounds (VOCs) which are known to release harmful vapors into the atmosphere.
Did you hear that?
For home theater and specialty installations, denim insulation provides superior sound insulation.The three dimensional structure of denim material allows it to trap acoustical vibrations.
Denim insulation costs about 3 times as much traditional fiberglass insulation. Environmentally conscious consumers may consider this a small price to pay to reduce landfill waste and keep harmful chemicals out of their home.
