Blanket Insulation (BKT)

Blanket Insulation

 

Blanket Insulation is a highly efficient, light weight, strong, resilient and easy to handle flexible blanket insulation composed of fine, stable and uniformly textured inorganic glass fibers bonded together by a non-water soluble and fire retardant thermosetting and heat resistant resin. It is free from coarse fiber and shot due to its mineral composition.

Facing

  • Blanket Insulation is available unfaced, or laminated with factory-applied Kraft Paper, Vinyl or Aluminium Foil Glass Reinforced Kraft (FRK) or other specific vapor barriers to prevent condensation.
  • Density
  • 10 kg/m3 (0.625 pcf)

Application

AFICO Blanket Insulation is intended for use in commercial, institutional, industrial, agricultural and residential construction as thermal and acoustical insulation for the interior, exterior and cavity walls applications, partitions, prefabricated houses, poultry farms, ceilings and as back loading of existing ceiling systems.

Installation Recommendation

AFICO Blanket Installation can be installed quickly and easily in virtually any type of construction.

Between metal studs or Z channels, the insulation can be friction-fit in place while the interior finish is applied. In areas where it will be applied in heights over 2.5 m, supplementary support should be provided to hold the insulation in place while the interior finish is applied.

When applied to masonry walls, the insulation can be fixed by impaling on pins or other similar attachments and then affixing a locking washer to hold the insulation in place. For ceiling installations, the insulation is simply laid out on top of ceiling panels or other suspension systems.
