HD Series Blanket Insulation (HDB)

HD series Blanket Insulation

 

HD series Blanket Insulation is a highly efficient, 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 fibers and shot due to its mineral composition.

Facing

AHD series blanket Insulation is available in rolls unfaced or one side laminated with factory-applied kraft paper, or aluminium Foil Reinforced Kraft paper (FRK) or other specific vapor barriers. The semi-rigid blankets with densities from 24 - 56 kg/m, 1.5 - 3.5 lb/ft3 are flexible insulation rolls for application over irregularly shaped surfaces where rigidity properties are desired.

Application

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

Installation Recommendation

AFICO HD series Blanket insulation 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.
