Product information

Product name

ProPINK® Wall Insulation System

Product description

The product is assembled at the job site and is intended for use in wood-frame constructions. It uses Owens Corning PROPINK® Complete™ Fabric, which is stapled to the wood-frame members to contain the dry-blown mineral fibre insulation material. The insulation is injected into the wall or sloped ceiling cavity with a blowing machine (see figures 1 and 2).

The thermal insulation used is Owens Corning PROPINK® Loose Fill FibreGlass Insulation, Type 5 (see CCMC 12851-L).
