Basic Use: CertainTeed Fiber Glass Metal Building Insulation 202-96 is a flexible blanket insulation furnished in rolls and intended to be laminated on one side with a suitable vapor retarder. It is used as a thermal and acoustical insulation in the roofs and sidewalls of pre-engineered metal buildings and post frame construction.
Benefits: Metal Building Insulation 202-96 reduces transmission of exterior sound to the interior of the building and absorbs reverberating sounds within the building.
Composition and Materials: The product is composed of tan, uniformly textured, inorganic fibrous glass and formed with a formaldehyde-free binding agent.
Limitations: This product is designed for use in interior (weather protected) walls and roofs of pre-engineered metal buildings. It should be laminated on a first-in, first-out basis and should be kept dry at all times during processing and end use. After lamination, packaging should not exceed a 5.5:1 compression ratio. For additional information, please refer to the appendix of the NAIMA 202-96 (Rev. 2000) standard.
Sizes: Standard available sizes as noted in table below. Contact CertainTeed for non-standard sizes.
The vapor retarder on Metal Building Insulation 202-96 should be installed toward the conditioned spaces in the building. The insulation is normally applied over or between the structural members of the building and held in place by the covering sheets or insulation support system. When using high R-Value systems, it is recommended that the cavity between the exterior metal sheet and the faced fiber glass insulation should be completely filled.
