Thermal properties and use of cellulosic insulation produced from recycled paper

PDF Version Also Available for Download.

Description

Information regarding the use of building insulation made from recycled paper is summarized. Results of previous experimental studies to determine thermal conductivities, settled density, and flammability are outlined, and calculation methods for thermal resistivity are presented in detail. Other performance factors affecting installed insulation are discussed. Industry data and information on the production, use, and economics of cellulosic insulation for residential and commercial buildings are provided. 34 refs., 4 figs., 1 tab.
