The Natural Choice
Ever-increasing demands for improved performance, sustainability and safety have driven the insulation industry to innovate beyond fiberglass and foam. Cotton Armor non-woven thermal / acoustic insulation answers the call offering OEMs and the construction industry a revolutionary insulation solution.
Cotton Armor Insulation is made from at least 85% recycled material, available in many thicknesses and densities (or made to your specifications) and can be faced and die-cut leaving a clean edge for a precision fit. Cotton Armor is extremely versatile, maintaining flexibility even at the highest densities, allowing it to squeeze into spaces where a rigid material would otherwise leave gaps and air space. This flexibility contributes to the already outstanding acoustic and thermal performance Cotton Armor provides when designed for wall structures, appliances, transportation applications and thermal packaging.
Cotton Armor is safe and easy to handle. It does not itch, and contains no formaldehyde, fiberglass or other materials associated with increased health concerns.
Safe & Easy to Install
Cotton Armor does not itch, contain fiberglass, formaldehyde or other materials associated with increased health concerns.
Cut Cotton Armor using a utility knife, or rip it with your hands. You can cut it across or tear from top to bottom at any point, giving you a truly custom fit to your measurements - easy!
How Green is Cotton Armor?
Cotton Armor is green in many different ways. Cotton Armor is made from recycled cotton and takes less energy to produce than fiberglass, which requires copious amounts of fossil fuels to melt and form the glass. Its incredible insulating effectiveness will lower the energy needed to heat and cool your home, adding some green to your wallet! Cotton Armor also contains at least 85% recycled content and reuses American resources to save energy and your energy dollars.
In a Life Cycle Analysis, Cotton Armor was found to be 54% more energy efficient in production than fiberglass. This is due to the use of recycled renewable resources, and application of modern, energy-efficient electrical equipment, rather than the blast furnaces utilized in fiberglass manufacturing. Cotton Armor production was also found to result in less than 53% CO2 equivalent (Kilograms of CO2 and other gasses) and 29% less water than fiberglass manufacturing.
