Owens Corning says the new EcoTouch insulation easily meets energy efficiency and green building certification requirements, due to its high-recycled content and natural, bio-based material. Created specifically for manufacturers of flexible air ducts, EcoTouch’s durable design allows it to be shaped around small diameter cores without buckling. According to the company, this product is easy to handle; meets Underwriters Laboratories’ test requirements; formaldehyde-free; made with 99 percent of nonacrylic, natural materials; and provides high thermal and acoustical performance.
