Applegate Reinvents Blanket Insulation with Revolutionary Cotton Armor

WEBBERVILLE, MI — Applegate's new Cotton Armor is revolutionizing the insulation industry by combining one of man's earliest insulations— cotton fiber synthesized with modern technology and experience. Cotton Armor provides real world sustainability, safety, R-value, sound deadening and ease of sizing and proper installation. Made from a minimum of 85% recycled content this custom engineered "non-itch" cotton blanket insulation contains an environmentally safe proprietary fire retardant and needs no personal protection during installation. With all these key benefits, plus the fact that it meets or exceeds industry and "green" standards with up to 11 LEED Credits, Applegate's revolutionary Cotton Armor sets itself apart from existing batt insulation technology.

Cotton Armor's innovative manufacturing process results in a unique fiber layout, which provides many unique and tangible benefits for installers and homeowners. Installers value its ability to be quickly custom sized by hand or cut with a utility knife, and the fibers provide better rebound and stiffness than most other batts. Cotton Armor blanket insulation maintains its shape and thickness after sizing and installation better than most batts. It is right sized for 16" o.c. and 24" o.c. residential and commercial framing, which combined with its rigidity and rebound significantly reduce compression, gaps and voids which can significantly decrease performance. A proper fitting insulation increases the real world thermal and sound attenuation performance. For example, an R-13 Cotton Armor insulated wall (with its proprietary fiber layout), has a Sound Transmission Class (STC) rating of 52, while compareable fiberglass insulated walls typically have STC's in the 40's.

Cotton Armor insulation is engineered specifically for home and commercial construction where energy savings, sound control and environmental safety are of utmost importance. Buildings insulated with Cotton Armor are quieter, safer places to live, work and enjoy while saving energy dollars. Cotton Armor is commonly preferred by professional installers and homeowners who are concerned with energy efficiency and the environment. The newest hybrid, combing cotton and modern technology, Cotton Armor results in a truly green insulation solution that is safe, fast and easy to install.
