Recycled Blue Jean Insulation (by Bonded Logic)

My presentations about environmentally preferable construction practices include a lot of hands on examples of the latest in green construction materials. One sample that always draws a crowd is my old tattered sample of recycled blue jean insulation. I think people are drawn to it because it feels soft and comfortable and it is easy to tell where it comes from.

The insulation is called “UltraTouch” and Bonded Logic Inc. is the manufacturer, here is a bit from their website:

UltraTouch Natural Cotton Fiber insulation is the successful combination of
25 years of insulation experience and a revolutionary patented manufacturing process that has created a superior and safe product.

UltraTouch is made from high quality natural fibers. These fibers contain inherent qualities that provide for extremely effective sound absorption and maximum thermal performance. UltraTouch DOES NOT ITCH and is very
easy to handle and work with.

UltraTouch contains no chemical irritants and requires no warning labels compared to other traditional products. There are no VOC concerns when using UltraTouch, as it is safe for you and the environment.

UltraTouch is also a Class-A Building Product and meets the highest ASTM testing standards for fire and smoke ratings, fungi resistance and corrosiveness.

UltraTouch contains 85% post-industrial recycled natural fibers making it an ideal choice for anyone looking to use a high quality sustainable building material.

By installing UltraTouch, you are making both your building and the environment a safer place to live, work, and enjoy.
