What Is PC Insul ?
PC INSUL is the short description for Pest Control Cellulose Insulation. It is imported from United States of America and has been in use since 1960's.
PC Insul is made from natural wood base fibers. 80% of the content of PC Insul is processed from recycled cellulose fiber. These fiber are chemically treated with boron acid (boric acid / sodium poly borate) to create permanent flame resistance. The additive are non-toxic, will not irritate normal skin, will not attract vermin or insects, and will not adversely affect other building materials.
PC Insul combines high thermal performance with the added advantage of pest control. It is registered with EPA. (Environmental Protection Agency) No# 44757-4-65049
It has been proven 99.7% effective in killing cockroaches and is also effective in controlling ants, termites and other insects. Properly installed, PC Insul will retain its insecticide activity for the life of the structure, and insects can not develop an immunity to it.
PC Insul meets safety standards of the following organisations
a. U.S. Consumer Products Safety Commission (CPSC)
b. American Society of Testing Materials (ASTM)
c.Cellulose Insulation Manufacturers Association (CIMA)
It also complies with all requirements of the Environmental Protection Agency's (EPA) Insecticide, Fungicide and Rodenticide Act (FIFRA).
How does it work ?
In order to create a good indoor climate and to save energy certain measures should be taken, which will reduce the heat flow into a building.
Heat flows from a warmer to a cooler space and if without insulation the heat gained in the hot period is too great to maintain comfortable conditions. By placing a layer of insulation material on the ceiling it is possible to reduce drastically the amount of heat transmitted to the rooms.
PC Insul resists the flow of heat in three ways :
1. Air is trapped within PC Insul
2. By the wall of fiber
3. Between fibers creating significant resistance to air movement.
Installation of PC Insul
The PC Insul is funneled into the ceiling using an imported rotary airlock pump and agitator or so called fiber moving machine.
PC Insul is then level off to the required average thickness of 100mm. Every nook and cranny and all hard reach corners of the ceiling is covered with PC Insul , providing an effective insulation blanket without GAPS which is seamless that virtually eliminates air infiltration.
