Q:Will this be suitable for a sauna application where the temperature will reach 200 degrees f? I am concerned about formaldehyde offgassing at that temperature.
by|Sep 28, 2023
1 Answer
Answer This Question

A:  Hello TJDIY, Owens Corning does not make recommendation on insulating a sauna. we suggest checking with the manufacturer of the sauna to see if they have any insulation recommendations. In regards to the formaldehyde content, during the manufacturing process, these products are cured at a very high temperature and virtually all of the binder formaldehyde is eliminated. The amount of formaldehyde in the finished product is less than 0.01% by weight. At this low level, and because we oven cure the product during manufacture, out-gassing of formaldehyde is extremely low and is not a significant source of formaldehyde when installed in a home or building. Thank you for your inquiry!

    Answer This Question

    A:  Hello FargoGirl, The R-23 can be used in a wall and ceiling application, it is 5.5" thick designed for use in 2x6 framing. You would want to check with your local building codes for the required R-value and the need and placement of a vapor retarder. Thank you for your inquiry!

      Q:Can this be glued to the underside of the plywood flooring (if so, what type of glue do you recommend).

      Answer This Question

      A:  Hello DIYButDoItRight, Thermafiber Fire and Sound Guard Plus can be used within the floor joist of a crawlspace. We would not recommend adhering the product in place. Strapping or insulation hangers can be used to assist with support the insulation. We also suggest checking with your local building codes for vapor retarder requirements. Thank you for your inquiry!

          It stays in place. No need for stapleing it to the lid. This product also gives me plenty of time and the option if I even want to drywall the lid because it stays between the beams so well.

          I used the Owens Corning insulation in a recording studio isolation booth. It was easy to work with and did an excellent job of making the room sound tight. The project was a success thanks to Owens Corning insulation

          Great product for insulation around wet locations and high heat areas like walls around fireplaces. There was some confusion with when was available for pickup and after I did it was not marked as picked up(received). Because of that I continued to get emails from HD to come pick up my order.

          I am so confused about the dimensions and coverage
          Dimensions and sq foot coverage are really confusing and this product is not available in stores to pickup. Also cannot order in small quantities and have to be ordered in bulk. I was trying to make a comparison of which one to buy, but the width factor is also confusing. Number of batts within each package is also different. Why not display per sqft ? I know with thickness the price changes but that's ok, at least we narrowed it down to one factor.

          Hi LeasingCompany, thank you for your review. The Fire and Sound Guard Plus R-23 will have 5 pieces per bag. The 16 bags indicated would cover 600 sq ft. You will need to contact Home Depot regarding available order quantities.

            It is easy to install. It cuts well but dulls knives quickly. You need to treat it like fiberglass because it will cause itching for those sensitive.

            Great product
            I'm using it in 2 x 6 ceiling joists 16" O.C. in an attic of an older home. It neatly fills the cavity; doesn't compress. For me, it fulfills my need.
