About This Product

Owens Corning PINK Next Gen Fiberglas insulation installs faster because it's made like no other fiberglass insulation. PINK Next Gen fiberglass insulation batts recover instantly, cut and split cleanly, glide in easily and stay put in the cavity, helping deliver inspection-ready results faster. They feel soft as cotton and are shed-resistant for more comfort and less cleanup on every job. And their advanced fiber technology creates a tightly woven network of soft, fine fibers to form a super-resilient blanket of insulating micro-pockets that deliver exceptional performance.

Q:Can I use this for insulating my roof which has 2x6's ?
by|Mar 9, 2024
1 Answer
Answer This Question

A:  Hello Needs2BeRight, the R-38 Pink Next Gen Insulation is 12.5" thick. Compressing this down to 5.5" would reduce the R-value to approximately a R-22. Also with that much compression there is a possibility of having issues with the drywall. Thank you for your inquiry!

      Q:Does it repel bugs etc.?

      Answer This Question

      A:  Hello Patricia, Owens Corning manufactures glass fiber insulation products by extruding molten glass into a fibrous form. These fibers are bonded together with a cured binder. Neither the glass fiber nor the binder can be considered a food source. Because of the porous nature of the product, insects and vermin can enter and maneuver through fiber glass insulation. There are no chemical additives in our products intended to repel insects or vermin, but because it is not a food source, insects typically do not nest in it and vermin are not attracted to it. Thank you for your inquiry!

        A:  Hello Alex, Owens Corning Pink Next Gen Insulation can be used to insulate a floor. You will want to check with your local building codes to determine required R-value and the need and placement of a vapor retarder. Thank you for your inquiry!

          Perfect replacement for wet insulation
          I have a building I'm working on that had a roof leak and caused the insulation to get saturated. I needed to replace the damaged pieces and have always used Owens Corning insulation. All I needed was 4 sections and I used a slap stapler to attach to the studs. If your project is big or small good quality high r value insulation is worth every penny. Go and grab what Owens Corning insulation you need for your project you won't be disappointed.

            Junk - You won't get R38 out of this
            The batts do not expand to the listed 12.5". If you try to fluff it up manually, the batts falls apart at a seam. The seem appears to be where the manufacturer attempted to glue two 6" batts together to make a 12"batt. This makes it almost impossible get the required R38 overhead cause you're not getting the full 12". If getting the R value is important, spend a little bit more money to get another brand. I had no problems with another, non-pink, brand.

              Excellent product at a fair price. Had some delayed shipping issues but the insulation is perfect. Very easy to work with and much gentler on the skin than the old stuff.

              I wasn't home when these were delivered but many of the bags of insulation were cut in many different areas instead of only having one side open. I've used three of the right bags for part of my insulation project. Great quality insulation just wish I could've bought these separately. Home Depot does allow to have left over bags returned so I'll be using the rest of the bags on the other side of my house. I'll remove all the old insulation and put these down. I don't have a truck to return them, just have to be very careful when doing the other side of my house!

                The house we purchased only had about 3 inches of insulation, and our summer electric bill was about $400/mo. Upon install, we noticed an immediate difference in the indoor temperature and how often the AC unit was turning on. Now, with colder weather kicking in, the house sits at 74 with the outdoor temp at 47, and the heater rarely turns on. Our bill this past month was $114 vs the $189 it was when we moved in. Given that we bought this as a Special Buy of the Day, we got it at 40% off and this will pay for itself in about a year. We broke down blown insulation bundles to fill the voids in the existing insulation (up to rafters), faced to cover the parts where there was no existing insulation and unfaced to top it all off. This insulation quality and packaging is excellent. The plastic wrapping is though enough to withstand the tugging/pulling of just getting it where it needs to be without tearing. Once the bundle is cut open, it expands to full dept quickly. If, like me, you're doing the install yourself, make sure to have a helper because each bundle is fairly heavy and bulky for one person to safely get up into the attic. I'd also recommend the ($10) Grip-Rite Stone Wool Insulation Knife because it cut through this insulation like butter and was priceless for this job.

                  Very easy to install since it comes in 4ft. sections. We Just put it up in our attic so time will tell how it saves on energy costs but we're guessing that we will not be disappointed.

                  Bought this to use in the flat part of the ceiling in an attic I was finishing. It worked as expected and I didn't have any issues with packaging or shipping. I find the pink stuff to be softer to the touch than some other brands, but it's slightly harder to cut than some since the kraft facing isn't very stiff, but it's not usually a problem.
