A: Yes, it could be placed inside of a cabinet.
A: Yes , they are not fiberglass, environment friendly, this insulation would be a great choice for that reason.
A: We bought this to go in a 1950 Chevrolet Truck for insulation. It works pretty good keeping the heat out of the cab from the firewall. But it is still hot!
A: Dear Exeneek: Ultratouch is not an effective product to insulate your HVAC ducts. The R-value is only R-1.4 because it is so thin. You should use standard HVAC insulation wrap, e.g. Masterflow Model # INSWRP60R8, Home Depot Internet #302000644 UPC Code # 050206100141 Store SKU #1002520421 Use foil HVAC tape to seal all of the joints and ends -- NOT silver fabric 'duck' tape. Home Depot sells Nashua foil HVAC tape. The Masterflow dust insulation is based on fiberglass, but the fiberglass is attached to the foil 'wrapper' and is long strand, so it did not create the skin irritation / itching when we install it, which is common with loose blown fiberglass. If you are sensitive to fiberglass wear a cheap tyvek painter's suit, gloves and a good dust mask, which Home Depot sells. I hope this is helpful, Mark
A: This insulation is made from recycled denim with a sturdy foil backing. We used it to insulate understand a stairwell that was over the basement after pulling very old carpet up, we could feel cold air seeping through. It worked well for that. My concern with using it for HVAC is that the denim is absorbent and the foil isn’t breathable, so you may develop mold or mildew if you get any condensation.
A: It will work but it is felt like material and will absorb water from condensation when you run the A/C. You would be better off using fiberglass. The best would be thin styrofoam panels with a reflective layer on the outside. A few screws and the metal foil tape and you are done.
A: It would be wise to contact Home Depot to accertain what the actual R Value rating is for this product. I use it for sound deadening and some insulation value. Depending on your location should be helpful in your decision of application. Looking for straight insulation, not so much for Alaska, Florida maybe. You may also consider styrofoam sheathing in different density and thickness cut to apply snuggly between trusses/rafters.
A: Dear Mona: UltraTouch would provide very little insulation -- just R-1.4 -- because it is thin. Insulation depends on thickness. The best option for the ceiling of your shed is standard insulation, e.g. rock wool or foam board. Depending on how your shed is constructed, rock wool batts would be the best option; rock wool delivers R-4.1 per inch of thickness and is fire resistant. Foam board is easier to install, particularly if your shed ceiling does not have standard rafters 16" on center, but is flammable and must be covered by 1/2" drywall. If you choose foam board, use Folamular XPS if you are located in an area with cold winters. If heat in the summer is the key concern, use polyisocyanurate foam board. Home Depot carries both. Also be sure to seal all of the joints and edges to block air leaks. HVAC mastic or DAP 230 sealant work well for joints and small gaps. Use the 'Window and Door' version of Great Stuff spray foam for larger gaps. Best of luck with your project and I hope this is helpful, Mark
A: Dear Paul: This product will provide almost no benefit -- just R-1.4, because it is so thin. If your heat radiator is steam or water based (NOT ELECTRIC) then polyisocyanurate foam board is the best option, available from Home Depot in 1/" to 2" thicknesses. Install the thickest possible piece on each side. You can use foam board-compatible glue to hold them in place. See: Locktite PL300 Model # 1421941, Home Depot Internet #202020476, UPC Code # 079340686502 Store SKU #780400 If your radiators are installed on an external wall, the most important space is the back side. In-wall recessed hydronic radiators were often installed with zero insulation. This means that the radiator is 'fighting' the cold outside all winter long, and you are paying the bill for the battle. You can probably cobble together a solid piece in the back, pushing one small piece after another under or over the radiator. I hope this is helpful. Mark
