CHANDLER, Ariz., April 20 /PRNewswire/ -- One of the building industry's most environmentally friendly products just got a whole lot greener. UltraTouch Natural Cotton Fiber Insulation, commonly referred to as "recycled blue jean insulation," is now sourced entirely of post-consumer blue jeans, instead of the post-industrial denim scraps it was previously made from.
The sustainability of UltraTouch continues with the manufacturing process, which uses minimal amounts of energy in comparison to traditional insulating products. Additionally, all scrap and manufacturing trim are reintroduced into the raw material supply creating a virtually zero waste process. It's not surprising that UltraTouch can contribute to earning up to 12 LEED(TM) credits.
