About Borate Cellulose Insulation

Borate cellulose insulation is an insulation product that has borates added to the cellulose to act as a fire retardant, and it is usually found in open attic applications.

What Is Borate Cellulose Insulation?

Borate cellulose insulation, or all borate cellulose insulation, is a premium fire retardant product with only borates added. Unlike blended cellulose insulation, which blends aluminum sulfate and borate, all borate cellulose insulation contains only borates. It is most commonly found as loose fill in open attic applications in residential construction.

Borate Cellulose Insulation Benefits

Borate cellulose insulation is a great insulation product with desired capabilities like preventing air infiltration, a high fire rating, and sealing small spaces and cracks.

Prevents Air Infiltration

Since borate cellulose insulation has the ability to provide insulation to small areas and cracks within a home or building, it is an excellent source of air infiltration, which helps keep unwanted elements like moisture and heat from damaging construction. In addition, it helps improve the overall energy efficiency of the home or building, which reduces monthly and long-term costs.

Very Good Fire Rating

Borates are well-known for their fire retardant capabilities, and since borate cellulose insulation is made with only borates, instead of being a blend of borates and aluminum sulfate, it provides excellent fire protection features.

Able to Seal Small Cracks and Tight Spaces

Borate cellulose insulation is a loose, blown-in insulation product that has the ability to seal cracks and effectively fill tight spaces within a home or building. This makes the installation process that much simpler, along with reducing air infiltration in any application or construction type.
