Product Spotlight: What Lies Beneath? Insulation Contamination

Unwanted deposits can gradually build up on, and even hide inside insulation. Once embedded, they are almost impossible to remove. Regular cleaning is useless, and vacuuming is not only ineffective, but advances the breakdown, or de-lamination of fiberglass insulation.

Unwanted deposits can gradually build up on, and even hide inside insulation. Once embedded, they are almost impossible to remove. Regular cleaning is useless, and vacuuming is not only ineffective, but advances the breakdown, or de-lamination of fiberglass insulation. This gradual process allows fiberglass particles to enter the air stream and occupied areas, where they may be inhaled.

At CRT, we have developed the following specifically formulated coatings to solve problems due to contamination, degradation and de-lamination. By using these products, air handler units, ductwork and mechanical room walls can remain safe, improving occupant comfort level, and assisting in future maintenance and cleaning of the HVAC system.

Flex Seal
Flex Seal is a NFPA 90A compliant, mildew-resistant coating that permanently protects surfaces from degradation. Flex Seal can be applied to HVAC ductwork, interior walls, insulation, wood, concrete-masonry and metal surfaces. Downtime is limited, due to low odor emissions and a fast drying time, and future cleanings are made easier because Flex Seal is scrubbable, and can quickly be wiped down.

Bioflex
Bioflex is an EPA registered, fungicidal coating that permanently protects surfaces from mold-related contamination. Bioflex can be applied to interior walls, insulation, wood, concrete-masonry and metal surfaces. Downtime is limited, due to low odor emissions and a fast drying time, and future cleanings are made easier because Bioflex is scrubbable, and can quickly be wiped down.

Ductile
Ductile is a low viscosity coating that permanently protects HVAC ductwork from degradation and insulation de-lamination. Ductile is specifically formulated for use in robotic air duct sprayers, making it easy to apply. Ductile is a complete encapsulate, locking down fiberglass particles that can enter the airstream, and making future cleaning easier as it can quickly be wiped down.

We welcome your comments, so please don’t hesitate to do so. We’d love to hear from you.
