The second form of insulation made from cellulose is made from paper sludge (pulp unused paper) chemically untreated. It is then presented in bulk and can be installed in the traditional manner, by blowing, spraying or flocking.
- Thermal conductivity: 0,04 0,05 to W / m ° C.
- Thermal resistance for a layer cm 10: 0,1 / 0,045 2,22 = m² ° C / W..
We use ourselves this insulation is actually very economical, see: laying and cellulose wadding installation in lost attic.
