Therecellulose fiber is a thermo-acoustic insulation obtained mainly from recycled newspaper and it is, in turn, a reusable and recyclable product.
Therecellulose fiberit is hygroscopic, breathable and it is also a good soundproofing and sound absorbing agent as well as acting as a thermal insulator. Therecellulose fibercan be used inflakes, grains and panels. From an ecological point of view (including energy balance), it is one of theinsulatorsmore interesting.
How is cellulose fiber used?
The uses of thecellulose fiberthere are many, the cellulose is compressed by insufflation into special cavities of walls, floors and roofs or can be freely laid on floors. Thanks to the laying techniques, a homogeneous distribution of the layer ofinsulatingwithout the use of joints.
Therecellulose fiberit has excellent insulating capabilities (both thermal and acoustic), it is mainly used for thermal insulation: it insulates from the cold and absorbs heat, never causing temperatures to reach too high, thus preventing the formation of condensation, humidity andmold on the walls.
Cellulose fiber in flakes
Therecellulose fiber in flakes88% of it is obtained from newspapers and from natural additives such as boron salts. Betweenadvantagesof its applications we see that unlike the others granular insulators, thecelluloseit does not compact and does not reduce the volume over time. In addition, the added additives (boron salts) are natural and non-toxic and are able to impart tocellulose fiberparticular properties as a fungicide and natural repellent against insects and mice. Furthermore thecellulose fiber in flakesit can be applied with high pressure tools in order to maximize efficiency.
Therecellulose fibercan be used forinsulate wallsby means of the wall cavity technique, forinsulate the attic(attic) whether they are inhabited or not inhabited. For the insulation of the floors, thecellulose fiberit is laid dry in order to eliminate thermal bridges.
Therecellulose fibercan also be used forinsulate the roofwith an installation that can take place between the rafters or above the rafters. Forinsulate roofsparticular it is possible to use specific uprights for laying the layerinsulating.
When there are no cavities and industry experts cannot find other application methods, it is possible to create an insulating space with the use of plasterboard.
Isolate with flaked cellulose fiber
A more sophisticated installation procedure involves the exclusive use ofcellulose flakes; therecellulose fiber in flakesit is the only cellulose-based insulator that can be applied using the compact spray process. In this context, thecellulose fiber in flakesit is fixed with special high-pressure machinery that can offer excellent resultsthermal and acoustic insulationlaying a considerable thickness ofcellulose fiber in flakes.
Cellulose fiber and tax deductions
The interventions withcellulose fiberfall into the category of renovation works aimed at improving theenergy efficiency of the building. These interventions are entitled to tax deductions that can cover up to 65% of the requested expenditure. All information can be found on the page dedicated toTax deductions for renovations.
