In July 2008, CaraGreen toured Bonded Logic’s UltraTouch natural cotton fiber insulation manufacturing facility in Chandler, Arizona. The building is LEED platinum, which is a rare achievement for manufacturing facilities and reiterates the company’s commitment to green building. The facility is exceptionally clean and efficient. Zero waste is generated during the production of UltraTouch. Trimmers at each stage of production remove excess cotton and then send it back into the appropriate earlier stage of production.
UltraTouch, which is made from 85% recycled cotton, a rapidly renewable resource, contributes to two LEED prerequisites and eight LEED credits. It’s class A fire rated, mold, mildew, and pest resistant, and contains no VOCs or harmful irritants. UltraTouch is available in R-13, R-19, and R-30 batts in either 16″ or 24″ widths.
UltraTouch is in stock at CaraGreen and at several dealers throughout the region. Email [email protected] for more information.
