CertainTeed SoftTouch™ Duct Wrap Insulation offers outstanding thermal properties that reduce unwanted heat loss or gain and condensation during system operation. SoftTouch duct wrap is GREENGUARD® Certified as low emitting.

BASIC USE
CertainTeed SoftTouch duct wrap products are used to insulate rectangular and round heating, ventilating and air conditioning ductwork.

PRODUCT DESCRIPTION
  • SoftTouch Duct Wrap This blanket-type insulation is composed of glass fibers bonded together with a thermosetting resin. It’s available unfaced or with an FSK, gray PSK or white PSK vapor retarder facing. On faced products, a taping tab is provided on one edge for ease of installation.

FEATURES AND BENEFITS
  • Lower Energy Usage: Duct wrap products provide thermal efficiency that reduces unwanted heat loss or gain from equipment and ductwork. This means a likely savings of energy and improved system performance.
  • Condensation Control: When properly installed in the correct thickness, duct wrap virtually eliminates condensation problems on cold duct surfaces.
  • SoftTouch: Our duct wrap products are now made with SoftTouch for a softer, less itchy product.
