can't remember name of insulation.


I read of some fibre glass roll out insullation (batting) where the fibre glass fibres are sealed and won't fall off on your skin and clothes. It seems the best way to add insullation to my 30 50' attic? I don't want the foam or blow in stuff, what's left of it is still up there. Does anyone here know the name of what I am describing?
Thanks, Jim.

I have never used it, but remember seeing it years ago, have not seen it recently. Seem to recall it was Mansville or one of the big guys.

More "fun" than the other stuff!

More importantly than finding it, IMO, is to ask why you want it. There are better insulation materials available, like mineral wool, cellulose, wool, etc. FG is OK, but not the best stuff around.
