YSM's patented CTI - "Combined Thermal Insulation" system - combines a flexible layer of environmentally-friendly 100% polyester fibers, including hollow fibers, formulated to provide the best insulation layer, with two external layers of DustBlock™ - the first truly dustproof radiant barrier, providing a highly effective insulating system appropriate for any climate, even the most extreme.
R-Values - for the whole attic system
As tested and calculated by R&D Services , Inc., Cookeville, TN 38502
Among the many advantages of the CTI system are:
NO ITCHING –no fiberglass or mineral wool fibers to irritate the skin, making the system most USER FRIENDLY
NO MASKS OR GOGGLES – no harmful, lung- and eye-irritating fibers
NO DUST – introducing the patent-pending DustBlock™ dustproof radiant barrier - maintains high performance even when there is dust build-up on the reflective layer
HIGH THERMAL EFFICIENCY – high R-factor values in relation to thickness. Specifications for R=1.5 to R=6 are available.
DIY - Easy to use – can be cut with a utility knife or scissors to fit any space, without introducing fibers into the air. Ideal for Do-It-Yourself.
The DustBlock™ dustproof radiant barrier makes it possible to create an efficient ventilating space between the CTI system and the hot outside tiles. The ventilation improves the thermal performance of the entire roof system.
