KB Insulators is a licensed dealer installer for Johns Manville, a Berkshire Hathaway company. Johns Manville's Spider® Plus Blow-in Fiber Glass Insulation reduces drying time allowing installation of vapour retarder much earlier than traditional blow-in fiber glass insulation products.
JM Spider® Plus fibre glass blow-in insulation, now featuring interlocking fibre technology, is the next evolution of the JM Formaldehyde-free™ insulation family. Interlocking fibre technology allows the fibres to spring and lock into cavities with no adhesive or netting. This complete coverage results in superior thermal performance and sound control. A simple installation that’s typically faster than other spray systems and unprecedented drying times, JM Spider® Plus saves professional installers time and money on every project.
How fast does JM Spider® Plus Insulation Dry?
Installed as recommended, JM Spider® Plus needs no drying time.
Standard practice is to install JM Spider® Plus insulation with 10 percent moisture or less — a lower moisture content than you’ll find in most new wood framing. That means you can put up a vapour retarder or gypsum board without waiting, and without worrying about trapping excessive moisture in the wall, no matter what the humidity or temperature outside*.
* When installed in framing deeper than 2x6, allow 24 hours drying time before installing a low-permeability vapour retarder like polyethylene.
