Title: Airflow Resistance of Loose-Fill Mineral Fiber Insulations in Retrofit Applications

Abstract

This report expands on Building America Report 1109 by applying the experimental apparatus and test method to dense-pack retrofit applications using mineral fiber insulation materials. Three fiber glass insulation materials and one stone wool insulation material were tested, and the results compared to the cellulose results from the previous study.
