The Custom Spray System
K-13 is the spray-applied insulation tailored to your specific project requirements for insulation (R value), noise reduction (NRC), color, durability, condensation control, texture, and aesthetics.  In addition, it usually provides these features at lower installed prices than many common systems such as rigid board and batt insulations, sprayed plasters, and acoustical ceilings.

It is applied to virtually any properly prepared surface configuration of wood, steel, concrete, glass and other common construction surfaces.  K-13 can be sprayed up to five inches thick overhead in one application without mechanical support.  Additionally, K-13 serves as the exposed finish requiring no additional materials.

A Total System: Fiber, Binder, Application
K-13 is a total system of recycled natural fibers, chemical treatment, binding system and application method.  The K-13 system begins with specially prepared cellulose fibers which are chemically treated to add resistance to fire, mold and mildew.  K-13 is produced in a strict, quality controlled manufacturing process.

K-13 is applied by an international network of licensed applicators through approved fiber machines and nozzles for control of the fiber/binder ratio.  During application, the K-13 fibers are combined with a patented adhesive.  The finished product is a strong, durable monolithic coating of a predetermined thickness.  Some surfaces will require priming prior to being sprayed.

Naturally Tough
With its carpet-like texture and wide variety of colors, K-13 is especially attractive as a surface finish in new construction as well as renovation projects.  Available in six standard colors, K-13 can also be specified in specially matched custom colors.
Thermal Performance
K-13 insulates by creating dead air spaces between and within its hollow fibers.  Because K-13 fibers are sprayed-in-place, they fill cracks, seams and voids, forming a monolithic coating over the substrate which reduces air infiltration.  Unlike prefabricated insulations, K-13 has no voids or compressed areas to reduce thermal efficiency.  The result is a more effective in-place product with exceptionally low heat transfer characteristics.

The patented adhesive utilized in the installation of K-13 adheres to virtually all common construction materials including: metal, wood, concrete, urethane, styrofoam and glass.  Some surfaces may require pretreatment prior to installing K-13.  This unique adhesive provides unequaled strength allowing applications of 3/4 inch to over 5 inches without mechanical support.  This capability provides R-values from 3 to over 19.

Condensation Control
For areas such as indoor pools and ice arenas, K-13 aids in condensation control.  The proper combination of K-13 and ventilation prevents condensation on metal, concrete and other surfaces.  K-13 actually reduces ventilation requirements, saving in both the ventilation equipment investment and operating costs.
Acoustical Performance
The resilient fibers of K-13 absorb sound energy instead of reflecting it, reducing reverbation time and making speech and music more intelligible.  Excessive noise is eliminated with the application of K-13 while greatly improving ambient sound quality in a wide variety of building projects including auditoriums, sports facilities, detention facilities, television and sound studios, convention centers and parking garages.
