Some types of insulation are available with facing, which helps protect the surface, hold the insulation together and fasten the material to building components. Facing can be any variety of material—common ones include:
Facings can not only protect insulation during the manufacturing process and beyond but also act as an air barrier, vapor barrier and/or radiant barrier. Some can also help make the insulation more fire-resistant. Foil and plastic facings on rigid polyisocyanurate foam panels can help stabilize the R-value.
Here at Broken Drum Insulation of Bakersfield, we install Thermax insulation board, which has a glass-fiber-reinforced, faced polyisocyanurate foam core. We use it for a variety of commercial insulation projects. Designed for exposed interior applications to withstand light to moderate impact, Thermax is intended as an insulation interior finish system for metal and wood post frames as well as concrete and masonry buildings in manufacturing, cold storage, agricultural and other applications as governed by building codes.
Faced insulation should not be placed on top of existing insulation in the attic. Any new batt or roll insulation installed over existing insulation in the attic needs to be without a vapor retarder (face). The vapor retarder on top of or between layers of insulation can trap moisture. Any existing batt or roll insulation in the attic should have the facing against the attic drywall floor or no facing at all.
