PINK Next Gen Fiberglas Insulation

I had the chance to try Owens Corning’s new PINK Next Gen Fiberglas insulation. We work with contractors in the Boise area and have already finished dozens of jobs with the new insulation and find it so much easier to install.

PINK Next Gen recovers instantly and retains its stiffness, so it glides right into the stud cavity without fluffing or compressing. And it’s more comfortable and cleaner to handle: My guys say it splits cleanly around boxes and wires and fills cavities completely, saving a ton of time.

The company says the secret is advanced fiber technology—it’s got tightly woven, fine fibers to form a soft blanket of insulating micro-pockets. It does feel soft and looks uniform. You really can tell the difference with the first touch. And there’s far less dust, which is a major benefit when doing overhead work.

My installer Braden Chafin finds it’s not flimsy like other products and doesn’t stick to you or have little strands of insulation everywhere like we do with some of the other batt materials.

We also don’t have the mess or mixing of chemicals like other methods, so the other workers don’t have to evacuate and can keep working.

We’re just more productive with PINK Next Gen and many of our customers already prefer it to other brands. The only drawback is that you might have to wait until Q3 as it starts to roll out, but it’s well worth the wait.
