JM Spider
Why JM Spider?

• Small Fiber Diameter:
• Superior thermal and acoustic performance
• Provides higher airflow resistance vs. cellulose
• Small Nodule Size:
• Allows insulation to easily flow around obstacles within a wall cavity
• Allows for complete and uniform cavity fill
• Allows for use of small diameter application hoses and mortar tools
• Minimizes potential for equipment plugging
•Won’t lose R-value due to natural convection

* The recommended installed “dense pack” density for JM Spider is 2.2 pcf for drill and fill application. Typical installed “dense pack” densities for cellulose range from 3.0 to 3.5 pcf, some weatherization agencies recommend 4.0 pcf to improve airflow resistance.
