K-13 is a spray-applied insulation product tailored to your specific project requirements for insulation (R- value), noise reduction (NRC), color, durability, condensation control, texture, and aesthetics. K-13 can be applied to virtually any substrate including wood, steel, concrete, glass and other common surfaces. K-13 serves as an exposed finish requiring no additional treatment or materials. K-13 is comprised of high quality recycled natural cellulose fibers, chemically treated to provide a Class I fire rating and prevent mold growth, then blended with a multi-component adhesive system. Available in a wide variety of colors, K-13 is especially attractive as a surface finish in new construction as well as renovation projects. Available in seven standard colors, K-13 can also be specified in specially matched custom colors.

For areas such as indoor pools and ice arenas, K13 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 cost.
The resilient fibers of K-13 absorb sound energy instead of reflecting it, reducing reverberation time and making speech and music more intelligible. Excessive noise is reduced 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.
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 helps reduce 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 loss 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 pre-treatment 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.
