Owens Corning has launched its latest advancement: PINK Next Gen Fiberglas insulation.
Featuring advanced fiber technology, this superior insulation solution enables up to 23% faster installation compared to our existing products, according to Owens Corning.
The advanced fiber technology of PINK Next Gen Fiberglas creates a tightly woven network of soft, fine fibers to form a super-resilient blanket of insulating micro-pockets. Leveraging several new technology innovations, the new product is safe for installers and residents and faster to install than competitive insulation products and spray foam insulation.
Because no hazardous chemicals are required to be mixed on the install site, there is less potential for human error, increasing peace of mind for installers and residents.
“Contractors today have high-performance expectations and extremely tight timelines,” said Joe Wagner, insulation marketing director at Owens Corning.. “This product evolution is a significant step-change in meeting the needs of contractors, as well as installers, builders, and homeowners.”
The product is also designed to meet building codes and help professionals manage through tight labor timelines and budgets by reducing install time, the company said.
PINK Next Gen Fiberglas insulation focuses on solving problems in four meaningful areas:
Fiberglass as a material is noncombustible. It offers 99%-safer fire performance and no chemical fire retardants added to fiberglass (99% less smoke generation potential under controlled fire test conditions versus a competitive combustible insulation material).

“PINK Next Gen insulation sets a new standard for insulation as the right choice for contractors, builders and homeowners," Wagner added. "This is just the beginning of a series of ongoing innovations in 2021 and beyond that will enable Owens Corning to continue exceeding customers' high expectations."
