How Are Pink Batts Made?
It is made using recycled post-consumer glass. It also combines sand, soda ash, borax and limestone together to make the required mix. A resin is then used as the binder in the product.
In order to melt the glass, high temperatures of 1400 degrees need to be achieved. It then becomes a liquid. Once it has reached liquid form, it is poured into giant spinners which produces the glass wool product.
