Tap Insulation

What is T ·A ·P ?
T·A·P is a new merger of two well-recognized technologies: borate pesticide and highly energy-efficient, all-natural cellulose insulation. PMP’s have had great success in “capping” customers’ attics, because T·A·P can be applied directly over existing attic insulation of any type to upgrade the thermal performance of the whole building. T·A·P is the first and only product available to offer the energy-saving benefits of STABILIZED Thermal performance, sound-absorbing Acoustical qualities, and Pest management. In addition to the outstanding benefits of standard cellulose insulation, T·A·P provides protection against common pests such as cockroaches, ants, and termites.

T·A·P into the benefits
Thermal insulation is a material having air-filled cells or voids, or heat-reflective surfaces, which retard the transfer of heat to cold. Acoustical insulation retards the transmission of sound. Pest control insulation, while performing the other functions of thermal and acoustical, is labeled to control listed insects. By Federal law, such insulation (and the manufacturing plant) must be registered with the US EPA, and carry an EPA-approved label. Additionally, the product must be registered with the pest control authorities in each state in which it is sold or manufactured. Because T·A·P is an EPA-labeled pesticide, in many states only a licensed PMP may sell the insulation.


What are the energy & money saving benefits?
T·A·P saves energy. T·A·P saves money by decreasing energy bills. It keeps homes cool in summer and warm in winter for less money: Comfortable year-round. Because T·A·P is denser than fiberglass insulation, air does not move through it well, so it resists heat transfer by convection, as well as conduction and radiation. And since there aren’t the leaks and drafts associated with ordinary insulation, mechanical systems don’t work as hard and can be down-sized, further saving money. Areas in the home maintain more uniform temperatures between floors and ceilings, upstairs and downstairs, even next to exterior walls. Comfort. Conservation.


What are the sound absorbing benefits?
T·A·P reduces unwelcome noise from outside and helps create a peaceful haven inside the home. Insulated interior walls reduce annoying noises (such as toilets flushing and appliances running) inside a house.


What are the pest controlling benefits?
T·A·P helps control pests in your home. Annoying pests can breed and form colonies in the attic and behind walls, coming out at night, seeking food and water. More than just annoying, they can severely damage a house. T·A·P is an EPA-labeled pest control insulation, treated with pure boric acid. Although deadly to many insects, T·A·P is acceptable for use around humans and pets. T·A·P eliminates self-grooming insects, where it is installed, upon contact. Insects cannot build up a tolerance to T·A·P, and it never needs re-treating. T·A·P controls ants, cockroaches, silverfish, termites, and other insects listed on the EPA label.
