Waste produced during the manufacturing process of H-Shield can be diverted from the waste stream by using it in packaging and in the manufacture of other Hunter insulation products.
Hunter H-Shield polyisocyanurate roof insulation, either with Hunter labels or on a private label basis has recovered or recycled content of the foam core of 9% minimum. The recovered/recycled content of the H-Shield insulation’s core stems solely from the polyol component of the formulation. The polyol component, along with the isocyanurate and blowing agents, are the major ingredients of the foam core. Additionally, the facer contains 75% recycled cellulose.
