New '\ises the Aboard, they say, are' bclni; found every day. ' ' •'• Insulating board, a comparatively new; product as building materials go, was rirsl introduced auout .tlur-^rs ago., it is . mami/acttired from wood fibers and from the fibers ol sugar cane stalks, corn stalks and. other materials not ordinarily used for other .manufacturing purposes.. For this reason, it has been available for , both civilian ami milJ Hury. needs. .'"..''. A primary iise' for insulating tullcling board hns been in the re- surfnclng of interior walls and ceilings. While dccorntlvc tile and ,)lnnk shaped Insulntlng boards are obtainable for 1:1:3 purpose, the standard board also has its advantages. It covers large areas quickly and at a low cost. Batten •strips an c i moldings are used over :nc joints where boards meet. Where insulating building board s used as an interior finish the opm not only is given a new, surface, but it is effectively insulated as well. This insulating value has made thc material especially popular for constructing attic and basement rooms. The economy of insulating building board has favored its use for building and lining enrages, enclosing porches, building tool' sheds mid poultry buildings and other jobs where cost must be kept within tlie building restriction limitation. 1 !. : ' Probably thc mast extensive demand for insulating building board hns come from thc farm field. Besides using it as an insulating m'a- tcrinl, farmers have found that'll can be used for constructing a wide variety of animal shelters and stor- age houses. It replaces critical ^materials In tlie construction of flues and duels. In addition, It is a handy material wherever partitions arc needed. Insulating building board comes in four-foot widths and In lengths ii]) to 12 feet.
