I tried to research and find out what I am dealing with, as I am looking to
install fiberglass batts over this blow in insulation and make a storage floor
to use the attic as storage space. But I can seem to figure out with what I am
dealing with . House was built in the 50's There is 2 layers top layer looks
like cellulose paper insulation as I can see text on portions of it , but
extremely dusty. Underneath this is a dark gray material that looks like it has
tiny small glass balls through out the material. I am full covered when entering
the attic with a 3m 6800 full face mask while working up there. BUT IS THIS
Could be shredded paper? Unsafe what way - it might be inflammable :(
but you could take a bit to test.
You'll get better responses in uk.d-i-y, the problem though is you're
using homeownershub which doesn't have a good reputation - a lot of
people using it seem to be idiots, replying to 10 year old posts. If you
can access newsgroups through a different method that would help.
