Metal Building Insulation

TLP MBI Header

TLP Metal Building Insulation is a fine fibered flexible blanket of glass fibers, bonded with thermosetting resin to provide good dimensional and handling properties. It is specifically designed for use in steel building systems and is available plain (unfaced) or faced with a factory applied vapour barrier.


TLP offers a complete line of vapour barrier facings which are an integral part of the Metal Building Insulation System. The facing is a vapour barrier, provides excellent light reflectivity, and adds structural strength. Facings also function as an aesthetic interior finish. Our facings are produced by Lamtec Corporation. These are our standard, in stock facings:,WMP-50, WMP-10, WMP-VR-R Plus, R-3035, Arenashield, and Gymguard.


Simply provide us with drawings or blue prints (fax or e-mail) or just give us a call with the building dimensions and we will be happy to provide you with a custom cut list for your building. You can pass this on to the erector for ease of installation. Click here to request a quote.

Tab Options

Several options are available for fastening the side tabs of the insulation rolls. It is typically the preference of the erector that makes this determination. Remember, it is vitally important that the rolls of insulation be butted tightly together during the tab fastening stage. Any gaps may result in condensation at the roof sheet.

All rolls packaged in Polyethylene bags. Faced MBI is wrapped in stretch film and labeled to show size and location of each roll.


Insulation should be stored in a dry elevated area and protected with a waterproof film. Arrange delivery so that it can be installed as soon as possible. If delays occur, it is best to open the poly bags to allow air circulation. Foil faced products like Arenashield must not be stored on or near freshly poured concrete to prevent corrosion.
