We have done several real world and simulated tests and the application
process has been perfected to reduce settlement to less than a credit
card thickness. The cavities are not closed when the product is
installed, we use an insulweb material to install the product then apply
the exterior sheathing once complete visual inspection is completed.

Do you have documentation of cellulose settlement problems during
The settled density of cellulose is 1.5 - 2.0 pcf. If it is blown into
closed cavities at 3.0 - 3.5 pcf (which would be easier to monitor in a
factory setting than on site), then it cannot possibly settle unless
there was physical degradation of the fiber.

the risk of settlement by eliminating the space for settlement to
