Cellulose Insulation and Fire: New data on fire safety of aged cellulose insulation.
Cellulose insulation installed on the floors of residential attics in three cities showed no sign of losing its fire retardant properties eight years after installation, according to a report published in the Proceedings of the Tenth International Conference on Thermal Insulation.

The field study by researchers Donald J. Ferm and Kelvin K. Shen, of U.S. Borax, Inc., evaluated the permanence of boric acid and borax pentahydrate in cellulose insulation. Data collected over an eight year period showed no statistically verifiable loss of either chemical from insulation as actually installed in attics.
