What is the best way to cut UltraTouch?
We have found the simplest way to cut UltraTouch is to score it with a utility knife against a straight edge or use a beveled (toothless) saw blade in a small utility saw. The Insul-Knife is a general purpose cutting tool for insulation materials. Keep it sharp using the Accusharp sharpener included with an Insul-Knife Kit
