Sustainable Fiberglass Insulation

Knauf EcoBatt and EcoRoll Fiberglass Insulation

It’s not the prettiest insulation on the market, that’s for sure. While it may lack in the looks department, what it is made up of more than makes up for its lackluster exterior. Knauff EcoBatt and EcoRoll fiberglass insulation usher in a new generation of sustainable fiberglass insulation. Its brown color comes from ECOSE Technology; a revolutionary binding agent that further extends the sustainability of the product. ECOSE holds the product together, giving it shape, and its brown color. The ECOSE binding agent is plant based, replacing the traditional phenol/formaldehyde (PF) binder that has been traditionally used in this insulation product category. Furthermore, EcoBatt and EcoRoll Insulation combines sand, one of the most abundant resources, recycled bottle glass and ECOSE to create the sustainable product.

 

It’s because of this high recycled content that Knauf EcoBatt and EcoRoll have achieved a UL Environment claim validation for over 50% recycled glass content. In addition, it has also received a UL Greenguard Gold certification for low chemical emissions, as well as being verified to be formaldehyde-free. And if that isn't cool enough – the makers, Kanuf Insulation, are excellent stewards of sustainability
