The new generation of glass mineral wool

Knauf Insulation’s glass mineral wool uses advanced in house technology that differentiates Knauf glass wool from any other manufacturer. Most notably, Knauf’s mineral wool insulation uses ECOSE Technology, a revolutionary, new, non-added formaldehyde binder technology, based on rapidly renewable materials instead of petro-based chemicals. Our mineral wool with ECOSE Technology doesn’t look or feel like any insulation you have ever experienced.

  • Softer feel
  • Odourless
  • Easy to cut
  • ...superior level of sustainability...

The natural brown colour represents a level of sustainability never achieved before: ECOSE Technology
