Made with natural ingredients

The glass mineral wool insulation products are made up of 90% glass mineral wool, the majority of which is recycled glass cullet, and other virgin mineral raw materials including sand and limestone. Glass mineral wool can have up to 80% recycled content. A bio-based binder and trace amounts of performance-enhancing chemicals make up the remaining 10%.

Zero harmful ingredients

The Glass Mineral Wool with ECOSE Technology® is certified by DECLARE label, which is a significant public record that lists every component down to every 0.01% of its composition. A crucial reminder that up to 80% of these products are created from recycled glass is provided by the certification.

Also, the accreditation occurs at a time when DECLARE-certified goods are widely recognized for their positive effects on wellbeing by Green Building Rating Systems including WELL, Living Building Challenge, and LEED programs.

Guaranteed with the highest indoor air quality

90% of people’s time was spent indoors prior to the pandemic, and since then, as interior building health has gained popularity, that percentage is likely to have increased. The Glass Mineral Wool with ECOSE Technology® is approved for indoor air quality to the highest Eurofins Gold Standard.
