Earthwool insulation is a kind of glass wool insulation that Knauf Insulation exclusively manufactures. Knauf Insulation is a global insulation producer with operations in 35 countries and more than 40 production facilities manufacturing glass wool, Rockwool, expanded polystyrene (EPS), and expanded polyethylene (EPE) (XPS). Knauf Insulation is a proud leader in creating and researching energy-efficient solutions for houses in Australia and throughout the globe. Earthwool insulation is made using ECOSE Technology and this distinguishes it from other types of glass wool insulation. Earthwool insulation offers a lot to offer, from cost-effective pricing to being healthier for the environment!
ECOSE technology, which was introduced in 2009, is a breakthrough sustainable bio-based binder. It’s a natural binder that doesn’t include any phenol or formaldehyde. Natural raw materials are replacing the nasty chemicals used in conventional binders. There are no additional dyes, bleaches, or artificial colors. Thus Earthwool insulation has a pure brown ‘earthy’ color. The technology has improved the product’s environmental credentials while maintaining its thermal, acoustic, fire, and mechanical characteristics. ECOSE technology works by turning natural organic resources into the inert polymer, creating a solid binder that holds fiber strands together. It implies that chemicals like formaldehyde and phenol (used in conventional binders) aren’t needed or utilized.
- Performance in terms of fire resistance
- Binder without formaldehyde
- Reduced production emissions – reduced energy inputs in the resin mean less environmental effect.
- The ECOSE technology binder produces a natural brown color with no artificial coloring.
Knauf Earthwool is not composed of wool, despite its name. It is made from recycled glass bottles, sand, and other similar elements. Earthwool is a kind of glass wool, as you would be aware. Earthwool insulation has become odorless and has a preferred neutral odor over other insulation types, including formaldehyde. Because earth wool insulation is simple to cut, no spaces are left uninsulated, resulting in more excellent insulation.
Furthermore, compared to other traditional glass wool products, Earthwool insulation has a gentler feel and is less irritating. It is also ecologically beneficial since it contains a high percentage of recycled material and its container is entirely recyclable. It also has demonstrated durability since the bio-based binder offers remarkable strength, making products made with ECOSE technology extraordinarily robust and with a long life lifetime. Knauf insulation comes with a 50-year product guarantee for your peace of mind.
- Soft to the touch and simple to install
- Exceptional thermal performance
- Capability to absorb sound
- Product guarantee of 50 years
- Electricity costs are reduced
Earthwool insulation is suitable for a wide range of applications, including residential, commercial, and industrial. It comes in a range of product kinds and R-values to meet your home’s thermal needs. Insulative properties, sound insulation, wall insulation, ceilings insulation, roof blankets, and underfloor insulation are all product kinds. If you reside in Melbourne, Sydney, or Adelaide, we suggest putting a least R-value of R2.5 in your home’s exterior and internal walls, R3.0 in your ceiling, and R2.5 in your basement area. We offer to raise your R-value in alpine colder regions for superior heat performance and thermal advantages.
Earthwool insulation is much less irritating and more pleasant to handle due to a mix of innovative technologies. Knauf Insulation’s unique methods provide longer strands, minimizing braking and decreasing skin irritation since smaller strands may readily enter your pores. Furthermore, since ECOSE technology is free of harsh chemicals like formaldehyde and phenol, the goods are less irritating when compared to other glassware materials.
A soundproofing product made of earth wool insulating material is available in various thicknesses and densities to suit most wall cavities. Acoustic insulation has a greater density than conventional thermal insulation, which helps to reduce noise transmission. It is used in interiors as well as on the exterior of buildings. If you live in a multi-story house, we suggest adding this insulation between the floors and along the interior walls. Installing acoustic insulation has several benefits, including reducing annoying outside sounds like traffic, dog barking, and loud neighbors. We are reducing noise transmission between spaces and floors to provide a quieter and more pleasant living environment. Earthwool Sound Shield material is an excellent acoustic insulation option for your house because of the additional advantages of ECOSE Technology.
Earthwool insulation is a low-cost, high-reward insulation option that improves your home’s thermal and acoustic performance. Together with the Earthwool batt line offers a variety of R-Values, allowing builders, designers, installers, and DIYers to choose the optimum thermal efficiency for their project.
