1. Mineral Wool with ECOSE® Technology
As the first mineral wool manufacturer in technical insulation, we are offering our whole product range with our natural binder ECOSE® Technology.
Since the introduction for HVAC applications in 2016, our products with ECOSE® Technology have been refined and dedicated to high performance requirements in Technical Insulation. The excellent technical and fire performance characteristics of the naturally brownish colored insulation materials remain at constant high level. On top the new product range grants benefits in handling and sustainability compared to mineral wool with standard phenol-formaldehyde binder.
2. What is ECOSE® Technology?
ECOSE® Technology is the result of five years of intensive research and extensive testing.
Driven by our constant efforts to supply innovative products to our customers, which satisfy market demands and the requirement for sustainable materials.
In contrast to conventional phenol-formaldehyde resin binding agents, ECOSE® Technology is primarily based on natural organic raw materials.
No formaldehydes are added during manufacture, so that the binding agent mainly consists of naturally-occurring raw materials. Products which are manufactured with ECOSE® Technology do not contain phenols, colouring agents or artificial dyes.
Natural brown instead of yellow – this is the appearance of the natural Glass Wool insulation materials with formaldehyde-free binding agent, whose characteristic colour is not produced with dyes, but rather is completely natural.
Renewable raw materials in the binding agents have replaced almost all fossil fuel-based materials. We therefore save energy, and reduce power consumption and CO2 emissions. As well as this, products with the formaldehyde-free binding agent have a high insulating efficiency for thermal comfort, and are also non-combustible for personal safety.
Mineral Wool insulation materials with ECOSE® Technology therefore meet all of the relevant standards and also ensure for an excellent indoor air quality.
