Knauff and the environment.
The Glass Mineral Wool is available in the form of rolls. The density for glass mineral wool ranges from 10 to 85 kg/m³. In general, glass mineral wool consists of at least 92.5% inert material. The inert part is made of recycled glass (external cullet, up to 80% of the composition) and mainly sand and dolomite. The remaining fraction (less than or equal to 7.5%) is made of bio-based binder components. At Knauf Insulation, the binder used for the GMW products is the ECOSE binder whose origin is plant starch.
After a long, long useful life, Knauff insulation creates no handling or containment problems for contractors when it comes to demolishing a building.
