bio-based insulation

bio-based insulation

Made of renewable biomaterials that are more energy efficient, healthier, and more durable than traditional thermal insulation. They can be applied as foams, sprayfoams, polymers, or biofibers, and are safe for the environment. Bio-based insulations are lightweight, contain no volatile organic compounds, provide a minimum R-value of 3.5 per inch, have excellent thermal and acoustical property, and meet U.S. government requirements for renewable resources. They have a Class 1 fire rating, have low levels of free-floating dust and allergens, and are not affected by moisture, mold, or insects. See also: Insulation systems

Our objectives include advancing state of the art in the technology and application of multifunctional bio-based insulation materials, vapour permeable and hygrothermal and moisture buffering finishes, together with wood panel products, to create both internal partition and external highly insulated wall panels.
