Converting To Formaldehyde Free Glass Mineral Wool Insulation

Effective from 1st June 2013, PGF Insulation will be converting most of its glass mineral wool insulation product range to formulations that do not contain added formaldehyde. PGF’s conversion is the first in the region and is the only mineral insulation manufacturer in the region who is able to manufacture and commercialize formaldehyde free mineral wool insulation.

 

First phase of the conversion exercise will include all ECOWOOL product range except semi rigid board and sectional pipe insulation. The decision to make such a monumental change was based on good market research and the realisation that social, legal and regulatory trends were moving toward stricter control of formaldehyde.

 

On top of the superior insulation features brought by ECOWOOL, BROWNIE is formaldehyde free. It employs formaldehyde free binder that is free of formalin, phenol or any other artificial chemicals. BROWNIE helps to improve indoor air quality and offer a sustainable alternative for earning points in a variety of green programs such as GBI and LEED®.

 

Formaldehyde is one of the sources of poor indoor air quality and depending on the exposure limit, it can cause both short-term and long-term health effects.  BROWNIE eliminates formaldehyde emissions during manufacturing, installation and after installation, keeping everyone away and free from formaldehyde exposure.  

 

BROWNIE is tested to contain low volatile organic compounds (VOCs) and formaldehyde free. Please contact any of our sales personal or contact us at info@ecowool.com.my for further information.
