What is Earthwool?

Earthwool is the new mineral wool brand from Knauf Insulation, adding the benefits of ECOSE Technology – a revolutionary bio-based binder technology – to create a new kind of mineral wool insulation that is naturally brown. It offers significant improvements in terms of feel, handling and environmental performance, while still delivering the outstanding performance you expect from our traditional mineral wool.

The Benefits of Earthwool

Most people who have handled fibreglass will recognise the “itch” one gets from touching it. This generally makes mineral wool and glass fibre insulation unpleasant to install. Earthwool is a low irritant product, no itch!

The traditional binder has been replaced with a revolutionary environmentally-friendly and healthy NATURAL binder.

This means that Earthwool is healthier and has a lower embodied energy when compared to other mineral and glass fibre insulations. No bleach or artificial dyes are added to the product giving Earthwool its natural look.

The Better Option

Knauf’s commitment to continuous improvement and products of integrity means they have replaced their traditional fibre product range with  Earthwool.

In every other regard, they perform equally – if not better – to their traditional products and meet all required Australian Standards.
