Knauf Insulation will be displaying its range of innovative and high performing thermal and acoustic insulation solutions at the BuildNZ exhibition, 4-5 July 2018.

Knauf Insulation will demonstrate in-situ insulation solutions that can be used as sustainable solutions for energy efficient, thermally comfortable and healthy buildings.

Earthwool® glasswool insulation has been available in New Zealand since 2012 and has provided builders and households with a choice of high quality glasswool insulation that is super-soft and easy to handle. Made using up to 80 per cent recycled glass and with the revolutionary ECOSE® Technology binder, which contains no added formaldehyde, petro- based chemicals or bleaches, Earthwool® glasswool benefits from reduced embodied energy and delivers superior environmental sustainability and has a GreenTag Level A rating.

DriTherm® will also be shown in a masonry cavity wall display. DriTherm® was developed for masonry walls and is silicone treated to ensure moisture resistance, which is backed by a 50 moisture resistance guarantee. Like all Earthwool® glasswool insulation products, DriTherm® has inherent thermal, acoustic and fire performance.

Knauf Insulation will also showcase its blow-in glasswool solutions for high performing homes. Since its launch in New Zealand in 2015, Jet Stream® MAX has been specified for a number of high profile homes, which have been designed to achieve high thermal performance and energy efficiency. The installation process for Jet Steam® MAX allows designers and homeowners to achieve outstanding thermal performance as it reduces thermal bridging by fully-filling all gaps and voids and it can be installed at a high density in order to achieve high R-Values.
