Our contribution

ISOVER glass wool products do not and never did contain asbestos.

Very low concentrations of formaldehyde and VOC are found in ISOVER glass wool products, in conformance with ISO 16000 standards. Rating standards for VOC emissions, certification bodies such as Eurofins (Europe) or GreenGuard (North America) perform independent certifications of our ISOVER glass wool products in many international markets.

Innovative plant-based binders that are free of phenols, acrylics and formaldehyde are utilized in ISOVER’s new glass wool products, resulting in almost zero emission of formaldehyde indoors and meeting stringent indoor air quality standards in the industry.
