Saint-Gobain’s eco-innovation efforts confirm our dedication to sustainable design, research and development. ISOVER’s continued efforts to improve and invest in breakthrough innovations prove our commitment to offering our customers the most appropriate options and solutions, as derived from sustainable materials.
Here are some recent examples of innovations by ISOVER:
- Facade F4 combines an external and internal insulation along with an airtightness system to provide maximum comfort to occupants, in the minimum space (for residential and offices). This is related to criteria 76 Thermal comfort.
- CLIMAVER® allows a -20% reduction on most environmental impacts. They are self-bearing, insulated air conditioning duct systems that are quick and easy to install. They perfectly replace conventional insulated metal ducts, providing excellent thermal, fire, acoustic and air quality performance. This is related to criteria 01 Air quality standard and criteria 74 Exterior noise intrusion.
- The ISOVER Multimax Lambda 030 glass wool is the mineral wool product with the best thermal performance on the market. It offers the same thermal resistance as other mineral wools but with a lower thickness. This is related to criteria 76 Thermal comfort.
- The new airtight and moisture control VARIO® Xtra system expands design possibilities and offers improved safety from moisture. The new VARIO® Xtra range offers a wide variety of efficient solutions for pitched roofs, timber frame walls and flat roofs. This is related to criteria 06 Microbe and mold control and criteria 12 Moisture management.
- The new glass wool generation is only available in some countries. Thanks to an innovative plantbased binder free from formaldehyde, phenols or acrylics, the release of formaldehyde into the indoor air environment is close to zero. This innovative glass wool product meets the industry’s most stringent standards relating to indoor air quality. This is related to criteria 01 Air quality standard.
