ISOVER's new glass wool generation "Nouvelle laine" contains at least 40% recycled glass and a vegetal binder coming from cereal crop waste recovery. This binder permits the link between glass fibres to obtain a thermal and acoustic insulant. It concerns interior insulation like partition walls or attic insulation. Those new products have high thermal, acoustic and mechanical performances; They are easy to cut and handle with soft-touch and dust emission reduction and they don't need any new specific process to use compared with other glass wool products on the market.
