Benefits Of Our Insulation Products

We Are The Best Choice When It Comes To Performance

Our glasswool insulation solutions play a major role in providing thermal, fire safety, acoustic performance and comfort with the built environment.

It is widely known that buildings account for 40% of the worldwide carbon emissions, and increasing their energy efficiency is still a priority for governments as they try to combat climate change. Whilst the primary role insulation is to provide thermal performance, choosing the right insulation will also determine a building’s acoustic and fire safety properties as well as the level of comfort it provides for its users. Our glasswool insulation solutions provide a unique combination of performance.

The fire performance of the insulation gives it its ability to provide passive fire protection.

Buildings must be designed and constructed to minimise the risk of fire and its spread should it occur, as well as to maximise the structure’s stability and the ability of occupants to escape unharmed. As well as acting as a barrier to the fire, should it occur, our non-combustible glasswool insulation solutions will not add to its development stages, minimising its overall effect and consequences.


The energy saving properties and thermal performance of insulation keep buildings warm in winter and cool in summer.

The bigger the temperature difference between the inside and outside of a building, the faster the building will lose heat in winter and gain heat in summer.

Our glasswool insulation solutions help maintain a stable inside temperature by slowing heat transfer by convection, conduction and radiation.

By insulating a property properly, energy can be saved either from the heating system when heating a cold building, or from the air conditioning system when cooling a warm building.

The acoustic performance of insulation can help create an improved internal environment for building occupants.

Protection from noise contributes towards the ‘quality of life’ afforded by dwellings, and a healthy, productive and attractive environment in offices, hospitals, schools and other non-domestic buildings.

Our glasswool insulation solutions provide high levels of sound absorption and noise reduction, in new build or within existing buildings through retrofit, to provide improved sound insulation and
acoustic comfort.


Insulation can help create dry, comfortable indoor environments and buildings and have a major impact on the health and wellbeing of their users.

By preventing air leaks, uncontrolled condensation and possible mould spores, mildew or microbial organic compounds, a well-insulated, airtight building envelope also contributes to the health of a building — particularly if combined with efficient installation of the solutions and a controlled ventilation system.

Our glasswool insulation solutions provide all of the above benefits, but more importantly, thanks to our ECOSE® Technology, they contribute to high levels of indoor air quality and were the world’s first products to be awarded the Eurofins Gold Certificate for Indoor Air Comfort.

Policy Makers Drive Singapore's Net Zero Transition for Healthier Living

Policy makers played a pivotal role in guiding Singapore's transition to net zero emissions by 2050. The shift towards sustainability not only shapes construction decisions but also prioritizes the creation of healthier living spaces for Singaporeans.

In addressing indoor air quality, there are two essential strategies. Firstly, ensuring adequate ventilation to exhaust any VOCs present in the building and replace them with fresh air is crucial. Secondly, minimizing VOCs in building materials is paramount. The recent ban by the Singapore government on formaldehyde in paints highlights this importance Singapore government has banned formaldehyde in paints. Formaldehyde, is classified as a VVOC (very volatile organic compound), and is acknowledged to pose significant health risks.

Knauf Insulation is proud to support Singapore's transformative journey as outlined by the MPs. Unlike conventional glass and rock mineral wool products, Knauf Insulation’s revolutionary glasswool products, featuring ECOSE® Technology, have become the first in their category to receive the prestigious Eurofins Indoor Air Comfort Gold certificate, affirming compliance with the highest standards for low VOC (Volatile Organic Compounds) emissions, contributing to superior indoor air quality.

Furthermore, the entire Glass Mineral Wool product range has been awarded the DECLARE 'Red List Free' label, confirming they contain no harmful ingredients which appear on the International Living Future Institute’s Red List, which represents the “worst in class” materials, chemicals, and elements which are known to pose risks to human health. This label attests to our rigorous testing and full disclosure of product composition, with materials disclosed down to 0.01%. Our Glass Mineral Wool range is manufactured with up to 80% recycled content, with the remainder composed entirely of Red List Free raw materials.

Our mission is to actively contribute to fostering healthier and more sustainable living environments, not only in Singapore but also globally. To learn more about our commitment to sustainability and creating healthier living environments, visit our sustainability page at Sustainability (
