Low VOC Glass Wool (EcoBuild) The Future of Insulation


According to international studies, we spend about 90% of our time inside building it includes home, work, car, shopping mall and other enclosed areas; but unfortunately Indoor air quality is globally more polluted than outdoor air with some exceptions in fine particles in some cities.

ASHARE refers, “Indoor Air Quality (IAQ) as the air quality within and around buildings and structures, especially as it relates to the health and comfort of building occupants. Understanding and controlling common pollutants indoors can help reduce the risk of indoor health concerns.” Health effects from indoor air pollutants may be experienced soon after exposure or, possibly, years later. IAQ depends on many parameters including but not limited to Climatic conditions, ventilation, humidity, moisture, mold, dust, Presence of chemicals and volatile organic compounds (VOC’s).

Effects of poor IAQ:

Researches and many studies have proved without doubt, there is a strong correlation between Indoor Air Quality and Health, Performance and Comfort. Some for the short-term Heath Effects of IAQ are irritation of eyes, nose, and throat, headaches, dizziness, Fatigue, Colds or other viral infections. The likelihood of immediate reactions to indoor air pollutants varies from person to person depending on his/her age, pre-existing medical conditions and individual sensitivities and allergies.

Volatile organic compounds (VOC’s)

Levels of volatile organic compounds (VOCs) are one the major contributor for poor IAQ. Both natural and man-made sources of VOC and have long been associated with health effects and nuisance odors. The sources of the VOC concentrations are many, depending on pre and post occupancy. Building materials are one the major source of VOCs that have an impact during construction and post occupancy.

There is an increasing need and urgency in the construction market for Low VOC emitting building materials and especially for green rating buildings such as LEED rating building which promotes the use of Low VOC emitting products. 

Low VOC Glass Wool is the need for the hour and EcoBuild- range of glass wool produced by KIMMCO-ISOVER is a specific product with very know VOC emission used for the comfort and protection insulation; especially in sensitive buildings such as schools, hotels, hospitals and Green Buildings . It is crafted through natural resources, and its performance safeguards the environment during a life of the building.
