Knauf to highlight ECOSE® Technology at Big 5 Saudi

Knauf Exeed Insulation is participating in Big 5 Saudi at stand number 2 G53 to create awareness among construction companies in Saudi Arabia on the potential benefits of using the company’s Phenol Formaldehyde free ECOSE® Technology for insulation. Mineral wool with ECOSE® Technology is the result of five years intensive research and testing and provides Knauf Insulation customers with innovative products which also meet the growing market demand for more sustainable construction materials.
The company’s new generation of mineral wool truly represents a step change in sustainability for the insulation industry. Knauf Insulation mineral wool products with ECOSE® Technology are different because they are made with a Phenol Formaldehyde-free binder derived from rapidly renewable materials, instead of traditional petro-based chemicals used in other insulation. The patented technology is up to 70 per cent less energy intensive than traditional binders and produces a ‘super-soft’ and easier to handle mineral wool, in a completely natural brown colour.
According to Daniele Cerutti, General Manager in Knauf Exeed Insulation, “With more than USD 240 million projects under construction in the residential and commercial sectors, Saudi Arabia, is a key market for our products. As per government regulations, developers, consultants and contractors in Saudi need to consider the overall sustainability of the materials selected and installed in the new buildings. Our sustainable ECOSE® Technology products help to meet this need as they contribute to efficiency of energy and improved indoor environmental performance of the buildings.”
He added: “Energy efficiency is a particular focus of this year’s Big 5 exhibition, as well as innovation in building materials and renovation sectors. We believe this event is an ideal platform for us to showcase our products to the industry’s decision makers.”
Knauf Exeed Insulation is a joint venture between Knauf Insulation Holding GmbH, one of the world's leading and fastest growing manufacturers of insulation materials; and UAE based Exeed Industries, a leading manufacturing group.
