Features of Glass Wool Nature

  • Natural organic binder extracted from corn

  • Soft texture and high work efficiency

  • Zero formaldehyde to prevent sick-house syndrome

  • Over 70% of materials are recycled and reused

  • Glass Wool Nature: Clean Roll

    With the application of natural organic binder extracted from corn, the level of formaldehyde emission remains below the regulatory standard and prevents sick house syndrome.
    Also, it contributes to environmental protection and saves resources by using recycled ingredients such as waste glass.
    This product is packaged using a compressor package and an elastic roll with superior resilience for easy carriage and storage. Also, with lightweight and flexibility, it is easily installed on surfaces with complicated shapes. It is mainly used for thermal insulation of buildings and heating facilities (tanks, ducts, etc.)

  • Glass Wool Nature: Clean Board

    KCC Glass Wool Nature uses natural organic binder extracted from corn and emits zero formaldehyde to eliminate sick house syndrome.
    Also, it contributes to environmental protection and saves resources by using recycled ingredients such as waste glass. This product is fabricated in a plate form, providing high strength, durability and superior thermal insulation/acoustic performance.
    Hence, it is used as a thermal insulator and soundproof material in various buildings, railway cars, vessels and soundproof walls.

  • Glass Wool: Clean Panel

    KCC Glass Wool is manufactured by fiberizing molten glass ingredients at high temperatures using high-speed rotation. With flexible and soft fibers delicately woven, it provides excellent heat insulation and acoustic performance. Inorganic ingredients make it difficult to burn and with no deformation over time, it can be used semi-permanently. It has good workability as it can be easily cut using a general tool such as a knife.
    And as it is manufactured based on various specifications, it is an essential product for all buildings where heat insulation and acoustic performance are required.
    Glass wool clean panel has improved strength in tabular form. It has smooth edges and superior workability. Its excellent non-flammable and fireproof properties minimize life and property loss in the event of a fire.

  • Glass Wool: Self Cover

    KCC Glass Wool is manufactured by fiberizing molten glass ingredients at high temperatures using high-speed rotation. With flexible and soft fibers delicately woven, it provides excellent heat insulation and acoustic performance. Inorganic ingredients make it difficult to burn and with no deformation over time, it can be used semi-permanently. It has good workability as it can be easily cut using a general tool such as a knife.
    And as it is manufactured based on various specifications, it is an essential product for all buildings where heat insulation and acoustic performance are required. KCC Self Cover was made by CMP technique—the latest thermos-manufacturing technique.
    It has no thickness deviation, has outer covers in non-flammable waterproof, silver-foil crafted yarn for installation convenience and double-sided tapes at the end of the finishing material to carry out installation and finish simultaneously. (CMP: Continuous Molded Pipe)
