A new range of biobased (fiberwood) insulation products with low dust for buildings

January 2023


The brand new Flex Contact range is a new generation of insulation products dedicated to buildings. Currently,our main customers are carpenters who are fond of our products because they use to installing insulation boards made from wood (their favourite raw material) even if they generate dust. However, plasterboards installers are reluctant to use our products despite an huge market demand for biobased soltuions because they prefer to install traditional insulation prodcuts as mineral wood, Thanks to a formula change, we are able to provide an high quality comfort for these installers and to convert them to fiberwood products providing more comfortable products. Actually, our brand new range Flex Contact range is very less dusty and our boards have a better mechanic structure. Moreover, our environnemental footprint is better because the binder content has been divided by 2 and comes from an European supplier.
