Cynthia, a game changer in insulation materials
Cynthia is a fibre, obtained from the invasive Water Hyacinth owing to a patented process, used for insulation panels.
Cynthia is a natural fibre obtained from Eichhornia crassipes, an invasive plant also called Water Hyacinth growing on the surface of rivers, mainly present in hot and wet regions like: Florida, Vietnam, Kenya, and also Spain and Portugal. The whole patented process consists in two steps : The plant is first harvested and then cut, pressed and dried. The next steps consist of turning it to fibres of around 2 cm length and entangling and glueing them together to form a panel of a typical thickness of 5 cm, a standard for insulation panels.
