PGF Insulation offers a high end glass mineral wool insulation material which earns an excellent rating in its overall performance assessment. Therefore, the unique combination of physical characteristics, which provide safety, durability, sustainability and long term economic benefits, making PGF Insulation glass mineral wool the preferred insulating material for the construction industry.
Recycled glasses are all that is required to produce PGF Insulation glass mineral wool insulation. At PGF Insulation, more than 80% of recycled glasses are used to replace silica sand which otherwise will be sent to landfill. The recycled industrial glass melted at 1,450 °C to form a lava like molten glass. The molten glass produced is converted into fibres by rotary process that combines a centrifugal drawing of the glass through a rotating device drilled with thousands of tiny holes and attenuated by high temperature gas jet streams.
PGF Insulation produces high end superior quality insulation material for the construction industry. The insulation is manufactured primarily from more than 80% of recycled glasses to replace silica sand in our manufacturing process. Consumption of energy and other materials is minimised in our manufacturing process. In fact, the energy and CO² saved by glass mineral wool can be hundreds of times that used in manufacture of the product. With the recycling of glass and conservation of energy, PGF Insulation makes an important ecological contribution.
