During the American Institute of Architects (AIA) Conference on Architecture 2017 in Orlando, Florida, Owens Corning introduced formaldehyde-free Thermafiber® light-density mineral wool insulation solutions.

As the first and only formaldehyde-free mineral wool insulation in North America, Thermafiber mineral wool insulation solutions represent a breakthrough for architects, specifiers and contractors interested in achieving green building standards. Thermafiber SAFB™ (Sound Attenuation Fire Blankets) is available for specification now and will be in the market later this year. Thermafiber UltraBatt™ will quickly follow in a series of formaldehyde-free Thermafiber mineral wool insulation solutions offered by Owens Corning.

Based on their fire resistance and performance properties, Thermafiber mineral wool insulation products have been installed in eight of the 20 tallest buildings in the world. In addition to the new formaldehyde-free offerings, Thermafiber mineral wool insulation also contributes to credits in green building programs and has a minimum 70 percent recycled content.
