EKOFIBER®

EKOFIBER®

EKOFIBER® is a loose thermal insulation material made from cellulose fiber that forms a barrier for the flow of heat. It features high flame resistance and secures surfaces against fungi and mould. In order to achieve such parameters, the fiber undergoes proper chemical impregnation.

EKOFIBER® is perfect for transferring moisture without storing it inside and, as a result, it does not require application of vapor barrier foil. It may be applied on the whole area of the building, perfectly securing it against development of fungi, preventing its corrosion, and protecting it from rodents and insects.

Application

EKOFIBER® is widely used as thermal insulation in various building constructions, regardless the applied construction materials or purpose, starting from houses and farm buildings, through industrial and sport facilities, to large blocks of flats and sacral buildings.

Technical data
