Knauf Insulation, a global manufacturer of fiberglass insulation, has launched its new HVAC fiberglass insulation product line, Knauf Performance+.

This product line is the first of its kind to be CERTIFIED asthma & allergy friendly and the only HVAC fiberglass insulation line that is formaldehyde-free.

The asthma & allergy friendly Certification Program established by the Asthma and Allergy Foundation of America (AAFA) and Allergy Standards Limited (ASL), certifies products more suitable for people with asthma and allergies.

The process to become certified requires third-party physical and chemical testing to ensure products reduce allergen exposure and limit pollutants in the indoor environment.

The company’s SVP of sales & marketing, Nathan Walker, said Knauf care about what goes into its products, how they are made, and most importantly how they will impact installers and occupants.

"Knauf's commitment to indoor air quality is long-standing, demonstrated by pioneering bio-based, formaldehyde-free binder ECOSE, and our status as the first building products manufacturer to achieve GREENGUARD certification,” he said.

“In a world where indoor air is 2 to 5 times more polluted than outdoor air (EPA), improving indoor air quality is critical. The Knauf Performance+ line is formaldehyde-free and boasts low VOCs (Volatile Organic Compounds) levels, which significantly reduces the risk of asthma and allergy triggers.

"By the end of 2024, Knauf commits to eliminating formaldehyde from all its remaining products. This move sets a new standard in the production of high-performing building materials.”

The Knauf Group is a family-owned global manufacturer of building materials based in Iphofen, Germany.

As a multi-billion-dollar company, Knauf leverages the expertise of over 40,000 employees across 300 production facilities in 90 countries.
