Owens Corning's EcoTouch fiberglass insulation with PureFiber binder technology

Owens Corning is taking its tried-and-true EcoTouch PINK fiberglass insulation line to a new level of green with the introduction of PureFiber binder technology. Unlike traditional binders, which utilize a formaldehyde-based formulation, PureFiber is made with natural materials, offering a formaldehyde-free product — and at no additional cost. The product uses a minimum of 50 percent recycled content (30 percent post-consumer) — the highest certified percentage in the fiberglass insulation industry — and features good product recovery, stiffness, strength, and softness.

Editors’ Comments: Owen Corning is sinking millions into retrofitting its plants to produce EcoTouch in an effort to reduce the environmental impact of its insulation, and it’s not charging customers a penny more for the new product. Hats off to OC!
