Wall and Ceiling Liner M
Knauf Insulation Wall and Ceiling Liner M with ECOSE® Technology is a brown flexible glass mineral wool blanket with a black mat facing adhered to one surface. It provides thermal and acoustical insulation while a smooth, tough surface resists damage during installation.ECOSE® Technology
ECOSE Technology is a revolutionary binder chemistry that enhances the sustainability of our products. The “binder” is the bond that holds our glass mineral wool product together and gives the product its shape and brown color. ECOSE Technology is a plant-based, sustainable chemistry that replaces the phenol/formaldehyde (PF) binder traditionally used in glass mineral wool products. Products using ECOSE technology are formaldehyde-free and have reduced global warming potential when compared to our products of the past.Application
Knauf Insulation Wall and Ceiling Liner M with ECOSE Technology is designed for use as an acoustical and visual barrier for walls and ceilings where a black surface is required. It is primarily used in theaters, sound studios, public concourses and other areas where acoustical treatment is needed. It is intended to be mechanically fastened to walls and can be covered with fabric or draping, or suspended above linear metal and metal pan ceiling systems to serve as both a visual and acoustical treatment.Sustainability
Knauf Insulation products used for thermal insulating purposes, recover the energy that it took to make them in just hours or days depending on the application. Once installed, the product continues to save energy and reduce carbon generation as long as it is in place (carbon negative).
Glass mineral wool with ECOSE Technology contains three primary ingredients:
- Over 50% recycled post-consumer glass content verified every 6 months by UL Environment
- Sand, one of the world’s most abundant resources
- Our green chemistry initiative ECOSE Technology, which reduces binder embodied energy by up to 70%
- It is anticipated to reduce its Global Warming Potential (GWP) by approximately 4%, a significant reduction in our carbon footprint
Surface Burning (UL Classified)
- Does not exceed 25 Flame Spread, 50 Smoke Developed when tested in accordance with ASTM E 84 and UL 723.
Indoor Air Quality Excellence
- Certified for indoor air quality as a low-emitting product by Underwriters Laboratories to the stringent GREENGUARD Gold standard.
Corrosiveness (ASTM C 665)
- Does not accelerate corrosion on steel, copper or aluminum.
Corrosion (ASTM C 1617)
Glass Mineral Wool and Mold
- The corrosion rate in mils/yr will not exceed that of the 1 ppm chloride solution.
Glass mineral wool insulation will not sustain mold growth. However, mold can grow on almost any material when it becomes wet and contaminated. Carefully inspect any insulation that has been exposed to water. If it shows any sign of mold it must be discarded. If the material is wet but shows no evidence of mold, it should be dried rapidly and thoroughly. If it shows signs of facing degradation from wetting, it should be replaced.Notes
The chemical and physical properties of the Knauf Insulation products Wall and Ceiling Liner M, Black Acoustical Board and Insulation Board Insulation with ECOSE Technology represent typical average values determined in accordance with accepted test methods. The data is subject to normal manufacturing variations. The data is supplied as a technical service and is subject to change without notice.
