People spend about 90 % of their life in buildings. Maintaining a healthy indoor climate is therefore of the utmost importance. This is further accentuated by the need to make building envelopes air-tight in order to avoid thermal losses.

PU (PUR/PIR) insulation products have one of the lowest indoor air emission levels of all insulation products on the market today – be they organic, mineral or natural. Hence, in countries where levels for the emission of dangerous substances exist, PU insulation systematically achieves the best class and is therefore fully suitable for indoor use.

As PU does not provide breeding-ground or food for mould, bacteria or insects, no microbial volatile organic compounds are caused by these products.
