Johns Manville has replaced its formaldehyde-based binder with an acrylic binder, which has eliminated concerns about formaldehyde where it is installed and in the factories where it is made.
In addition, the company says that its insulation is made with an average of at least 25% less recycled content, which reduces the amount of materials in the nation’s landfills by 90,000 tons a year.
Johns Manville cites research showing that 79% of home owners are willing to pay a premium for household products that reduce their concerns about indoor air quality.
The new line of insulation was recently named a Most Valuable Product in Building Products magazine; was included in BuildingGreen’s “Top 10 New Green Building Products;” was named an Architectural Record editor’s pick and an editors’ choice in ProSales magazine; and won an ACE award, sponsored by Architecture magazine.
