KFR Self-Cleaning Range Insulation

KFR Self-Cleaning Range Insulation

Knauf Insulation KFR Self-Cleaning Range Insulation is a natural brown color glass mineral wool blanket insulating material. KFR Insulation is designed to meet the design needs of range manufacturers. It is low smoke and odor alternative with a maximum service temperature of 1000°F.

ECOSE® Technology

ECOSE® Technology is a revolutionary binder chemistry that makes Knauf Insulation products even more sustainable than ever. It is based on rapidly renewable bio-based materials rather than petroleum chemicals. ECOSE® Technology reduces binder embodied energy and does not contain phenol, formaldehyde, acrylics or artificial colors.

Application

Knauf Insulation KFR Self-Cleaning Range Insulation is used in high temperature appliances such as self-cleaning ovens. It is suitable where thermal efficiency and/or user protection is required along with very low release of noxious fumes during heat up.

Features

  • Low thermal conductivity
  • Very low noxious/toxic gas release during heat up
  • Fire-resistant, non-corrosive, tough and resilient
  • Excellent acoustic insulating properties
  • Carbon Negative – Knauf Insulation products used for thermal insulating purposes recover the equivalent energy that it took to produce the product in a matter of hours in high temperature applications. Once installed, the product continues to save energy and reduce carbon generation as long as it is in place.
  • Responsible use of resources – Knauf Insulation products with ECOSE Technology contain three primary ingredients:
      1. A minimum of 50% post-consumer recycled bottle glass
      2. Sand, one of the world’s most abundant and renewable resources
      3. ECOSE Technology binder features bio-based materials and reduces binder embodied energy by up to 70%

    Glass Mineral Wool and Mold

    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.
