Knauf Insulation has a proven track record as a leading European insulation supplier to world‘s largest domestic appliance producers. Our rock and glass mineral wool insulation products are used for insulating all types of ovens and contribute to higher appliance efficiency, sustainable environment and health protection

The experiences gained in last years of working with the biggest oven producers help us to adapt to the ever changing markets, trends and requirements, select and design the most optimal insulation for different types of the ovens, requests for higher energy efficiency and improved sustainability and to adjust our products to meet our customers' specific needs in a very short time.

 

With this in mind, and with the support of “Incentives for Research and Development Projects 2”, financed by the Republic of Slovenia and the European Union from the European Regional Development Fund, we recenty developed a brand new range of insulation felts, which bring the manufacturers (and end users) supreme performance, improved energy efficiency and lower energy consumption of kitchen ovens. Owing to the unique fibre bonding process, all newly developed felts do not contain organic binders or process aids and therefore comply with LGA test for contaminants, valid for mineral fibres in cookers and ovens. All felts are also tested for the presence of the restricted substances and comply to the RoHS directive and REACH regulation.

 

New solutions in our DAP (Domestic Appliances) portfolio:

Knauf Insulation DAP GNF products are made of long glass mineral wool fibres specially needled to form a compact, dimensionally-stable felt with high temperature stability and optimal thermal insulation properties. Usage: Insulation of classic or convection, electric or gas ovens that meet or exceed highest energy efficiency standards.

Knauf Insulation DAP HP products are made of long mineral wool fibres, specially heat treated to form a compact, dimensionally-stable felt with excellent horizontal fiber orientation. Felts without binder or needling deformations achieve the highest thermal resistance; heat treated surface at the same time prevents practically any release of dust. Usage: Insulation of pyrolytic, electric or gas ovens that meet or exceed highest energy efficiency standards.

Knauf insulation DAP HNF products are made of combination of long glass and rock mineral wool fibres specially needled to form a compact, dimensionally-stable felt with high temperature stability and exceptional thermal insulation properties. Usage: Due to its highest insulation performance standards, it can be used for insulating high-end self-cleaning pyrolytic ovens, where operating temperatures may reach as high as 700 ˚C and at the same time meet highest energy efficient standards.

With this new product range we support innovative product development in the white goods industry and help biggest kitchen oven producers in the manufacturing of energy class A ovens under the new Commission Regulation (EU) No. 66/2014.
