Choos­ing the right in­su­la­tion ma­te­ri­als makes a big dif­fer­ence in terms of the safety and ease with which it can be in­stalled, as well as its per­for­mance. The glass wool used to man­u­fac­ture Pink Batts in­su­la­tion is a safe biosol­u­ble for­mu­la­tion that is not the same as fi­bre­glass or as­bestos. In the event any glass wool fi­bres are in­haled into the lungs they will dis­solve in the body flu­ids and be rapidly cleared from the body. It is clas­si­fied un­der the same cat­e­gory as caf­feine, tea and chlo­ri­nated drink­ing wa­ter by the In­ter­na­tional Agency for Re­search on Can­cer. And un­like poly­mer based prod­ucts, Pink Batts in­su­la­tion is made from in­ert glass wool and is non-com­bustible, mean­ing it won’t catch fire or melt eas­ily when ex­posed to a flame or faulty wiring. Longer-term is­sues like in­door air qual­ity should also not be over­looked. Pink Batts prod­ucts are cer­ti­fied to meet the in­de­pen­dent Fin­nish RTS M1 cer­ti­fi­ca­tion. This means they emit only min­i­mal lev­els of formalde­hyde and other VOCs (Volatile Or­ganic Com­pounds), and have been in­de­pen­dently tested as safe for use in build­ings. They have also been ac­cepted into the New Zealand Asthma Foun­da­tion’s Sen­si­tive Choice pro­gramme as safe to in­stall in the homes of those suf­fer­ing from asthma.
