A series of fire protection tests confirm the positive properties in the case of Isocell cellulose burning. Comparative tests show: "Non-combustible" does not actually mean "better in case of fire"! The classified superstructures of REI30 to REI 90 give security in planning.
With the EN classification B-s2,d0, Isocell cellulose achieves the best possible assessment for combustible construction materials. It has been shown in an investigation by IBS Linz * that, with a 30-cm thick cellulose layer, the underlying construction component remains protected from heat for 90 minutes.

A newspaper needs much less energy to become insulation than other raw materials. As such, it is part of a fascinating, natural cycle that produces a new, independent product with every metamorphosis.
In comparison to other insulation material, primary energy use is significantly less. It amounts to only 30% of glass wool and only 15% of polystyrene (styrofoam). Isocell cellulose insulation reduces CO2 emissions over decades and saves heating costs. And the best: while many building materials become a disposal problem, Isocell cellulose blooms again as it can be processed into plant fertiliser!
Carbonization (pyrolysis) produces a soil nutrient, which the Indians in the Amazon region already understood 7000 years ago.
This plant fertiliser is applied with the manure and, according to the latest findings, reduces the unpleasant smell by up to 75%! And at some point a tree grows again and the cycle closes.
Sound becomes noise when it disturbs. Isocell cellulose keeps the noise outside (or inside).
Isocell cellulose achieves up to 7 dB for dividing walls and up to 5 dB better sound insulation values for dividing ceilings than found with conventional fibre mats.
Due alone to the fact that cavities are filled without gaps, a better sound insulation level than in the case of mat-form insulation is to be assumed. Incidentally, this was confirmed by TGM Vienna with a comparative test. (Test No. VA AB 11961)
Cellulose is blown in, not packed. No material drag, no waste. One and the same product for floor, wall and ceiling and for any insulation thickness. This not only saves time and money but also ensures a better quality result when insulating.
The installation specialist comes with his truck to the construction site and brings everything he needs: blowing machine and cellulose fibres.
The builder, carpenter or drywall constructor has already prepared everything for him. The blowing machine remains on the truck and is filled there with cellulose. The specialist brings the blowing hose to the desired position and work starts. The machine is operated in the truck via radio control. The cellulose fibres are matted in the construction to form a jointless insulation mat. Whether it is floor, ceiling or wall - it is always one and the same product.
