Johns Manville: Formaldehyde-Free Insulation

At Johns Manville, we are committed to helping you create more comfortable, healthy, and energy efficient indoor environments. That’s why we revolutionized the building insulation industry by pioneering the development of Formaldehyde-free™ fibreglass building insulation over a decade ago. JM Formaldehyde-free insulation provides excellent thermal and acoustical performance and now utilizes an innovative bio-based binder, made mostly with rapidly renewable plant-based materials that offer improved handling, easier cutting, and less dust than our previous product. Because here at JM, we believe that in every detail, materials matter.


Johns Manville formaldehyde-free thermal and acoustical insulation for wood, engineered wood, and steel framing is made of long, resilient glass fibres bonded with our bio-based binder. A wide range of thermal resistance is available to provide thermal control for both vertical and horizontal applications.
