VALLEY FORGE, Pa. - CertainTeed Corp. is the exclusive U.S. distributor for Isover Ultimate high-performing mineral wool insulation. The partnership between CertainTeed and its sister company, Saint-Gobain Isover, provides the U.S. market with an insulation product for marine and commercial building applications. CertainTeed and Saint-Gobain Isover are subsidiaries of Saint-Gobain.

Ultimate combines the advantages of conventional insulation used for fire, thermal, and acoustic applications, but at substantially lower weights - up to 50 percent less when compared to conventional products - said the company. Its mineral wool has the same properties as Isover’s standard glass wool in terms of insulation, ease-of-use, environmental benefits, and value.

It can be used as fire, thermal, and acoustic insulation for roofs, walls, and partitions, floors, metallic panels, and other residential and industrial building insulating needs.

“This is an exciting venture for CertainTeed,” said Renee Chesler, general manager for CertainTeed’s Mechanical Insulation Division. “The innovative properties of Ultimate provide customers a smart way to cut down on energy consumption without compromising safety. This is good for the environment and good for the budget.”
