When Wonderphyll was being developed at our plant in Elkhart, Indiana, there were two main goals in mind. The first goal was to provide a natural fiber based alternative to the commonly used fiberglass mat in office interior panel applications that has a ‘Class A’ fire rating. The second was to provide a green product that is as good or better in appearance and performance than the fiberglass mat alternative.
Why does the market need a natural fiber based alternative to fiberglass? Our process uses significantly less fossil fuel than the production of fiberglass. This is the main reason we consider Wonderphyll to be a green alternative to fiberglass. Some other reasons include the fact that nowhere in the process do we add formaldehyde. Also, our product has low VOC’s according to independent testing lab findings.
Wonderphyll is a sustainable product. It is a natural fiber composite made up of as much as %62 percent Rapidly Renewable Resource. The natural fiber used is an annually grown crop. Specifically we use bast fiber as our natural fiber. Depending on the blend ratio, we can produce a product with 30% post-consumer recycled content. Wonderphyll is recyclable at the end of life of the product.
