Australian made with recycled materials

Watch our Executive General Manager Anthony Tannous on Sky News. Anthony speaks with Jon Dee from Smart Money on how our glasswool insulation is made.

Each year, by working closely with local recyclers, we use up to 30,000 tonnes of waste glass to manufacture our glasswool insulation. This process reduces landfill, reduces the demand on our natural resources, and requires less energy in the manufacturing process.

Our history

Bradford has been making insulation in Australia since 1934. Insulation was first made from recycled materials using waste slag from steel manufacturing. After being acquired in the 1950's by CSR limited, recycled glasswool insulation was introduced in the early 1970s. Read more.
