Business lines

Explore our Insulation business line

Our Insulation business line is at the heart of the Recticel Group’s strategy. It develops high-performance insulation solutions for thermal and acoustic applications in the construction market. With more than 60 years of experience and a pioneering role in the insulation industry, Recticel Insulation has become a well-known and respected brand across Europe.

    Our competitiveness and future opportunities are supported by the fact that thermal insulation solutions in polyurethanes offer the highest-performing insulation materials. As such, and driven by ever-increasing insulation standards, polyurethane insulation as technology is gaining market share from more traditional materials.

    Recticel Insulation strives for a professional and reliable partnership, providing special care for its customers’ and clients’ day-to-day comfort.

    Our Insulation financials

    Insulation profitability increased in 2016, supported by higher volumes and excellent efficiency. These factors over-compensated for the negative impact of price erosion in some markets and a depreciated Pound Sterling.
