About mineral wool
Thermafiber creates mineral wool from rock and blast furnace slag, a byproduct of the steel industry. We melt the raw materials in a furnace at temperatures above 2,600˚ F and spin them into fibers. We then package the fibers loose (granulated) or form them into insulating blankets or boards.
Thermafiber has aligned with several manufacturers/distributors, including CertainTeed Corp., a partnership that enables customers to receive CertainTeed glass fiber products and Thermafiber mineral wool products on the same truck.
At Thermafiber, we will continue to excel as The Name in Mineral Wool® by providing customer-focused solutions using our products and services to meet and surpass customers’ needs.
