Polyester Insulation - Safer, Stronger & More Versatile....


Polyester insulation is a safe, non toxic, itch free bulk insulation product. Because of its non-hazardous properties, polyester is used extensively in the medical, food, apparel, bedding, carpet & furniture industries, as well as the building and insulation industries.

Light-weight, yet with very high tensile strength, polyester fibres are durable and resistant to most chemicals, stretching, shrinking & mildew. This makes them very long lasting, which means we can guarantee its performance for the lifetime of your home.

Being naturally hydrophobic & quick drying means polyester insulation repels water and is largely unaffected by moisture.

For these reasons Polyester is an ideal material for manufacturing insulation from. Therefore, Higgins have created an exclusive range of thermal and acoustic polyester insulation products that take advantage of these qualities, and are designed to provide superior, longer lasting performance in your home.

More Reasons to Buy Higgins Polyester Insulation…

Environmentally Responsible…

Polyester insulation is also easily recyclable time & time again! Plus, as the process of recycling polyester does not require large amounts of heat compared to many other products, the net energy saving associated with recycled polyester insulation has a significant positive impact on our planet.  Higgins polyester products contain up to 85% recycled polyester fibres from drink bottles and other recycled plastics, which also makes a significant saving on land fill.

Non Allergenic & Asthma Friendly Polyester Insulation…

The polyester fibres used in Higgins polyester insulation products have Non Allergenic properties and are safe for Asthma sufferers. Higgins polyester insulation products do not contain binders that may deteriorate and crumble over time, or use short or brittle fibres that are prone to breakage and easily breathed in.

Therefore Higgins polyester insulation products do not have the potential to create dust due to fibres or other detritus working their way down through lighting and air conditioning vents in the ceiling.

Polyester insulation is one of the types of fibrous insulation recommended by Asthma Foundations Australia for use in low allergen or asthma friendly buildings.

Referencing the US EPI list of Ozone Depleting Substances (classes 1 & 2), Higgins Insulation have conducted an audit of manufacturing processes and ascertained that no substances with Ozone Depleting Potential (ODP) are involved in the Higgins Polyester insulation manufacturing process or, as can reasonably be ascertained, within the manufacturing and composition of the raw materials used.

Higgins polyester products have  Zero Ozone Depleting Potential (ODP).

Zero Formaldehyde and low VOCs…

The manufacturing process for Polyester products at Higgins Insulation does not require the use of any solvents, resins or binders. Therefore there is no residual formaldehyde or other Volatile Organic Compounds (VOCs) added to the raw materials during the manufacturing process.

With polyester itself being a non VOC, the VOC content of Higgins Polyester insulation products is therefore expected to be negligible.

The polyester insulation products made by Higgins Insulation do not contain any raw material with chloride compounds, nor are chloride compounds used in the insulation manufacturing process. There are also no other corrosive chemicals used at any stage of the manufacture of the insulation or the raw materials.
