SuperFOIL doesn’t leave ‘mushroom’ for improvement with recycled plastic insulation

We have worked closely with Texfelt to create a unique insulation product for mushroom polytunnels

Just as much as we value helping our clients to be more efficient with high quality insulation, we want to help the environment through recycling.

That’s why we’re so pleased with a new product we’ve developed with fabric manufacturer, Texfelt.

Our new Springbond insulation is helping one of the world’s leading mushroom producers create the perfect growing environment, and it’s made using recycled PET plastic bottles and other single use plastics.

The new product is now used inside polytunnels to create a warm, humid environment, providing optimum growing conditions and reducing the energy input.

It’s expected that 200,000 plastic bottles will be recycled this year alone to produce Springbond for these polytunnels.

As well as being made from recycled plastics, Springbond is fully recyclable at the end of its life and it contains no harmful VOCs (volatile organic compounds), meaning better air quality. As a result, the product offers maximum performance with minimal environmental impact.

William Bown, managing director of SuperFOIL, said:

“We’re very proud to have been involved in the production of this new SpringBond insulation product- mushrooms have a very unique growing system so it feels great to have been involved in creating a bespoke product that re-creates a natural habitat.

“We pride ourselves on creating environmentally-friendly products and SpringBond certainly fits this criteria- 200,000 plastic bottles recycled within the polytunnels this year alone is an extremely impressive figure!

“It’s great to work with another manufacturer which cares as much as we do about tackling the climate emergency, as well as providing clients with products tailored for a specific need and environment.”

Previously, SpringBond has been used in sofas and mattresses to provide comfort, as well as in carpet underlays and on film sets for sound-proofing.
