Eurima is the European Insulation Manufacturers Association and represents the interests of all major mineral wool insulation producers throughout Europe.
Eurima was established in 1959 to promote improved standards and regulations for the use of insulation materials. More recently, it has developed to reflect the growing environmental concerns of society.
Eurima members employ over 21,000 people across Europe with the installation of insulation products accounting for an estimated 300,000 man-years.
Mineral wool insulation products are used in residential and commercial buildings as well as industrial facilities. Glass and stone wool insulation secure a high level of comfort, low energy costs and minimised CO2 emissions. Mineral wool insulation prevents heat loss through roofs, walls, floors, pipes and boilers, reduces noise pollution and protects homes and industrial facilities from the risk of fire.
