Sustainable choice 

Starlite® is an eco-friendly “green” product. The fibre is made from molten natural raw materials, including up to 80% post-consumer recycled material. Its production does not produce any blowing agents, it is CFC-free and does not affect the earth’s stratospheric ozone layer, ensuring it has zero ozone-depleting potential (ODP).  

The product also offers excellent performance-to-cost ratios.

It is one of the most affordable roof insulation materials in the relevant market segment.  

Quality assured 

Starlite® was the first faced fibre roof insulation material in South Africa to achieve an A1 (non-combustible) fire rating. This ensures absolute peace of mind for property owners and insurance underwriters that the building is fully compliant from a fire risk point of view.
