Established in 1967 Autex is well known for its quality range of polyester products including insulation, carpets and sound solution materials. Autex also manufactures the Greenstuf range of polyester insulation.
Cocoon is 100% polyester. There are no added binding agents as the fibres are melted together making it a very strong, durable and long lasting material. The same type of material is used to manufacturer a wide range of products such as duvets, clothing etc.
About 50-60% of the polyester used is reconstituted from waste PET bottles making it an excellent environmental choice.
The product carries a 50 year warranty. It will not rot, slump, sag or be affected by moisture. The only reason polyester breaks down is if it exposed to long term sunlight which is very rear in a ceiling or underfloor!
