For our Mammoth Modern Insulation, we source the best polyester fibres and take recycled fibre from plastic bottles which would otherwise end up in landfill as waste and manufacture it into polyester insulation.
An optimal blend of fibres for each product is created from a mixture of highly technical fibres for extra performance, recycled fibres for sustainability, and bi-component fibres for bonding.
Mammoth polyester insulation creates warmer, healthier homes and buildings. Made by NZ's first and only Toitū net carbonzero certified insulation manufacturing company, everything from packaging to product is recyclable at the end of its life.
Mammoth's thermal and acoustic insulation is made from 100% polyester and uses up to 15,600 recycled plastic bottles per 100 sqm*.
Most of our Mammoth products are Environmental Choice NZ certified, with 60% of the raw material used being made from fibre manufactured out of recycled PET bottles.
Our commitment to sustainability is paramount to us and incorporated in the way we operate the business, our manufacturing processes and the way we help our customers create warmer, healthier, more energy efficient environments - all while protecting the largest environment of all, our planet.
As a zero waste manufacturer:
Our 3 New Zealand manufacturing plants produce a range of products - our softer blanket form, rigid friction fit segments and acoustic panels.
Our Airlay sections are manufactured with technology where the fibres are blended together, and then under air pressure, there is a transfer process that blows all of the fibre into a randomised composition rather than a layered effect (as the carded product would deliver). This provides structural properties of the product which enable it to be friction fitted within a cavity by simply squeezing it in place. This friction fit enables a smooth, seamless installation which maximises thermal performance. So confident about it's performance, we had it independently tested. Click here to view the full report.
Our blanket products are made when the fibres are blended, carded and formed into a web which is then layered to create a loft (blanket) of fibres. This is then heated and compressed to the required weight and performance of our product range(s). When we heat the product it is passed through an oven where hot air is circulated and activates a thermo bonding process. This melts the outside sheath of the bi-component fibre which then bonds the fibres together. Compression inside the oven controls the product density and thickness, which is then cooled. The product is then cut to specification, weighed, vacuum packed and labelled.
We offer a Takeback Scheme for all products across the country to reduce waste.
Our insulation product is completely recyclable - the product must be uncontaminated and returned to our branch for recycling. The manufacture of our product is already zero waste but we extend this service to our customers.
We take clean offcuts back from the market and recycle them back into product. We process the product by feeding it through a purpose built reclaiming line where it reopens it back into a fibre form. We reuse this product as post-consumer recycled fibre.
Our Takeback Scheme process includes:
