R1.5 Bradford Polymax™ Polyester Thermal and Acoustic Wall InsulationBradford Polymax thermal insulation is designed to maximise comfort and lower energy bills. Bradford Polymax helps to reduce heat transfers through the walls, ceiling and floor or residential and commercial buildings and offices. In an uninsulated home, as much as 42% of your heat can be lost through the ceiling alone in winter, while in summer heat can flow into your home making it uncomfortably hot. All this results in higher energy bills from running your heating and cooling systems longer.

Polymax vs Glasswool InsulationPolymax is made from 100% polyester and is very different to other Bradford products such as the Gold Batts, Optimo Underfloor and Soundscreen which are made from fibreglass. A key difference between glasswool and polyester is that polyester insulation contains no breathable fibres and is soft and easy to handle. Unlike glasswool which is cut with a knife, polyester insulation is often torn to size. Polyester is the preferred solution for allergy sufferers, although it comes at a much higher cost. Polymax is more expensive to manufacture and bulkier to transport, especially to regional areas in Australia. Check out our delivery information page for the latest prices.
100% Reusable Polyester InsulationBradford Polymax is made from the same material as used in pillow and doonas, is low allergen and produces no VOC emissions. Polymax Insulation is 100% reusable making it a great environmental choice. The polyester fibres are made from up to 80% recycled content from post-consumer (PET) packaging such as empty drink bottles. No chemicals or resin binders are used in the manufacturing process.
