Knauf Insulation has filed a patent infringement action against CertainTeed Corporation today in the Federal District Court in Indiana. Knauf Insulation alleges that the manufacture, use and sale of certain CertainTeed Sustainable Insulation products infringe on Knauf Insulation’s patent rights.
Knauf Insulation’s ECOSE Technology is a sustainable binder technology based on rapidly renewable bio-based materials rather than petroleum-based chemicals commonly used in traditional fiberglass insulation products. It was launched after five years of intensive research and development and was recognized at the Global Insulation Conference and Exhibition in 2009 with the Global Insulation Product of the Year award.
The lawsuit seeks to stop the manufacture and sale of CertainTeed Sustainable Insulation in the United States and includes a claim for damages.
