History

Established in 1962 (originally as ‘Eurisol’), the Mineral Wool Insulation Manufacturers Association (MIMA) provides an authoritative source of independent information and advice on rock and glass mineral wool. MIMA actively promotes the benefits of mineral wool insulation and the contribution it makes to the energy efficiency of buildings and the comfort of their occupants

Regulatory changes and the introduction of initiatives such as the Code for Sustainable Homes and CERT have all contributed to an unprecedented focus on insulation and its worth. MIMA therefore plays a valuable role in highlighting the abilities of mineral wool insulation to meet the increasing thermal, fire, acoustic and environmental performance requirements.

MIMA’s commitment to improving the built environment is demonstrated through the sponsorship of independent research (for example into the ‘as-built’ performance of buildings) and the development by its members of practical, robust and cost-effective mineral wool insulation solutions.

MIMA has a growing role in drawing together other trade bodies and institutions to work together in partnership on major industry projects.

MIMA also works to ensure that members play a full and positive role within the sector, advocating sustainable business practices, developing industry standards and promoting the application of best practice.
