Transformation through innovationOur History

  • 1954

    Knauf Performance Materials was founded as Knauf Perlite in 1954. Within a short time, the company made a name for itself as a specialist in natural building materials made of Perlite. Over the years, Knauf Perlite perfected its products, which are based on swellable volcanic rock. These products continue to form an ideal basis for any type of levelling and insulation filling, insulation materials, and aggregates for the industry.

  • 2012

    At the end of the 20th century, Knauf Perlite conquered entirely new markets with its Aquapanel® technology. These cement-bonded construction boards revolutionised the construction industry – and are still used around the world for interior, exterior, and floor applications. Changing its name from Knauf Perlite to Knauf Aquapanel in 2012, the company continued to uphold its tradition as an innovative solutions provider in the construction industry.
