Insulation material is well known for its heat reduction function, maintain of  ideal temperature and sound isolation.

In today’s article, we are talking about the importance of choosing adequate insulation products.

Why To Chose Insulation Products ? 

Insulation Work

Insulation Work

To begin with, thermal insulation materials are applied to increase the heat conduction resistance of building. Beside thermal conductivity, insulation products enable to absorb sound and ensure silence in door. Therefore, we use them in the following areas:

  • Walls
  • Roofs
  • Floors of buildings

Characteristics Of Good Thermal Insulation Material

A good thermal insulation material is characterized by some important characteristics, namely:

  • Thermal conductivity
  • Waterproof and moisture resistance
  • Hygienic

Minimal Thermal Conductivity 

Firstly, a good thermal insulation should have minimum thermal conductivity coefficients. 

Water And Moisture Absorption

Secondly, it should be able to absorb water and moisture. 

Hygienic And Resistant

Thirdly, it shouldn’t be suitable for nesting of bacteria and pests. On top of that, insulation must not harm human health. Last but not least, it is important that it’s resistant to decay and last-long over time.

For instance, properly sized and mounted insulation can reduce energy in a well-insulated house. At the same time, it helps to keep warmer in winter and cooler in summer. Besides, it’s a good solution to save money with lower energy bills.

The Technology Of Glass Wool

Glass wool, also known as fibreglass, is made from glass fibres. Glass is heated to very high temperature until it melts then spun this melt to create fibres. Basically, these fibres provide heat insulation. Therefore, the glass fibres act as barriers to prevent heat loss. 

Properties Of Mineral Wool

Mineral wool is also known as rock wool or stone wool. Thus, it is made from a selection of raw materials like stone and glass. These raw materials are treated in a similar way to glass wool. Meaning that rock wool is made of rocks instead of being composed of fluffy glass fibers. Thus, they are melted at high temperatures and then they are spun to form fibres. This wool is then packaged up into batts, rolls or slabs. 

Installation Of Rock Wool In Appropriate Places 

Insulation Material Application

Insulation Material Application

Rock wool insulation can be installed wherever you need insulation. This includes:

  • Walls
  • Floors
  • Ceilings
  • Attics
  • Crawlspaces

However, it’s particularly well-suited for rooms along the cold side of the house. Also it is adequate for interior rooms which require sound isolation such as cinemas or music studios.
