About Mineral Wool

Mineral wool insulation is unique and highly versatile product. Its exceptional thermal properties contribute hugely to European efforts to save energy and combat climate change. Additionally, the structure of mineral wool - a mat of fibres which prevents the movement of air – coupled with its long-term stability, gives it an unique ability to combat noise pollution and promote safety by reducing the risk of fire.

Mineral wool insulation is made from molten glass, stone or slag (industrial waste) that is spun into a fibre-like structure and which creates a combination of properties that no other insulation material can match. There are two types of mineral wool product: glass wool insulation and stone wool insulation.

Inorganic rock or slag are the main components (typically 98%) of stone wool. The remaining 2% organic content is generally a thermosetting resin binder (an adhesive) and a little oil. Glass wool products usually contain 95% to 96% inorganic material.

Stone wool is made from volcanic rock, typically basalt or dolomite, an increasing proportion of which is recycled material in the form of briquettes. Mineral wool made from blast furnace slag (waste) is sometimes known as slag wool.

Glass wool is made from sand or recycled glass, limestone and soda ash; the same ingredients as for familiar glass objects such as window panes or glass bottles.

Mineral wool is a high-quality insulation product for many reasons. From its responsible use of locally-sourced renewable natural resources, to its environmentally sound production process through to its diverse range of applications, mineral wool insulation is a reliable and cost-effective product. As Europe seeks to upgrade the sustainability of its building stock, mineral wool insulation is key to the creation of very low energy buildings.

Mineral Wool Applications.

Mineral wool insulation is used in a wide range of settings that harness its remarkable thermal, acoustic and fire protection properties. Mineral wool insulates new and existing buildings of all types – be they residential, commercial or public. And a wide variety of mineral wool applications have been developed to meet the specific needs of industry.

Substantial cost savings result from investing in insulation. Common energy efficient household applications include the insulation of lofts, cavity walls, internal and external walls, flat roofs and heating systems. Common industrial applications include: large diameter pipe insulation; insulation of tanks and vessels; insulation for boilers and turbines; and critical marine and offshore installations including fire and acoustic insulation in ships and oil rigs.

Keeping heat out and maintaining low temperatures is just as vital a performance requirement as heat retention. Many industrial processes can only be carried out in controlled cold environments and generating such low temperatures is even more costly than producing heat. Insulation is used to reduce energy demand by providing a very effective thermal barrier.

Insulating air-conditioned office and commercial environments is increasingly valued within Europe. The demand for thermal insulation which maintains low temperatures has been perhaps the single most important driving force behind the continuing innovation of mineral wool products. Building materials using glass and stone wool insulation consistently prove to be the most cost-effective solution.
