Glass wool Insulation is one of the most widely used forms of insulatino world-wide because of its thermal and acoustic insulation properties, light weight, hogh tensile strength and exceptional resilience. Glass wool is the most dominant type of insulation used in applications with service temperatures between -50oC to +250oC, with a world-wide market size of approx. US $7 billion.
Glass wool consist of fine, long, inorganic fibers bonded together by high temperature binder. Ther fibers (each of approx. 6 - 7 microns diameter) are distributed in such a way as to trap millions of tiny pockets of air in the product, thereby creating its excellent thermal and acoustic insulation properties. the product is light gold in colour and its superior tensile strength and resilience makes the product ideal for applications in which there will be vibration, jolting or high compression. The light weight and handleability of Glass wool also offers significant advantages during transport and installation. In addition, Glass wool is chemically inert and has no impurities such as iron shots, sulphur and chloride. The product is non corrosive to metal and does not support mold grow.
The use of Glass wool for the thermal insulation of external walls and ceiling has been shown to reduce energy consumption by 20% to 30%. Glass wool is manufactured from widely available and renewable raw materials and provides environmental benefits in terms of resource saving and energy saving in every stage from pre-manufacturing to end use. The Glass wool is formed into products with various thickness and densities.
