Glass wool, also known as fiber glass is made from a mixture of natural and recycled glass (recycled bottles, car windscreens and window panes) which is melted at 1,450 °C, and is then spun quickly to create fibers.
These fibers are then bound together to be used as insulation. The glass fibers create pockets of air which act as barriers to prevent heat loss, because air is a poor conductor of heat. Glass wool can be found in batts and rolls and also within insulation boards.
Electricity is a vital part of our everyday lives and powers everything we touch or do on many levels. Most of our electricity is generated from traditional fuels, such as coal, natural gas, hydro and nuclear. Renewable energy sources such as solar and wind have grown over the last few decades. What do all of these have in common? Industrial insulation.
HVAC systems are used in both commercial and residential buildings, from offices to factories, hotels to homes. They’re a big factor when it comes to the overall comfort of your home or building. Adding HVAC insulation can help improve that comfort and even lead to lower utility costs.
Glass wool Rolls are manufactured from stable glass fibers bonded with thermosetting resins. Rolls are noncombustible, moisture resistant, noncorrosive and mold resistant. Glass wool Rolls is designed for thermal & acoustic insulation of pipes, ducts and vessels. Rolls are quick and easy to install.
Glasswool boards are a type of insulation material made from recycled glass. They are used in construction to provide thermal and acoustic insulation. The characteristics of Glasswool boards include being lightweight, fire-resistant, and having good insulation properties.
