Glass wool, known in English as fiberglass, glass wool, rock wool and spun glass, is a type of insulation that is in the set of mineral insulation. This material has been used from the past to the present and is one of the oldest insulators. To make fiberglass, the glass is melted and then ground into fine fibers. The fibrous and fibrous structure of fiberglass traps air inside it and creates elasticity.
Features of fiberglass
Fiberglass is a good insulator against noise due to its fibrous structure. For this reason, this material can be used as sound and acoustic insulation in the building.
This insulation is available in the market with different densities or densities and the density of this insulation covers a range between 24 to 96 kg / cubic meter.
Glass wool can be covered with aluminum foil, fiberglass cloth or black glass fabric.
This thermal and acoustic insulation reduces energy consumption and prevents energy wastage by balancing the heating and cooling of the environment.
Fiberglass insulation has a high resistance to heat and is a kind of slow insulation that has no role in the spread of fire.
It does not produce toxic gases when exposed to fire.
The thermal tolerance of fiberglass, like other insulators, is up to a certain temperature and can withstand temperatures up to 550 ° C.
The temperature range for this insulation is from minus one hundred and ninety-five degrees Celsius to one hundred and twenty degrees Celsius.
Insulated fiberglass is very light and can be easily installed.
