Mineral wool is a general name for fiber materials that are formed by melting the raw material at high temperatures, creating a “lava”, and then spinning this into delicate fibers using centrifugal wheels. The applications of mineral wool include thermal insulation, soundproofing, filtration, soundproofing, and hydroponic growth medium.
The common types of Mineral Wool are Stonewool, Slagwool (both of which are often referred to as Rockwool, which is actually a brand in most countries) and Glass Mineral Wool (previously referred to a Fibreglass or Fiberglass). These products are manufactured in similar processes and have similar properties.
A revolutionary, new, formaldehyde-free binder technology, based on rapidly renewable materials instead of petro-based chemicals. It reduces embodied energy and delivers superior environmental sustainability.
ECOSE® Technology was developed for mineral wool insulation, but offers the same potential benefits to other products where resin-substitution would be an advantage, such as in wood based panels, abrasives and friction materials.
Manufactured from naturally occurring and/or recycled raw materials, and bonded using a bio-based technology free from formaldehyde, phenols, acrylics and with no artificial colours, bleach or dyes added
Reduces impact on environment through lower embodied energy
Reduces pollutant manufacturing emissions and workplace exposures
Improves the overall sustainability of buildings in which they are incorporated
High insulation efficiency for maximum thermal comfort
Non-combustibility for enhanced safety
Superb acoustic performance
Highly sustainable thanks to high recycled and/or renewable content, recyclable at end of life.
