Mineral wool is one of the most often used heat-insulating materials.
Mineral wool is one of the most often used heat-insulating materials. It serves for warm and sound insulation and is made with different properties depending on the application purposes. This material can be used for heat-insulation of pipelines of various technical types, it is applied in industrial and civil engineering, in the car - and shipbuilding. It can be used in all climatic zones.
When using the mineral wool made in the form of cylinders it is convenient to use a glue layer to make fast installation in difficult conditions (for example, during the works at big height).
One more kind of mineral wool is wired mat.
One more kind of mineral wool is wired mat. Basalt fiber is its basis, and mineral wool is covered by a steel or galvanized grid and is stitched by a metal wire. Such material doesn't burn. Sometimes in addition such mats are laminated by aluminum foil.
Laminated mat consists of stone mineral wool, which has the increased durability in comparison with traditional. It is much less deformed in the course of installation. The glued seams and a covering in the form of a foil allow to use such mats as a vaporproof layer. When using such mats on cold pipelines it is possible not to set additional vapor barrier. If the mat has a special insertion from fiberglass roving, then it belongs to group of nonflammable materials. At the same time temperature of the isolated surface can be ranging from minus 180 ºC to plus 700 ºC.
Mineral wool is also made in rolls. Such cotton wool is made of superthin fiber, doesn't contain integumentary material and is stitched by threads. Temperature of use of such mineral cotton wool – from minus 60 °C to plus 400 °C
