WHAT IS GLASS WOOL
Glass, a natural and green material, is produced from three different elements:
A GLAZING AGENT Silicon dioxide in the form of sand
A MELTING AGENT Sodium carbonate, which lowers the melting point of silicon dioxide
A STABILISHING AGENT Dolomite (calcium carbonate and magnesium), which increases glass durability.
In order to obtain fine fibers (for excellent thermal conductivity) and elastic fibers (so that the products can be subjected to high compressive and ensure the nominal thickness at the time of use) is required a special preparation of the vitrifiable composition: grinding of raw materials to achieve the required particle size, storage in silos, physico-chemical controls, perfect and homogeneous mixing.
The melting of the composition at 1400° C and the subsequent fiber process allow to obtain fibers of constant diameter and the absence of no fibered particles.
HOW IT WORKS
ACOUSTIC INSULATION The cell structure due to the weaiving of the fibers allows it to be isolated from airborne and clomping noise as well as to allow acoustic correction within the environments.
THERMAL INSULATION The weaving of small diameter fibres constitutes a multitude of cells where the air remains silent. The comparison of the performance of insulation materials must be done by verifying the coefficient of thermal conductivity. The lower the more the product is performing.
