Glasswool (Fiberglass Insulation)


Glasswool


BONDED FIBRE GLASS WOOL             CONFIRMS TO IS 8183

Made from bonded glass fibres. For thermal and acoustic insulation, available with or without AI.foil. Idea for under deck Insulation, over the false ceiling and for Ducting.
Size: Rolls in standard width of 1.2 m 
Density: 16, 24, 32 & 48Kg/m3 
Thickness : 25, 50mm  Aslo R.P.Tissue and Rigid Boards etc.,

Glass wool Insulation is one of the most widely used forms of insulations world-wide because of its thermal and acoustic properties, light weight, high tensile strength and exceptional resilience. Glass wool is one of the most dominant types of insulations preferred in applications with service temperatures ranging upto 250C. 

Glass wool consist of fine, long, inorganic fibers bonded together by high temperature binder. These fibers (each of approx. 6 - 7 microns diameter) are distributed to trap millions of tiny pockets of air in it thereby creating it an excellent thermal and acoustic insulation. The light weight of Glass wool also offers significant advantages during transport and installation. In addition, Glass wool is chemically inert and has no impurities such as iron shots, sulphur and chloride. The product is non corrosive to metal and does not support mold grow. It is manufactured from renewable raw materials and is environmental friendly in every stage. 

Glass wool is formed into products with various thickness and densities. It comes in the form of rolls and slabs with or without Aluminum foil Paper. 

Types of facings: Aluminum Foil, Black Glass Tissue, Glass Cloth.

Product Range: Density 12 Kg/Cubic m to 100 Kg/Cubic m and thickness 12mm to 100mm

Temperature Range: Glass wool is suitable for applications ranging from minus 195 degree Celsius to plus 230 degree Celsius. For special applications up to 450 degree. Aluminum foil facing is suitable up to 120 degree Celsius.

Chemical Stability: Glass wool is chemically inert. Application does not cause or accelerate corrosion. Glass wool is rot proof and odorless.

Fire Safety: Glass wool is non-combustible in accordance with BS 476 incombustible, extremely low spread of flame, non emission of dense smoke and toxic gases, on depletion of oxygen (high oxygen index 70%).

Biological: Glass wool is inorganic. Does not encourage growth of fungi and vermin.

Dimensional: Glass wool is stable under varying conditions of temperature and humidity when applied correctly. Excellent tear strength and not prone to sagging or settling. Rigid slabs have inherently high compression resistance.

Vibration and Jolting Resistance: Conforms to BS 2972.

Moisture Content: Less than 2% in accordance with BS 2972.

Water Absorption: Less than 2% in accordance with BS 2972.

Shot Content: Nil in accordance with BS 2972.

Odorless: Conforms to BS 2972.

No Mould Growth: Conforms to BS 2972.

Recovery after Compression: More than 95% in accordance BS 3958
