GETTING INTO MINERAL WOOL INSULATION

DISCOVER MINERAL WOOL INSULATION WITH HELP FROM THE EXPERTS AT IDI

Mineral wool is one of the fastest-growing products in the world of insulation. Mineral wool’s tremendous fire resistance, acoustical properties, recycled content, dimensional stability, and many other properties make it a favorite of architects and building owners.

Mineral wool has been in use for many years and is made by melting slag and/or volcanic rock and spinning it into fibrous insulation. The resulting product is then turned into batts or high-density boards. Like many products, recent advancements in technology make today’s mineral wool easier to install and much easier to handle.

WHY INSTALL MINERAL WOOL INSULATION

From firestopping to sound projects or continuous insulation, mineral wool dominates much of commercial construction. It is water repellent, vapor permeable, burn-proof, and thermal resistant. As continuous insulation, mineral wool allows buildings to dry out, makes them quieter, and contains or prevents fire from moving through areas where it’s installed. When you add in its insulative properties, it really is one of the most versatile products used in commercial construction.
