Energy saving and insulation materials. Mineral wool.

In our time, the issue of energy saving is more acute than ever. The traditional energy resources are rapidly depleting and becoming more expensive - oil, gas, coal, and the like. Active searches for alternative energy sources are underway, scientists are working on new technologies and ways of extracting and maximally efficient use of heat from already existing raw materials and new types of fuel.

High prices for electricity, gas, make each consumer specifically thinking about how to use heat most efficiently, how to minimize its losses in our homes, offices and in the workplace. Indeed, it is there that thermal energy is primarily intended to create comfortable conditions for our lives, work and rest.
Recently, a lot of technologies and materials have appeared in the construction, which allow to create buildings with very high thermal characteristics and significantly improve them in old, already erected buildings.

The most widespread and accessible ones today are foam, glass wool, plates and mineral wool. The latter are very often used for thermal and acoustic insulation of roofs, attics, partitions and walls of buildings, and also for insulation of pipelines of engineering networks, for example, ventilation and heat supply.

Mineral wool

It should be noted that mineral wool has the best thermal insulation characteristics compared with glass fiber and foam. It is made on the basis of thin fibers from the melt of rocks - basalt, diabase or porphyry, combined with synthetic binding formaldehyde origin. Vapor permeability of mineral wool is also higher than that of its competitors, which is very important in residential and industrial construction. In addition, this material has excellent soundproofing properties.

Products from mineral wool today are very popular for insulation of loggias, balconies, floors and attics. In particular, the great use for this purpose were mineral wool slabs, which are produced in a large assortment of density and size. With their help, the air layers of external protective fencing, window slopes are insulated. More often, mineral wool slabs are used for external insulation of walls under plaster and in ventilated facades.

The only serious disadvantage of this heater is the presence of formaldehyde-binding in its composition, although on the other hand, this harmful substance for our health in modern materials is present almost everywhere, from furniture to linoleum.
