Rising Demand for Energy-Efficient Insulation Driving the Mineral Wool Market

Mineral wool are the fibers which are made from the synthetic materials. Mineral wools are easy to install, safe, fireproof and use recycled material to manufacture. Mineral wool is made from industrial waste (slag), stone or molten glass by melting the raw material at a very high temperat

Mineral wool is an in-organic, non-metallic product manufactured from a carefully measured mix of raw materials. These raw materials mainly comprise of silica or stone, which are heated to a high temperature until they are melted. The molten stone or glass is then rolled and formed into a fibrous, flexible mat for further processing into the needed finished products.

The excellent acoustic, fire, and thermal properties of mineral wool originate from the mat of fibers. This mat of fiber forms the inert chemical composition of mineral wool by preventing the movement of air. Mineral wool is thus a very versatile material that can be manufactured to numerous different densities such as in different shapes, varied properties, and a variety of sheet materials.

Acoustic Strengths of Mineral Wool Insulation

Noise pollution or unwanted sound inhibits privacy, and increases agitation that can be bad for health. The range of noise can vary from being a distracting irritation to resulting into loss of hearing, which is actual physical damage. Be it home or workplace, there are millions of people in the world who suffer from the effects of exposure to noise above 65 decibels. Also, the treatment cost for health problems directly related to noise turns into many millions of dollars annually.

Due to the structure of mineral wool insulation, it provides a highly effective barrier to noise. The global mineral wool market has developed a wide range of mineral wool products that helps in better management of sound, including wall linings, acoustic ceiling tiles, roof/floor sound installation, partition cavity filings, and absorption solutions. These products are used in all kinds of settings from homes, public buildings, offices, and also in industrial facilities, laboratories, and hospitals.

Industrial Applications of Mineral Wool

There are a widespread variety of applications within the mineral wool industry from lagging pipes, enhancing air-conditioning systems, to high performance insulation products for shipping. The leading manufacturers are constantly initiating research and development activities to create products, which are tailored to environment and specific uses. For instance, technical insulation products have been developed to function in standard conditions even at 900°C - such as for power smoke flues, point boilers, and industrial piping. The benefits include improved safety for workers, reduced energy expenditure, and reduced condensation problems.

Mineral wool insulation is a key part of marine life. One of the most significant reason to insulate onboard is to save lives in case of fire. However, mineral wool’s outstanding acoustic and thermal insulating capacity is also essential in providing enjoyable environment for passengers and good working conditions for the staff. Although, the insulation work is challenging in a shipyard, and hence, a wide range of preformed and pre-covered insulation products are available, which deliver weight savings, cost, and labor.

Coming back on the land, the insulation of mineral wool is also used for air conditioning systems, ventilation, and heating in industrial as well as commercial buildings. Thus, the mineral wool can be used to keep the heating water hot and the cooling water cold to avoid condensation.
