Glass wool description and application
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.
