Create a quiet and airy space inside

What is Rockwool?

Rockwool is a material made from two types of rock ores: Dolomite and Basalt. Made by melting at high temperature in a furnace, up to 1600 degrees Celsius. Then using centrifugal force to spin into small fibers and then press them into sheets, rolls, and tubes. Rockwool is a material with very good heat and sound insulation properties, is environmentally friendly, and is widely used in construction projects today.

Structural characteristics of rockwoo l mineral wool

Color: rockwool fiber has a light and deep color tone, usually light yellow or yellow brown.

Structure: from short, small fibers, creating a tight, durable bond in the created rockwool block.

Density: rockwool pads are produced with high density, meaning the volume per cubic meter is from 40 – 180 kg/m3.

Withstand high pressure: due to the structural characteristics of the connecting fibers, rockwool blocks have a high level of pressure resistance but a less elastic surface.

Heat resistance: rockwool can withstand temperatures up to 750 ° C and the melting temperature is also very high, up to over 1000 ° C.

Great sound absorption ability due to the structure with many microscopic gaps between rockwool fiber links

Advantages and disadvantages of Rockwool ceiling insulation

Advantages of Rockwool mineral wool

Rockwool mineral wool has many outstanding advantages compared to other types of insulation materials, specifically:

Good heat and sound insulation ability: Mineral wool has a low thermal conductivity coefficient, only from 0.036 to 0.040 W/mK, helping to prevent heat transfer between inside and outside the building, providing effective heat insulation and heat resistance. good heat. Mineral wool also has effective soundproofing properties, helping to reduce noise from outside and inside the house.

Good fire resistance: Rockwool has high heat resistance, up to 1000 degrees Celsius, helping to protect buildings from fire.

Environmentally friendly: Mineral wool is produced from natural materials, does not contain toxic substances, is safe for users’ health and is environmentally friendly.

Disadvantages of rockwool

May cause skin irritation and rashes upon direct contact.

The small cotton fibers are quite sharp and can easily be rubbed into your hands.

Construction workers need to pay attention and use gloves and protective gear when installing and coming into contact with mineral wool.

Application of rockwool

Although not yet widely known and commonly used, with its special features and advantages, rockwool can be applied in many areas of modern construction and industry. The effectiveness of this material is not inferior to other materials but can even be superior. Rockwool mineral wool applications in practice are as follows:

In light construction such as townhouses, rockwool can be used to build walls, partitions, ceilings, etc. to help insulate, especially in the summer, making the indoor air cooler.

Building warehouses and workshops with rockwool reduces the risk of fire, explosion, and preserves materials and raw materials. Most useful for flammable and explosive materials.

Industrial applications: Pipe systems that require high heat resistance such as heat pipe systems, steam pipes, heating systems, air conditioners… can use this material.

With good soundproofing ability, rockwool is also used in places that need to prevent outside noise such as karaoke bars, bars, and dance halls.

Large projects that need materials that can withstand good pressure can use rockwool as the material, ensuring the stability and safety of the project.

Rockwool insulation construction process for ceilings

How to Apply Mineral Wool

How to install Rockwool ceiling insulation is quite simple, you can do it yourself at home by following these steps:

Prepare materials and tools:

Mineral wool thermal insulation

Keo dán Rockwool

Measuring and cutting mineral wool:

Measure the ceiling size and cut the cotton to the appropriate size.

You can use the cutter to cut cotton easily and accurately.

Sticking Rockwool to the ceiling:

Use specialized glue to paste.

You should apply cotton to close the circuit, leaving no gaps exposed to ensure effective heat and sound insulation.

Installing waterproof membrane:

Install a waterproof membrane on the surface of Rockwool to protect Rockwool from the effects of weather.

Installing the brace:

Install splints around the edge to fix the cotton and create aesthetics for the ceiling.

Notes when using Rockwool to insulate ceilings

Choose the type of mineral wool that suits your needs: You should choose the type of cotton with a thickness suitable for the ceiling area. Necessary level of heat and sound insulation. Pay attention to cotton that has high heat resistance and good fire resistance to ensure project safety.

Carry out construction with proper techniques: To ensure the best heat insulation, sound insulation and fire resistance. You need to seal the circuit with cotton, leaving no gaps exposed to avoid heat loss and noise. You also need to install a waterproof membrane to protect the cotton from the effects of the weather.

Regular cleaning and maintenance: To keep Rockwool durable and beautiful and maximize efficiency. Please clean and maintain periodically. You can clean it by using a vacuum cleaner to remove dust and dirt from the cotton surface.

Do not let Rockwool come into direct contact with water: Rockwool has good moisture resistance, but if exposed directly to water for a long time, it can cause mold, affecting the effectiveness of heat and sound insulation. .

Cotton should not come into contact with chemicals: Chemicals can damage the structure of cotton. Affects usage efficiency.

With outstanding advantages and simple construction. Rockwool is a great choice for insulating ceilings and structures.
