Rock Wool or Mineral Wool is a kind of hot insulation which basalt as an igneous rock is the main constituent
Firstly, basalt along with dolomite are melted at 1400-1500°C temperature and turned into silicates then melted material change to the fibers with special method and finally rock wool produced.
Rock Wool of Jahan Ayegh Pars Company is produced in different kinds such as blanket, pipe, panel, bulk, phono felt and can be used as a hot insulation for the temperatures up to 850 C in oil and gas refinery, petrochemical, powerhouse, building and construction and agricultural industries.
R-Value: The thermal resistance of insulation is measured by what’s commonly known as the R-value, and the higher the R-value, the better Mineral wool has a slightly higher R-value, ranging between 3.0 and 3.3 per inch.
Sustainability: Mineral wool is composed of 70 percent or more recycled content.
Sound: Mineral wool insulation has superior sound-deadening properties.
Water Resistance: Mineral wool insulation is hydrophobic, meaning it’s highly resistant to moisture and water. Since it doesn’t absorb moisture, mineral wool doesn’t promote rot, corrosion, fungi, mold, mildew or bacterial growth.
Installation: Mineral wool comes in dense, firm batts that are friction-fit into place; no stapling required. Use a serrated bread knife or woodcutting handsaw to cut mineral wool insulation. It’s recommended that you wear a dust mask when cutting and handling any type of insulation, including fiberglass and mineral wool.
Fire Resistance: Mineral wool is extremely fire resistant and can be used as a firestop.
