Pir vs mineral wool

Issue # 2: Nesting in Your Insulation. Sometimes rats and mice don't even bother carrying insulation away. If your insulation lets them crawl between the insulation and the floor boards, you've got the potential for trouble. This includes loose fitting solutions like packing strap, wire or nails. If a rodent can get in there, they'll.

Mineral wool. PIR board (e.g. Celotex) Based on the fact the insulation is being installed on a traditional solid wall property (with a u-value of 2.13W/m 2 K) - in order to achieve a final u-value of 0.3 Watts / m 2 K you need to use the following thicknesses. EPS - 88.6mm thick. Mineral Wool - 108.6mm thick. PIR board - 65.7mm thick. 2.5 lb/ft³ (40 kg/m³) density for Higher Temperature Applications. ISO-HT is Dyplast Products' 2.5 lb/ft³ polyisocyanurate rigid, closed cell, foam insulation for higher temperature applications up to 350°F (177°C), with intermittent exposure up to 375°F (190°C). ISO-HT is suitable for constant temperature or heat cycling environments.

Stone wool, also known as rock wool, is a type of mineral wool insulation produced from basalt stone fibers. It is one of the most common solutions for exposed mechanically fastened roofs, especially where very high fire resistance is required. ... Integrated facers on the boards prevent from direct contact between PVC and PIR foam. Sika.





Superglass insulation contains up to 84% recycled glass. Glass mineral wool has zero Ozone Depletion Potential and Global Warming Potential, i.e. it doesn’t harm the ozone layer. We’ve developed our manufacturing process to use less energy in production. We recycle our aqueous and fibre waste so it doesn’t go into the sewer or to landfill.

Mineral wool slabs absorbed 8 to 38 times more water than foil-faced polyisocyanurate (PIR) and 4 to 19 times more water than coated glass-faced PIR. Drying within vented benchtop assemblies required 2 to 6 days longer for mineral wool as compared to PIR.
