Scope of applications of foil-faced basalt wool products
Foil-faced basalt wool product is the perfect solution for the heat insulation of the building. It allows you to save money during the heating season, and what is more important, is incombustible. Foil-faced basalt wool is an excellent thermal insulation material that provides dual protection, prevents heat loss and facilitates the reflection of heat inside the building. This material is soundproof, resistant to decay processes, and provides vapor proofing and waterproofing. Moreover, it is environmentally friendly, durable and flexible.
This insulation material is able to reflect infrared radiation, thus it is cost effective. If you use foil-faced basalt wool products to insulate the roof, it will be cool in the warm season, and naturally warm in the cold season.
It is quite easy to install foil-faced basalt wool products. Shrinkage is not typical to it, so you should not be nervous about the air gaps emergence. The range of temperatures, when foil-faced basalt wool may be used, is quite large: between -200 and + 700 ° C. The building where this insulation material is used will not have any draughts, no radiation will penetrate there, and the indoor climate will be very comfortable.
Foil-faced basalt wool is applied in internal and external insulation of residential buildings, industrial or administrative facilities. As a rule, not only walls are handled, but also ceilings, floors, water supply systems, ventilation, air conditioning systems, refrigerators and various tanks. Experts advise to use foil-faced basalt wool products for insulation of balconies, attics, out-of-town buildings, greenhouses and nurseries. If you use this material for insulation of Russian bath or heating system, the foil, which has a “reflection effect”, will provide the best thermal result. Experts recommend to leave air gap (1,5cm – 2cm) in the process of installation of thermal insulation material that has “reflection effect”.
Another peculiarity is, that this material is installed in such a way that its parts overlap, joints are stuck together with duct tape, which has aluminum basis. So we get the perfect surface, which reflects heat and serves as vapor barrier.
