Paroc Rock-wool 650 Insulation
PAROC Rock-wool 650 insulation is produced with similar principles; by melting and fiberizing volcanic stones; typically basalt, gabbro, anorthosite and dolomite at 1500°C. In the industrial production of stone wool insulation, we add a small amount of organic binder (2-4%) to stabilize the fibres. Air is trapped in tiny pores formed of stone wool fibres and creates a durable and non-combustible insulation with excellent thermal qualities. Immobile air trapped in the pores accounts for 95-99 percent of the insulation volume.
Stone wool insulation is nature’s own invention; harnessed for industrial use for more than 80 years. When the volcano erupts, the molten stone is fiberized by the wind on the slopes of the mountain. These thin fibres were the first form of stone wool.
The insulation must be continuous and free of breaks from the ceiling through the walls to ground level. Good thermal insulation and carefully completed insulation work will save heating costs throughout the life cycle of a building. During renovation the strength of the insulation should be checked and new insulation added if necessary.
Insulation solutions for buildings include non-combustible and energy-efficient products made from PAROC stone wool, for thermal, acoustic, and fire insulation. On these pages you will find all PAROC solutions for new construction and renovation projects, including Nearly Zero Energy Building (nZeb). Solutions include CAD drawings as well as detailed product information. The Additional insulation calculator will help you to find optimal solutions for small and terraced houses as well as apartment buildings. PAROC stone wool is a durable and fire-safe choice for all your insulation solutions.
