Insulation are most commonly used for thermal management, fire reduction, sound reduction, impact minimization, and heat transfer for various type of structure.
Stone wool that is widely used as insulation for buildings goes by the brand name “rockwool insulation.” In order to create rockwool, certain minerals must first be heated to their melting point and spun until they freeze into tiny threads.
Stone wool or rock wool insulation are further names for rockwool.
Rockwool insulation has a number of benefits, including outstanding performance in terms of noise and heat insulation. It is also highly resilient to things like fire, mold, and mildew.
Rockwool’s only drawbacks are that it cannot be biodegraded and that it may cost a little more than other, comparable insulating materials like fiberglass and cellulose.
Several different mineral kinds can be used to make rockwool. The same minerals that are present in lava after a volcanic eruption are typically used to make rockwool. This lava rock is heated until it is molten in order to create rockwool. The molten rock is subsequently spun until it resembles thin, long strands. Manufacturing rockwool takes considerably higher temperatures than sugar since rocks have a much higher melting point than sugar, but the process is actually pretty similar to making cotton candy.
