ROCKWOOL insulation manufacturing process

ROCKWOOL have 45 different manufacturing facilities globally, using stone to create their insulating materials. According to ROCKWOOL, the earth creates 38000 times as much stone each year as is used to manufacture stone wool insulation.

ROCKWOOL manufacture their stone wool insulation by melting basalt and slag together, then spinning it to create fibres. This material is then made into insulation slabs or insulation rolls that can be used to insulate domestic, commercial and industrial buildings. 

ROCKWOOL insulation uses

ROCKWOOL have created a number of different insulation products for a wide range of uses throughout a building.

Firstly, the ROCKWOOL RW slabs have been manufactured for general building use, insulating the building to retain heat, reduce noise and add another barrier to fires. ROCKWOOL RW slabs come in variety of thicknesses, densities and can be semi-rigid or rigid. 

ROCKWOOL Rollbatt insulation has been manufactured specifically for use in loft spaces. The Rollbatt insulation from ROCKWOOL comes in rolls, and has been developed to specifically focus on thermal and acoustic insulating properties to reduce fuel consumption and energy bills. 

ROCKWOOL also offer products for pipe insulation. The insulated fire sleeve from ROCKWOOL has been developed to provide thermal insulation around hot pipes, but also offers up to two hours of fire resistance, and expands to fill any gaps between sleeves and piping if exposed to fire. Alternatively, opt for the intumescent pipe wrap from ROCKWOOL, a simple and cost-effective option to protect plastic pipework and electrical trunking in walls and floors, guaranteeing up to four hours of fire resistance. 

As well as insulation products, ROCKWOOL also produce a number of accessories, such as cavity closers. ROCKCLOSE is an insulated damp proof course that has been developed to reduce thermal bridging around doors and windows within cavity walls, to ensure that any heat retained by the cavity wall insulation is not lost around the doors and windows. 

Additionally, ROCKWOOL have a range of intumescent pillows. These are used to create temporary fire stops in large voids during construction, providing up to four hours of fire resistance. ROCKWOOL’s intumescent pillows can be used with metal pipework, electrical trunking and cable trays. 

Rockwool Thermal Conductivity

The thermal conductivity of a product or material denotes the rate at which heat will pass through it. Rockwool products are manufactured from stone wool, which consists of fine strands of mineral, packed together to form an insulation slab. These fine strands have tiny pockets of air trapped between the strands, which increase insulating properties, preventing hot air from entering in warm seasons, and retaining warm air in cooler climates. 

Each product’s thermal conductivity varies, depending on the product itself, the thickness and more.

For example, Rockwool Thermal Insulation Roll has a thermal conductivity of 0.044 W/mK, whilst Rockwool Flexi has a thermal conductivity ranging from 0.035 to 0.038 W/mK, and RW3 and RW5 have a thermal conductivity of 0.034 W/mK. The lower the thermal conductivity, the better insulating a product is. 

It is important to note that the product with the lowest thermal conductivity may not be the best insulating product for your project. Other factors may have an impact, such as whether it is produced in slabs or rolls, or if it is best suited to a specific application.
