CelluBOR; Natural Solution For Insulation

Investment Prize of the Year CelluBOR Insulation

What is CelluBOR Rockwool?

CelluBOR Rockwool is produced by melting minerals from volcanic rocks at very high temperatures and turning them into fibers. Stone wool provides heat, sound and fire insulation in the buildings where it is applied. Rockwool is obtained from volcanic rocks found in nature, which have superior properties than other stones in terms of minerals and chemical properties. It is a mostly preferred material due to its quality, durability and wide range of usage areas in insulation.

How is Rock Wool Produced?

Today, Stonewool is formed as a result of basalt stone, which is a volcanic rock, by melting it at 1350°C-1400°C and turning it into fiber. Basalt, which is turned into fiber, can be produced in the form of mattresses, plates, pipes by pressing in various sizes. Stone wool provides fire safety along with heat insulation, sound insulation and acoustic arrangement in the buildings where it is applied.

The very low thermal conductivity value of stone wool makes it a good thermal insulation material. The thermal conductivity value varies in the range of approximately 0.035 – 0.040 W/mK. The usage temperature is between -50/+650°C.

In addition to all these features, stone wool applications provide comfort in terms of sound insulation as well as thermal insulation. It increases the comfort of living or working in the building by absorbing the sounds coming from the outside or other floors.

What are its General Features and Advantages?

Rockwool, whose raw material is stone from nature, is naturally strong and durable. Stone wool preserves its shape and hardness thanks to its physical structure; It is not affected by temperature and humidity changes and shows dimensional stability. There is no change in its performance for many years and it performs the insulation function. Stonewool is a successful product in terms of thermal performance. The thermal properties that keep the heat outside in hot climates and inside in cold regions come from small air sacs trapped in the physical structure of rock wool.

What are the Usage Areas?

Thermal insulation: Since the thermal conductivity declared value of stone wool (10 0c) is lower than 0.035 ≤ λ ≤ 0.040 W/mK, it provides thermal insulation up to 90%.

Fire Insulation: Stonewool, usage temperature is between -50/+750°C. According to TS EN 13501-1, it is in the A1 class, which is non-combustible materials. Sound Insulation: Stone wool, which is one of the insulation materials that absorbs sound best, is used especially in acoustic arrangements. It provides sound insulation between 40-90% according to EN ISO standards.

Moisture and Moisture Insulation: Since stone wool does not corrode and rust, it is durable for many years, does not rot, mold or deteriorate. Water vapor diffusion resistance is µ=1, which is the same value as air.

What are the sizes of rock wool?

The standard sizes of rock wool are 1200mmx600mm. The thicknesses vary between 25mm-150mm depending on the request.

What are the densities of rock wool?

The densities of rock wool vary between 40kg/m3-150kg/m3 depending on the application areas like exterior walls, partition walls, vertical areas, industrial areas etc. You can ask the suitable density during purchase for your usage area.
