1) Acousticval performance
Nuvola multifuction Rock wool products are specified for high acoustical performance. They are available in various densities to support different applications. It in particular has exceptional energy absorbing characteristics and is effective at reducing sound transmission across a wide range of frequencies.
2) Thermal Intergrity
Stone wool is naturally denser than fiberglass, and will maintain its dimensional integrity under all conditions. It will not slump, shrink, expand with temperature fluctuations or compress under light loads as competitive insulations are prone to do
3) Moisture Control
Moisture can cause a number of structural and/or aesthetic problems within commercial buildings. As an integral part of any building design, proper ventilation is necessary to allow any built-up condensation to drain out of the system. Nuvola multifuction Rock wool products is water repellent, helping to deflect moisture away from the surface, alleviating potential issues.
4) Water Repellent
Our stone wool insulation is water repellent, helping to deflect moisture away from the surface, alleviating potential issues.
5) Nuvola stone woll board is inorganic, and will not rot, corrode, or promote fungi or bacteria growth, which means the potential for related environmental health issues is also mitigated as a result.
Rock Wool is made from basalt, an inorganic raw material. It is produced through heating basalt at 1350˚C - 1400˚C and transforming it into fibers, which are bonded together using a thermosetting resin.
It is light and easy to install, mainly used for thermal and acoustic insulation where high compressive strength is required such as over-deck, floors, sandwich panels, and dry wall partitions.
Water repellent yet vapor permeable: Stone wool is water repellent yet vapor permeable. Roxul insulation does not absorb water or hold moisture. Its unique stone wool orientation is ideal for repelling and draining water away from the exterior walls, industrial pipe, interior walls, or whatever Roxul insulation is protecting. And, since Roxul insulation does not absorb water, it will not sag or lose its shape, and will retain its R-value. So the R-value installed today, will be the same for years to come.
Completely resistant to mold, mildew, rot and bacterial growth.
Its non-directional fiber structure and higher density give it better dimensional stability--it won't sag inside walls.
Easy to Cut and Install for Optimal Fit: allows you to accurately trim the insulation to the wall or ceiling cavity--and get an optimal fit around electrical boxes, wiring, plumbing and ductwork. The result is better R-value and maximum sound absorption.
Fire Resistant: Its unique composition won't burn or release toxic gases or smoke when exposed to high heat. Roxul offers a barrier that can delay the spread of fire and provide your family with precious extra minutes to escape. And it can withstand temperatures of up to 2150°F (1177°C)--well above heat levels of typical house fires.
