Inorganic mineral materials for insulation in buildings *

R. Gellert,     FIW München, Germany

Abstract:

Insulating products made from natural and/or synthetic mineral raw materials dominate the insulation market in Europe. Owing to their overall cost/performance ratio or their special product properties, mineral wool products for building insulation have gained the largest market share. Products such as mineral wool, cellular glass and expanded perlite are specified by harmonized European standards, while the niche-type products have either a manufacturer-specific European or national technical approval to prove to the consumer the fulfilment of regulatory requirements for the particular application.
