Nodulated Rockwool

Mineral wool is also known as rock wool, stone fiber, or mineral fiber. As its name suggests, it is a material created from stone fibers. It is made by spinning or drawing molten stone and slag (waste from the manufacture of steel) into a heap of thin pliable fibers, similar to the process of spinning cotton candy. It was first commercially produced in Germany and quickly became known for its insulation benefits.

Mineral wool is quickly gaining popularity as the go-to solution for commercial and residential insulation. It is highly flame retardant, and capable of withstanding temperatures up to  10000C. Mineral wool is easy to install, it is a sponge-like material that holds its shape. 

And finally, unlike other insulation options, mineral wool dries quickly and effectively, making it less susceptible to mold growth.

Service Temperature :  1000C to 10000C

Specification conformance :- ASTM C 612

APPLICATON

 

It has excellent performance characteristics, and offers distinctive advantages over traditional filler / reinforcing materials.
 
ADVANTAGES
  • High Temperature Stability

    The high thermal stability results in a stable friction co-efficient in a very broad temp range. Low thermal conduction restricts over-heating and prevents other constituents from degradation.

  • Crack Resistance

    Even dispersion of fiber within built bonding features with optional reinforcement properties reduces material wear and improves crack resistant.

  • Easy processing

    Unique properties & easy way of processing of Nodulated Rockwool gives formulators a high degree of freedom in formulating & processing brake material.

  • Consistency in composition

    Consistent Chemical Composition with high purity & optimal fiber length contributes for stable frictional properties in the product.
