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
- 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.
