UP Twiga Fiberglass offers Glasswool Insulation. This is one of the most widely used forms of insulation world-wide because of its excellent thermal and acoustic insulation properties, light weight, high tensile strength and exceptional resilience. Glasswool is the most dominant type of insulation used in applications with service temperatures between -50°C to +250°C, with a world-wide market size of approximately US$ 7 billion. Glasswool insulation consists of fine, long, inorganic fibres bonded together by a high temperature binder. The fibres (each of approximately 6 to 7 micron diameter) are distributed in such a way as to trap millions of tiny pockets of air in the product, thereby creating its excellent thermal and acoustic insulation properties. The product is light gold in colour and its superior tensile strength and resilience makes the product ideal for applications in which there will be vibration, jolting or high compression. The light weight and handleability of glasswool also offers significant advantages during transport and installation. In addition, glasswool is chemically inert and has no impurities such as iron shots, sulphur and chloride. The product is non-corrosive to metal and does not support any mould growth. The use of glasswool for the thermal insulation of external walls and ceilings has been shown to reduce energy consumption by 20% to 30%. Glasswool is manufactured from widely available and renewable raw materials and provides environmental benefits in terms of resource saving and energy saving in every stage from pre-manufacturing to end-use.
