PRODUCT APPLICATION (INSTALLATION)

As the Knauf Insulation specialist for technical solutions we produce energetically and structurally optimised insulation products, solutions and systems for industry, HVAC and shipbuilding. Because of this, we can offer the right product for every application - with the best possible combination of energy efficiency, fire protection and noise reduction.

With our glass and rock mineral wool insulation materials you can reduce your energy costs by up to 95%.

Insulation of ventilation ducts

with Thermo-teK Boards.

Insulation of round equipment

with Power-teK Wired Mats.

Insulation of piping

with Thermo-teK Pipe Sections.

Fire protection for ventilation ducts

with Fire-teK Boards.

Our innovation:

THERMO-TEK LM AIR ALU (Lamella mats for perfect fit on air-handling ducts (circular & rectangular) and pipes).

Manufacture of Mineral Wool

The production of our mineral wool products which are made of glass and rock wool is very similiar: from melting of the raw material to the fiber structure of the insulation materials.

By centrifugal and by blowing process fibers are produced which are - while adding organic plastic resins - felted and formed into insulation products. In addition to the natural binder small amounts of mineral oil are added to bind the dust.

Production of Rock Mineral Wool

Raw materials for Rock Wool fibers

  • Spat, dolomite, basalt, diabas, anorthosite and recycled material
  • Koks
  • 0,5 – 7 % binder
  • approx. 0,5 % mineral oil

Production of Glass Mineral Wool

Raw materials Glass Wool fibers

  • Up to 70 % recycled glass
  • Sand
  • Limestone
  • Soda
  • 0,5 – 7 % binder
  • approx. 0,5 % mineral oil

Mineral Wool with ECOSE® Technology:

As the first mineral wool manufacturer in technical insulation, we are offering our whole product range with our natural binder ECOSE® Technology. ECOSE® Technology is the result of five years of intensive research and extensive testing, driven by our constant efforts to supply innovative products to our customers, which satisfy market demands and the requirement for sustainable materials. Unlike to conventional binding agents, ECOSE® Technology is primarily based on natural organic raw materials.

The excellent technical and fire performance characteristics of the naturally brownish colored insulation materials remain at constant high level.

On top the new product range grants benefits in handling and sustainability compared to mineral wool with standard phenol-formaldehyde binder.
