European Market for Thermal Insulation Products with Focus on Mineral Fibres

Dublin, March 18, 2024 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- The "European Market for Thermal Insulation Products - Mineral Fibre - 2023" report has been added to's offering.

This report examines the European market for thermal insulation products and their different uses in building and in industry, as well as identifying key trends impacting the industry. The report focuses on the mineral fibre segment.

Mineral fibre, or wool, is a non-metallic, inorganic material normally derived from glass or rock. Both glass wool and stone wool can be used in similar applications, except where high temperature resistance and fire protection are required. Stone wool can withstand temperatures up to 1,177oC, whereas glass wool can only be used up to 400oC.

Mineral fibres can be manufactured into a wide variety of physical forms and shapes and to a range of densities, depending upon the intended application. The most common forms are:

  • Rolls or blankets, typically for use in loft insulation
  • Laminated matting, for use in heating, water pipes, ventilation and air conditioning ducts, containers, cooling and tank systems
  • Rigid slabs for:
    • Flat and pitched mansard roofs, loft conversions, cavity walls and ceilings
    • Concrete floors
    • External wall dry ventilated cladding systems
    • Process plant - apparatus engineering, furnace construction and plant engineering
  • Fibre bonded to plasterboard for dry lining and semi-structural applications
  • Shells and moulded pipe sections for process plant and domestic cooking appliances
  • Sprayed, for asbestos encapsulation, or blown, for loft and wall insulation, in old or irregularly shaped buildings.
