Applications of Glass Wool Insulation

Jun. 11, 2022

Glass wool applications include structural insulation, duct insulation, filtration, and sound insulation. They are used in insulation products and applied in several areas of buildings. In addition, glass wool is the most common insulation material for residential roofs and has the following applications.


01. Cavity wall and drywall insulation

These were developed for insulation within steel-framed structures, wood-framed buildings, and drywall systems. It is manufactured with high-quality glass wool with glass wool fabric on one side for easy handling and increased rigidity.


Applications in drywall.

Steel frame construction

Wood frame construction

Drywall systems

Designed for use in hollow walls, but can be used effectively at the top of ceilings, at roof lines, or in brick wall cavities

Foil-Clad Glass Wool 

Foil-Clad Glass Wool

Applications of glass wool as an overwrap.

HVAC and air conditioning system insulation: Duct wrap is an insulation blanket specifically designed to wrap air conditioning ducts

Exterior wraps around metal air conditioning ducts: rectangular and circular heating, ventilation, and air conditioning systems


02. Duct insulation

Duct insulation for hot and cold ducts. This insulation is a 1-meter-long preformed rigid resin-bonded glass wool section. A single longitudinal slit allows the part to open to enclose the duct and close it after placement. Standard finish options are canvas, plain, and reinforced foil.


03. Purlin insulation in commercial buildings

A factory board is a rigid board made of non-combustible glass wool insulation. It is commonly used as a multi-purpose wall cladding as well as purlin roof insulation. It is available in 25, 40 or 50 mm thickness.


04. Suspended Ceilings

Ceiling tiles are made of non-combustible inorganic glass wool and are bonded with an inert thermosetting resin adhesive. Decorative vinyl finishes are available in coral colors for durability.

Applications of glass wool as suspended ceilings.

Suspended ceilings: domestic, commercial, industrial

The ceiling of commercial buildings such as cinemas, home theaters, recording studios, etc.

05. Industrial roofing insulation

This is made of high-quality non-combustible flexible material. Glass wool insulation with an inert binder makes the product light, safe and flexible. It faces one side with reinforcing foil or white metal foil. It can be applied to both sides upon request. In order to satisfy the special requirements of customers. Huamei group has developed various foil-clad products, solving the problem of damp-proof, sound-absorption, anti-corrosion, and fine appearance and processed into various foil-clad products, such as reinforced aluminum foil-clad product, perforated Aluminum foil-clad products.PVC foil-clad products in white and black fiberglass foil-clad blankets. The foil-clad increases the property of anti-broken .so as not to be destroyed and has high intensity of tensile, in addition; it also has a fine appearance and was easy to be installed.


06. Higher temperature insulation

Glass wool applications

It is made of non-combustible glass wool, which is bonded with an inert thermosetting resin to form a hard and flexible product. It is odorless, inert, and fully compatible with all standard building materials.


Glass wool as thermal and acoustic control.

A range of glass wool wools and blankets for thermal and acoustic control in commercial buildings.

Industrial insulation for applications up to 450°C.

Heat conservation and control in boilers, storage tanks, ductwork, ovens, etc.

Acoustic school is positive for compressor rooms and machine rooms.

07. High performance and sound insulation

Ceiling tiles are made of non-combustible inorganic glass wool and bonded with inert thermosetting resin adhesive. The floor is covered with black non-woven cellophane, which provides excellent sound absorption. It is used not only in commercial buildings such as cinemas, where excellent sound insulation is required but also in other areas where optimum sound absorption is needed. It is used as glass wool panels, which in turn translates into home theater insulation.


All in all, glass wool is an insulating material that has multiple applications in the home as part of roofing, false ceilings, drywall, home theaters, etc. It is widely used for its known benefits in terms of insulation, fire safety, and ease of installation. If you want to get more information about the best glass wool wholesale, welcome to contact us today or request a quote.
