EPiC database - Rockwool insulation

Robert Crawford, André Stephan & Fabian Prideaux
This material is part of the free Environmental Performance in Construction (EPiC) Database. The EPiC Database contains embodied environmental flow coefficients for 250+ construction materials using a comprehensive hybrid life cycle inventory approach.

Rockwool, also called mineral wool, is made by spinning or drawing molten rock materials into fibres. The resulting fibrous material has a very low density and low thermal conductivity (0.04 W/(m·K)).

Rockwool is produced by melting rock at 1 600°C and blowing air or...
