Rockwool insulation is an excellent alternative to traditional fiberglass batts, made from semi rigid stone wool material, more dense than fiberglass batts and exhibiting superior sound proofing and fire resistant properties.
ROCKWOOL insulation is a rock-based mineral fiber insulation comprised of Basalt rock and Recycled Slag. Basalt is a volcanic rock (abundant in the earth), and slag is a by-product of the steel and copper industry. The minerals are melted and spun into fibers.
Because the main component is stone, Rockwool batts are not adversely affected by moisture in the way that fiberglass insulation can be. Poorly installed fiberglass insulation can become damp, discolor, compress significantly reducing the effective R-value. Rockwool Batts are water repellent and maintains it’s R-value after water exposure and doesn’t promote mold or fungal growth promoting a safer home environment.
Your choice of Rockwool batts may vary according to the particular room you are looking to insulate and the problem you are looking to solve, but typically Rockwool batts is chosen over fiberglass batts where superior fire rating and/or sound dampening is important i.e between floors, demising walls, around bathrooms, laundry and mechanical rooms.
