sale in the form of pellets, slabs or blocks.It features high resistance to external influences, long life.

Technical parameters of foam glass

Through the use of non-toxic raw materials ready material is environmentally friendly, can be used for thermal insulation of all buildings.Boards of foam glass can have different sizes, select for insulation, according to the characteristics of the protected area and the building.The most important technical characteristics of raw materials and blanks are:

  • water absorption: 0-5%;
  • density: 110-200 kg / m.cube;
  • strength on compression ratio: 0.7 MPa;
  • flexural strength: 0.5 MPa;
  • conductivity: 0.04-0.07 W / (m • K);
  • operating temperature: from -260 to 430 degr
  • flammability: NY (off);
  • vapor permeability: 0-0,005 mg / (m · h · Pa);
  • maximum noise reduction: about 54 dB;
  • chemical resistance: the maximum (not exposed to chemicals, solvents);
  • biological stability: maximum (not subject to damage by insects, rodents, fungal formations);

These properties are achieved through the use in the production of unique components.In addition, foam glass has a very low moisture sorption, was only 0.2-0.5%.Minimum percentage indicates low moisture absorption from the air.Therefore, the material can be used in all regions and at all locations: regardless of the weather and temperature characteristics of the site.The use of foamed glass

high durability and resistance to aggressive environments, high humidity allow for insulation using foam glass residential, industrial and commercial buildings.Selected boards and blocks of foam glass according to the requirements for the protection of the walls.Materials with large thickness can prevent heat loss and maintain an increased temperature regime created in the building.Ideal for wooden buildings (do not lead to rotting wood).

For detailed pictures of cellular glass insulation can see how to use the raw materials: walls, plinths, basements and premises, roofs (from the loft or attic).

granular building material commonly used for the protection of flat roofs.It is used together with bitumen and cement mixtures and vapor and damp-proofing materials.Grain composition of raw materials selected on the specifics of the design and shape of the roof.

Advantages Important advantages of the material include a long term preservation, minimal moisture and paropogloschenie.It can be used for insulation of buildings of any type.Other advantages include the use of raw materials is:

  • ease of selection, availability of different types of blocks and slabs;
  • resistance to damage;
  • well tolerated minor physical exertion;
  • efficiency of building material (copes with delay task of heat);
  • does not lead to a slow destruction of the wall or the formation of mold on them.

Disadvantages The main disadvantage of the high cost of raw materials is considered, as reported by customer reviews.Available material is not every customer.Another drawback is the difficulty of mounting.Fastening foam glass wall is produced by means of specialized adhesives.In a direct impact with the cement (during a subsequent finishing) it can be damaged due to heavy load.Before working on the cellular glass insulation should be a detailed examination of a video on the specifics of the use of raw materials.The optimal solution would be the order of service professionals or prior consultation with a specialist.
