  14. 14. Monday Nov 15, fire in Shanghai, China kills 58 people. The fire may have been caused by the accidental ignition of polyurethane foam insulation used on the buildings outer walls. -Shanghai Daily Local Authorities said two apartments next to the destroyed building would be renovated as well, and the foam cladding on the exteriors would be replaced in favor of fire resistant materials. -China Daily

  20. 20. Why Specify Stone Wool?3. Sound Resistance STC1 ratings on over 15 commercial wall assemblies This example is 51 (RAL-TL96-269) ½” gypsum board, 3 5/8” steel studs 24” center, 3” AFB 1. Sound Transmission Class – tested to ASTM E413, E90
  21. 21. Why Specify Stone Wool?3. Sound Resistance STC ratings are poor indicators of sound resistance at frequencies which are of most concern (below 125 Hz) Sources of low frequency sound include speech, audio/video, ventilation equipment, airplanes
  22. 22. Why Specify Stone Wool?3. Sound Resistance Low frequency noise is best tested using the “Coefficients at Frequencies” method Stone Wool provides more low frequency absorption than glass fiber when tested to both normal and random incidents of noise Insulation Batt Thickness Avg. 1/3 Octave Band Center Frequency (Hz) (inches) 63 80 100 125 160 200 250 Glass Fiber 3.5 .15 .18 .20 .24 .30 .40 .50 Stone Wool 3.0 .18 .23 .29 .34 .41 .51 .64 HGC Engineering Compared Acoustical Testing At Low Frequencies
  23. 23. Why Specify Stone Wool?3.

  31. 31. Advantages of Stone Wool in a Cavity Wall Assembly6. Vapor Permeability Stone wool is not a vapor retarder Good wall design should never include 2 vapor barriers Vapor permeance exceeds 30 perms “Breathable insulation” will not trap vapor Excellent for walls with split insulation (i.e. batt + exterior) Does not support mold or fungus growth Maximizes drying potential Great for mixed climates
  32. 32. Why Specify Stone Wool?6. Vapor Permeability Stone wool insulation will not block vapor as it tries to escape through the exterior wall assembly Interior Exterior
