Insulation is a material whose purpose is to protect two adjacent systems or surfaces from mutual adverse interactions. The following types of insulation are distinguished:

  • Electrical (preventing the flow of electrical charges)
  • Waterproofing (protecting against water, moisture and steam)
  • Thermal insulation (which protects against unfavorable heat exchange with the environment)
  • Windproofing (to protect against heat loss)
  • Acoustic (lowering the intensity of sounds and suppressing unwanted sounds)
  • Anti-vibration (reduce the impact of vibrations on building elements, machinery)
  • Chemically resistant (protect the element from environmental aggression)

Features of effective insulation

  • Stability of parameters
  • Leakage
  • No thermal bridges
    responsible for heat loss
  • Low thermal conductivity
  • Optimum thickness
  • Lightweight (no strain on the structure)
  • Good adhesion to various materials
  • Resistance to changing weather conditions, especially temperature and humidity
  • Mechanical, chemical and biological resistance
