What Are the Applications of Glass Wool?

Nov. 08, 2021

Glass wool applications include structural insulation, pipe insulation, filtration and sound insulation. They are used in insulation products and are applied in several areas of buildings. In addition, glass wool is the most common insulation material for residential roofs and has the following applications.


1. Cavity wall and drywall insulation

These have been developed for insulation within steel framed structures, timber framed buildings and drywall systems. It is manufactured from high quality glass wool with glass wool fabric on one side for easy handling and increased rigidity.


Applications in drywall.

Steel frame construction

Timber frame construction

Drywall systems

Designed for use in hollow walls but can be used effectively at the top of ceilings, at roof lines or in masonry wall cavities.


Applications of glass wool as an overwrap.

HVAC and air conditioning system insulation: duct wrap is an insulation blanket specifically designed to wrap air conditioning ducts

Exterior wrapping around metal air conditioning ducts: rectangular and circular heating, ventilation and air conditioning systems.

2. Duct insulation

This insulation is a 1 m long pre-formed rigid resin-bonded glass wool section. A single longitudinal slit allows the part to be opened to enclose the pipe and to close it after placement. Standard finish options are canvas, plain and reinforced foil.


3. Industrial roofing insulation

This is made of high quality, non-combustible, flexible material. The glass wool insulation with inert binder makes the product light, safe and flexible. It faces to one side with a reinforcing foil or white metal foil. It can be applied to both sides on request.


4. Purlin insulation in commercial buildings

Factory board is a rigid board made of non-combustible glass wool insulation. It is commonly used as a multi-purpose wall cladding as well as purlin roof insulation. It is available in thicknesses of 25, 40 or 50 mm.

5. Suspended ceilings

Ceiling tiles are made of non-combustible inorganic glass wool and are bonded with an inert thermosetting resin adhesive. The decorative vinyl finish comes in a coral colour and is durable.


Applications of glass wool as suspended ceilings.


Suspended ceilings: domestic, commercial, industrial

Ceilings in commercial buildings such as cinemas, home cinemas, recording studios, etc.

6. Higher temperature insulation

It is made of non-combustible glass wool, which is bonded with an inert thermosetting resin to form a hard and flexible product. It is odourless, inert and fully compatible with all standard building materials.


Glass wool as thermal and acoustic control.


A range of glass wool wools and blankets for thermal and acoustic control in commercial buildings.

Industrial insulation for applications up to 450°C.

Heat conservation and control in boilers, storage tanks, ductwork, ovens, etc.

Sound proofing of compressor and plant rooms.


7. High performance and sound insulation

Ceiling tiles made of non-combustible inorganic glass wool and bonded with an inert thermosetting resin adhesive. The floor is covered with black non-woven cellophane, which has a good sound absorption effect. It is used not only in commercial buildings such as cinemas where excellent sound insulation is required, but also in other areas where optimum sound absorption is needed. Used as glass wool panels, which in turn translates into home cinema insulation.


All in all, glass wool is an insulating material that has a variety of applications in the home as part of roofing, false ceilings, drywall, home cinemas and much more. It is widely used for its known advantages in terms of insulation, fire safety and ease of installation.
