An ultimate guide on the 5 most common thermal insulation materials

Today, the marketplace is full of ridiculous products; hence it is straightforward to be blinded by low quality and cheap thermal insulation materials. There some elements which have been in the market for quite some time and they are of high quality. However, Advanced Insulation and Fabrications who are commercial installation specials have in-depth research on the type of materials you need to purchase depending on your requirement or situation.

Here an ultimate guide on the best common thermal insulation materials worth investing for any small to medium-sized project.

1. Fiberglass

Production of fibreglass makes it the most common thermal insulation materials. Its manufacture involves efficiently plaiting fine strands of glass into insulation materials hence enabling minimization of heat transfer. However, every insulation material has its downfalls, and fibreglass is no exception.

Its danger occurs when handling since its components (glass powder, woven silicon, and glass shards) can impact your skin, lungs, and eyes if you don’t wear highly protective gear. Fibreglass has R-values ranging from R-2.9 to R-3.8 per inch hence making it non-flammable.

2. Mineral wool

There are three different kinds of insulation when it comes to mineral wool. First, glass wool is made of recycled glass. Thus, its qualities are close to those of fibreglass. Second, rock wool is manufactured from basalt. Lastly, slag wool is made of slag generated from steel mills.

In cases of extreme heat usage, mineral wool is not the best because they are not fire-resistant due to lack of enough additives. When broad insulating areas, consider using mineral wool since it is not inflammable. It has R-value ranging from R-2.8 to R-3.5.

3. Cellulose

Cellulose is a form of insulation that is renowned for its eco-friendly nature. It is produced loosely hence consists of various materials such as paper and recycled cardboard. According to a recent study, cellulose can reduce fire perils because it has an R-value between R-3.1 and R-3.7. Besides, it has les oxygen in it due to its compactness.

When it comes to the best insulation for fire-resistant, cellulose holds the budge making it more environmentally friendly. However, one of its merits is that is causes allergies to dust allergic people.

4. Polyurethane foam

Polyurethane foam is a brilliant form of insulation, although not the best. It ensures the reduction of damages of the ozone layer since it uses non-chlorofluorocarbon (CFC) gas, which makes it’s a blowing agent. Polyurethane foam materials are light to handle hence has an R-value of approximately R-6.3 per inch of breadth. It works better when sprayed on areas with no insulation. Moreover, it is fire resistant, thus being an added advantage.

5. Polystyrene

Polystyrene is an outstanding temperature, and sound insulation material since its thermoplastic foam is usually waterproof. It is manufactured in two types, that is, expanded (EPS) and extruded (XEPS). XEPS has an R-value of R-5.5 while EPS has R-4, thus making the two types diverse in terms of cost and ratings. It has a smooth surface; hence you will not undertake many insulation procedures.

When using the material, ensure that you use Hexabromocyclododecane (HBCD), which is a flame-retardant chemical because polystyrene is highly flammable.

Consequently, safety is the key and cannot be traded for anything. Always ensure you are in the right gear to reduce the risk of health damages. Always wear face masks, gloves, and eye protection before handling any thermo insulation materials.

Small Project of the Year Award

Excellence in civil engineering is recognized via the yearly held South East Civil Engineering Awards exhibition. Alkim Civil Engineering emerged the winners of the 2019 Institution of Civil Engineers Small Project of the Year Award, for their cutting-edge dam engineering project with the United Utilities. Now the JEG Projects is rejoicing after their break-through was recognized through the award.

The most recent techniques invented for enhancing the steadiness of an earth dam were utilized in the Darwen UK, Earnsdale Impounding Reservoir project. For this, the project was commended by the judging panel. A substantial geotextile load moving machine and a reinforced earth wall with in-depth mixing of the soil were the first UK solutions.

There were enhanced cooperation and cost reduction through the use of a primary tool called the JEG Projects 3D earthworks model. With the help of the crucial tool to understand the design and optimize organization, there was appropriate delivery as non-professionals became conversant with the emergency plans and safety techniques statements.

The program time was reduced by two months, volume cut short by 900m3 through value-engineering the soil mixing solution by the team, and considerably decreasing cost. This was achieved by boosting the 3D geotechnical model designs.

The South East Regional Chair of Institute of Civil Engineers Alan Jones noted that the ground-breaking method used by the Earnsdale Impounding Reservoir contributed to the winning of the 2019 Small Project of the year award. He commended the cutting-edge mechanical inventions for the engineering of the UK dam and 3D modelling that helped in organization and time planning during the project.

The project was termed as incredible and cooperative with a vast result that will uphold the dam for years. The United Utilities Geotechnical Engineer, Dr. Chri Parks, further added that the ICE award is an earned award that displays pioneering designs and hard work utilized into the project by numerous individuals around all the companies involved.

The uncovered and high site had challenging working circumstances that required deep soil mixing, which worked perfectly. Luckily the earth system allowed elasticity to withhold the curves and slopes needed by the JEG Projects inventive design as told by Askam Civil Engineering Managing Director and principal contractor John Lowery. He further said that people involved at JEG Projects, Alkim, and United Utilities put recommendable extra effort on the project.

The head of UK Market Leader Water Stewart Tennant remarked that the project showcases a good case of high-level teamwork and cooperation in going against natural earth conditions and is evidence of the devotion of the company’s talented staff who deliver endless economic and inventive solutions.

The geotechnical and civil engineering brilliance of JEG Projects has gained recognition previously in the UK. JEG Projects has gained compliments for its notable projects on the Lee Gain and Swinden reservoir, not forgetting the Elan Valley Aqueduct. JEG Projects has now been chosen as a finalist for the most competitive award in NAC100 2019 Excellence in Water category.
