CAVITYROCK® is a semi-rigid insulation board designed for exterior cavity wall and rainscreen applications

These products offer superior long-term thermal efficiency, fire resistance, moisture control, acoustic performance and are compatible with numerous framing systems and cladding attachment systems.

ROCKWOOL CAVITYROCK®, in thicknesses of up to 2 inches, is mono-density and in thicknesses of 2.5 to 6 inches is dual-density. The unique dual-density insulation combines a high density outer layer and a more compliant, low density inner layer that are created simultaneously in our proprietary manufacturing process.

Properties:

  • Non-combustible stone wool insulation with melting point of approximately 1177°C (2150°F)
  • Fire-resistant due to its high melting temperature
  • Water and moisture resistant; does not absorb moisture to maintain insulating value
  • Chemically inert
  • Does not rot or promote the growth of mildew, fungi or bacteria
  • CFC- and HCFC- free product and process
  • Made from natural and recycled materials
  • ROCKWOOL® can contribute to earning LEED® points
