Protecting buildings from rainfall and humidity
Just like the stone it’s formed of, stone wool is moisture resistant by nature. During wet and rainy weather, stone wool insulation keeping buildings warm and dry without any reduction in thermal performance over time. It also resists moisture in humid climates, protecting the long-term health of buildings and the people within them.
Although ROCKWOOL stone wool is moisture resistant by nature, it can be engineered to do exactly opposite; to absorb water. The resulting products can meet a range of modern challenges, including helping famers grow fresh produce using 75 percent less water and reducing the impacts of heavy rain in urban areas.
