ROCKLOYD SLABS  


Rockloyd Slabs are conforming to IS - 8183 : 1993, ASTM C612, C553 and equivalent BS 3958-5 are designed for thermal and acoustic insulation of flat or slightly curved surfaces operating at temperatures up to 750 C. The robust fibers combine high levels of thermal efficiency. Approved for A - 60 class insulation.

FIRE SAFETY  : In Combustible 
ACOUSTICAL PROPERTIES   : Suitable for acoustical insulation  
COMPATIBILITY   : Compatible with all form of Industrial Material 
MOISTURE  : Water Repellent, Non Hygroscopic 

CHEMICALLY NEUTRAL, ENVIRONMENT FRIENDLY,
ROCKLOYD SLABS DOES NOT SUSTAIN VERMIN GROWTH

APPLICATION

 

Rockloyd Slabs are aesthetically engineered for a wide range of applications at both high & low service temperatures and are preferred to use on both flat & slightly curved surfaces for economics and effective insulation on thermal, acoustical and fire protection.

Rockloyd Slabs are widely used in industries for boilers, tanks, vessels, ovens, furnaces, bulkheads and ship deck etc. Due to its matchless performance in providing thermal & acoustical insulation & with fire-protection.


Rockloyd slabs are preferably used in Commercial buildings viz. Malls, Hotels, Hospitals, Multiplex, Airports, Residential Townships etc. to give better sound proofing. Rockloyd Rockwool Insulation provides thermal comfort to users and save energy by way of reduced electricity bills & complements the air conditioning effect.

THERMAL CONDUCTIVITY

Rockloyd Slabs are tested according to IS 3346, ASTM C533 & ASTM C612 to offers LOWEST THERMAL CONDUCTIVITY TO-WEIGHT ratio among all industrial insulants, thus minimizing the total load on the applied equipment. Thermal conductivity or k-value of our material does not exceed the values mentioned in the table given below.

FIRE RESISTANCE

Incombustible when tested as per ASTM E-84 & IS-3144. Melting point of Fibres is above 1000°C (1832°F)

CORROSION PROTECTION

Rockloyd Fibres are having negligible impurities like halides (chlorides and fluorides) and sulphides, which are commonly found in other insulation materials, as tested according to ASTM C795.



This is due to the fact that Rockloyd fibres are manufactured by dry manufacturing process and its faint alkanity actually fights corrosive reactions.

WATER & MOISTURE REPELLENT

Rockloyd Slab, by virtue of their fiber surface treatment and lay pattern, having an angle of contact exceeding 90°, resulting in good resistance to water absorption and moisture ingress. Rockloyd Slabs don't promote capillary action.



COMPRESSION & SOUND ABSORPTION

Rockloyd Slabs provides excellent sound absorption by virtue of its scientific fibre lay pattern, ensures controlled dispersion of air pockets and precise air-flow resistance.



SALIENT FEATURES

Longer life, permitting re-use after removal during maintenance.
Higher thermal performance, as it is made out of rich siliceous Rockwool.
Environment friendly, as there is no feathering (which normally pollutes the environment).
Uncontaminated, as manufacturing is a totally dry process.
Non-wicking.
Superior compressive strength.
Excellent resistance to vibration & jolting.

ADVANTAGES

Excellent thermal & acoustic with Fire Protection  
Non-Combustible
Water repellent
Excellent thermal resistance
Chemically Inert
Negligible Chloride Content
Energy Conservation & fuel saving
Ease of application
Cost effective
CFC & HCFC Free
