Rockwool RWA45 is often used as an insulation product in a variety of building applications and projects. But why is it so versatile? What qualities make it ideal for use in different scenarios?

Rockwool RWA45 is a mineral wool insulation, meaning it has thermal value, but due to the density of the materials, it is more commonly used as soundproof insulation. This makes it perfect for use in areas where good acoustic protection is required, such as in schools, hospitals, office buildings, and homes.

It is also classed as A1 non-combustible on the Euroclass scale, meaning that it does not burn and can therefore be used in areas where there is a high risk of fire. Due to this, it meets the Building Regulations for England and Wales, Scotland, Northern Ireland, and the Republic of Ireland.

The resin binders used in its manufacture give it exceptional dimensional stability, meaning it will not shrink or settle over time. This makes it ideal for use in walls, as the insulation will not be affected by changes in temperature or humidity.

Rockwool RWA45 is also rot-proof and water-repellent, meaning it can be used in wet environments without the risk of damage. This makes it a perfect choice for insulation in bathrooms, kitchens, and basements.

In short, Rockwool RWA45 is a multi-purpose insulation product that can be used in a variety of building applications and projects. It has exceptional thermal values, acoustic insulation qualities, and is flame retardant.
