The service life of such insulation of at least 100 years old! Foam glass is easily processed, it can give any desired shape. When mounting can be used almost any construction mastics and adhesives. Foam glass, as usual, glass, non-toxic, non-flammable, chemically inert, is not afraid to alkalis and acids (exposed only hydrofluoric acid). In all respects promising insulation. Another type of inorganic thermal insulation materials – foam concrete and aerated concrete (aerated concrete).
With its high strength commensurate with the strength of conventional concrete, this material has high insulating properties at a much lower weight. Foam concrete is easily processed, environmentally safe, the construction of the walls of the foam is significantly reduced load on the foundation, but greatly increases the thermal insulation characteristics of the building. Used as an alternative to conventional concrete in the construction of walls, mostly in low-rise stroitelstve.K Organic insulating materials include: Styrofoam – very light, almost non-combustible material having a cellular structure and consisting of carbon and hydrogen atoms. Manufactured by foaming polystyrene granules strongly heated by steam with the substance of pentane, which was subsequently replaced by atmospheric air. Another well-known to all, but not quite exact name Styrofoam – polystyrene. Styrofoam good insulation, because of its chicken wire structure, it is 90% consists of air and the air is known to one of the best heat insulator. One of its drawbacks is the relative fragility – he's afraid the impact of blows and strong vibrations. In general, polystyrene – foam is very well known and has long been used in construction.
