It has a high insulating capacity (Superior thermal resistance), it is non- combustible; if there is a fire, it does not give out dark smoke, it is not damaged by acids or bases, it is not eatable by insects or rodents, and it resists high temperatures.
It can be used in roofs, covers, walls and it does not need any special preparation before installation.
DTI recommends distributes and ISOVER insulation for excellent quality at competitive prices.

ACOUSTIC INSULATIONWhen we are facing an architectural project, it is really important to bear in mind then the noises that are generated outside (according to placement, zonings, uses, neighbors) and the ones that will be produced inside (according to typology) after the end of the work in question.
The objective of the acoustic insulation is that the noises coming from outside, for example from places adjoining, do not enter the place you want to protect and the other way round, the noises produced inside, do not contaminate neighbors of the same construction nor from other construction.
The acoustic conditioning is necessary to use the place correctly in the corresponding activity. This means to control the reflections produced by noises generated because of the use and according to its function, reducing them with acoustic absorption. It is also denominated control reverberation time. The acoustic insulation always has to be solved before the conditioning while the project is taking place and also in the construction.
The acoustic insulation performance depends on three parameters:
• Acoustic properties of the used materials
• Building Technic
• Architectural design
Isover glass-wool objective as acoustic insulation is to lower the air and solid sound transmissions from one place to the other. This way it is obtained the needed comfort to work correctly. Isover glass-wool is the acoustic insulator par excellence. Porous materials have a good performance in medium and high frequencies, being possible to improve the low ones mainly with thicknesses and raising the density up to 50 Kg/m3; as it is increased the resistance to air passing without losing elasticity.
THERMAL INSULATIONThermal insulation consists in lowering the heat transfence and the thermic exchanges. In winter, to diminish losing heat, that is to say, to minimize the heat flux from inside to outside and in summer to avoid the heat entrance reducing the air conditioning consumption. In construction, it is an important mainstay to bear in mind facing nowadays energetic problems in our country and in the whole planet.
Isover glass-wool use in construction follows the following objectives:
* Avoiding environmental pollution generated by the combustion of organic fuels. Environment care.
* Lowering energy consumption. Saving in heating and refrigerating equipment, reflecting the saving directly in the rates and in the pollution produced when generating energy.
* Improving comfort. Keeping a uniform temperature.
* Avoiding condensation problems.
* Controlling building pathologies that can deteriorate building aspects and can be damaging for human health.
As it can be appreciated, each of the mentioned items is of great importance nowadays, at national and international level.
All of them can be achieved if the buildings are thermically insulated in an adequate way. The density of the materials influence in its lambda value, and so in its thermal resistance. When the density is increased the conductivity coefficient lowers and consequently the thermal resistance improves. However, this variation is narrow. The lambda cannot be lowered indefinitely by raising the density, there are limits. In glass-wool, the best improvement to be achieved is a 20%. On the contrary, if the thickness is raised, the thermal resistance will raise proportionally and in that case there are no limits, with the exception of the physical space, to obtain the required resistance. That is to say, it is always more efficient from an economical point of view, to work with glass-wool of low density in high thickness than working with lower thicknesses and raising density. This is so because the cost is also raised increasing in equal proportions the thickness or the density. In other words, when the thickness is duplicated, the double of thermal resistance is gained; whereas if the density is duplicated (what means the same increase in cost), it can only be gained, at most, a 20% more of thermal resistance.
Isover glass-wool is the best insulating material, compared to other materials, for instance, it is needed a meter thick of brick masonry, 2 meters thick of concrete or 7 meters thick of steel to get equal thermal resistance to the one obtained with 5 centimeters of low density glass-wool.
HIDROREPELLENT PROCESSIsover Argentina has an hidrorepellent process for its glass-wool, which gives its products an important attribute: ‘water does not affect it’, so its thermal, acoustic and flameproof qualities are kept without alterations; even if there was a filtration because of covering dam or tile movement, a leak in the piping or if it remained accidentally exposed to the rain. Its hidrorepellent line is composed by under tiles, light felt, Rolac silver, tensioned felt and Rolac silver wall.
PROTECTION AGAINST FIREThe insulation also contributes to increase your family protection in case of fire. Mineral wools are not inflammable and do not free injurious gases. On the contrary, they limit the propagation of flames and retard the spreading of the fire.
Isover products are constituted by glass-wool, with different densities and thicknesses, which are characterized by its excellent behavior when facing fire.
Isover glass-wool is a totally incombustible material. Classification RE1 (incombustible) according to Norm IRAM 11910 and MO (incombustible) according to Norm UNE 23727. Walls, partitioning, coverings, ceilings and other building elements insulated with glass-wool products, work as a barrier against fire. This means that if there is fire coming from outside or from neighbor places, the glass- wool retards the spreading of the fire for a determined period of time.
