Work with styrofoam and stone wool




Working with a styrofoam

For insulation of the building, the most commonly used styrofoam is for facades, as a material that is not expensive and easy to install. With us you can find styrofoam and adhesive for facades, as well as all the necessary facade materials.

We offer more acrylic mortars, cushions and facades for facades.

When it comes to facade paints, their choice is definitely crucial for the general appearance of the facade. The spectrum of colors is really huge and we are sure you will find just what is right for you.
If you need consultation on the choice of color or you are interested in prices, terms of purchase and delivery, be free to contact us.

The difference between the use of stone wool and styrofoam

Either way the client decides we are doing both activities.
Isolation of objects is one of the areas where there are many factors that influence the end result, and this should be added to what companies that produce materials for isolating objects are forced as important. When one starts to work, the more he asks if the stone wool or polystyrene will receive more information from which time everything will be in direct contradiction.
From time to time, information will be provided that these two materials are almost identical to the end result, and quite often, glass wool will be inserted throughout the story. As the most accurate data should be used by the material manufacturer, and a little more careful with what is heard on the warehouses and the masters.
In this text, we will not exclusively deal with the ways of setting the insulation, but we will mainly write about the properties of the materials themselves that are used in thermal insulation of objects. But here we must mention that in some situations the vapor permeable film should be used and a lot of accounts should be kept.

Similarities and differences
In order to decide what we will use as insulation, stone wool or polystyrene, we should first see the basic characteristics of each of these building materials. It would be good to get acquainted with what is stated in the Ordinance on Energy Efficiency of Buildings (“Official Gazette of the Republic of Serbia”, 061/2011).
The styrofoam is made of small balls of polyurethane, which are glued to one another at a lower pressure. In the market there can also be a hard stirrer, which is called a styrofoam, which is made by the same glueing of polyurethane beads but under greater pressure. As the larger amount of air between the spheres is displaced, the styrofoam has a higher density and weight than regular styrofoam.
Stone wool is practically formed by melting certain types of rocks, which are then developed into threads, and they are arranged as blacks from which blocks of certain dimensions are made. As it is made of stones, it is resistant to conventional fire temperatures and is therefore considered non-flammable material (it suffers temperatures up to 750 ° C). In addition to thermal and fire protection, this material also provides good sound insulation.
Similarities are numerous, with stone wool providing 10% better results in thermal insulation, but it is also necessary, unlike styrofoam, to pivot the wall when it is placed on the facade regardless of height.
