2. The water absorption rate is high, which cannot be compared with wall insulation materials such as foam glass, foam ceramics, phenolic foam board, polystyrene particles, polystyrene board, and extruded board.

2. Phenolic foam material

Phenolic foam material is a polymer organic rigid foam product, which is foamed from thermosetting phenolic resin. It is lightweight, fireproof, does not burn in case of open flames, smokeless, non-toxic, non-drip, and has a wide operating temperature range (- 196~+200℃), no shrinkage or embrittlement under low temperature environment.


Advantages of phenolic foam insulation board:
1. Excellent fire resistance, the phenolic insulation board will not burn in case of fire, and the combustion performance can reach up to Class A;
2. Excellent thermal insulation performance: low thermal conductivity (<0.025W/m·K), excellent heat preservation and heat insulation performance;
3. Anti-corrosion;
4. Low density and light weight;
5. Good sound absorption performance;
6. Use safety: Phenolic insulation board adopts fluorine-free foaming technology, no fiber, and meets national and international environmental protection requirements.
Disadvantages of phenolic foam insulation board:
1. The fire resistance grade is B grade, up to A2 grade, but the production cost is increased;
2. The operating temperature is -60℃~150℃, and it cannot be used under high temperature. Exceeding 200℃ will release highly toxic fumes;
3. The physical properties are not ideal, the overall adhesion is not good, and the compressive and flexural resistance is extremely low. In order to increase its compressive and tensile strength, a layer of inorganic board or mesh cloth (sandwich board) is usually attached on both sides. );
4. The price is relatively high;
5. Organic matter is not resistant to aging, and the long-term effect of ultraviolet rays and other rays will cause the phenolic insulation board to lose its function and shorten the service life;
6. Pollution of the environment, phenol and formaldehyde are used in the production process, and the production of phenol and formaldehyde is a highly polluting project;
7. Different companies have different product improvement methods, and product quality varies greatly.

 3. Aluminum silicate insulation material

The aluminum silicate board is made by melting the selected coke gemstones in an electric furnace above 2000 ℃, and mechanically spraying them into fibers, and uniformly adding special binders, oil repellents, and water repellents to be cured by heating. Mainly used in the power industry, power boilers, steam turbines and nuclear power insulation, fire insulation in the shipbuilding industry, fire insulation in the construction industry, fire doors in the construction industry, wall linings for high temperature reaction equipment and heating equipment in the chemical industry, automobile and train manufacturing, Fire prevention, heat insulation, furnace lining, furnace door and other fields.
Aluminum silicate thermal insulation material is a new type of environmentally friendly thermal insulation material. Single-component material, non-toxic and harmless, in line with national building standards, has excellent sound absorption, high temperature resistance, water resistance, frost resistance, low shrinkage, seamless overall, no cold bridge or thermal bridge formation, light bulk density, and heat preservation performance , Is a Class A non-combustible fireproof and heat insulation material, which is mostly used for industrial heat preservation and heat insulation, but less used for building heat preservation.


Advantages of aluminum silicate insulation material:
1. High temperature resistance, the highest operating temperature can reach 1500℃;
2. Low thermal conductivity and good thermal insulation performance. When used under the same conditions, aluminum silicate products have lower thermal conductivity than other thermal insulation materials;
3. Light weight, soft, light, and flexible, with dry process products ranging from 80 to 100 kg/m³, wet process products from 100 to 130 kg/m³;
4. It is not wet to molten metal and has good chemical stability;
5. Good sound absorption and sound insulation performance, with good sound insulation and sound insulation effect;
6. Good electrical insulation and high dielectric constant; it can be used as high-frequency insulating material.
Disadvantages of aluminum silicate insulation material:
1. The compressive and flexural strength of aluminum silicate is relatively poor;
2. Easy to produce dust;
3. The waterproof performance is not particularly good. If the aluminum silicate thermal insulation cotton comes into contact with water, it will greatly reduce the thermal insulation effect;

4. Loose insulation materials (glass wool, rock wool)

Glass wool:
Glass wool is a product made by using unique centrifugal technology to fiberize molten glass and add an environmentally friendly formula binder mainly composed of thermosetting resin.


As a kind of thermal insulation cotton, glass wool has the advantages of low thermal conductivity, flexible and slender fiber, and porous sound-absorbing structure. It not only has good thermal insulation performance, but also has good sound absorption effect, so glass wool can be used for Into wall panels, ceilings, space sound-absorbing bodies, etc. Although dust will be generated during construction, after the improvement of the process, the existing high-quality white formaldehyde-free glass wool has almost no dust generation.
Rock wool:
Rock wool insulation material is made of basalt and other natural ores as the main raw materials, melted into fibers at high temperature, and processed by adding an appropriate amount of binder.


As a kind of thermal insulation cotton, rock wool has the advantage of being composed of high-density materials, which are also fibrous materials, but the sound absorption effect is not as good as glass wool, but the sound insulation effect is better than glass wool, so in general, use As a sound insulation material, it can be used for heat preservation and sound insulation of building walls and roofs, as well as heat preservation and heat insulation of ships and sound insulation of fire-proof partition keel sandwiches. The sound absorption and heat preservation effect of rock wool is slightly inferior to that of glass wool.

5. Rubber and plastic insulation materials

The rubber and plastic insulation material is a closed-cell elastic material, which has excellent properties such as softness, bending resistance, cold resistance, heat resistance, flame retardancy, water resistance, low thermal conductivity, shock absorption, and sound absorption. It can be widely used in central air-conditioning, construction, chemicals, medicine, textiles, metallurgy, ships, vehicles, electrical appliances and other fields.
