Fiberglass has a very long, diverse list of applications that make it an outstanding product for our customers and their needs. A high surface-area-to-weight ratio makes fiberglass insulation a lightweight, cost-effective solution.
Overall Performance & Applications: The following are just some of the various Fiberglass applications:
Fiberglass is a naturally sound-absorbent material that significantly reduces sound transmission in wall, ceiling, floor and HVAC assemblies.
Fiberglass board and batting provide effective and labor-efficient wall and ceiling insulation in residential, commercial and marine applications.
Fiberglass tapes find wide applications in wrapping vessels, hot pipelines, etc.
Fiberglass cloth is smooth and is available in variants like glass fiber yarns and glass filament yarns. It is widely used as a heat shield, in fire curtains, and other applications.
Fiberglass ropes are braided from glass fiber yarns and are used for packing purposes.
Physical Characteristics: Fiberglass has high mechanical strength, is a good electrical insulator, is non-combustible, and does not propagate flame or emit smoke. Dimensionally stable and non-rotting, it has low thermal conductivity.
Temperature Range: Maximum operating temperature is 1,000° F.
Environmentally Safe & Friendly: Fiberglass insulation has significant recycled content, with some batt, roll and loose-fill insulation products containing up to 80 percent recycled glass.
Fabricated Products: Fiberglass products come in loose-fill insulation, boards, batting, plain and faced pipe cover, fitting insulation, duct linings and wraps. DI has a significant portion of our business dedicated to the fabrication of metal building insulation. Silvercote, a Distribution International company, is an industry leader with this product.
Reduced Cost: Fiberglass insulation has a lower installed price than many other types of insulating materials. DI fabricated products eliminate in-field fabrication time and cost, allowing you to focus on installation.
Applications: Pipe Insulation, Fitting Insulation, Equipment, Acoustics, Mechanical, HVAC, Industrial, Residential, Commercial, and Metal Building Insulation.
