What are the General Properties of Thermal Insulation Materials?

Thermal insulation materials are used to prevent heat loss or to keep heat out. Almost all thermal insulation materials help to prevent the penetration of heat and radiant rays into the hot air and the flow of heat into the cold air. Mainly dependent on thermal conductivity, the most common thermal insulation materials include fiberglass foam. In addition to this, you can choose aerogelli plasterterm thermal insulation plaster, which is very popular recently. Sıvaterm 100% domestic production is healthy and long-lasting. Thanks to its breathing feature, it prevents the formation of mold, moisture and bacteria on your walls. It is a non-combustible thermal insulation material. All insulators share certain properties;

thermal conductivity; The best thermal insulators are those with the lowest thermal conductivity. The lower the thermal conductivity coefficient (lamda), the less heat-conducting and insulator that material is, but the fact that the thermal insulation material you will use in your building has only a very low thermal conductivity coefficient does not mean that it will be the right choice. By adding chemical carcinogenic materials, a very low heat transmission coefficient can be obtained, but the use of these materials on the exterior of our houses may create various risks, such materials are flammable and do not allow air passage, therefore they cause the formation of dampness and mold. causes loss of insulation performance. The sheathing process we have made for our buildings should provide us with a sustainable long-lasting thermal insulation and energy savings. Even if a material that can lose its heat insulation performance in a short time like 3-5 years, it will not be the right choice, even if it has a very low thermal conductivity coefficient.

heat resistance; thermal insulation materials must be heat resistant. A heat insulator that does not have high heat resistance risks melting or burning. Sıvaterm thermal insulation plaster has A1 class non-flammability and can withstand up to 1300 degrees.

air permeability; It is a property that allows air to pass through the tissue or pores. Breathing thermal insulation materials provide you with a healthy and clean indoor atmosphere. Non-breathing thermal insulation materials cause moisture, mold and bacteria on the interior walls of our homes, which causes frequent diseases such as allergic asthma, bronchitis and upper respiratory tract infections.

Waterproof; A waterproof exterior thermal insulation material also does not absorb water and does not rot. Therefore, it is very important to choose a waterproof thermal insulation material for exterior facades.

Apart from these, thermal insulation materials;

It should be light

Must pass air and breathe

It should not rot or change shape over time.

should not be flammable

Must be reusable

The heat insulation should not break off from the surface over time and there should be no gaps between them.

It should be long-lasting and durable

Should be odorless

Microbe should not produce bacteria, should not rot

Should not be harmful to human health

Provide easy and safe use

It should be economical

It should be easy to implement

All these features can only be found together in Sıvaterm insulation plaster. If you want to have a long-lasting and healthy sheathing, you should definitely get in touch with plasterterm. Sıvaterm also has an environmentally friendly production technology.

What are Thermal Insulation Materials?

Heat flows from hot to cold until there is no temperature difference. In homes and businesses, this means that in winter heat flows directly from all heated living spaces into unheated attics, garages, basements and even outdoors. During cold seasons, heat flows from the outside into the home or workplace. In order to ensure comfort, thermal insulation should be made and this heat flow should be reduced.

Some of the materials of thermal insulation are used for special occasions, some of the materials of thermal insulation are used for improvements;

Cellulose insulation

Air bubble film insulation

glass wool insulation

rock wool insulation

Natural wool insulation

Foil thermal insulation

Polystyrene insulation (eps)

Structural insulation panels

polyurethane foam insulation

phenol foam

foam glass

Wood, cork, straw insulation

Inorganic expanded mineral insulation (sivaterm)

Natural and artificial ingredients are used in thermal insulation materials. Heat insulation materials are also flexible according to the structure of the surface on which they are used.

Natural thermal insulation materials have been used effectively since ancient times. In particular, materials such as cotton, straw and sheep wool have been used as insulation materials from ancient times to the present. However, with the development of technology, much more useful insulation materials are included in the building sector.
