Thermal insulation materials

Thermal insulation

At B6 Gruppen, we offer several types of materials, all of which have good thermal insulation properties.

Common to our materials is that they are all of polymeric origin - and thus have a range of advantage compared to the traditional undesirable mineral wool.

The SI unit for thermal conductivity is "Watts per meter Kelvin" and expressed as follows: (W/mK) ie. Watt per meter, per degree temperature difference between the two temperatures, this is also known as λ-value (lambda value).

Note: The less λ-value, the better the insulation.

Polymere materials

By comparison, mineral wool has a thermal conductivity of about 0.036 W/mK - which polymeric materials with ease can compete with.


Values for typically used polymere materials:​

  • PE foam:     0,031​ - 0,034 W/mK
  • PUR foam: 0,034 - 0,036 W/mK
  • PUR foam: 0,021 - 0,025 W/mK
  • PIR foam:   0,021 - 0,025 W/mK
  • EPS foam​:  0,034 W/mK​​

The right choice of material

If you want to replace your current insulating material, eg mineral wool, with a polymeric product - then contact us and get a dialogue about the many benefits we can offer. In addition to the thermal properties, polymers also have a range of other advantages.

Typical heard justifications for just decommissioning mineral wool as insulation material are statements like these:

  • ​Mineral wool dusts and emits unwanted glass or stone fibers during processing and application
  • You must use a protective respirator when working with mineral wool

  • Working with mineral wool often causes itching and burning on the skin

  • It is difficult to cut precise items in mineral wool

  • The cutting waste from mineral wool must be sorted and delivered separately as waste of landfills​​​​​
