What Is Rockwool Insulation?
Rockwool Insulation is created by melting down rocks at a high temperature and then spinning the rock into fiber strands. Rockwool material was originally discovered naturally occurring in Hawaii, as a result of high winds blowing the molten rock during volcanic eruptions, which was then found hanging from trees near volcanos. The rockwool strands can be formed into batts or blown-in insulation material. Rockwool Insulation has an R-Value of about 3.0-R to 3.3-R per inch.
