ROCKWOOL Manufacturing Facility

Bridgend, South Wales

Description

The ROCKWOOL manufacturing facility in Bridgend manufactures insulation materials that are non-combustible insulation and fire-retardant materials made of “mineral wool,” or fiber materials that are formed by spinning or drawing molten minerals. In addition to having excellent thermal properties, it is highly fire-resistant and does not release toxic gases or smoke when exposed to high heat. ROCKWOOL products are widely used as cladding for residential and commercial buildings.


Products Used

PENETRON ADMIX with a tracer was added to the freshly-batched concrete mix and used for more than 1,000 m2 (11,000 square feet) of concrete floor slabs. The tracer provides construction and design teams with a reliable identification control tool – and proof that “Penetron is in the mix.” PENEBAR SW water stop strips were installed to seal all resulting construction joints in the new slab.
