Characteristics of Ursa insulation + photos and sizes
Standard Ursa insulation materials are very popular. They can not only produce traditional insulation of the roof and walls, but also insulate ventilation pipes and other communications. And with such material, you can significantly reduce the noise level. And through them, you can significantly reduce the noise level.
So, let's consider Ursu - a material for insulation, the technical parameters of which are kept at a very high level, and the operational period is quite long.
With its heat retention and excellent noise absorption, it will be great in any building structure.
Such material for thermal insulation is based on processed spatula-type fiberglass. So this material is the closest relative of glass wool. When creating it, they take soda, sand, dolomite and other types of additives in certain proportions. The mixture must be heated to the melting point and passed through a special unit.
The result is a fibrous substance, the thin threads of which are glued with a special agent. There are several products that have been produced by Ursa.
The most popular are the Ursa Geo series of heaters, which are made of fiberglass. Moreover, the company produces a Ursa XPS foam polystyrene insulator, which is made by extrusion. A novelty of the manufacturer, which was made using new technologies, is the PureOne insulation.
Let's take a closer look at such materials.
The appearance of Urs Geo will not differ in any way from glass wool.
Plates made of such a substance serve for quite a few years, they are very durable and solid. For this reason, it is more advisable to use it by insulating flat roofs, floors of the first floor, facades for plastering, plinths and basements. Ursa XPS can also withstand multi-ton loads - it can insulate railway embankments, airport landing strips and the foundations of highways.
In addition, it is convenient to work with it, because it is not prickly, does not attract dust and is similar to materials of natural origin - wool or cotton. This material is a new type of fiberglass type products that does not activate the irritation effect. The photo shows what the new type of PureOne looks like.
But in terms of its performance it is close to professional thermal insulators, and this material is very elastic, does not get wet, does not burn.
Now let's look at their parameters.
Ursa roll insulation has the ability to save warm, and very good. The fact is that its fibers are long and elastic, and because many layers of air appear between them. Having insulated the house with such a heat insulator, you can be sure that its wall surface will not freeze through in the winter season. The thermal conductivity coefficient will determine how good this type of insulation is.
The lower the value of this parameter, the better the material will save heat. If we talk about Ursu Geo, then the indicator is 0. 035-0. 044 W * m * K, depending on the type of insulation. In terms of the degree of noise damping, such a heater is also at a height, and it can have a sound absorption class either "A" or "B".
This has been proven by both practical results and laboratory studies. In general, all fiberglass type materials are excellent at blocking sound waves. For this reason, if you want to create a partition for sound insulation in an apartment, then as one of the variations, we suggest considering one of these materials.
Now about environmental friendliness. Even at the moment of preparation of raw materials, a thorough check of each of the components will take place.
The finished Ursa Geo insulation is still being checked for safety for nature and man. Let us cite as an example the emission of volatile compounds in such a material. And it is 10-15 times less than the European and Russian normative indicators. So with this type of insulation, your home will always have clean air and a pleasant microclimate. In this case, it is required to remember that all materials of the fiberglass type are a little dusty and therefore the walls from the inner parts of the room should be covered with membranes for waterproofing.
The fire does not take the Ursa Geo mineral thermal insulator - it is made on the basis of quartz sand. Such natural material is incapable of catching fire.And if he meets with an open fire, he will not let him go further into the room.
Old age does not threaten this type of insulation. Even after a long time, it will remain the same as it was at the very beginning.
Neither its various positive qualities nor its strength will change. And manufacturers guarantee a service life of at least 50 years. Biological stability - since this substance is of an inorganic type, it is definitely not to the taste of mice, beauties and insects. Harmful microscopic organisms, such as mold, do not grow in it either. The fact is that there is simply nothing for all such living creatures to eat, so they do not live in Ursa Geo, bypassing it.
Please note that all materials in this group are fiberglass with all the ensuing advantages and disadvantages.
This is the latest technology, which in the first The line was used by Europe and Russia, and it began to march successfully around the world. It is through her that such material is made. The essence of the technology lies in the fact that acrylic is used as one of the binding components - it is a chemical safe and neutral polymer for human health. For this reason, fiberglass is not as prickly as with conventional production technology and is less dusty.
Acrylic is a very inert material, it does not dissolve water and will not oxidize the air. For this reason, this type of insulation can be used in hospitals and kindergartens.
As for noise absorption as the characteristics of Ursa PureOne insulation material, they were confirmed by tests by scientists from NIISF of the Russian Scientific Academy. According to the research data, the plate-type material has the "A" sound absorption class, and the wool-like material has the "B" class. The elastic-type acrylic included in the composition can perfectly absorb sound waves.
For this reason, partitions made of such a material protect against noise better than stone-type wool or glass fibers. The difference can be 2 dB. In addition, such a material for insulation is more resilient than plain fiberglass. They even talk about a special "spring effect" that appears inside it. For this reason, it is tightly fixed in the wall cavities, rigidly installed in the spacer, and its shape will not change over time.
The above are the properties that distinguish it favorably from GEO insulation.
Ursa insulation in rolls or plates is very durable. Such material has an excellent degree of strength, and even increased resistance to wear and deformation. At the same time, it can withstand not only stretching and compression, but it will also perfectly resist bending. Ursa XPS and 50 tons of load applied to one square meter can withstand.
Also, the material is environmentally friendly.In the manufacture of such a thermal insulator, carbon dioxide CO 2 is used, which is not at all a toxic substance. All breathing living organisms (and you and I, including) secrete it. For this reason, neither the production process of this type of insulation, nor the finished product are harmful to nature and humans. But do not forget that this is expanded polystyrene, which, when exposed to high temperatures, emit toxic substances.
Waterproof - Ursa XPS thermal insulation material will not absorb water. For this reason, its ability to store heat is not diminished by exposure to damp earth or groundwater. Freezing and thawing again (more than 500 times), it will remain the same. For this reason, where the temperature in the environment often changes, it is even advisable to use such insulation. So it will compare favorably with fiberglass heat insulators, which are discussed above.
The operational period is not less than fifty years, plates made of this type of insulation can serve. In this case, neither the dimensions of the plates, nor the shape, nor the parameters of the material will change at all. Direct contact with soil or plants is not dangerous for such material - this is a big plus. And the question of flammability. Fire retardants are substances that increase resistance to fire, and are part of XPS.
They block the paths for oxygen, and due to this, combustion will not be possible. But as mentioned earlier, such a material is polystyrene foam, which, if it does not support combustion, it very simply melts under the influence of temperature, releasing toxic substances.
