Changing dead load into paying load with Saint-Gobain ISOVER

ISOVER’s high performance insulation material ULTIMATE is for the fourth time in row rewarded with an award by ISO 2010, the trade fair for insulation technology. A new product in the light weight ULTIMATE range is the Marine Wired Mat.

 The unique qualities of ULTIMATE permit the construction of a new generation of ships with increased load capacities, reduced weight and lower fuel consumption. Among others, the vessels concerned include the cruise liners Celebrity Equinox and AIDAblu, with weight savings of several hundred tonnes respectively, thanks to the impressive properties and effectiveness of ULTIMATE, the new generation of mineral wool.

The numerous product advantages of ULTIMATE convinced also the independent international jury of the ISO 2010. Isover has received the award four times in series for different solutions.

 New product

ULTIMATE Marine Wired Mat, a new product in the ULTIMATE range, combines high performance in thermal, acoustic and fire protection with weight savings up to 50 percent. Above all the outstanding thermal conductivity helps to save energy and thus to reduce emissions. Furthermore the effective and innovative packaging saves logistic and installation costs.
