Thermally insulating

The large amount of air enclosed in its pores provides excellent thermal insulation.

The thermal conductivity of the Energocell® foam glass granules in a layer compacted at 1:1.3 is 0.086 W/mK, which means that the 30-cm layer-thickness recommended under buildings complies with the new energy requirements. For passive houses, depending on the dimensioning, the recommended compacted layer-thickness is about 40-50 cm.
