Johns Manvvile Mineral Wool InsulationJohns Manville has added commercial and residential mineral wool to its full spectrum of insulation products. JM MinWool is made from inorganic fibers derived from basalt, using a manufacturing process that ensures a high-fiber density and a low amount of shot material. With its high melting point (in excess of 2,000°F), mineral wool can help delay fire spread; it also has superior soundproofing performance. Dense and durable, MinWool products can be easily and accurately cut and are available in a range of thicknesses and sizes. JM is the only manufacturer to offer compression packaging for mineral wool products, which allows for efficient storage and transport.

The company’s line of mineral wool products includes TempControl Batts and Sound & Fire Block Batts. Both are lightweight, noncombustible and contribute to high fire-resistance ratings in wood-stud cavities. TempControl Batts are available in R-15 and R-23 for exterior walls.
