Glazed Iso Balls (GIB)
GIB is a light weight material produced by special process. The material is in the form of glass like bubbles. These are closed cell particles with high mechanical strength, very low water absorption & very high fire resistance characteristic. GIB being chemically inert has excellent heat & acoustic insulation characteristics & once mixed with cement, very high thermal resistance value can be achieved.
Glazed Iso Balls are widely used in Building Construction Industry as a lightweight aggregate, when combined with Portland cement and water it produces ultra-lightweight concrete. GIB is a very unique insulating material, especially when studied in comparison with other conventional insulating materials having RValue 2.78.
GIB can also be used in other areas where making a product lighter will be beneficial & a variety of permanent insulating applications.
Popular applications of GIB:-
- Insulating roof decks
- Lightweight floor fills/screeds
- Insulating structural roof decks
- Curtain wall systems
- Lightweight pre-cast panels for partitions
- Lightweight insulating blocks
- Roof / Ceiling tiles
- Hollow / Cavity walls
Glazed Iso Balls Concrete insulation is the ideal base for the built-up and single-ply roofing systems.
