Deutsch: Isolierung / Español: Aislante / Français: Isolant / Italiano: Isolante
Insulation means a building insulation, added to buildings for comfort and energy efficiency or acoustic insulation, any means of reducing the intensity of sound or the thermal insulation, materials used to reduce the rate of heat transfer or the electrical insulation, the use of material to resist the flow of electric current and magnetism.

In the industrial or industry context, "insulation" refers to materials used to reduce the flow of heat, electricity, or sound between two different materials or environments. Some examples of industrial uses of insulation include:

  • Building Insulation: Materials such as fiberglass, cellulose, and foam are used to insulate walls, roofs, and floors of buildings to improve energy efficiency and reduce heating and cooling costs.

  • Electrical Insulation: Materials such as mica, glass, and rubber are used to insulate electrical components, such as wires and transformers, to prevent electrical shock and minimize energy loss.

  • Thermal Insulation: Materials such as fiberglass, ceramics, and aerogel are used to insulate pipes, tanks, and other equipment to reduce heat transfer and maintain temperature control.

  • Acoustic Insulation: Materials such as fiberglass, foam, and mineral wool are used to absorb sound and reduce noise transmission in walls, ceilings, and floors of buildings and industrial equipment.

  • Fireproof Insulation: Materials such as ceramic fiber, mineral wool, and vermiculite are used to provide fire resistance and insulation in high-temperature applications, such as furnace linings and fireproofing of structural steel.
