Description

    CROSS-REFERENCE TO RELATED APPLICATIONS
  • This application is a continuation of U.S. patent application Ser. No. 12/524,491, filed Nov. 12, 2009, which is a U.S. national counterpart application of application serial no. PCT/EP2007/050750 filed Jan. 25, 2007.
  • FIELD OF THE INVENTION
  • This invention relates to a mineral fibre insulating product having a low formaldehyde or formaldehyde free binder.
  • BACKGROUND
  • Industry standard binders used for fibre insulation, for example glass wool and rock wool insulation are based on phenol formaldehyde. Whilst such binders can provide suitable properties to the insulating products there has for some time been a desire to move away from the use of phenol formaldehyde, particularly due to environmental considerations.
  • Traditional polyester based binder systems have previously been proposed but have not gained acceptance in the insulation industry, particularly as their strength in holding the mineral fibres together, especially when exposed to moisture or weathering, has been perceived as insufficient.
  • To date, only one low formaldehyde based mineral insulation binder system has been used on an industrial scale on glass wool insulation; this is based on polyacrylic acid and supplied by Rohm & Haas. Unfortunately, the highly acid nature of these types of binders can cause excessive corrosion of manufacturing plant unless significant investment is made in acid resistant equipment. U.S. Pat. No. 5,977,232 discloses a formaldehyde free binder for glass wool insulation based on a polycarboxylic acid. European patent application EP1698598A discloses use of a corrosion meter to try to mitigate problems associated with polycarboxylic acid-based fibreglass binder resins. In addition, whilst the strength of these binders is acceptable for some applications it is not as good as the commonly used phenol formaldehyde based binders.
  • It has not been thought possible to provide a formaldehyde free binder system useable on an industrial scale that will confer required characteristics, including strength, to mineral wool insulating products without encountering the difficulties associated with highly acidic liquid binder systems.
  • SUMMARY
  • According to one aspect, the present invention provides a packaged mineral fibre insulating material as defined in claim 1. Other aspects are defined in other independent claims. Preferred and/or alternative features are defined in the dependent claims.
  • DETAILED DESCRIPTION
  • As used herein, the term formaldehyde free means that the composition is substantially free from formaldehyde, preferably does not liberate substantial formaldehyde as a result of drying or curing and/or preferably comprises less than one part per million by weight of formaldehyde.
  • Desired characteristics to be conferred by the binder on some mineral wool insulation product can be assessed by measuring Recovered Thickness and/or Ordinary Parting Strength and/or Weathered Parting Strength. The procedures for measuring these characteristics are set out below. This is particularly the case for low and medium density insulating products, for example, having a density in the range 5-40 kg/m3, for example roll insulation and/or glass wool thermal insulation for lofts and/or cavity walls.
  • Desired characteristics for some mineral wool insulation product can be assessed by measuring Ordinary Compression Strength and/or Weathered Compression Strength. The procedures for measuring these characteristics are set out below. This is particularly for higher density insulating products, for example, insulating 5 boards or materials adapted for use as: a fire barrier; a fire protection; cladding for a building; a ceiling tile; a roof board; thermal insulation for high temperature machinery for example, generators, ovens and industrial plant. Such products may be made of rock wool.
  • The pH of the binder when applied may be substantially neutral or alkaline; this may facilitate handling and avoid significant corrosion and/or environmental problems. Its pH when applied may be: greater than or equal to 7 and/or less than or equal to 10; between 7 and 10; between 8 and 10.
  • An important aspect of the invention is the pH of the binder in liquid form when applied to the fibres as this is the form in which the binder will have significant contact with manufacturing equipment as freshly prepared and in a wash water system. The binder may change its pH as it cures; it may become more acidic as it cures. Nevertheless, once cured, the binder has less direct contact with the manufacturing equipment. Furthermore, where the cured binder is substantially insoluble in water, which is preferably the case, there is little risk of acid contamination from the cured binder.
  • It is surprising that binders of this type at 15% or less by weight can confer the desired characteristics on the insulating product. This amount of binder is comparable with the binder contents commonly used with phenol formaldehyde based binders. The cured binder content may be 12% or less or 10% or less; it may be within the range of 3-8%, particularly 3.5-6% by weight. The binder content may be determined by loss on ignition. Such binder contents are particularly suitable for low and medium density products. Particularly for higher density products, the cured binder content may be in the range 0.5-5% by weight.
  • The binder may:
      • be based on a reducing sugar; and/or
      • be based on reductosis; and/or
      • be based on an aldehyde containing sugars/and/or
      • include at least one reaction product of a carbohydrate reactant and an amine reactant; and/or
      • include at least one reaction product of a reducing sugar and an amine reactant; and/or
      • include at least one reaction product of a carbohydrate reactant and a polycarboxylic acid ammonium salt reactant; and/or
      • include at least one reaction product from a Maillard reaction.
  • The binder may be based on a combination of a polycarboxylic acid, for example citric acid, a sugar, for example dextrose, and a source of ammonia, for example ammonia solution. It may be based on a combination of ammonium citrate and dextrose. Where the binder is based on sugars and/or citric acid and or comprises significant —OH groups, it is particularly surprising that such levels of Weathered Parting Strength can be achieved. It would have been thought that the —OH groups for example in the sugars and/or citric acid would be readily subject to hydrolysis and that the binder would consequently loose significant strength in humid and/or weathering conditions.
  • The binder may comprise a silicon containing compound, particularly a silane; this may be an amino-substituted compound; it may be a silyl ether; it may facilitate adherence of the binder to the mineral fibres.
  • The binder may comprise melanoidins; it may be a thermoset binder; it may be thermally curable.
  • The binder may be one of those disclosed in International patent application No. PCT/US2006/028929, the contents of which is hereby incorporated by reference.
  • The insulating material may be packaged or be provided in the form of a package; the package may comprise one or more mineral wool insulating products arranged and/or bound together, for example to facilitate transport; it may comprise an enveloping film, for example of a plastics material. The package may comprise or consist of a roll of insulating material or an assembly of individual slabs of insulating material.
  • The insulating material, particularly when it is a low or medium density product, may have
      • a nominal thickness in the range 60-260 mm; and/or
      • a thermal resistance R of R≧3 m2K/W, preferably R≧4 m2K/W at a thickness or 200 mm; and/or
      • a density in the range 5-40 kg/m3, particularly 5-18 kg/m3 or 7-12 kg/m3, for example for low density roll products.
  • The insulating material, particularly when it is an insulating board or a higher density product, may have
      • a nominal thickness in the range 20 to 200 mm; and/or
      • a thermal resistance R of R≧1.7 m2K/W, preferably R≧2 m2K/W at a thickness of 100 mm; and/or
      • a density in the range 100 to 200 kg/m3, particularly 130 to 190 kg/m3.
  • The mineral fibres may be glass wool or rock wool; the fibres may have an average diameter between 2 and 9 microns or be microfibres of smaller diameter; they may have an average length between 8 and 80 mm.
  • The mineral fibres may be crimped.
  • According to a further aspect, the present invention provides a mineral fibre insulating material having at least one of the following features:
      • the insulating material having cut edges;
      • the insulating material having a facing provided on at least one of its major surface, for example comprising a moisture penetration barrier and/or a Kraft paper and/or an aluminium foil and/or a plastics layer and/or a laminate sheet comprising a plurality of individual layers and/or a woven or non-woven fabric; a facing may be provided on each major surface of the insulating material;
      • the insulating material being a packaged insulating material held under compression for example by one or more packaging components, for example by an enveloping packaging film; the insulating material may be compressed to 80% or less of its non-compressed thickness;
      • the insulating material being in the form of pipe insulation having a length of greater than 30 cm; the cross-section may be substantially annular;
      • the insulating material being in the form of a compressed roll of material;
      • the insulating material being in the form of a compressed slab of material;
      • the insulating material being a roll or slab having a length of greater than or equal to 1 m, preferably greater than or equal to 2 m;
      • the insulating material being a roll or slab having a width of greater than or equal to 0.3 m, preferably greater than or equal to 0.5 m;
      • the insulating material having a nominal thickness of at least 45 mm, preferably at least 50 mm, and a density in the range 5-40 kg/m3.
  • The insulating material may have any combination of these features; these features may be combined with other features and/or aspects described herein.

  • Testing of Recovered Thickness:
  • Recovered Thickness is tested and measured in accordance with Annex A of British standard BS EN 823: 1995 (incorporated herein by reference) and expressed as a % of the nominal or announced thickness for the product measured.
  • Testing of Ordinary Parting Strength and Weathered Parting Strength:
  • Parting strength is a measure of the tensile strength of mineral fibre mats determined by placing an O shaped sample over cylindrical jaws, separating the jaws and measuring the load to break the fibres. Although it can be measured in Newtons per gram, the parting strength is expressed in grams/gram being the total breaking load of six test specimens divided by their total weight.
  • The test is carried out on mineral fibre mats as received for testing (Ordinary Parting Strength) and after an accelerated weathering test as explained below (Weathered Parting Strength).
  • A first set of six samples of the form and dimensions shown in FIG. 1 are cut from the mineral fibre mat to be tested; the long axis of the samples should be parallel to the conveyor direction and the samples should be taken across the full width of the mineral mat. A second set of six samples is then taken in the same way. The dimensions in FIG. 1 are in mm.
  • The total weight of the first group of six samples W1 in grams is recorded.
  • The total weight of the second group of six samples W2 in grams is recorded; these samples are then placed in a preheated autoclave and conditioned on a wire mesh shelf away from the bottom of the chamber under wet steam at 35 kN/m2 for one hour. They are then removed, dried in an oven at 100° C. for five minutes and tested immediately for parting strength.
  • To test the parting strength, each sample is mounted in turn on the jaws of the tensile strength machine and the maximum breaking load in grams or Newtons is recorded. If the breaking load is measured in Newtons it is converted to grams by multiplying it by 101.9. Six results in grams are obtained for each set of samples: G1 G2 G3 G4 G5 and G6 for the first set of samples and G7 G8 G9 G10 G11 and G12 for the second set of samples.
  • The Ordinary Parting Strength is calculated from the first set of samples using the formula Ordinary Parting Strength=(G1+G2+G3+G4+G5+G6)/W1.
  • The Weathered Parting Strength is calculated from the second set of samples using the formula Weathered Parting Strength=(G7+G8+G9+G10+G11+G12)/W2.
  • In another example, an aqueous binder was prepared by mixing together:
  • Approximate %
    by weight
    Powdered dextrose monohydrate 19.1%
    Powdered anhydrous citric acid  3.4%
    28% aqueous ammonia  2.6%
    Silane A-1100 0.07%
    water 73.5%
  • This binder was used in the manufacture of a rock wool roof board on a standard manufacturing line, the binder being sprayed onto the fibres just after fiberising and the coated fibres being collected, assembled in to a mat, compressed and cured in the usual way.
  • The cured roof board had:
      • a binder content of about 3% by weight as determined by loss on ignition
      • a thickness of about 80 mm
      • a density of about 150 kg/m3
  • It was packaged as part of a stack of insulation boards.
