Knauf Rocksilk 60mm RS45 Slab
Knauf Rocksilk RS45 Slab – 60mm is a high-performance insulation solution that is designed to provide excellent thermal and acoustic performance in a wide range of applications. The insulation slab is made from non-combustible mineral wool and is designed to be used in various industrial, commercial, and residential settings.
Knauf uses ECOSE Technology, which is an innovative, new, formaldehyde free binder technology, centred on rapidly renewable materials instead of petro-based chemicals. It lessens embodied energy and provides superior environmental sustainability. ECOSE Technology was developed for glass and rock mineral wool insulation, but offers the same potential advantages to other products where resin-substitution would be an advantage, such as in wood-based panels, abrasives and friction materials.
The benefits of using Knauf Rocksilk 60mm RS45 Slab
Excellent Thermal Performance – Knauf Rocksilk RS45 60mm Slab has a thermal conductivity of 0.035 W/mK, which makes it an excellent choice for applications that require high levels of insulation.

Easy to Handle and Install – RS45 Knauf Rocksilk Slab – 60mm is easy to handle and install, making it an ideal choice for both new construction and retrofit projects. This can help to reduce installation time and labour costs. Mineral Wool products are easier to install correctly when compared to other insulants like rigid PIR boards because they adapt to any slight imperfections in the substrate and knit together, preventing any air gaps. Evidence shows the absence of air gaps is crucial to achieving the full thermal potential.
How to Install Knauf Rocksilk 60mm RS45 Slab
Installing Knauf Rocksilk RS45 Slab is a relatively straightforward process that can be completed by experienced builders or insulation contractors. Here are the general steps involved in installing Knauf Rocksilk RS45 Slab – 60mm:
- Prepare the Work Area – The work area should be cleaned and free of any debris or obstacles. The insulation should be stored in a dry, protected area until it is ready to be installed.
- Measure and Cut the Insulation – Measure the area where the insulation will be installed and cut the insulation to the appropriate size using a sharp knife or insulation saw. Be sure to wear protective gloves and eye gear during this process to avoid injury.
- Install the Insulation – Place the insulation in the area where it will be installed, ensuring that it is tightly packed and properly secured. Use a stapler or adhesive tape to hold the insulation in place.
- Seal Any Gaps – Once the insulation is installed, seal any gaps or cracks with a suitable sealant to prevent air leaks and improve energy efficiency.
- Finish the Installation – Once the insulation is installed and sealed, the work area can be finished as desired. For example, drywall or other finishing materials can be installed over the insulation to complete the wall or ceiling.
It is important to follow all safety guidelines and manufacturer instructions when installing Knauf Rocksilk RS45 Slab – 60mm. Protective gear, such as gloves and eye protection, should always be worn during installation to avoid injury.
