Roxul AFB's combination of stone fiber and recycled content makes this insulation fire resistant. This non-combustible product does not develop smoke or promote flam spread when exposed to flame, making AFB a critical line of defense in fire protection. In fact, studies have proven that stone or mineral fiber insulations provide a 54% increase in overall fire resistance rating compared to non-insulated assemblies.
Roxul AFB will not absorb water or hold moisture. In fact, its stone fiber composition is ideal for repelling and draining water away from walls and studs, protecting them. AFB's fire resistance and sound control properties are never comprised by water or moisture. Ideally AFB will not corrode and it does not promote fungi or bacteria growth.
