Rockwool Plant Tour and Presentation: Designing for Moisture Control Using Stone Wool Insulation

***Limited Capacity, Registration closes May 3rd***

ROCKWOOL's Ranson factory utilizes industry-leading melting and emissions abatement technologies, including ROCKWOOL’s award-winning fuel-flexible melting technology that makes it possible for the factory to start operations using natural gas instead of coal.

Designing for Moisture Control Using Stone Wool Insulation:

This CEU course will discuss how stone wool insulation can be used as exterior insulation to assist with moisture management. This presentation will showcase modeling results that demonstrate the impact of different materials when it comes to moisture control. In addition, in-situ case studies will be highlighted that demonstrate the performance of stone wool insulation in exterior applications.

Learning Objectives:

  • Understand moisture control building science fundamentals.

  • Understand how stone wool can be used in exterior wall applications.

  • Make informed decisions about the appropriate rain control and vapor control strategies for wall assemblies.

  • Review in-situ examples of stone wool performance attributes.
