Abstract

This paper summarizes the experimental work carried out at the Material technologies Laboratory of the ENEA Trisaia Research Centre (UTTRI-TEM) for the energy performance characterization of basalt fiber panels with different thicknesses. In particular, the determination of the thermal conductivity with the heat flow meter methods, (in accordance with UNI EN 12667:2002), the determination of the physical characteristics of the material, such as compressive strength (in accordance with UNI EN 826:2013), the absorption of water in the short term (according to standard EN 1609). The final data may be used for a comparative evaluation of basalt fiber with traditional insulating materials and will be the basis for a future development of new panel, based on basalt fiber, able to guarantee thermal conductivity values lower than those existing with substantially contained economic costs.
