Resin-bonded, semi-rigid high temperature resistant mineral wool boards/slabs. The board is supplied plain, however on request it can be faced with reinforced kraft/aluminium foil. Applications include thermal insulation of process plant and equipment, suitable for application on flat or slightly curved surfaces, suitable for increasing the fire resistance of lightweight building elements e.g. partition walls.
Our aesthetically pleasing product has excellent thermal insulating values, thereby creating a more comfortable environment to live and work in. These insulation properties make it ideal for insulating roofs, ceilings

Isolite (EPS) is a material which is used extensively in the building and construction industry as insulation, and has
many attributes, not least of which is its proven safety record during all stages of its life cycle – from production,
during use, through to re-use or recycling. It is not surprising that health and safety take top priority in the building
and construction industry and the one material that performs well is EPS, whose physical properties make it ideal for specification.
Two Cape Town buildings that incorporate drywall systems and raise interior construction standards will be showcased by the South African representatives of Saint-Gobain Gyproc. The first is Zeitz MOCAA and the second is the Silo Hotel.
When it comes to material selection, weight is a limiting factor in heritage site projects and it’s particularly important to keep structural load to a minimum. A drywall that is ten times lighter than traditional walls was used, assembled with noggins, load-bearing studs and tracks to reinforce additional strength.
The development of Silo Hotel, located above the Zeitz Mocca, features a variety of Saint-Gobain Gyproc plasterboard materials that contain sustainability, comfort and safety properties. Selecting the right materials for the hotel and detailing product systems that would add the most value to the building, was a major part of Saint-Gobain’s contribution to the project.
