Rockwool Comfortboard 80 crashes through the mundane world of building insulation like a rock star on tour, bringing with it a non-combustible, fire-stopping party that leaves behind no smoke or flame in its wake – holding its own at a scorching 1177°C (2150°F).

Its vapor-permeable getup (30 perms) allows walls to breathe easier than a yogi, ensuring moisture doesn’t overstay its welcome, while also playing bouncer by repelling water and denying entry to mold or mildew looking to crash the party.

Dimensionally stable against the odds and reducing thermal groupies from sucking the life out of your energy efficiency, it cranks up the volume on thermal performance and dials down the noise, bringing sweet acoustic harmony. Crafted with up to 40% recycled content because even insulation can rock a green lifestyle, and contributing to LEED points, it’s as easy to install as a backstage pass, chemically inert, and struts a CFC- and HCFC-free vibe. Its superior load and deflection performance makes it the main act in a variety of applications including those cathedral ceilings rocking the residential skyline, laying down a solid foundation with exterior perimeter insulation, and keeping it cool under flat concrete slabs, among others.

Rockwool Comfortboard 80 promises a comfortable consistent indoor environment where the only thing extreme is the resilience against climate’s greatest hits, ensuring a safer built environment with its top-tier fire and thermal performance encore. The encore of this sustainable manufacturing process underscores a commitment to environmental responsibility while dialing up economic value through long-lasting, durable savings that make accountants headbang in approval. Striking a chord in the construction industry, Comfortboard 80 leads the exterior insulation world tour, setting the stage ablaze with new standards in safety, sustainability, and acoustic performance.
