Ligno-Cellulosic Insulation Boards of Improved Performance and the Technology of their Manufacture
Summary of Doctoral Thesis
Inga Zotova, Riga Technical University, Latvia
In the Thesis, prototypes of insulating boards from agricultural and woodworking by-products and technology for their production were developed. Low-density insulation boards for indoor spaces were produced by varying their structure and the amount of phase change materials in the board up to 15 %. The usage of carbamide resin binder for cold pressing reduces energy consumption, and the produced boards have a number of advantages compared to those currently used in practice, such as high heat capacity at low material thickness, good sound absorption, and flammability class.
