Abstract

The project envisages energy savings in the heating of civil and industrial buildings with the use of improved insulating materials, e.g. waterproofed against humidity and water vapour and protected against the attack of polluting agents in the atmosphere, by means of bituminous products. The research aims at the utilisation of any kind of granular or fibriform insulating material, where each individual element is completely coated with an impermeable and protective bituminous binder. The latter, as it also binds the elements together, makes possible the manufacture of insulating panels. The coating and manufacturing process can be performed by thoroughly mixing the insulating material with a relatively hot bitumen or with a cold bituminous emulsion and by pressing the mixture so as to form suitable panels. The report covers both the hot and the cold process, as well as the technical characterisation of the bituminous heat insulating panels obtained.
