The product MIKRON is made of 100% polyster fibre.The fibres are of different deniers and are thermally bonded with the presence of low melt fibres.No chemical is used at any stage of the process to bind the fibres. Since there is total absence of any chemical agent for the binding, the product is 100% fire retardant. It does not catch fire even if there is a source of flame adjoining or touching it. The material would just shrink away without giving any odours since it is 100% thermally bonded. MIKRON is a world class insulation product manufactured in India. It is made of fine, long, polyster fibres of various deniers thermally bonded by low melt fibres and is widely recognized for its energy conserving and sound absorption/thermal insulation properties. It possesses high absorbent values by virtue of its low fibre diameter, consistent fibre distribution and homogeneous density. MIKRON provides efficient insulation at a very nominal cost. Besides providing sound absorption, it also reduces the thermal radiation. It saves in the capital and operating costs of the acoustic treatments and air conditioned systems. Its application is versatile. It can be applied over/under false ceilings, under concrete roofs, between asbestos sheets etc. The product has an open cell structure which is a prerequisite for a sound absorbent material and since there is no chemical involved at any stage of production, there is no chemically binded layer in the product which could close its open cell structure.
ADVANTAGES EASY TO HANDLE:- Fibres do not come off easily from the material. Due to inherent production process, the fibres are bonded so well that they form a uniform layer and do not fly off while handling. Such is not in the case of glasswool or rockwool as their fibres come out where the strength of the chemical (Resin) is less and the fibre glass (glass wool) disintegrates rapidly if the chemical binding agent (Resin) is not there which often happens as the Resin cannot be applied on uniform basis . 100% FIRE RETARDANT:- Since there are no chemical agents involved in the manufacturing process at any time, MIKRON is 100% fire retardant. There is no fire propagation with no emission of smoke or any toxic gases. EASY INSTALLATION:- The product can be easily installed underdeck, on the walls and in and on the ducting by just pasting it with any adhesive e.g bostick etc. It does not require any framework (wooden or aluminium structure) to support it . A staggered vertical framework of wooden battons/GI channels is required only for the lining boards. No glasscloth / polythene lined hessian cloth is required for covering MIKRON. Neither are any GI wires or chicken mesh required to hold the material in position. However the chicken wire mesh may be provided to save the material from manual fiddling.This results in considerable savings and cutting in costs of the insulation treatment. NON-ALLERGIC & NON CARCINOGENIC:- MIKRON is totally hygienic and non-allergic since no chemical processing is involved in the manufacturing process. It can be applied with bare hands and does not leave any itchy feeling to the users of it. No gloves are required for handling it and it is 100% non-carcinogenic, thereby making it very user friendly. LONG LASTING:- MIKRON lasts for a long time and does not need frequent replacements. LIGHTWEIGHT:- It is extremely lightweight and flexible and easy to assemble. No extra aluminium foil layer is required along with MIKRON. MIKRON does not retain water and dries quickly if wetted by accident. It is stable under varying conditions of temperature and humidity. It is not prone to sagging or settling. MIKRON is inorganic. It does not encourage the growth of fungi and vermin. MIKRON is chemically inert. Its application does not cause or accelerate corrosion. It is rot proof and odourless.
