Glass fibers are spun very thinly providing a light-stable binder and woven into a very light and translucent fiber glass matting (Glasgespinst). The air trapped in the fiber-glass wool ensures very good thermal insulation. Compared to the TIMax® CA honeycomb, this fiber-glass fleece has lower light transmission however much stronger light-diffusing properties. This results in glare-free and even distribution of light. In summer, this good solar protection reduces heat gain (low g-value).
The fiber-glass wool can be installed in one or more layers, depending on the desired u-value and light transmission. TIMax® GF10 is used in translucent structures such as skylight strips, membrane roofing, wood-frame facades, or wooden post-and-beam construction.
