Frequently Asked Questions

Mineral Wool

What is the minimum amount of wool I can order?

Wool is sold only as full pallets, unless otherwise noted with the product.

What is the waiting time for mineral wool delivery?

Next to each item, directly on the product card you will see information about the approximate delivery time. If you have additional questions, please contact us.

What is the delivery cost?

You can check the cost of delivery when you add an item to your cart. However, it is not displayed with all goods. The cost itself depends on several factors: the type of product, the quantity ordered, the place where we are to deliver the goods. If you have questions, please contact us.

Can I pay for the goods upon delivery?

Unfortunately, there is no such possibility because we do not send products cash on delivery. Transportation of goods is carried out by shipping companies and not by courier services, which are not authorized to collect cash from the customer. We also do not offer such a service because the logistics process is too complex, in case the customer does not collect the goods.


What is a cement-bonded particle board?

Betonyp is a general construction board that is made using wood shavings, portland-cement, water and a small amount of additives depending on the intended use of the boards, and then the whole mixture is fed under a press that gives the final form to the boards.

Where can I use cement-bonded particle board?

Used in many branches of industry and construction, slabs are also increasingly finding their way into the interior design industry, where they fit perfectly into the canon of modern construction. The combination of environmentally friendly materials - wood chips and cement - ensures above-average mechanical strength and resistance to fire and water.
Floors and facades made from Betonyp panels are resistant to mould, fungi, rodents and insects, and the even and smooth surface provides an ideal base for insulation, plaster and facade paint. Increasingly used, permanent shuttering is gradually replacing traditional methods, as it does not require dismantling and forms a monolithic surface with the building structure. The versatility of the panels makes it possible, in many cases, to dispense with gypsum boards or OSB, which are susceptible to water and not resistant to fire.

How should cement-bonded particleboards be stored?

Depending on the intended use, the boards should be stored in a dry and sunless place, and if the boards are used in a decorative form, dirt and sudden changes in temperature and humidity should be avoided - this can cause changes in the colour of the board. We advise against storing the boards in areas where screeds or wet plaster have been recently applied. Store the boards on the pallet as long as possible without removing the fixing tapes.
After unpacking the pallet and cutting the fixing tapes, the boards must be laid flat and the top layer should be weighted down to avoid a "curling" effect.
If a dry screed floor is made, the panels should be glued or screwed together using panel-to-panel screws.

Method of installation

The boards are machined in the factory using circular saws fitted with hardwood wides. Contractors use wood saws and jigsaws with "Hard wood" saw blades to cut the boards - The boards do not require special tools for processing, although cutting cement-bonded chipboard may accelerate the wear of discs and saw blades due to the cement content. The multitude of machining options allows the boards to be used by a wide range of users, regardless of their equipment

Examples of applications

Plastered soffits
Cement boards are ideal for plastered soffits as they do not require additional polystyrene gluing or surface preparation as in the case of OSB. The betonyp is cut to size and then screwed to the joists or frame with screws - the screws are selected according to the bearing material, e.g. carpentry screws when screwing to the rafters. The next stage is priming and possible filling of joints with mortar when we want to put plaster already on the board itself. Primers, joint compounds and plasters should be selected by the building chemistry manufacturer.

Dry lining
Floors, partitions and acoustic walls, as well as areas with increased humidity. The stiffness, high density and ease of processing and water resistance allow the boards to be used in the most demanding areas of internal construction. Floors made from Betonyp feature increased sound insulation and are the ideal material for underfloor heating. Partition walls and so-called drywalls made with the panels are ideal for use under tiles in wet rooms, and as quiet partition walls due to the high density of the panels (1350 ± 75 kg/m3).

Frame construction and ventilated facades
Modern construction is increasingly turning to classic, industrial materials dominated by shades of grey and, in the loft variety, black with additions of copper and gold. The rough finish and weather resistance - 24 h swell ≥ 1.5 % and class 3 biological durability - make cement-bonded chipboard the ideal cladding material for modern ventilated façades. Available in a size of 1250x800x10 mm, the panels are easy to handle, do not require heavy equipment for installation and the common thickness makes them suitable for a large range of façade systems or even simple lock bolt installation.

Fences and balustrades
As with ventilated facades, the durability of the panels makes them successful for use as fences and balustrades, and the modern yet classic concrete structure fits perfectly into any type of construction. Mounting methods encountered in this case include various types of manufacturers' systems, screws, locking screws and self-drilling screws in the case of steel construction.

Permanent formwork
Very popular in the west, and gaining in popularity in Poland, formwork is a safe, fast and waste-free solution used by the largest construction companies in Europe. The use of panels significantly reduces the time needed to prepare the structure, and eliminates the need for time-consuming dismantling. All the aforementioned advantages, together with the possibility of prefabrication and simplicity of execution, make formwork made of cement-bonded chipboard one of the best possible solutions available on the market.

Boiler rooms and fireplace surrounds
A non-obvious but common application for Betonyp panels, due to their B-s1 fire resistance classification, is the finishing treatment of fireplaces, fireplaces or boiler rooms.

Roof flashings
Anyone who has been on a building site at least once during the construction of roof slopes has seen that full formwork or even chimney flashings are often made of OSB or MFP boards, which, despite their flammability and susceptibility to moisture, are used by contractors because of their ease of processing and price. Often, it is the builders who suggest cement chipboard to their contractors, as they rightly consider it to be a better and more durable material. The use of Betonyp boards guarantees the weather resistance of the slope, and the B-1s fire classification places them much higher than popular chipboard.

Hall cladding
The requirements for building halls and utility buildings present contractors with challenges, which we have already met on more than one occasion using Betonyp panels. Meeting fire requirements or achieving REI parameters are among the many applications for cement-bonded particleboards. High density, fire resistance class, good acoustic classification, all confirmed by a TVB test certificate and declaration of performance, which are available to everyone.
