Thermal Insulation


Launched for Marine & Offshore in 2006, the U SeaProtect range provides marine thermal insulation adapted to a wide range of applications for cruise ships, offshore platforms and OEM marine constructions.

This high-performance mineral wool combines excellent thermal insulation properties with effective fire protection and a much lower weight (up to 40% lighter compared to light weight stone wool).

  • Thermal performance
  • Unique lightness
  • Maximum compressibility
  • Comfortable installation
  • Maximum flexibility
  • Fire protection

Why are effective thermal insulation materials so important?
Much of your ship’s total energy consumption is linked to the energy consumed by your HVAC (Heating Ventilation and Air Conditioning) system - it represents as much as 35% for cruise ships. Opting for solutions with superior thermal insulation properties for your walls and ducts guarantees increased passenger comfort while lower operating costs.

ULTIMATE™ mineral wool products have excellent thermal insulation properties due to their unique internal microstructure: 100% fiberized insulation mats, completely free of slugs. For the same thickness, U SeaProtect products achieve equivalent or better thermal insulation than lightweight  stone-wool products, while being up to 40% lighter. 

A full range of thermal insulation materials
U SeaProtect thermal insulation materials can be used for a wide range of applications from bulkhead and deck insulation to OEM, HVAC and piping solutions. The 3 main types of insulation product (rolls, slabs and wired mat) with different thicknesses and densities can be combined with a choice of facings and tapes depending on your needs.
