Insulation materials in combination with NedZink roof and façade coverings are generally used for thermal insulation. As a further application it can be used for sound protection and sound insulation. Apart from the classical built up for insulation in a rear ventilated construction, nowadays a non ventilated vapour-tight structure is also applied.

In combination with NedZink roofing or cladding material the installation of a permanently functioning vapour barrier below the insulation and a spacing separating layer above the insulation is required.

There is a large variety of insulation systems and materials. Whether mineral fibre, rigid foam, foamglas or other material is use as insulation, depends on the object and requirements needed both constructional and physical.
