Flame resistent Insulation
Sea balls, are nothing more than the remains signs of algae (Posidonia oceanica) aggregated by sea surf and found on beaches that are located in the Mediterranean, especially Sicily and Tunisia. By nature they are proved to be non- flammable and have a thermal conductivity of 0.037 up to 0.049 watts per meter-Kelvin. This makes them very attractive for construction. Sea balls, are also not subject to decay because they contain few salts and proteins. After submitting this material to various physical tests, its fibres, which are suitable to be used as insulation in construction and automotive industries, have landed in the marketplace with the name of neptutherm.
