Application of Thermal Insulation Ceiling by Fiberboard

Peeteenut Triwong



This article present the possibility of applying the fiberboard functioned as a gypsum thermal insulation ceiling. Since
the gypsum is highly toxic and hard to be decomposed. Parawood was experimented in term of its physical, mechanical and thermal properties comparing to the gypsum board. It was found that the thermal conductivity is much less than that of the gypsum board up to 7 times with a higher mechanical strength. This shows that the Parawood is also a good thermal insulation. However, it is very sensitive the humidity therefore it is not suitable for the wet or moist area.
