Its varied applications include use as heat insulation in the walls of buildings and as a heat-insulating structural material for building partitions and filling in the wooden framework of walls. Fibrolit has a coefficient of thermal conductivity of 0.08–0.23 watts/m·°K and a strength under bending of 0.4–1.1 meganewtons/m2.
