The study provides two kinds of construction methods for the system which are rendering and anchoring. In general, galvanizing steel-meshwork using machine anchors could use all kinds of rock-wool panel made in China. The interface mortar used for rock-wool could protect workers' hands and improve the integrity and anti-crackness of the system. Both of these two kinds of rock-wool systems could resolve the difficulties of current rock-wool panel application in outer-wall external thermal insulation system. The rock-wool external thermal insulation which has surfficient fire-proof capability could apply in many kinds of buildings, especially high-rise buildings. © (2013) Trans Tech Publications, Switzerland.
