Materials that slow down the transfer of heat are known as insulators. Examples of insulators include: glass, ceramics, oil, fibre glass, rubber and asphalt, among others. Heat travels through objects by radiation, conduction and convection with the rate of travels depending on the constituent nature of the material itself.
