Explanation:
There appears to be a typo in the Spanish text, with "marinita" the intended word.

According to the following web site (and about 170 others), Marinite structural insulation is a non-asbestos, incombustible material, used as both thermal and electrical insulation, and rated up to 600°F.

It makes a great deal of sense in the context of your document...
