What Is Armacell Made Of?

AP/ArmaFlex Insulation Tape is made of the same high-quality elastomeric insulation as AP/ArmaFlex sheet material.

What Material Is Armaflex?

Armaflex LTD is a flexible, high density and mechanically robust, closed cell cryogenic thermal insulation material based on extruded elastomeric foam.

What Is Elastomeric Insulation?

Closed Cell Elastomeric Thermal Insulation for HVAC & R. General. Tube Insulation is a highly flexible, closed-cell and lightweight EPDM-rubber based elastomeric product. Aerocel-SSPT® Tube Insulation is designed for insulating warm or cold piping, duct, or equipment.

What Type Of Insulation Is Armaflex?

AP Armaflex® Pipe Insulation is a closed cell, fiber-free elastomeric thermal insulation. It is manufactured without the use of CFC’s, HFC’s or HCFC’s. All AP Armaflex® products are made with Microban® antimicrobial product protection for added defense against mold on the insulation.

What Is The R Value Of Armaflex Pipe Insulation?

It is simply the thickness of the insulation (in metres) divided by the thermal conductivity of the insulation. For example a 25mm-thick sheet of Armaflex® with a thermal conductivity of 0.035 W/(m·K) has an R-value equal to 0.71.

Is Armaflex Waterproof?

Armaflex is water resistant but not described as water proof I don’t cover it and haven’t seen any that has soak up water. Re: Is Armaflex waterproof? Its closed cell which means loads of enclosed bubbles. It doesnot absorb water like a sponge but it can eventually work its way into the bubbles.

Is Armaflex Plenum Rated?

AP Armaflex Pipe Insulation is used to retard heat gain and control condensation drip from chilled- water and refrigeration systems. AP Armaflex Insulation is acceptable in wall thicknesses through 1-1/2″ for use in air plenums. Conforms to NFPA 90A and NFPA 90B requirements.

Can You Paint Armaflex?

White Paintable Insulation Coating ArmaFlex WB Finish is a white, water-based, 100% acrylic coating supplied in gallon or quart containers for use over all forms of ArmaFlex insulations. ArmaFlex WB Finish adheres to clean ArmaFlex surfaces and dries to a pliant coating.

Who Makes Armaflex?

Armacell offers the original closed-cell foam insulation systems for plumbing — commercial and residential. Since 1953 AP ArmaFlex® has been THE preferred flexible elastomeric insulation for commercial plumbing pipes.

Can You Bury Foam Pipe Insulation?

The leading product for underground use is Armaflex Tuffcoat. This industry leading underground insulation is based on Armaflex Class O Nitrile Foam insulation which has an additional wrap-around self-seal plastic coating. Just place the insulation around your pipe, close the seal and that’s it!

What Is K Flex Insulation?

K-FLEX® INSUL-SHEET® is a flexible, closed-cell elastomeric sheet insulation product used to conserve energy and prevent condensation on large pipes, ducts (covers), vessels, tanks and equipment. For added protection, K-FLEX® INSUL-SHEET® is protected with an EPA-approved antimicrobial agent.

Is Armaflex Insulation Fire Rated?

Sheet and Roll Insulation For applications requiring fire and smoke ratings of 25/50, AP ArmaFlex FS (Flame Spread)meets ASTM E 84 at 25/50 for 1-1/2” and 2” thicknesses. Moisture-resistant AP ArmaFlex, however, maintains its physical and thermal integrity – for the life of the mechanical system!

Is Armaflex Fire Rated?

In its dry state, ArmaFlex 520 adhesive is not flammable. The adhesive is particularly suitable for joining ArmaFlex flexible elastomeric insulation and for bonding the material to clean surfaces.

What Is Nbr Insulation?

Nitrile rubber insulation is a very versatile and flexible insulation. It is a closed cell elastomeric insulation and is resistant to water vapour, oil and most acids. Because of its flexibility it is ideal for insulating vessels, curved or irregular shapes.

What Is Phenolic Insulation?

Phenolic insulation is manufactured by a process in which a plastic foam forms an insulating core between two flexible tissue faced layers. It has a high closed cell content and fine cell structure. Rigid phenolic insulation is produced by mixing high solids and phenolic resin with a surface acting agent.

What Is Cellular Glass Insulation?

FOAMGLAS® cellular glass insulation is a lightweight, rigid, and durable material composed of completely sealed glass cells. It’s non-combustible, provides superior compressive strength, moisture resistance, dimensional stability, and offers long lasting thermal performance.
