XLPE Polyolefin Foam Insulation



Calling it the latest insulation material which has been approved by the HVAC industry for thermal insulation of ducts and pipes XPE range of cross-linked polyolefin insulation material. According to the manufacturer, the material is reinforced with a heat laminated reinforced aluminum vapour barrier. XPE range a cost-effective alternative to traditional insulation materials.

  • • It comes in self-adhesive sheets, rolls and pipe sections and does not require any additional covering after installation for both indoor and outdoor applications.
  • • It has a lower thermal conductivity compared to other insulating materials, such as fiberglass and NBR insulation, enabling a lower thickness of foam to be used in various applications.
  • • It is suitable for space-constrained installations.
  • • The product is rated Class 1 as per BS 476, Part 7 test standard.
  • • It has no toxic fumes when subject to flame. These properties have been tested as per BS 6853:1999, and IMO Resolution MSC 61 (67): 1996.
  • • The almost zero water vapour permeability and water absorption make the product itself to be considered a vapour barrier as per ASHRAE and British standards.
  • • It is CFC and HCFC-free, and does not contain nor use in its production any substances that contribute to Ozone Depletion Potential.
