Polyethylene foam is used predominantly in pipework systems, air conditioning systems and chilled and hot water piping. Industrial Insulation Supplies distributes Flexicell XLPE™ polyethylene foam.
Looking for protection against condensation and heat loss? How may you ask?
Let’s first learn about what exactly is polyethylene insulation and how it is the best solution to protect all your chilled water/hot water pipework systems and air conditioning duct work. Flexicell XLPE Tube is a cross linked closed cell polyolefin foam insulation which is factory bonded using heat to pure aluminium foil eliminating the use of traditional adhesives.
Provided Flexicell XLPE is installed correctly you don’t need to worry about corrosion under insulation.
Independently tested and certified to meet international and local requirements for thermal conductivity, fire performance and toxicity.
Does not release fibres, will not support fungi or bacterial growth, and does not use CFC’s or HCFC’s in its production with zero (GWP) global warming potential
Flexicell XLPE Polyethylene is easy to use and aesthetically pleasing.
Having significantly lower thermal conductivity compared to traditional insulation systems, Flexicell XPLE is the preferred choice for pipe and duct insulation in the commercial HVAC and building industries. It provides the superior thermal performance reducing the running cost of system to which it is installed.
When you insulate your chilled or hot water pipes, you have to spend less on energy costs. Insulating hot water pipes prevents heat loss from the surroundings. Similarly, insulating cold water pipes prevents condensation.
Pipework including air conditioning, chilled and hot water pipes in commercial buildings left un-insulated can be extremely expensive to run, insulating these systems with Flexicell XLPE will save you thousands of dollars in energy use over the lifetime of the system. To increase the life of your building’s heating and cooling systems, you need proper insulation that not only provides you with energy reduction and cost savings, you also look after our environment by reducing the buildings carbon footprint.
