Kingspan Kooltherm Foil-Faced Phenolic Pipe Insulation 15mm thick 1-metre length
Kingspan Kooltherm premium performance pipe insulation is one of the thinnest and most efficient products available for the insulation of pipework in building services / HVAC applications. It is available in a range of thicknesses to suit different performance specifications and may be used on mild steel, stainless steel, carbon steel, copper and plastic pipework.
Kingspan Kooltherm has Industry Leading Thermal Performance Properties:
With a 25 year aged thermal conductivity as low as 0.025 W/m·K (at 10°C mean), Kooltherm Pipe Insulation is one of the most thermally efficient insulation material commonly used. A low thermal conductivity allows specified thermal performance standards to be achieved with thinner insulation.
This superior performance derives mainly from its closed cell properties. Its closed cell structure has been optimised to resist heat transfer. The closed cells have a small solid to void volume ratio, are small and uniform in size, and their construction very fine with extremely thin walls and minimum point contacts (struts). They are filled with a thermally efficient CFC/HCFC-free blowing agent that has zero Ozone Depletion Potential (ODP) and low Global Warming Potential (GWP). As a result of its closed cell, fibre free structure, Kooltherm Pipe Insulation is unaffected by air infiltration – problems that can be experienced with mineral fibre and which can reduce thermal performance.
Kooltherm Pipe Insulation products and systems have a densely cross-linked structure that makes them difficult to ignite and when subjected to fire, the outer surface forms a strong carbonaceous layer that limits heat generation and retards further flame spread.
The excellent fire and smoke performance characteristics of Kooltherm Pipe Insulation products and systems clearly demonstrate their suitability for the designated application, with best in class European Reaction to Fire performance of BL,s1,d0. Kooltherm FM Pipe Insulation is FM Approved per Approval Standard Class 4924
Kooltherm Pipe Insulation has a 90% (or greater) closed cell structure, which makes it non-wicking and highly resistant to moisture penetration. The risk of moisture absorption into the insulation is effectively eliminated as the factory-applied facing to Kooltherm Pipe Insulation products and systems provides a high-performance vapour barrier jacket.
