Insulation Adhesives Are Not Created Equal

Wet-applied adhesives formulated to install closed-cell elastomeric foam insulation on mechanical systems, such as HVAC, refrigeration, and plumbing piping and equipment, are also known as special-purpose contact adhesives.

The Purpose of Pipe Insulation

The Purpose of Pipe Insulation

The evolution of thermal insulation dates back to prehistoric times when people gathered natural materials to insulate their shelters and clothing. It was not until the industrial revolution of the early 20th century that artificial thermal insulation materials, like pipe insulation, were developed due to their favorable durability, fire and water resistance. The term insulate…

Why Specify Flexible Elastomeric Pipe Insulation?

Why Specify Flexible Elastomeric Pipe Insulation?

Flexible elastomeric pipe insulation has been available in the United States since the early 1950s. Essentially, flexible elastomeric pipe insulation is a synthetic rubber composed of closed-cell structure available in factory-made tubes, sheets or rolls. The outer edge consists of a smooth surface or “skin” which serves as a built-in vapor retarder. Due to flexible…
