Outside Diameters for Jacketing of Aerocel® EPDM Pipe Insulation

Outside Diameters for Jacketing of Aerocel® EPDM Pipe Insulation

Jacketing of Aerocel EPDM pipe insulation is often specified by mechanical engineers to protect the insulation from mechanical damage, to shield from direct UV exposure, to serve as an additional water vapor barrier and for aesthetic purposes. Download the full technical bulletin here to view the outside diameters (OD’s) of all available sizes of Aerocel…

Heat Tracing Systems with Aerocel® EPDM Closed Cell Elastomeric Insulation

Heat Tracing Systems with Aerocel® EPDM Closed Cell Elastomeric Insulation

Heat tracing systems, typically composed of electrical tapes & cables, are commonly installed directly on piping systems to increase or maintain the line temperature of pipes and vessels with low or no flow, ultimately in an effort to provide freeze protection.

Provide Exterior Protection and Meet Mandatory Energy Codes on Exterior Cellular Foam Insulation Applications

Provide Exterior Protection and Meet Mandatory Energy Codes on Exterior Cellular Foam Insulation Applications

Aerocel EPDM flexible closed-cell elastomeric insulation, also known as cellular foam, is inherently UV-resistant. Unlike traditional nitrile butadiene rubber (NBR)/PVC cellular foam rubber products, the application of a supplemental coating is not required to protect EPDM insulation from UV degradation for outdoor applications.

The Critical Role of Special Purpose Contact Adhesives in Mechanical Insulation Applications

The Critical Role of Special Purpose Contact Adhesives in Mechanical Insulation Applications

Adhesives specified for installation of flexible closed-cell elastomeric foam insulation on piping, duct, and other-equipment in HVAC, refrigeration and plumbing systems play an integral role in the success and the longevity of insulation systems.

Chemical Polarity of Closed-Cell Elastomeric Foam Insulation

Chemical Polarity of Closed-Cell Elastomeric Foam Insulation

Closed-cell structured elastomeric foam insulation is widely recognized for its consistent performance managing thermal heat gain/loss and preventing condensation. But did you know that there are actually two different types of closed-cell elastomeric foam rubber used in the manufacture of insulation?

Best Practices For Direct Burial Of Aerocel® EPDM Insulation

Best Practices For Direct Burial Of Aerocel® EPDM Insulation

When flexible closed-cell elastomeric thermal pipe insulation is considered for a direct-bury application, Aeroflex USA recommends the best practice of encasing Aerocel EPDM pipe insulation in a protective conduit such as properly sealed PVC pipe, corrugated drainpipe or poured concrete for long-term service.
