Aerocel® ULP® Ultra-Low Permeance


Aerocel ULP offers exceptionally low water transmission, and is a flexible alternative to cellular glass. With a wide temperature operating range, it can be specified for many types of liquid piping systems, from hot water process piping to cryogenic systems. It has everything you would want and expect from a closed-cell pipe insulation – flexibility, moisture resistance, low thermal conductivity, etc. Plus, it’s made with a proprietary blend of EPDM rubber that makes it uniquely durable in extreme environments.

Aerocel ULP is available in unslit tubes for slide-on applications and pre-slit with Aeroflex’s SSPT dual tape seam closure.

See submittal sheet for sizes, thicknesses and corresponding R-values.
