Sustainability

Aeroflex USA manufactures the Aerocel® brand of EPDM (ethylene propylene diene monomer) closed-cell elastomeric insulation for HVAC, refrigeration, and plumbing piping, ductwork & equipment systems.

We source materials that minimize hazards to the environment and human health. Most of our products are manufactured in the U.S.A. utilizing an energy-efficient production process that yields minimal waste and contributes to favorable energy optimization, sustainable materials, indoor environmental quality, and building mechanical system life cycle costs.

According to the National Insulation Association (NIA), mechanical insulation offers numerous sustainable benefits for building owners:

Saves energy (reduces consumption)
Reduces greenhouse gas emissions (contributes to climate change goals)
Freeze protection (proactively diverts construction waste impacted by potential water damage)

Aerocel® EPDM closed-cell elastomeric insulation can contribute to a design team’s sustainability goals to help meet the owner project requirements (OPR’s) and basis of design (BOD).
