THERMOBREAK is a flexible thermal insulation
material made from closed cell, crosslinked polyolefin foam.
The special crosslinking process utilised in the production
of the material, as well as, its closed cell structure, results
in insulating properties that are superior to conventional
fibreglass, rubber and non crosslinked products.
A very low thermal conductivity value (k), and neglibible
water absorption and vapour transmission rates reflect in
its superior energy saving performance, in a variety of environments.
THERMOBREAK products are Fire Retardant (FR) and meet
the BCA (Building Code of Australia) requirements to AS1530.3
- Early Fire Hazard, as well as British Standards BS476 parts
6 & 7.
properties due to low k value, that remain unchanged during
service life, and are unaffected by humidity.
The closed cell structure,
will not absorb, or allow the spread of water thus preventing
condensation or frost formation on cooling systems, chilled
water & refrigerant lines. No additional water vapour
barriers are required.
Supplied with reinforced
aluminium foil, for increased performance and quicker installation.
characteristics due to crosslinked structure. It will not
deforma round duct corners or areas surrounding pin mountings.
Wide working temperature
(-80°C to 100°C).
Thinner gauges can be
used to achieve effective insulation due to low k value. This
is also allows the use of material in areas with space limitations.
Available in a wide range
of thicknesses and widths to suit different insulation requirements.
Completely user friendly,
does not emit dust or fibre particles in service or during
installation. No special precautions (such as face masks or
gloves) are required during installation.
Meets BCA requirements
qith respect to AS1530.3 (1989) Early Fire Hazard and BS 476
parts 6 & 7 (foil type).
Non irritant and odourless
Does not allow build
up of bacteria contaminiation
Resistant to fungi
- made from polyethylene without the use of CFC's or HCFC's.
Available in roll form,
sheet form, or slit to special widths. Roll form allows easier
installation by wrapping around duct.
Can be overlapped, butt-joined,
using a sharp knife for ease of fabrication
Can be supplied with
a foil laminated surface, thus halving installation labour
Can be supplied with
quality acrylic adhesive for quicker, more efficient installation.
Can be easily cut (or
press - cut) to fit specific shapes
Can be easily torn
