Thermotec E-flex is a “fit for purpose” Solar Hot Water pipe insulation. It is manufactured from EPDM closed cell foam and has excellent UV resistant properties.
Fire Barrier Glass Cloth is an Aluminium Coated Glass Cloth Polyurethane used in common and parapet walls also under eaves to create a Fire Barrier. Fire Blanket is available in rolls and can be cut to length to suit requirements. The fire rating meets the standards of local councils and shires.
Venture products are uniformly manufactured with a specially developed formulation, combining high shear strength with both high tack and cold stick properties.
EDPM SOLAR CLOSED CELL FOAM, 4 ZERO & REFRIGERATION PIPE INSULATION All grades of Thermotec pipe insulation have similar performance in relation to operating temperature, thermal conductivity, non-toxicity and moisture absorption. Fire performance, noise attenuation, chemical resistance, size and wall thickness availability and cost are factors which will usually lead to the selection of a […]
Rockwool is a heavy duty thermal and acoustic insulation with an Industrial Fire Rating, used as acoustic ceiling and wall insulation, with a high degree of fire and sound protection.
Applications for Roxul Stone Wool Type 650 pipe insulation include industrial and process pipe work operating at temperature up to 650 degrees Celsius.
Maxtape is made from EPDM insulating foam sheet and specially coated with selected acrylic pressure sensitive adhesive to ensure good tacking strength
The thermal performance of a batt is dependent on the thickness. If you have an R 3.0 batt at 175mm thickness this will not fit into a 75mm or 90mm thickness wall stud. Compression of the batt will result in loss of thermal rating and can exert undue pressure on the wall cladding.
Insulation is rated on either its thermal or acoustic value. If a thermal batt is rated at R3.0 for example, there is no difference in performance whether it is polyester or glass wool. It is rather a personal or a financial choice.
The polyester is not suitable as it wraps around the fixing screws required for installation.
If you have a timber stud frame, you must use a breather foil or breathable building membrane. For a steel framed home a 6.5mm foil faced foam product with an R value of R0.2 must be used in order to satisfy the thermal bridging requirements. There are 6.5mm products in the market that do not meet these standards so choose carefully.
