  • Insulation for pipes of 10mm ID to 76mm IPS are available in tubing form with wall thickness of up to 25mm.
     
  • Insulation above 76mm IPS are in precut sheets and availble up to 38mm thickness.
     
  • Insulflex thickness recommended within the specified temperature ranges will control condensation on indoor piping under design conditions defined as follows:
     
    MILD
    -
    Air-Conditioned and arid areas.
    NORMAL
    -
    Maximum severity of most indoor conditions seldom exceed 29.4°C and 70% RH.
    SEVERE & EXTREMELY SEVERE
    -
    Conditions of high humidity or poorly ventilated areas where temperature may be depressed below the ambient. Under conditions of high humidity, additional thickness of insulation may be required.
