Pipe Insulation Hot & Cold Applications from Sekisui Foam Australia

pipe insulation

Thermobreak™ is a leading flexible thermal insulation material made from physically crosslinked, closed-cell, polyolefin foam, thermally fused to pure reinforced aluminum foil. Thermobreak™ is also available with adhesive backing. Thermobreak™ Tube insulation is a preformed tube thermal insulation for steel, copper and plastic pipes.

Thermobreak™ thermal insulation provides superior energy saving performance. It has a lower thermal conductivity than other flexible closed cell thermal insulation materials and has near zero vapour permeability. Its all-in-one concept enables fast and simple installation, and trouble free operation, in a variety of environments.

Thermobreak™Thermal Insulation and Thermobreak™ Tube are manufactured in Australia and Thailand.

Advantages of Thermobreak™

  • Optimum Thermal Insulation - Thermobreak™ can solve tight clearance issues with its very low thermal conductivity (k = 0.032 W/mK @ 23 Deg C).
  • Water Vapour Resistance - Thermobreak™s negligible water vapour permeance (8.19 X10-15 Kg/Pa.s.m) means no additional vapour barriers or coatings are required.
  • Safe To Use - Thermobreak™ is completely user friendly and does not emit fibres or dust during installation or in service. Thermobreak™ is non irritant, odourless, and will not support bacterial growth.
  • Easy To Drill & Cut - Thermobreak™ contributes to reducing installation time of mechanical services that may be installed afterwards.
  • Appearance & Durability - Thermobreak™ provides an appearance and performance that remains unchanged for the life of the building without sagging or giving a quilted look.
  • Extensive Technical Support - including ThermaCalc™ computer selection program with full analysis of heat flows, technical information bulletins, independent laboratory testing and Certification.
  • Fire and Smoke Standards - Extensively tested to various international fire and smoke standards, such as British (BS) , ASTM, Australian (AS), ISO, and UL Standards. Numerous National body approvals (PSB, HKFS, BOMBA, Qatar Civil Defense, Bahrain Civil Defense, Dubai Municipality).
  • Green Building Compliant - Certified Green Star product (VOC), Zero Global Warming Potential (GWP), Made without Ozone destroying agents such as CFCs or HCFCs
  • Backed by the financial and technical strength of a global company with locally based engineers.
