Foil Faced Pipe Insulation
Isover pipe insulation consists of a strong yet lightweight pre-formed ‘snap-on’ sections engineered from non- combustible mineral wool containing special water repellent additives.
The foil pipe insulation has a factory applied reinforced aluminium foil covering incorporating a self-adhesive overlap.
This helps to provide effective vapour control finish, allowing use on pipes operating at ambient temperatures and above.
Isover pipe Insulation is manufactured under quality management standard EN ISO 9001:2000
It can be used in accordance with the performance requirements and application standards of BS5422: 2001 method for specifying thermal insulating materials on pipes, ductwork and equipment in the range of -40°C to +700°C
BS5970: 2001 codes of practice for the thermal insulation of pipework and equipment in the range -100°C to +870°C
The base mineral wool is totally non-combustable. The glass mineral wool also achieves Euroclass A2 fire rating.
Additionally the factory applied aluminium foil facing meets the highest standards required by BS476: Part 6 'Fire Propagation' and BS476: Part 7 'Surface spread of flame', The foil facing is therefore rated 'Class O' to the building regulations.
Isover pipe insulation can be used on pipework with continuous service temperatures of 230°C to 500°C. The temperature of the aluminium foil facing should not exceed 80°C.
