FlexiCell XLPE Polyolefin Tubes/ Pipe Sections:

FlexiCell XLPE Polyolefin Thermal Insulation Tubes are long-lasting tube insulation designed for pipes, and are made from chemically cross-linked closed-cell, polyolefin foam, factory bonded to pure reinforced aluminium foil with very low thermal conductivity. All FlexiCell thermal insulation tubes comply with LEED requirements and provide optimum technical performance.

The polyolefin insulation foam structure controls condensation, has high thermal efficiency, and sound absorption properties. With a low thermal conductivity and water vapour permeability, FlexiCell Polyolefin Thermal Insulation Tubes deliver energy saving performance, easy and straightforward installation, and trouble-free operation in a variation of environments. In addition to the dimensional stability, the insulation tubes regain their original shape as a result of the ‘memory effect’. The polyolefin thermal insulation tubes are thick, which match the majority of the usual pipe sizes up to 40 inches and can be coated with foil or can be left plain.
