Kingspan Tarec Phenolic Foam Pipe Insulation

Kooltherm Pipe Insulation is a factory, pre-engineered high-performance system comprising one metre long sections of Kooltherm Insulation faced with a factory applied aluminium foil vapour barrier jacket autohesively bonded to the insulation core.

Kooltherm Insulation has a 95% (or greater) closed cell structure, which makes it non-wicking and highly resistant to moisture penetration. The risk of moisture absorption into the insulation is effectively eliminated as the factory-applied aluminium foil facing to Kooltherm Pipe Insulation System products provides a high performance vapour barrier jacket.
