Pipe insulation, also referred to as pipe lagging, is a product that offers thermal or acoustic insulation for pipework in a domestic, commercial or industrial environment. It can limit the rate or heat transfer or be used for noise control depending on requirement.
It is also a very cost effective method of saving energy, as very often the same pipe insulation product can often be used to provide Frost Protection AND insulate against Heat Loss. The most common pipe insulation used around the home is polyethylene (and the best known brand is Climaflex). This is a great, low cost product that can be used to protect pipes from freezing in the winter and keep them cool in the summer. It is easy to install and work with, being split down the length for DIY use. You will also find flexible elastomeric foams (also known as rubber pipe insulation) are commonly used for domestic pipe insulation (two well know brand names are Eurobatex and Armaflex). These have the same thermal values as polyethylene, but are more flexible and have a Class 0 fire rating which is a requirement when working to certain building regulations. Foil Faced Pipe Insulation (also referred to as Pipe Sections when talking about rigid products) is more commonly used in commercial and industrial pipework applications. The common types are Mineral Wool (either Glass Wool or Rock Wool) or Phenolic Foam (The most well know brand name being Kingspan Kooltherm).
