Cheap insulation can be a false economy if it is not the right insulation product. We aim to help you choose the most cost effective product for your needs and can offer a large range from economy options such as domestic grade polyethylene pipe insulation through to products for fire stopping that offer a 2 hour structural fire rating. We can also help you comply with British Standards such as BS5422 and can guide you to achieve a low cost option for your application.
Pipe Insulation Materials (sometimes known as pipe lagging or insulated pipe sleeves) are used for a variety of purposes including frost protection, domestic heating & condensation control to name a few of the basics.
There is no one product that suits every application - a basic polyethylene foam such as Climaflex is well suited to domestic applications as it offers good insulation values with a low price and is easy to fit. In applications such as insulating your pipework in the loft or the copper pipes to your boiler it can be used in conjunction with either clips or even a gaffer tape (such as Rhino by Ultratape) for quick and easy installation.
For condensation control you are better off using a nitrile rubber which offers a high emissivity finish (ie because it is black) and that is ideal for preventing condensation forming. You can use products such as Eurobatex or K Flex for this application - Eurobatex might be better suited to refrigeration and air conditioning pipework as it is unsplit whereas K Flex is a good option for retrofits as it is pre split and self sealing.
Knauf Pipe Insulation is a rock mineral wool insulation that would suit a variety of commercial and light industrial applications. It comes as 1.2m lengths with a foil finish & self adhesive overlap. It can take temperatures well over 200C so can be used on steam pipes and in plant rooms very easily. It is also robust and is made using Knauf's patented "ECOSE Technology" that means the fibres are not itchy or irritating. As with other rock fibre, Knauf Technical Insulation products it is also a very effective acoustic pipe insulation due to its high density.
Phenolic Foam (as a generic material) such as Kingspan Kooltherm is the most efficient HVAC pipe lagging on the market in the UK with a low thermal conductivity of 0.025 W/m.K (aged value). Its high efficiency allow it to be used at thinner wall thicknesses where space is at a premium.
