What is EPDM Insulation?

This post will break down the key differences between two types of closed cell elastomeric foam insulation – EPDM (Ethylene Propylene Diene Monomer) insulation and NBR/PVC (Nitrile Butadiene Rubber/Polyvinyl Chloride). Closed cell flexible elastomeric insulation, also known as rubber, has been commercially available in the United States for almost 70 years. Due to its closed-cell…

Research the Best Flexible Elastomeric Pipe Insulation

Flexible elastomeric pipe insulation has been available in the United States since the early 1950s. It is also known as closed cell elastomeric insulation, cellular foam insulation, closed cell elastomeric foam insulation, rubber, unicellular foam insulation, refrigeration pipe insulation, hvac pipe insulation, ac return line insulation, plumbing pipe insulation, uv resistant refrigerant line insulation, refrigerant…

Calculating the Correct AEROFLEX® Insulation Thickness for Condensation Control

Insulation thickness determines success or failure when insulating below-ambient (cold) piping & equipment systems. For under-insulated systems, condensation will build up on the insulation surface and eventually cascade over building components and spaces below. Uncontrolled condensation can lead to corrosion under insulation (CUI), saturated insulation, thermal energy loss, mold & mildew growth, and system failure……
