Calculating R-Value AEROFLEX® EPDM Closed-Cell Elastomeric Foam Insulation

WHY THERMAL INSULATION? Mechanical insulation effectively reduces heat exchange between a pipe, duct, or equipment and its environment. An insulation’s thermal efficiency is measured by thermal conductivity (K-value). The lower the K-value, the more thermally efficient insulation is. For example, a K-value of 0.245 is preferable to .280. WHAT IS R-VALUE? Thermal resistance to heat…
