Foamglass / Cellular glass insulation is a lightweight, rigid material composed of millions of completely sealed glass cells. Foamglass / Cellular glass insulation is manufactured in a block form and then fabricated into a wide range of shapes and sizes to satisfy industrial and commercial insulation requirements.
Foamglass / Cellular glass insulation has a homogeneous, closed cell glass structure that resists moisture in both liquid and vapor forms and results in long term, constant insulating efficiency. Foamglass / Cellular glass insulation is 100% glass and contains no binders or fillers – it cannot burn. It will not absorb flammable liquids or vapors. If a facility fire occurs, Foamglass / Cellular glass insulation can help protect people and equipment by aiding in the containment or suppression of the flames.
Foamglass / Cellular glass insulation is unaffected by common chemicals and by most corrosive atmospheres. It does not promote metal corrosion and its moisture resistance will help keep water from reaching equipment and piping.
Foamglass / Cellular glass insulation is not affected by temperature differentials and humidity. It will not swell, warp, shrink or otherwise distort. The integrity of the insulation remains intact even at the extremes of cryogenic service.
Foamglass / Cellular glass insulation is resistant to vermin, as well as microbes and mold.
Foamglass / Cellular glass S insulation can withstand loads which crush most other insulating materials. In a properly designed piping system, it eliminates the need for special treatment at pipe cradles. It provides a fire base for roof membranes, jacketing or vapor retarders, and can prolong their life.
Foamglass / Cellular glass insulation is free of CFC’s and HCFC’s and has been formally recognized as an ecologically friendly, sustainable construction material.
Foamglass / Cellular glass insulation systems provide solutions for a wide range of piping and equipment applications at operating temperatures from -268 to 482 C (-450 to 900 F).
