Description

Compriflex Sheeting is a cellular polyethylene foam, which has properties that make it suitable for a number of diversified applications. It has high insulation and acoustic properties and is remarkably versatile. It can be cut, sliced, punched, embossed, thermoformed and laminated to various substrates or made self-adhesive. Applications are air-conditioning, refrigeration, acoustic, protective packaging, household D-I-Y, automotive, solar heating and other applications.

Applications

Compriflex insulation can be used for the insulation of hot water, refrigeration and air-conditioning lines, central heating and sanitary pipes. Other applications are the protection of furniture, glass and bicycles during transport. Edge protection of children’s playground and sports equipment. Compriflex insulation is ideal for buried pipes as its closed cell structure ensures minimal moisture absorption and reaction with soils. Suitable alternatives can be used where pipework is insulated prior to installation. It must be coated with an acrylic based paint to protect against UV damage.

Compriflex Ductwrap

PRODUCT INFORMATION: Compriflex Ductwrap is a flexible insulation wrap, specially engineered to meet the requirement of external lagging of air conditioning ducting Compriflex Ductwrap is also CFC free It consists of low density closed cell polyethylene foam which is flame retardent and faced with an aluminium foil Low Thermal Conductivity 0,033W/M/K at mean temperature of 20 deg.C in accordance with DIN 2613 Moisture absorption less than 2% by volume after 28 days

Availability

Compriflex insulation is available with a standard 15mm well thickness. Other sizes are available on request. The standard length is 2m. It is also available in a solid tube without the zip.

IS 40

Uses: Expansion joints in: Paving, Pool deck, Concrete flooring, between columns and brickwork.

Physical Properties

Density Nominal 40Kg/m³
Cell Structure Fine, closed cell
Colour Grey
Chemical Resistance Resists most common acids and chemicals
Toxicity Non-Toxic. Product is flame retardent but in the event of burning, level of smoke given off is low and non-toxic. Sabs test FPE/84773/07 Smoke toxicity index = 0
Thermal Conductivity 0,031 to 0,043 W/m.K over the -50°C to +50°C temperature range. SABS test 2332.AK 938-1
Operating Tempearture -40°C to +90°C
Water Absorption <2% after 28 days. Does not absorb water and therefore not only protects your pipes against energy loss but also against condensation and corrosion.
Weatherability Very good. Does however require a coating of exerior acrylic paint for protection against UV degradation.
Odour None
Standard Length 2 meters
Wall Thickness 15 mm
Size Range 10 mm diameter upwards
ODP 0.055
Installation All edges and ends must be butted together, where support and spacer blocks are used – pipe insulation must be butted up to the block and sealed.

IS 100 / 150

Uses:
Reservoirs, expansion joints in water retention and sewerage works.

Joint Former

The effective way of forming an expansion joint. Material supplied in rolls or sheets. Material supplied with or without tear off (T/O) strips. We can cut sheets to suit a template or dimension. 

Pipe Installation

Compriflex insulation must be installed tightly around the pipework, without gaps, edges and ends tightly butted. All joints must be taped using a 50-75mm self-adhesive PVC tape. Where necessary, the pipe sections can be cut and mitred together to ensure a tight fit around bends and tees. Metal cladding is required for areas where the product is subject to mechanical damage.
