Polyurethane insulation for pipes prevents heat loss and in cold climates helps maintain a warmer pipe temperature to avoid freezing or cracking. Pipe insulation provides a high mechanical strength and flexibility in a variety of applications including oil and gas pipelines, district water pipes and industrial tanks.
Compatibility with polyethylene, polypropylene, high density polyethylene and PVC pipe materials, methylene diphenyl diisocyanate (MDI)–based polyurethane foam is suitable for pipe applications ranging from 0.5 inch/12.700 mm diameter plumbing pipes up to district heating pipes with an 80 inch/2032 mm diameter and 10 inches/254 mm of insulation. Pipe insulation helps engineers optimize the efficient performance of a pipe network, making it easier to manage operational and capital costs.
