Armacell offers the original closed-cell foam insulation systems for plumbing — commercial and residential
Since 1953 AP Armaflex® has been THE preferred flexible elastomeric insulation for commercial plumbing pipes.
The low thermal conductivity of Armaflex pipe insulation makes it an efficient thermal barrier. The closed-cell foam structure offers excellent water-vapor transmission properties, which reduce the need for additional vapor retarders. Also, its thermal performance will not be impaired by surface punctures.

Residential and Light Commercial Applications
For residential and light commercial applications, Armacell’s Tubolit®, Imcoa® and Tundra® products are practical, cost-effective solutions for pipe insulation. Available in semi-slit and self-seal configurations, these polyethylene foam tubes can be easily installed by homeowners. Available in 6-foot lengths, Tubolit, Imcoa and Tundra require no special tools for installation. Both Tubolit and Imcoa also come in a white self-seal option where a clean aesthetic is important.
Consumers will find several sizes of Armaflex and Tubolit pipe insulation at Home Depot stores under the Everbilt name. Armacell's Tundra® PE pipe insulation is available in many retail hardware stores. Imcoa is available through plumbing supply houses.
