A continuous coil pipe insulation with a strong protective coating for challenging applications

Armacell’s new ArmaFlex® Shield flexible foam insulation is moisture- and UV-resistant with a durable protective jacket specially designed for line set, HVAC and refrigeration applications. Its tough coating holds up to challenging installations and withstands extreme elements like UV, heat and cold, making it a great choice for outdoor and roof-top applications. 

ArmaFlex Shield is an extension of ArmaFlex®, the world’s most recognized brand of closed-cell foam insulation, providing superior protection against thermal losses, condensation and moisture accumulation, while providing added tear resistance and UV protection right out of the box. Builders of residential and commercial spaces of all types will benefit from the long-term performance and peace of mind that ArmaFlex Shield lends to the mechanical and HVAC/R piping systems.

Its moisture- and UV-resistant characteristics make it especially valuable on piping systems where there are rough installation environments and challenging weather elements that may significantly degrade the thermal performance of other unprotected insulations, leaving them susceptible to both thermal losses and fungal growth and ultimately shortening their lifecycle. When used outdoors unprotected insulation is often damaged by line-trimmers used in proximity to AC refrigeration lines. ArmaFlex Shield will protect and keep working even when landscapers come a little too close for comfort.

Plumbing and refrigeration contractors will like the convenient Contractor Pack with a center opening that makes pulling long coils for a job easier than ever. It keeps the pipe insulation tangle-free clean until you use it—pull out just what you need, as you need it.
