Armacell offers the original closed-cell foam insulation systems for plumbing — commercial and residential
Since 1954 AP Armaflex® has been THE preferred flexible elastomeric insulation for commercial plumbing pipes. However, Armacell offers pipe insulation solutions for residential applications, too.
The low thermal conductivity of foam 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 punctures.
For residential applications, Armacell’s Tubolit® pipe insulation is a practical, cost-effective solution for pipe insulation. Available in pre-slit and self-seal configurations, this polyethylene foam can be easily installed by homeowners. Available in 6-foot lengths, Tubolit requires no special tools for installation.
