Marine insulation solutions for demanding onshore and offshore applications
Armacell elastomeric insulation solutions stand up to the harshest marine environments, providing both thermal and acoustical protection on ships, vessels, and onshore or offshore installations (oil, gas and wind), while also meeting associated fire-safety requirements.
Armacell closed-cell foam is frequently used to insulate piping, tanks, and air ducts, and to prevent stress corrosion with stainless-steel pipes in the following applications:
U.S. Navy applications
IMO (International Maritime Organization)
Nuclear power plants
Other areas where non-halogenated or chlorine-free materials may be required
NH ArmaFlex® is a non-halogen elastomeric insulation developed for sweat control in environments that require specific protection against smoke containing acid gases. It is the first non-halogen flexible insulation introduced for shipboard use. NH ArmaFlex is an engineered closed-cell foam material that eliminates the toxic gases that may threaten personnel and sensitive electronic equipment including effects from:
Available in tube, sheet and roll form, NH ArmaFlex is easier to install with improved durability over other approved products. NH ArmaFlex has been fire tested at the Naval Research Laboratory (NRL) in controlled comparisons with baseline materials. Further testing through DDG-51 and NSSN produced references that NH ArmaFlex scored better than MIL-P-15280J materials such as AP ArmaFlex.
