Non-halogen Insulation in Tubes, Sheets and Rolls
NH ArmaFlex was specially developed by Armacell to minimize the density of smoke in a fire event and eliminate corrosive acid gases from combustion. NH ArmaFlex will not carry a progressive flame, and is formulated without chlorine, bromines, or PVC.
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 use on ships.
