UT SolaFlex

Tube and Roll Insulation

UT SolaFlex Tube and Roll Insulation is a UL listed, flexible EPDM thermal high-temperature insulation, ideal for solar, UV-resistant and oil-resistant applications. The closed-cell structure provides low thermal conductivity, excellent fire and smoke behavior, low temperature flexibility and excellent protection against heat flow and water vapor diffusion.

UT SolaFlex insulation performs on a broad range of metal pipes and tubing used on solar collectors, refrigeration, hot gas and dual temperature piping, automotive (under hood) and low-pressure steam lines. It is ideal for use as a high-temperature, closed-cell foam insulation for solar collectors.

Overview

Elastomeric tube insulation for higher temperatures up to 300°F

Product Advantages

  • Fire Rated: Meets 25/50 flame and smoke index of ASTM E 84

  • Helps Protect Indoor Air Quality: Fiber-free, formaldehyde-free, low VOC

  • Closed-cell structure naturally resists growth of mold

  • Remains flexible at temperatures up to +300°F (+150°C)

Application Areas

  • Solar collectors

  • VRV/VRF piping applications

  • Hot gas piping

  • Automotive (under hood)

  • Low pressure steam lines

  • Painting will minimize surface degradation due to prolonged UV radiation exposure
