New Armacell Knife Kit Available to Insulation Installers

  • 8-piece professional-grade tool set 
  • Enables precision cutting of foam insulation for better installations 
  • Available through North American distributors where Armacell insulation is sold 

Chapel Hill, North Carolina, 1 November 2023 – Armacell, a global leader in flexible foam for the equipment insulation market and a leading provider of engineered foams, announced today the launch of a new professional-grade knife kit available to insulation installers in North America.

Installing Armacell’s elastomeric or polyethylene foam insulation is a precision skill that requires the right tools for a clean cut, that glues together seamlessly, creating a better bond. This carefully curated 8-piece set includes high quality tools recommended for insulation installers to ensure the best possible installation.

“Where to get the knives our trainers use is the number one request we hear during Armacell’s installer training sessions,” says Anthony Ortega, Armacell Application and Project Support Specialist. “We source our knives and sharpeners from several makers in the U.S. and other countries, which can make it difficult for the installer to acquire them on their own. Now we offer a one-stop-shop of all the right tools in an easy-to-carry kit.”

The kit is available through Armacell’s network of insulation distributors in North America and includes all the tools Armacell recommends to professional insulation installers: 

  • 8.5” non-serrated knife 
  • 6.5” non-serrated knife 
  • 7” filet knife with sheath 
  • 6” ceramic knife with sheath 
  • Knife sharpener 
  • 2 silver markers 
  • Durable canvas carrying case
