ARIFLEX

Rubber Insulation Foam Tube & Foam Sheet

ARIFLEX Elastomeric Insulation foam tubes and foam


sheets are manufactured by a continuous extrusion
process. ARIFLEX tubes and sheets are specially designed
to provide a close cell structure.

Characteristics and Advantages


Low thermal conductivity ( K value), makes it highly
efficient and effective in the insulation of cooling or
heating systems.
The thermal blister close cell structure forms an
impermeable layer which is in itself a good vapour
barrier.
It is suitable for application within the temperature range
of -40C to +125C.
The material has been specially compounded to selfextinguish in nature
ARIFLEX has excellent ozone and ultraviolet
resistance.

Technology

It is CFC, asbestos, chlorine and fiber free and does


not cause skin allergy.

ARIL has the latest proceeding facilities to produce


consintent products like ARIFLEX elastomeric insulation
foam tubes and foam sheets that are meeting the
international standards. A Rheometer ensures batch to
batch consistency.

It is inert to most chemical agents and neutral to pipe


metals.
The extreme flexibility of the materials makes
installation fast, easy and economical.

Raw materials are imported from well renowned


international manufacturers. ARIL has stock available at
all times to meet the requirements of clients in a very short
period.

It is able to withstand tearing, rough handling and


severe site conditions.

Our special technology produces tubing and sheeting


whose chemical structure and chemical composition
makes it resistant to microorganism, ozone oils and
most solvents. The Internal and external skin permits
exceptional resistance to water and vapour allowing the
installer an easy application as the tubing and sheeting
slips on the piping.

Compared to other types of insulation, ARIFLEX


needs less installation space due to its low K-value.
This results in overall thinner walls.
The smooth surface of ARIFLEX material gives the
finished installation a neat and aesthetic appearance.
No coating is necessary for most indoor installations.

Quality Control & Technical Specification

Quality Control
ARIL manufactures ARIFLEX Rubber insulation Foam Tube
and sheets to fine tolerance and consistency meeting
national and international specifications.
ARIL has well equipped laboratory for testing all the
regular required tests to confirm the consistent quality of
the Foam Tube and sheet like Rheological test, Density
test etc.
ARIL technical personnel on being given service condition
and specification can develop suitable product from initial
engineering, design, tooling, compounding processing and
manufacturing to meet the requirement of the customer.
All finished goods are 100% visually inspected.

Table 4 - ARIFLEX Foam Tube Standard Sizes and Package details


Std. carton size : L X B X H = 1885 mm x 310 mm x 340 mm

Installation
ARIFLEX Foam Tube installs easily and quickly. No special
tools are needed. A factory applied coating of talc on the
smooth inner surface allows ARIFLEX to slide easily over
the pipe or tubing. When applied to existing lines, ARIFLEX
foam tube is slit lengthwise and fitted into the place. A
sharp knife is used for slitting. All seams and butt joints
should be sealed with an approved contact adhesive, to
make sure that both joint surfaces to be joined are coated
with adhesive.
Proper installtion is critical to the insulations performance.
It is important to properly size the insulation, push (dont
pull) the insulation over the pipe or tubing and finally seal
all seams, butt joints and open ends.
