"Insulating New York & New Jersey One PIPE at a Time!" ™    

CELLULAR GLASS INSULATION


FOAMGLAS® ONE insulation is a lightweight, rigid material composed of millions of completely sealed glass cells. FOAMGLAS® ONE insulation is manufactured by Pittsburgh Corning in a block form and then fabricated into a wide range of shapes and sizes to satisfy industrial and commercial insulation requirements.

FOAMGLAS BENEFITS:

CONSTANT INSULATING EFFICIENCY
FOAMGLAS® ONE insulation has a homogeneous, closed cell glass structure that resists moisture in both liquid and vapor forms and results in long term, constant insulating efficiency.

NONCOMBUSTIBLE
FOAMGLAS® ONE insulation is 100% glass and contains no binders or fillers – it cannot burn. It will not absorb flammable liquids or vapors. If a facility fire occurs, FOAMGLAS® ONE™ insulation can help protect people and equipment by aiding in the containment or suppression of the flames.

CORROSION RESISTENT
FOAMGLAS® ONE insulation is unaffected by common chemicals and by most corrosive atmospheres. It does not promote metal corrosion and its moisture resistance will help keep water from reaching equipment and piping.

LONG TERM DIMENSIONAL STABILITY
FOAMGLAS® ONE insulation is not affected by temperature differentials and humidity. It will not swell, warp, shrink or otherwise distort. The integrity of the insulation remains intact even at the extremes of cryogenic service.

VERMIN RESISTANCE
FOAMGLAS® ONE insulation is resistant to vermin, as well as microbes and mold.

HIGH COMPRESSIVE STRENGTH
FOAMGLAS® ONE insulation can withstand loads which crush most other insulating materials. In a properly designed piping system, it eliminates the need for special treatment at pipe cradles. It provides a fire base for roof membranes, jacketing or vapor retarders, and can prolong their life.

ECOLOGICALLY FRIENDLY, SUSTAINABLE
FOAMGLAS® ONE insulation is free of CFC’s and HCFC’s and has been formally recognized as an ecologically friendly, sustainable construction material.
