K-FLEX USA LS TUBE RUBBER PIPE INSULATION

DESCRIPTION:
K-FLEX LS pipe insulation is an environmentally friendly, CFC-free, flexible elastomeric thermal insulation. It is black in color, identified as K-FLEX LS, and is available in unslit tubular form in wall thicknesses of 3/8", 1/2", 3/4", 1", and 1-1/2" in sizes ranging from 3/8" I.D. to 8" IPS. K-FLEX LS key physical properties are approved through supervision by Factory Mutual Research Corporation. K-FLEX LS Tube is non-porous, non-fibrous, and resists mold growth. The Bio-Guard antimicrobial system provides added protection against mold, fungal and bacterial growth. The active ingredient in Bio-Guard is registered with the EPA.

APPLICATIONS:
K-FLEX LS is used to retard heat gain and prevent condensation or frost formation on refrigerant lines, cold water plumbing and chilled water systems. It also retards heat loss for hot water plumbing, liquid heating, dual temperature piping and many solar systems. K-FLEX™ LS is designed for the professional contractor.

K-FLEX LS is recommended for applications ranging from -297°F to 220°F. The expanded closed cell structure makes K-FLEX LS an efficient insulator and an effective moisture vapor retarder.

K-FLEX LS has a very tough skin which withstands tearing, rough handling and severe environmental conditions, and yet is quite flexible for easy installation. K-FLEX LS has superior cold weather flexibility. K-FLEX LS Tube can be used with heat tracing/heat tapes.



K-FLEX USA INSUL-LOCK DS
DOUBLE SEAL PIPE INSULATION

DESCRIPTION:
K-FLEX INSUL-LOCK DS (DoubleSeal) is a flexible closed-cell elastomeric insulation tube product used to conserve energy and prevent condensation on piping applications. It is pre-slit with a factory-applied pressure sensitive modified-acrylic adhesive with scrim reinforcement on the seam surface and a flexible PVC overlap tape with acrylic adhesive for doubled seam security. The system reduces installation time and costs, and ensures a strong, durable seal.

APPLICATIONS:
K-FLEX INSUL-LOCK DS is recommended for applications with service temperatures ranging
from -40°F to +220°F. The product is used to retard heat gain and prevent condensation or frost formation on below ambient applications, including refrigerant, cold water plumbing, chilled water, and industrial process lines, among others. It can be used with heat tracing tapes. It also retards heat loss from medium hot systems, including hot water plumbing, liquid heating, dual temperature, and solar thermal piping, among others.

The product's closed-cell structure creates exceptional thermal properties that protect against moisture penetration in applications within a -40°F to +220°F temperature range.

K-FLEX INSUL-LOCK DS is widely used for its cold weather flexibility, durable skin surface, exacting manufacturing tolerances and lasting performance. It is available in 6’ lengths in wall thicknesses ranging from 1/2 to 2”.

K-FLEX INSUL-LOCK DS is non-porous, non-fibrous and resists mold, fungal and bacterial growth. For added protection, it is protected with an EPA-approved antimicrobial agent. 

K-FLEX INSUL-LOCK DS is GREENGUARD certified under the Children and Schools classification, is approved through supervision by the Factory Mutual Research Corporation, and is 25/50-rated when tested to ASTM E 84 standards.



K-FLEX USA SHEET / ROLL RUBBER INSULATION




DESCRIPTION:
K-FLEX LS SHEET insulation is an environmentally friendly, CFC-free, flexible elastomeric thermal insulation. It is black in color and supplied as flat sheets (36" x 48") in standard thicknesses of 1/8" through 2". It is supplied skin two sides in 1/4" and above. K-FLEX LS SHEET is also available in rolls, with a standard roll width of 48". K-FLEX LS SHEET key physical properties are approved through supervision by Factory Mutual Research Corporation. This product is non-porous, fiber free and resistant to mold and mildew. The Bio-Guard™ antimicrobial system provides added protection against mold, fungal and bacterial growth. The active ingredient in Bio-Guard is registered with the EPA.

APPLICATIONS:
K-FLEX LS SHEET insulation is used to retard heat gain and prevent condensation or frost formation on cold equipment, ducts, or large O.D. pipes. It also effectively retards heat loss when used on hot equipment, ducts, or large pipes. K-FLEX LS SHEET can be used as duct wrap covering. K-FLEX LS SHEET is recommended for applications ranging from -297°F to 220°F when used as pipe insulation where only the seams and butt joints are glued. When full adhesion application is used, the upper limit is 200°F.

K-FLEX LS SHEET has a very tough skin which withstands tearing, rough handling and severe environmental conditions, and yet is quite flexible for easy installation. K-FLEX LS SHEET has superior cold weather flexibility.

K-FLEX LS SHEET thickness has been calculated to control condensation on cold surfaces. Refer to the Submittal Sheet for specific recommendation.



K-FLEX USA GRAY DUCT LINER INSULATION


DESCRIPTION:
K-FLEX Duct Liner Gray is an NBR/PVC-based closed cell, flexible elastomeric foam thermal and acoustic insulation. It is environmentallyfriendly as it is free of CFCs, HFCs, HCFCs, PBDEs, formaldehyde and fibers. An EPAregistered antimicrobial agent is incorporated into the product providing additional protection against mold, fungal and bacterial growth. It is UL GREENGUARD Gold Certified for low VOC emissions.

APPLICATIONS:
K-FLEX Duct Liner Gray is suitable for applications with service temperatures ranging from -297°F to +220°F.  When using factory-applied PSA, the low temperature limit is -40°F. When the product is installed fully adhered to the insulated surface (via contact adhesive or PSA), the high temperature limit is +200°F.  The product is used to reduce sound transmission and/or retard heat gain/loss and prevent condensation when used as an internal liner on square, rectangular, round or oval ductwork or equipment.

 



K-FLEX USA ACCESSORY PRODUCTS

K-FLEX FOAM TAPE - K-FLEX Foam Tape is a flexible elastomeric rubber insulation tape with factory applied pressure sensitive adhesive for a long lasting bond.  K-FLEX Foam Tape is 1/8" thick with a roll size is 2" wide x 30ft long.  Foam Tape is most commonly used to wrap pipe fittings such as valve stems that are not practical to insulate with tubing.  Foam Tape can also be used to insulate short runs of piping as well.

 



K-FLEX RUBBER ADHESIVE 320
- K-FLEX 320/620 Rubber Adhesive is a contact adhesive that is used to glue two sections of elastomeric pipe insulation together.
