Elastomeric Rubber Foam insulation is a synthetic rubber composed of a closed-cell structure available in factory-made tubes, sheets, or rolls. The outside edge consists of a smooth surface or “skin” which serves as a built-in vapor retarder.
Because of its outstanding capacity to manage condensation on cold (below-ambient) mechanical systems, closed-cell elastomeric foam insulation is best recognized as an HVAC, refrigerant, and plumbing pipe or piping insulation. Elastomeric foam insulation, with its low water vapor permeability, closed-cell structure, and built-in vapor retarder, is an excellent choice for protecting piping and equipment from corrosion under insulation, or ``CUI,`` one of the most common problems and owner concerns in the building and construction industry.
HVAC systems are used in both commercial and residential buildings, from offices to factories, hotels to homes. They’re a big factor when it comes to the overall comfort of your home or building. Adding HVAC insulation can help improve that comfort and even lead to lower utility costs.
