Characteristics of VSC VSC referred to penoelastomeram. This is a flexible closed cell foam. Issued in sheets or extrusion, followed by curing the foam. By fire are classified as samogasimyh materials. Not exposed to mold and microorganisms. Have a high resistance to water absorption and water vapor. Professional insulation of foamed synthetic rubber for the first time in the world have been developed and are marketed by Armstrong World Industries.
In 2000, the thermal insulation division of Armstrong has been transformed into an independent company Armacell. Now the company ARMACELL, whose head office in Munster (Germany), comprising 14 factories in 11 countries and continues to lead the market of flexible technical insulation. Foamed synthetic rubber is presented in the form of tubes and sheets. Tubular membranes are used for thermal insulation of steel, copper and plastic pipes with outside diameters from 6 mm to 160 mm. The thickness of the insulating layer is 6-32 mm. For heat insulation large diameter pipes, fittings, valves, non-circular section pipes and equipment are manufactured flat sheets and rolls of varying thickness, including adhesive. The density of foam rubber insulation – 40-80 kg/m3. The number of closed pores in these heaters must be at least 90%. Depending on the type of insulation materials used in the temperature range from -200 to +175 C and are suitable for thermal insulation, not only heating, water and air-conditioning, but process piping. Insulation made of foam rubber, technological, chemical, and waterproof, can provide savings of up to 70% of the heat, and protection of pipelines from fogging and condensation while maintaining its own parameters for a long time.
