Product benefits

Kaifoam PE is a CE-compliant closed-cell insulation material made of quality polyethylene that is used to insulate pipes carrying heat and cold in sanitary and heating technology. The silver-grey pipe insulation reliably minimises energy losses in unheated rooms of commercial and residential buildings such as detached houses and apartment blocks thanks to low thermal conductivity of ≤0.040 W/(m·K) at +40 °C or +10 °C mean temperature. These thermal properties reliably prevent either condensation from forming or pipes freezing over the entire service life of the heating system.

At the same time, Kaifoam PE also acts as sound insulation by muffling liquid flow and ticking noises from adjacent building components. Dust- and fibre-free, it meets increased hygiene requirements while contributing to a positive indoor climate.

Wide product range

The portfolio offers further insulation solutions (e.g. Kaifoam PE-RO), which have an additional coating of a particularly resistant protective polymer film. Thanks to this stable surface, they are perfect for insulating pipes under plaster in the wall and floor areas that are subject to heavy mechanical loads.

The angular Kaifoam PE-DHplus insulation sleeves are made from high-quality polyethylene and have been specially designed for insulating heating pipes in floor construction above rooms which are in contact with the ground, unheated rooms, as well as in false ceilings.

Kaifoam PE-DWS is a PE thin-walled tube with inner and outer foil for copper pipes, Kaifoam PE-AB is a PE insulation for sewage pipes, and the Kaifoam PE-STR insulation strip rounds off the Kaifoam PE range.

Easy attachment

Kaifoam PE insulation material is easy to work with, as the semi-flexible tubes are supplied slit so they can be simply pushed onto the pipe. There is a wide range of tape accessories and PE clips for secure attachment. Kaifoam PE tubes are also available in a self-adhesive version. Kaifoam PE generates a positive return on investment in just a short time.
