Kaiflex Protect Alu-NET is an effective, high-quality elastomer foam that also features a highly flexible, fibre-reinforced coating with an aluminium look. It protects the surface and gives the material a high-end appearance. This makes this sheet and tube material ideal for open installations.
The material is used for the technical insulation of ducts and for pipes in interior cooling and air conditioning applications, as well as light industrial indoor applications. The coating is waterproof and easy to clean, making Kaiflex Protect Alu-Net also ideal for use in cleanrooms and food manufacturing.
Four ways to save
Space, insulation material, installation time and costs – Kaiflex Protect Alu-NET saves in four ways. The reason is that with conventional insulation claddings, the surface temperature is substantially higher than with the Alu-NET coating. That means there has to be an air gap between insulation and cladding so that connectors like screws and rivets do not damage the insulation. Both of these mean that the insulation has to be thicker to provide sufficient insulating performance and condensation protection. With Kaiflex Protect Alu-NET there is no need for this higher insulation thickness or the air gap.
The material comes with the protective coating already applied, making Kaiflex Protect Alu-NET easy to install since there is no need for subsequent cladding application. The excellent tear resistance of the protective coating gives this insulation very flexible handling. It can be flexibly adapted to installation geometries at the site, making cutting to shape off-site unnecessary. Colour-matched accessories like Kaiflex Protect Alu-NET Tape and Sealant further simplify proper installation.
