Product benefits

Kaiflex Protect Alu-TEC is the premium Kaimann product when you need high-performance insulation, high aesthetics and a high level of surface protection. This is made possible by a combination of proven Kaiflex rubber base material, a robust coat of flexible PVC film and weather-resistant aluminium cladding. 

A variety of benefits for a variety of uses

Kaiflex Protect Alu-TEC appeals to planners and building owners alike. It can be used for the technical insulation of ventilation ducts and pipes in cooling and air conditioning, for indoor and outdoor industrial applications, and for situations where appearance matters most, for example open installs with visible pipes or ductwork.

This sheet and tube material with its smooth, gleaming surface is ideal for technically demanding applications. It has very high tensile elongation and elongation at break, and extraordinary puncture resistance. This gives insulation and pipes very high protection from mechanical damage, and from UV radiation and weather effects when used outdoors.

The coating also makes Kaiflex Protect Alu-TEC ideal for the food industry. For installs to be food-grade, and to avoid affecting the flavour and aroma of foods by direct contact with the material, pipes must be fully clad and all seams and joins must be covered. The material can be wiped down and is resistant to a wide range of chemicals used in industrial processing.

Economical alternative to conventional metal cladding

With metal cladding, there typically has to be an air gap between insulation and cladding so that connectors like screws and rivets do not damage the insulation. Furthermore, with conventional cladding, the surface temperature is substantially higher than that of Kaiflex Protect Alu-TEC. Both of these mean that the insulation must be thicker to provide adequate insulation and also prevent condensation. With Kaiflex Protect Alu-TEC there is no need for this higher insulation thickness. This saves space and material, while also reducing the installation time and costs.

Simple installation

Kaiflex Protect Alu-TEC is pre-clad, so there is no need for manual application of cladding or for the support structures otherwise needed in industrial applications. Cutting to shape off-site is also no longer necessary, since the elastomer insulation can be flexibly adapted to installation geometries at the site. All this makes installation easy and saves time. Colour-matched accessories like Kaiflex Protect Alu-TEC Tape, Sealant and a self-adhesive overlap on the tube material further simplify proper installation.
