Description

  • Performed sections of glass fibres bonded with a hear resistant resin, free from shot and coarse fibre, light, damage resistant, easy to handle, cut and fit. The sections are split along their lengths to provide a hinge for ease of fitting.

Applications

  • Thermal insulation of steel, copper or plastic pipes operating in temperature up to 230 °C (450 °F)

Facing & Covering

  • KIMMCO Rigid Pipe Covering can be supplied plain or with Glass Reinforced Aluminium Foil/Kraft Paper laminate (FSK), white ASJ, Canvas.

Performances

  • DURABILITY: KIMMCO Rigid Pipe Coverings are rot proof, they resist the effects of moisture and will not decompose through continual exposure of the elements. They will not shrink due to the age or temperature variations. They will maintain their thermal properties through the lifetime of the construction.
  • THERMAL CONDUCTIVITY: Test in accordance with ASTM C 335.
  • NO CORROSION: Does not cause or accelerate corrosion of steel, copper, or aluminium.
  • FIRE CLASSIFICATION: KIMMCO Rigid Pipe Coverings have been tested and listed by the Underwriters Laboratory according to UL 723, ASTM E 84 (File 9704).

Typical Installation Procedure

A. STRAIGHT PIPES

  • Make sure the pipe surface to be insulated is clean and dry from dust, oil or grease.
  • Apply one coat of adhesive over the pipe surface, as per adhesive manufacturers instruction.
  • Fix the performed rigid section by opening snap on side enough to insert over the pipe.
  • Press the section all over to achieve bonding between pipe and insulation.
  • Keep the over lap over the section.
  • Apply a light coat of adhesive on down part of overlap and fix it over the section - take care no wrinkles are formed.
  • Wipe out any adhesive spill over by using a dry cotton cloth - make sure the surface is dry off adhesive.
  • Fix 75 mm suitable tape (Aluglass tape for ALUGLASS facing; Aluminium tape for FSK facing) preferably UL listed centric to lap and section surface of long seam and joints between section.
  • Press the tape using smooth edged plastic card (used telephone cards also found ok) - make sure there are no wrinkles formed in the process of fixing the tape.
  • While fixing the next length make sure coat of adhesive is applied on any face on either of section of continuous joint.
  • Fix suitable tape (Aluglass tape for ALUGLASS facing; Aluminium tape for FSK facing) preferably UL listed equally cantered between two sections.

B. JOINTS AT SUPPORT INSERT

  • Fix the sections from either side of insert using coat of adhesive at each faces of substrate and make sure the insulation is friction fit.
  • Apply suitable tape (Aluglass tape for ALUGLASS facing; Aluminium take FSK facing) centric to the insert allowing equal tape lap over insulation on both sides.
