With a thermal conductivity as low as 0.021W/m.K (at 10°C mean), Kooltherm® Insulation is the most thermally efficient insulation material commonly used. A low thermal conductivity allows specified thermal performance standards to be achieved with thinner insulation. The superior thermal performance of Kooltherm® Insulation derives mainly from its closed cell properties. Its closed cell structure has been optimised to resist heat transfer. The closed cells have a small solid to void volume ratio, are small and uniform in size, and their construction very fine with extremely thin walls and minimum point contacts (struts).They are filled with a thermally efficient CFC/HCFC-free blowing agent that has zero Ozone Depletion Potential (ODP) and low Global Warming Potential (GWP).As a result of its closed cell structure, Kooltherm® Insulation is unaffected by air infiltration – problems that can be experienced with mineral fibre and which can reduce thermal performance.

Kooltherm® Insulation has a 95%( or greater) closed cell structure, which makes it non-wicking and highly resistant to moisture penetration. The risk of moisture absorption into the insulation is effectively eliminated as the factory-applied aluminium foil facing to Kooltherm® Pipe Insulation System products provides a high performance vapour barrier jacket.

Kooltherm® Insulation and Kooltherm® High-Density Insulation have been fire tested to AS/NZS 1530.3:1999 at ATWA Product Testing, achieving the results in the indices for regulatory purposes as set out in the table below. Kooltherm® densities of 37 kg/m3, 60 kg/m3, 80 kg/m3 & 120 kg/m3 were tested, with no specimens igniting and all specimens achieving the best possible performance for Smoke developed and Spread of Flame.

  • Ignitability Index 0
  • Spread of Flame Index 0
  • Heat Evolved Index 0
  • Smoke Developed Index 0 – 1

Kooltherm® Insulation and Kooltherm® High-Density Insulation are based on award winning patented technology. They are CFC/HCFC-free non-fibrous, premium performance rigid thermoset modified resin insulants manufactured with a blowing agent that has zero Ozone Depletion Potential (ODP) and low Global Warming Potential (GWP).
