insulation is a lightweight, rigid insulation composed of
millions of completely sealed glass cells. Each cell serves
as an insulating agent. Foamglas®
is widely used in the cryogenic and hot line pipe supports
and is fabricated in various ranges of shapes, thicknesses
and sizes to meet the particular requirements of an application.
unique advantage that Foamglas®
has is its very low moisture absorption. Since, Foamglas®
insulation is full of closed glass cells, it resists moisture
in both liquid and vapor form. This guarantees the long term
performance of the insulation. Foamglas®
insulation's resistance to moisture ensures that, properly
installed, it retains its original thermal efficiency.
major advantages and applications of Foamglas®
insulation are listed below. For details about the physical
and mechanical properties of the Foamglas®
material, please refer to the table.
