XLPE Tubes

Aerofoam® XLPE Insulation Tubes are manufactured in India from closed cell cross linked polyolefin foam.  Featuring excellent condensation control, long term thermal blocking and sound absorption properties, the polyethylene heat insulation tubes are available in a range of thicknesses and diameters for use with standard pipe sizes up to 40”.  The tubes can be coated with foil or can be purchased without a coating.

The Aerofoam® XLPE polyethylene tubes offer very good dimensional stability, exhibiting a “memory effect” which enable them to retain their original shape after being compressed.

The tubes do not present a human health hazard with a production process that is free of CFC and HCFC, resulting in very low VOC levels.  The product is considered environmentally friendly with low Ozone Depletion Potential (ODP) and Global Warming Potential (GWP) and complies with LEED requirements which aid buildings in accumulating more LEED points.
