Aerofoam® XLPE N-CLAD system contains sheets, rolls, tubes, and tapes. Insulation foam is made of closed-cell crosslinked polyolefin coated with a strong and durable jacketing, which replaces costly and complex aluminum, zinc-plated steel or stainless steel sheet facings. The foam has excellent properties in terms of condensation control, mechanical and chemical resistance, long term thermal block and sound absorption.
Aerofoam® XLPE N-CLAD sheets, rolls, tubes, and tapes have very good dimensional stability, showing a “memory effect” (they tend to come to their original shape after being compressed).
Aerofoam® XLPE N-CLAD sheets, rolls, tubes, and tapes are an economical solution compared to the expensive and labor-intensive aluminum, zinc-plated steel or stainless steel cladding. Some of the benefits are the following: less-skilled labor required, fast installation (50% faster than metal cladding), lightweight material, safe to use (N Clad jacketing – no safety equipment required), easy to cut, no drill required (light punching tool is enough), no power tools required, easy and light to lift and carry, N Clad jackets can be cut on-site without waste (on a cutting table), space-saving storage.
