CONTROL CONDENSATION - AND PREVENT TECHNICAL INSULATION FAILURES
Because 98% of all insulation failures are related to moisture, condensation should be avoided at all costs. Armacell’s technical insulation solutions enable you to control condensation BEYOND BETTER, and prevent moisture ingress, corrosion under insulation and system failure.
Learn all about condensation control in our whitepaper
How do you identify the ideal technical insulation solution for your project to ensure reliable condensation control? Find out by reading this whitepaper.
Taking condensation control Beyond Better
Watch this video to discover how our engineered solutions go Beyond Better to enable condensation control and deliver reliable insulation system performance.
WHY YOU NEED TO CONTROL CONDENSATION
Controlling condensation is critical because moisture can compromise your insulation system, leading to thermal loss. The right insulation thickness ensures that the surface temperature is always above the dew point, preventing condensation from occurring on the surface. In the event that there is moisture, a closed-cell material can help prevent water vapour intrusion.
Avoid condensation at all costs.
Wet insulation reduces thermal performance
Wet insulation cannot protect the insulated pipes against energy loss. Hence, thermal performance of the system will be reduced.
Moisture ingress leads to system failure
Moisture ingress deteriorates the insulation, which can result in failure of the installed insulation system.
Mould poses a health risk
If moisture accumulates in the insulation material, mould can grow. This can lead to poor indoor air quality, posing a serious health risk to building occupants.
The smallest detail can have significant consequences.
4% moisture ingress reduces insulation effectiveness by 70%
Incorrectly insulated cold systems sweat quickly, which can lead to surface condensation, causing significant damage within the system and building. Discover how flexible elastomeric foam (FEF), mineral wool and PUR perform in a moisture test conducted by Europe’s largest application-oriented research organisation.
Corrosion under insulation accounts for 10% of total maintenance budgets
Corrosion is rarely noticed until it has caused extensive damage and should always be avoided as maintenance could disrupt daily operations and incur significant costs. Discover how the right insulation solution can help prevent corrosion.
ArmaFlex - The preferred industry standard
With an innate water barrier built up cell by cell within lightweight and flexible ArmaFlex, any surface nick or tear of the material is limited only to the damaged area. ArmaFlex is customised to meet local requirements and often combined with other products into hybrid solutions.
ArmaFlex adhesives – Install it. Trust it.
You are assured a peace of mind when the complete insulation system has the Armacell seal of quality. Our products are designed to complement each other in an optimal fashion to deliver reliable performance every time. Discover why ArmaFlex adhesives are preferred on the job site. Install it. Trust it.
ArmaFix – prevents thermal bridging
ArmaFix prevents thermal bridging and condensation, while offering optimum reliability as well as being quick and easy to install. Used together with ArmaFlex, the system also acoustically decouples pipes and ducts from the building structure and reduces transmission of structure-borne noise in the building.
