Supaphen Phenolic Pipe Insulation
Supaphen is a high performance phenolic thermal pipe insulation which meets the requirements of European standard EN14314 and is used primarily for the lagging of chilled, cold, hot and heating pipework.Supaphen Phenolic is highly thermally efﬁcient with an independently tested K value (thermal conductivity) of 0.024 W/m·K at 10ºC mean temperature.Supaphen has zero ozone depletion potential (ODP). Supaphen is closed cell, resisting moisture ingress. Supaphen is ﬁre and smoke safe and has been independently tested at Exova Warrington Fire in the UK as a pipe section to the required standard EN13501-1 achieving a rating of BL s1 d0, test reference WF352319. Supaphen is manufactured as a rigid block at a standard density of 40kg/m3. MW Insulation cuts pipe sections from these blocks to very close tolerances ensuring a tight ﬁt to the pipe. Supaphen Phenolic Insulation is manufactured with a silicate solution which is introduced at the foam manufacturing stage. This unique feature ensures the bore coating is present not only at the pipe/insulation interface but throughout the product making it useful after the product is cut for elbows, ﬁttings and welded joints. Additionally, and in line with the NES Y50 speciﬁcation, the inner bore of Supaphen pipe sections are also treated with a factory applied dust suppressing passivating bore coating solution. Supaphen is listed on the RIBA NBS BIM standards objects library for use on Government projects.
MW Insulation factory applies a plain Class O aluminium foil vapour barrier to the Supaphen pipe sections. Other facings are available on request. Supaphen is also available in higher densities for the manufacture of load-bearing thermally insulating pipe supports.
Independent test data is available on request.
