40mm PHENOLIC BLOCK FOR STEEL TUBE
Description:40mm PHENOLIC BLOCK FOR STEEL TUBE – Phenolic Block Pipe Supports are used when thermal insulation of pipework and ducting is required. The primary function of the insulated pipe support is to isolate the pipework from the pipe support bracket itself in order to limit heat transfer to and from the pipework system whilst also limiting thermal bridging. The purpose of this is to allow a continuous vapour barrier to be carried through the support system. They are designed to support compressive loads imposed on pipework carrying water and other liquids at ambient temperatures.
Material: Phenolic supports are manufactured by Kingspan under the branding of ‘Kooltherm’. The Phenolic support blocks are manufactured from a closed cell rigid material and have a high density foam appearance.
Finishes: The Phenolic supports are bore coated and are CFC / HCFC free with a density of either 60, 80 or 120 kg/m3. The blocks are manufactured using both ‘cut from block’ and ‘continuous’ production methods and subsequently have either a grey or pink finish with a factory applied branded foil to their outer.
Connections / Fixing Methods: The Phenolic supports are predominantly held in place around the pipework with a suitable metal pipe bracket, allowing fixings to be connected to the bracket whilst this remains isolated from the pipework.
