Thermo-Protect Industrial InsulationA Mouldable Industrial Insulation, Designed to Save You Money on Wasted Energy
A Mouldable Industrial Insulation Material
Designed to Insulate Difficult Fixtures and Fittings
- Uninsulated Fittings 10%
In industrial plants about 10% or more of the equipment is uninsulated, not enough space being available is most often the reason why cost-effective and energy efficient insulation levels can’t be realised.
Thermo-Protect: is a new, ultra-flexible insulation system, developed by experts at the ContiTech Elastomer Coatings business unit. It is particularly easy to process, and is ideal for the thermal insulation and protection of flexible and complex line systems, piping systems, and components that are resistant to dynamic loads. Conti® Thermo-Protect provides reliable insulation, especially in setups involving high temperatures. The product consists of a special silicone rubber compound. It is supplied unvulcanised and can be moulded into required shapes, similar to plasticine. Under the influence of heat, the compound cures automatically within a few hours taking a maximum of around five weeks at room temperature and becomes a reusable moulded element with rubber elastic properties.
Thermo-Protect is the ideal insulation solution for highly convoluted or flexible line or piping systems. This product from ContiTech is used in areas in which conventional insulation materials are no longer sufficient. The mouldable compound can be easily attached to fittings and valves that were previously very difficult or even impossible to insulate and this in the high temperature range up to 250°C as well. Conti Thermo-Protect provides a reliable shield against heat and saves significant energy costs – for example in heating or thermal oil installations and in vulcanization presses.
Sheets: unvulcanized sheets are suitable for customized and flexible insulation of flanges, fittings and complex line systems, as well as machines and other systems. Sheets that have been vulcanized and are therefore stable but still flexible are suitable for the heat insulation of straight surfaces or as heat barriers.
Hoses: vulcanized hose insulation elements are particularly flexible and robust. Pre-slit hoses are available in various thicknesses. Closed insulation elements are also available.
Molded elements: we offer pre-manufactured and vulcanized molded elements for quick insulation of valves and fittings. Various formats are available to cover the most frequently used standard sizes of fittings. We can also supply made-to-order items.
Paste: the paste is supplied in cartridges for easy dispensing of the unvulcanized insulation material, making this the perfect solution for sealing slots and holes. An ideal add-on when using Conti® Thermo-Protect.
Accessories: our range of accessories widens the potential applications for Conti® Thermo-Protect. For example, we offer matching closure systems for reliable closure of the molded elements. A silicone adhesive is also available.
