Aeroflex Pipe Insulation

Airefrig is the one of the largest suppliers of pipe insulation on the Australian market with a fire rating of 0003. As the standards are raised for fire safety in Australia, this fire rating offers builders and consultants peace of mind when selecting insulation for projects as it is backed by a written, independent test report. Aeroflex is readily available in stock in every Airefrig branch in large quantities.

Aeroflex insulation is made of E.P.D.M. (Ethylene Propylene Diene Monomer) which is a high quality, lightweight elastomeric material providing long lasting pipe insulation. E.P.D.M. is:

  • moisture and vapour resistant
  • has a high UV rating and weather resistance, without the need for further coating applications
  • does not react with copper or stainless steel piping unlike other pipe insulation featuring a PVC composition

Fire Rating

Measurement RatingRange
Ignitability Index 0(0 - 20)
Spread of Flame 0(0 - 10)
Heat Evolved Index 0(0 - 10)
Smoke Developed Index 3(0 - 10)

Tested to AS1530.3 - 1999. (To be read in conjunction with the Building Code of Australia)

Aeroflex insulation is available in wall thicknesses from 9mm to 63mm to meet R Values required by BCA2011. All lengths are flexible and easy to fit, facilitating a speedier pre-assembly line or pipe can be easily split to apply to existing lines and joints sealed with Aeroflex adhesive. The Aeroflex adhesive chemically bonds the insulation and creates a strong, permanent vapour seal.

The Aeroflex pipe insulation is also available in the HT (high temperature) range. Providing a maximum service temperature of 150°C and independently certified to BCA 2011, the HT range is suitable for solar, heating and sanitary applications.

Included in the range is the TS-100 data logger, this logger is small enough to fit on your key chain however it is one of the most powerful and accurate instruments of its kind. The TS-100 measures dry bulb, wet bulb, feels like, dew point and relative humidity and is suitable for the refrigeration and airconditioning contractors.

Stephen Cross the General Manager of Airefrig commented "What appealed to us about the TS-100 data logger first was its compact design, affordable price, ease of use and high level of accuracy. However, its ability to download and export the logged data from site to your phone or tablet without having to connect to your computer was seen as a real time saver".

The TS-100 has over 500-hour battery life, adjustable logging increments, can download and export data from your phone and comes with the complementary CPS link app and is available in a compact protective carry case.
