What is Thermobreak?

Thermobreak is a leading flexible thermal insulation material. Thermobreak Tube insulation is a preformed tube thermal insulation for steel, copper and plastic pipes.

Construction of Thermobreak

Thermobreak is made from physically cross-linked, closed-cell, and polyolefin foam, thermally fused to pure reinforced aluminium foil.  Thermobreak® is also available with adhesive backing.

How does Thermobreak Preform?

Thermobreak thermal insulation provides superior energy saving performance.  It has a lower thermal conductivity than other flexible closed cell thermal insulation materials and has near zero vapour permeability.  Its all-in-one concept enables fast and simple installation, and trouble free operation, in a variety of environments.

Advantages of Thermobreak

  • Optimum Thermal Insulation – Thermobreak can solve tight clearance issues with its very low thermal conductivity (k = 0.032 W/mK @ 23 Deg C).
  • Water Vapour Resistance – Thermobreaks negligible water vapour performance (8.19 X10-15 Kg/Pa.s.m) means no additional vapour barriers or coatings are required.
  • Safe To Use – Thermobreak is completely user friendly and does not emit fibres or dust during installation or in service. Thermobreak® is non-irritant, odourless, and will not support bacterial growth.
  • Appearance & Durability – Thermobreak provides an appearance and performance that remains unchanged for the life of the building without sagging or giving a quilted look.
  • Green Building Compliant – Certified Green Star product (VOC), Zero Global Warming Potential (GWP), Made without Ozone destroying agents such as CFCs or HCFCs
