Premier Material Concepts provides extruded TPE for reliable outdoor insulation system

Premier Material Concepts : 20 November, 2006  (Company News)
Premier Material Concepts, custom manufacturers of TPE, ABS, HIPS, PP and acrylics for thermoforming, POP display material, converters and custom fabricators, has developed a unique thermoplastic rubber material for providing reliable insulation protection from weather in outdoor applications.
Premier Material Concepts, custom manufacturers of TPE, ABS, HIPS, PP and acrylics for thermoforming, POP display material, converters and custom fabricators, has developed a unique thermoplastic rubber material for providing reliable insulation protection from weather in outdoor applications.

The challenge:
Armacell, an advanced insulation and engineered foams company, wanted to improve the weatherability of their insulation for outdoor applications. Specifically: achieving UV protection and surface durability on ductwork and other exterior applications. Existing insulation systems needed to be painted with latex and mastic finishes which was not cost effective and did not function reliably over time. If not properly maintained the thermal performance of those products would invariably deteriorate.

The answer to the challenge:
Armacellís new product, ArmaTuff 25, is their exclusive Amaflex insulation laminated with a durable white TPE membrane extruded in sheet form by PMC then provided to a laminator to cap foam insulation. The closed cell nature of the Armaflex product offers exceptional water vapor transmission properties and the membrane provided by PMC protects the insulation outdoors without the need for painting. TPE products are known for excellent long-term outdoor weatherability and resistance to ozone, acid rain, most industrial pollutants and ultraviolet radiation.

The results:
In addition to meeting or exceeding physical performance requirements, the TPE membrane provided by PMC also helped to accommodate important price point issues. Because the material has made the insulation system maintenance free, this provides a value-added solution for Armacell customers
