What to Specify?
The pipe insulation shall be Australian made Thermotec 4-Zero, fire retardant closed cell polyethylene foam, having a density of not less than 40kg/m3.
The pipe insulation shall have a wall thickness of either 15mm, 20mm, 25mm, 30mm, 38mm or 50mm (delete thickness not required) and incorporate a factory applied aluminium foil with a 25mm overlap. The pipe insulation shall comply with the requirements of the Building Code of Australia in accordance with AS/NZS4859.1, AS3500.4 and tested to AS/NZS1530.3
All insulation shall be installed around the pipe work surface as tightly as possible without gaps. The edges and ends shall be tightly butted together and all joints and foil overlaps be taped using a 48mm wide 4-Zero rated pressure sensitive adhesive aluminium foil tape.
Where necessary, the preformed sections shall be cut (using a sharp knife) and mitred, to ensure a tight fit around elbows and at tees.
Where pipe size exceeds 101.6mm outside diameter, the insulation shall be specified as Thermotec 4-Zero Thermalag with factory applied aluminium foil, cut to predetermined width to exactly fit the pipe diameter.
Where supports and spacer blocks are used to support the pipe work, the pipe insulation shall be butted tightly up to the spacer blocks and sealed using a silicon sealant.
Thermotec 4-Zero has been designed to provide maximum energy retention in pipework by enabling class leading thermal resistant materials to ensure the most efficient wall thickness to meet todays stringent requirements. Meets requirements of the Australian Building Code.
Thermotec 4-Zero is aluminium foil faced, which not only provides excellent resistance to fire, but also provides excellent heat reflecting properties.
Pre-formed to suit pipe diameters from 13mm to 101.6mm. Wall thickness 15mm, 20mm, 25mm, 38mm & 50mm.
