Izolon - insulation material widely used, deserves a fairly high valuation because of its versatility.Produced in accordance with the international ISO standard, therefore, it is made for the local market and for export.Field of application is rather broad: it is many areas of industry, manufacturing and others consider in more detail, which is made of a material which has the texture, characteristics and properties..

Izolon is a foam elastic type, it has a cellular structure, each cellIt is closed.It may be made of different density and thickness - which is another plus to the versatility of the material.Get Izolon not so simple: raw materials undergo a thorough processing (otherwise known as deep), so that it can be said that this high tech insulator.Earlier technology did not reach up to the current level of, say, 50 years ago, this level of the materials used except in the aerospace and med

ical fields.

Types izolona

izolona are the following types (see. Photos, videos). Izolon PES - is essentially a physically cross-linked polyethylene foam (transverse structure), Izolon IPPs - extruded (non-crosslinked structure).We are talking about the molecular texture of the material.These are the two most common and used type, but there are others: the PES-L-HP PES, PES-NH, IPP-L.The main difference is that - physically or chemically cross-linked molecular structure is.Quite often on the advice of professional engineers in the selection of these materials so as not to make mistakes, because quite easy to get lost in such a variety of brands and subspecies.

Marking is usually similar to the following, for example: PES 3015, where the first two digits 30 represent the multiplicity of foam, and the second two 15 - its thickness in mm.

Specifications izolona

Each of the varieties of learning a izolona individual specifications.They are a determining parameter in choosing the most appropriate option.

Stitched Izolon PES has closed cell structure, so its density is higher than that of IPPs.She is 30 - 200 kg / m³.Other features are as follows:

  • value of thermal conductivity - in the framework of 0,031-0,032 W / m * K;
  • thickness limits - 1-50 mm;
  • values ​​of sound absorption can reach 68%;
  • Water absorption - up to 1%;
  • Operating temperature - from -60 ° to + 75 °;
  • level of average water vapor permeability - about 0.001 mg / (m • h • Pa);
  • heat reflecting characteristics - reflect the performance of 95 to 97%;radiation indicators - 3 - 5%.

density izolona IPPs , having a non-crosslinked structure of the cells, lower than that of PES: 19-35 kg / ³.This species has the following technical data:

  • value of thermal conductivity - 0.040 W / m * K;
  • absorption values ​​are within 3-13%;
  • thickness limits - 1-16 mm;
  • water absorption - 0.2%;
  • operating temperature - from -80 ° to + 80 °;
  • level of average water vapor permeability - about 0.001 mg / (m • h • Pa).

Both types of material are considered to be highly reliable, can operate up to 90 years.

Advantages and disadvantages

It is hardly possible to name at least one disadvantage of the mother's, except that the relatively high cost and the need for careful transportation and storage.It is also important to install the insulation correctly - here again you may damage the external structure.

The advantages primarily include high thermal insulation properties.Of course, we consider other materials regarding this class.A distinctive feature of izolona - low thermal conductivity (0.03 W / m * K or more, depending on the variety and the manufacturer).In addition, this material has good barrier properties against moisture vapor.Here we are talking about so-called waterproofing.Each of the cells is closed - so the water invoice does not absorb, as a result protects the necessary surface as the moisture, and from steam fogging, etc.

Further mention should be made of high impact-sound protection -. And this despite the fact,the protective layer is very thin.Also, it has a high dynamic strength;moderately elastic.The proportion of small.Consider further positive characteristics.

Many insulators do not apply in some areas due to the fact that they have high chemical activity;Izolon almost same in this respect is not enabled.It is about interaction with the oil, gasoline, fuel oil, oils and other fuels and lubricants.You can add here and many other chemical compounds are flammable or poisonous nature, which also is neutral Izolon.

material has a long service life - up to 100 years, which is a big plus;possible reuse.Summarize can be such an important feature as environmental friendliness, safety - both for humans and animals - and the whole of nature as a whole;no adverse effects on soil, plants.
