The new standard insulation penofol

  • 2 Shiny foil insulation penofol

insulation material penofol is currentlyone of the most common in the field of energy efficiency.Such a universal heater is ideal for use in a home or apartment.Niche under the battery, slopes, all kinds of walls and roofs quite often they are insulated.For floor heating device is also used penofol, with a reflector in the form of aluminum foil.

main types

Basically all kinds penofol consist of polyethylene foam and a reflective layer.Consider the most common types.
Modification "A". Easy web material with one side coated with a reflective layer.Available thickness of 3, 4, 5, 8 and 10 mm.
Modification "B". web material with two reflective sides.Slightly warmer versatile than "A", with high demands on mechanical impact.

Modification "C".Self-adhesive insulation, versatile, easy to install.
Modification «ALP».Self-adhesive kind penofol, foil on one side only, laminated polyethylene protective film.Thickness 3 mm.

Some specifications foil penofol

  • Thermal reflection of up to 97%.
  • Application temperature -60 to + 100 Celsius.
  • Thermal conductivity without considering the heat reflection of 0.037 - 0.038 W / m ° C.
  • absorption of moisture from 0,65-3,5% (by volume).
  • specific heat of 1.95 kJ / kg ° C.
  • vapor permeability coefficient, m, of not more than (mg / m. Hr. Pa) than 0.001.

Where better to apply penofol as a heater

Wall insulation from inside penofolom not time-consuming process, using simple tools (knife, stapler, screwdriver), weatherization work can be carried out quickly and efficiently.Consider where and how best to use this type of material.

Type "A" is mainly used in combination with other insulation heat insulators, foam and polystyrene foam.For example, for thermal insulation of the walls from the inside (when there is no possibility to carry out an external mount).And you can lay it under the screed when installing floor heating.Primary isolation chambers storage products, not rarely spend this type of insulator, gluing it directly to the wall.

Type "B" is more suitable to install partitions and ventilation systems and insulation foiled penofolom any walls and ceilings is easy to do, it works as an independent insulation material.Double-reflective layer, inflicted on both sides, is great for this, and is intended.Penofol "B" well proven in the device of loggias and balconies.Mount it, pressing between the rail and the guides for the trim and the wall.

Type "C" longer find use for thermal insulation of cars, or rather of their thermal booths, various huts and technical premises.As a reflector of heat for radiators and various tanks, heat exchangers.


for everything "warm floor", such as the ALP used penofol, as the mortar in the raw state is aggressive to aluminum.And the sheets are mounted on a rough tie-up with the release foil on walls up to 8 cm and secure the seams aluminum tape (Scotch plating).After installation of all heating elements placed on top of mesh for reinforcement and finishing screed is poured.The edges of the cut after casting.In this application, it serves as an excellent reflector and heat insulator.

Universal application foil penofol outputs the product to the forefront by the heat conservation and efficiency in applications with minimum structural thickness.

Shiny foil insulation penofol

When insulating all sorts of surfaces, walls, ceiling, walls or pipes need to know exactly what, in each case to insulate the structure.There are plenty of insulation, but we will look at the fine, universal system."Izolon" lightweight, easy to use with high quality material.Perfect insulator of heat and cold.Take
insulation pipes, izolona brand PES 3004-3010 with an additional coated PET film on top of the reflector, for thermal and sound insulation, ventilation pipes, channels or tanks and heat exchangers.

Styrofoam or polystyrene problematic mounted on such uneven surfaces, and blow the foam generally expensive.Suddenly you have to withdraw or modify the design.Saves izolon in such cases, do not insulate the pipe bulky mineral wool on outdated technology.A izolon foil as a reflector, will serve for a long time and qualitatively.
And the price of such insulation is relatively small.

fastening methods and properties penofol
Option №1

on insulation can be applied loggias skeleton mounting rack 20 * 40 mm, pressed against the wall of the insulator with a pitch of 40 centimeters.Secure with screws, if the wall is made of wood, or use the quick assembly plug (pbuh) when the concrete foundation.Stitches prokleivat necessarily metallized tape.The thickness of the material selected, starting from the weather conditions in the winter and summer.When shopping for an experienced manager considers more precisely what kind of cold insulator is needed, taking into account the information in your area of ​​temperature and humidity.
Option №2

the combined insulation, polystyrene foam, or foam, penofol foil for the second layer (reflector), perfectly suitable.Take a cooling chamber or the heat exchanger insulation.Securing the mounting foam or dowel (a fungus), polystyrene plates through the night, you can glue adhesive brand penofol «ALP».But the mark "A" on one side reflecting quite easy to attach using a silicone-acrylic (modification must conform to the materials).Sometimes, despite the master stamp adhesive melted polystyrene unsuitable adhesives.

Option №3

On the floor under the laminate or floorboard not rarely rolled "B" modification of material with two reflective surfaces.Thickness of 5 mm.Such a substrate will last a long time, performing at 97% thermal protection of your floor.Fix it can be special is not aggressive and mastics glued to the base.Scotch brand Izospan FL seams taped perfectly.

№4 Option

vibration protection when using industrial equipment solves the laying izolona by machines.A mount additional layer (type "A") inside the partitions or walls, the noise in the workplace will fall by 28-30%.sound absorption of this material to 68%.Stapler and staples galvanized him perfectly retain the insulator on any surface other than concrete or plaster.On the solid wall of the reflector can be glued or mounted on the dowels, then closing the finishing layer (plastic, drywall).

Polystyrene foam from which is izolon is chemically resistant polymer material.Operating temperature range of foam brands: PES -60 to +100 degrees Celsius, the standard mark without extinguishing additives is quite flammable.
When fire is extinguished by standard fire extinguishing agents: foam or carbon dioxide fire extinguishers, sand, water.In case of fire use a respirator!

foam itself does not contain harmful substances that deplete the ozone layer of the atmosphere.After inhalation, skin contact does not cause allergies.As you can see such a versatile material such as foil izolon fairly easy to use in setting up all kinds of structures and premises.
