Morgan Advanced Ceramics WDS® FlexiPipe Porextherm
Categories: Ceramic; Oxide; Silicon Oxide

Material Notes: WDS® FlexiPipe is a microporous insulation material which has an extremely low thermal conductivity coefficient giving it very good insulating properties. WDS® FlexiPipe is heat sealed in a PA/PE laminated film or alternatively in a multilayer aluminium foil for purposes of flexibility. To help the installation of the application the WDS® FlexiPipe is supplied under a light vacuum. This allows an easy application. The film may be damaged during use; depending on the service temperature however this does not affect the function of the insulating material. WDS® FlexiPipe consists of inorganic oxides. The main constituent is fumed silica; the other components are opacifiers to minimize infrared radiation. WDS® FlexiPipe (core material) is not flammable and meets the requirements of IMO FTPC part 1 and the classification A1 according to DIN EN 13501-1 for panel cores WDS® Ultra.

Application: WDS® FlexiPipe is specially developed for applications in pipe insulation. It offers a compact solution for thermal insulation due its light weight properties and significant reduction in thickness. The low density and the specially developed IR opacifiers contained in these grades greatly reduce the thermal conductivity of WDS® FlexiPipe systems.

Typical applications: WDS® FlexiPipe is already successfully used as insulation material in the following areas: Deepwater Oil Production, District Heat Supply, Power Plants, Chemical Plants.
