Arma-Chek D

engineered foams engineered foams

The lightweight and easy to apply insulation system
resistant to mechanical impact

  •   Minimises risk of under insulation corrosion
  •   Provides continous long term thermal efficiency
  •   Significant reduction of installation cost


Designed for the on-shore and maritime industries, this black, woven glass fibre covering for Armaflex substrate offers good resistance to UV, mechanical impact and under insulation corrosion, while still remaining flexible in a moving environment. It will not stain or mark. Arma-Chek D is lightweight and its permanent curl characteristics make it quick and easy to install, without using heavy equipment.

Arma-Chek T

engineered foams engineered foams

Arma-Chek T is a non-metallic, flexible insulation and covering system developed for the harsh environments of the Oil, Gas and Petrochemical Industries. Arma-Chek T is widely used for onshore and offshore applications. It offers the most reliable solution for irregular shapes and hard to access areas.

The Armaflex substrate is covered with a durable terpolymer paint with an embedded layer of mat glass fibre.

The easy to apply and highly reliable solution for irregular shapes and hard to access areas.

  • Significantly minimises the risk of under insulation corrosion
  • Provides continuous long term thermal efficiency
  • No risk of galvanic corrosion
  • Increasing the life expectancy of insulation system
  • Considerably reduces the time for monitoring and maintenance
  • Significant reduction of installation cost
  • Easy application - no need for specialised machinery
  • Resistant to salt water (green water wash over)
  • Exceptional impact resistance
  • Highly resistant to UV, oil and chemicals
  • Non metal Cladding system - reduces Health and Safety risks
  • Complies with international standards


Armaflex Alu

engineered foams

Cleaner, Quieter Duct Insulation

  • Smooth surface - less dirt
  • Durable and erosion-resistant
  • East to Apply

The competitive advantages if specifying Armaflex Alu

  • Lightweight and flexible insulation - also available in self adhesive rolls for easy and speedy installation
  • Wide range of sheet thickness available
  • Excellent finish with aluminium covering for clean room applications
  • The low thermal conductivity, λ 0.035 W/(m.k) at 0°C, and good acoustic performance provide double benefits with one insulation system
  • Closed cell structure provides a very efficient built-in vapour barrier with a very high µ value of 12000 (DIN 52615)
  • Class O fire category means low fire propagation index, producing minimal contribution to overall heat release, for a high degree of fire protection and safety
  • Excellent resistance to the effects of ozone, oil and chemicals
  • Does not decay or contribute to the growth of fungus and bacteria
  • Easily cleaned with no shedding of particles
  • Requires minimal maintenance and assures long term lif of installation
  • Dust, fibre, CFC and HCFC free with an ODP of zero

Class O Armaflex is now available with a Class O rated aluminium foil facing for:

  • Improved appearance
  • Increased structural strength
  • Class O fire rating

Should the foil of Armaflex Alu become damaged, the insulation qualities will remain intact, unlike other insulation products, as they depend solely upon a built in vapour barrier within the closed cell structure of armaflex.
