Imcoa

Imcoa® is 100% non-particulating polyethylene foam pipe insulation. Its closed-cell structure won’t wick moisture, retards heat loss and helps prevent condensation that could cause mold to develop over time. The SS options have an easy-to-install self-seal closure system. Choose sheets or rolls when you need to insulate large pipes or vessels.

Applications

Imcoa is used to retard heat loss on hot water pipes and to prevent freezing of all water pipes. It is available in a wide range of wall and sheet thicknesses. Imcoa has a low thermal conductivity and very low water vapor transmission rate. This low-density product demonstrates excellent thermal, physical and chemical resistant properties and has a broad service temperature range between -297°F and 200°F (-183°C and 93°C). It is ideal for residential applications but can be installed in light commercial and light industrial projects as well. It is acceptable for use with heat tracing/heat tape.

Installation

Imcoa pipe insulation is semi-slit and can be completely slit by hand. Imcoa SS and W SS are pre-slit with a factory applied pressure sensitive adhesive to both seam surfaces and has a release liner for easy installation. All butt joints should be properly sealed with ArmaFlex 520 or ArmaFlex 520 BLV contact adhesive. When Imcoa sheet is applied to equipment, use 100% coverage of ArmaFlex 520 contact adhesive. Both surfaces to be joined should be coated and then joined after adhesive is dry to the touch. Compression joints with adhesive applied should be used on all butt edges.
