Armacell: Armaflex Ultima Approved for Shipbuilding
The Armacell GmbH, Münster, Germany, is the first manufacturer which offers with the approvals from the classification societies Bureau Veritas, Det Norske Veritas and Lloyd's Register flexible technical insulation materials with low smoke density in a fire for use in shipbuilding.
Armaflex Ultima can be installed on refrigeration systems and chilled-water piping for air-conditioning systems on ships. The new elastomeric insulation material bears the European Wheelmark, which documents the product’s conformity with the stringent standards set by the International Maritime Organization (IMO).
The entire range of standard and self-adhesive Armaflex Ultima sheets and tubes is approved for insulating refrigeration systems and chilled-water piping for air-conditioning systems. The products can be glued using the Armaflex Ultima adhesives which were developed specially for Armaprene synthetic rubber. Apart from Armaflex Ultima 700, Armacell offers the non-drip, high-performance adhesive Armaflex Ultima RS850 and the solvent-free Armaflex Ultima SF990 adhesive.
