Proper installation is critical to the overall performance of the insulation and piping system. While choosing the appropriate type of insulation based upon the proper Insulation Criteria addresses your project's specifications, its installation requires further attention to the physical properties of the insulation material, matched with the particular circumstances of the environment in which it will be installed.
Though each individual project may present unique challenges, there are appropriate standards and guidelines for certain special types of installations which ITW Insulation Systems makes available to its customers by way of general documentation. Included among these are Thickness Tables which address the appropriate thickness at installation of TRYMER® polyisocyanurate insulation and Extruded Polystyrene Pipe Insulation Billet (XPS PIB) in a variety of circumstances, as well as Installation Guides, which offer more detailed information regarding the appropriate installation of ITW Insulation Systems products. These are offered to supplement the Technical and Safety Data Sheets catalogued within this site's Document Library. Please keep in mind that your local building codes may require special attention to details not covered in the general literature and that variations in service conditions and use may call for a design or specifying engineer to create specifications tailored to the needs of a particular application or owner.
ITW Insulation Systems has its own technical experts and related personnel who are ready to assist you with the provision of relevant information your specific project may require at installation. Please feel free to Contact Us for additional assistance.
