CORAFOAM ® PIR insulation
CORAFOAM ® Polyisocyanurate (PIR)
CORAFOAM ® line offers both low-density and high-density foams in the range from 32 to 800 kg/m³, Low densities have better thermal properties (32-60 kg/m3) and are the first choice for the insulation of walls, tanks, pipes, while high density foams (80 – 800 kg/m3) are better for applications that will support mechanical stress, such as weight (insulated pipe supports).
CORAFOAM ® Low density boasts a high thermal efficiency meaning it is an effective temperature insulator. Coupling this with high degree of fire resistance (class 1 ASTM E84), high dimensional stability and competitive price is why PIR is used in the specification for cryogenic piping and vessels on the Gorgon Gas Project. PIR is in use on other LNG processing facilities around Australia and internationally.
CORAFOAM ® High density foams (80-800kg/m3) are ideal for pipe supports or thermal breaks. They have a high thermal conductivity to density ratio and will retain their mechanical properties at cryogenic temperatures.
