Insulation for vessels

Polyurethane (PUR) and polyisocyanurate (PIR) rigid insulation has a superior thermal performance and offers one of the thinnest solutions available on tanks and vessels.

Man-made-mineral-fibre (MMMF) is susceptible to water penetration and this can have a severe affect on its thermal performance. PIR/PUR insulation is resistant to moisture penetration because of its closed cell structure. Consequently the thermal performance of PIR/PUR is retained even under the most severe operating conditions.
