Aerocel Aerofix-U®

Aerofix-U

Aerofix-U® is a patented, closed-cell, lightweight polymeric rigid, high-compressive strength foam insulating pipe support, that is lined with closed-cell EPDM foam rubber, and encased in a zero-perm, weather-proof, corrosion-proof, EPDM polymer membrane with a high-performance pressure-sensitive closure system.

Aerofix-U® is designed for providing a high-strength, load-bearing insulation that will not compress or crush under loads imposed by active piping systems and their contents resting on the insulation material between the pipe and the pipe hanger. Aerofix-U® can be used in applications with service temperatures ranging from -328°F to +257°F, including ammonia refrigeration, halo-carbon refrigeration, chilled water, brine, domestic cold and hot water, hot water heating, solar water heating, and low-pressure steam. Hanger types that Aerofix-u® can be used with include trapeze(strut), split-ring, clevis, roller, clamps, and strap hangers. The rigid polymeric foam body provides superior insulating capacity and load-bearing properties to Aerofix-u® Insulating Pipe Hanger Supports. The closed-cell EPDM elastomeric insulation layer inside the rigid polymeric structure provides an anti-abrasion surface for contact with all types of piping materials, and absorbs the vibrations associated with operational pipe systems.

The AEROFIX-U® Hermetic System’s three-piece assembly is resistant to UV degradation, condensation and heat gain.

The crush-resistant AEROFIX-U® pipe-hanger inserts provide extra protection from damage caused by weight from piping that is suspended or resting on channels.

Self-adhesive PROTAPE® chemically bonds the two components to create an airtight seal at every joint. In this way, the AEROFIX-U® Hermetic System keeps moisture out by hermetically sealing your system from the environment.

The AEROFIX-U® is easy to install. All components are UV and weather resistant, requiring no protective paint. Our systems work over a wide temperature range, from -70° to 257°F. It is the highest-quality, longest-life elastomeric insulation system available.

The AEROFIX-U® Hermetic System Makes Call-backs a Thing of the Past.

  • Hermetically seals against the environment (moisture penetration) to prevent call-backs and conserve energy
  • The only UV and moisture-resistant elastomer tube insulation available
  • Crush-resistant pipe-hanger insert that safeguards the integrity of the insulation from crushing
