K-FLEX IN CLAD JACKETING

K-FLEX IN CLAD JACKETING

K-FLEX IN CLAD special polymer cladding is suitable and well recognised solution for Oil&Gas, Industrial, Petrochemical and Marine applications. The clever and easy to install solution suitable to protect thermal insulation material (MMF, PU, Cellular glass, FEF, etc.) in order to offer: Water and Vapour tight, Oil and grease resistance, reduces the risk for CUI, UV stability, Marine salt water resistance and Mechanical resistance. K-FLEX IN CLAD special polymer jacketing, thermoformable that reduce installation time and keep maintenance costs low.
