FOAMGLAS® is a lightweight, rigid material composed of completely sealed glass cells. Each cell prevents the transfer of air and moisture through the insulation, even under thermal cycling. Uses of Foamglas range from insulating your home to pipework, tanks, and vessels in an industrial setting.
Due to the manufacturing and material choices made in the production of FOAMGLAS® the insulation can meet many of the most important factors of insulation.
The closed cell structure of the material means that it is impermeable to moisture, organics, vapour, and many chemicals. There are also no components that are flammable. These benefits are increased over the long life of the insulation material.
The closed cell structure of Foamglas does not lose strength and is dimensionally stable for the life of the material.
