RCF material provides both heat and fire insulation – backside temperatures can be held to under 280ºF in under .080″ insulation.
Insulation can be applied to metal tubing and ducting using an extremely lightweight process. The insulation is bonded to the metal or plastic tubing and needs no fasteners.
In flexible ducting, insulation is integral – accomplished as part of the manufacturing process. The parts are insulated and ready for installation as delivered. Weight is reduced by eliminating fasteners, by using a lighter weight solution and labor is reduced by eliminating the need for a second wrap around ducting.
Most RCF insulation applications can be achieved with materials no more than .080″ thick.
