XLPE Tubes

Aerofoam® XLPE Tubes are made from closed cell cross linked polyolefin foam with excellent properties in terms of condensation control, long term thermal block and sound absorption. The polyethylene tubes have thicknesses and the diameters, which match most of the usual pipe sizes up to 40” and can be coated with foil or can be plain.

For more information please view our catalogue here.

The Aerofoam® XLPE tubes have a very good dimensional stability, showing a “memory effect” (they tend to come to their original shape after being compressed).

The tubes represent no hazard to the human health, being used no CFC or HCFC in their production and having a very low VOC level. They are considered environmental friendly products (with low Ozone Depletion Potential – ODP – and Global Warming Potential – GWP) and comply with the LEED requirements, helping buildings to get more LEED points.
