K-FLEX IN CLAD Jacketing
Polymeric Outer Layer Jacketing
K-FLEX IN CLAD is a jacketing system specifically designed for particularly aggressive environments such as offshore platforms, oil rigs and petrochemical plants exposed to sun, seawater and general situations where a material with superior performance is required.
K-FLEX IN CLAD consists of a special CPE/PVC based flexible polymeric protective cladding thermoformable and thermosealable suitable to protect thermal insulation material (MMF, PU, Cellular glass, FEF, etc.).
It provides salt resistance, UV protection, high water vapor permeability resistance, weather protection and impact resistance. It is easy to install and combines constant performance with low maintenance requirements. All these characteristics make it an ideal product for industrial applications.
K-FLEX IN CLAD is dust free and fiber free, with high flame retardancy and low heat transfer, CFC and HCFC free with Ozone Depletion Potential of Zero. K-FLEX IN CLAD is free of any dangerous substance listed under the directive 1907/2006/EC (REACH, including SVHC list), 67/548/EC, 76/769/EC, 2002/95/EC (RoHS). These characteristics make it easy to comply with Health, Safety and Environmental requirements.
K-FLEX IN CLAD has many approvals and supervisions like CE Marine Mark approved (MED, module B, D), Type approval by American Bureau of Shipping, Type approved by Det Norske Veritas, Type approved by Lloyd’s Register, Type approved by Bureau Veritas.
The product is compliant to the requirements of Norsok standard R-004 ed 3 (par. 5.9 non metallic jacketing).
