Thermobreak is a leading flexible thermal insulation material made from Physically (irradiation) Crosslinked closed-cell, polyolefin foam, factory bonded to pure, reinforced aluminium foil and acrylic tissue adhesive.
With a lower thermal conductivity than any other flexible insulation material, almost zero vapour permeability, and its all-in-one concept, Thermobreak provides superior energy saving performance, fast and simple installation, and trouble -free operation in a variety of environments. It is also proven to be cost effective against other insulating materials. Thermobreak is manufactured by Sekisui Chemical ( Japan), the world’s leading and largest manufacturer of crosslinked polyolefin foam. The Middle East market is one of the major export areas. With over 500 projects in the Middle East since 1996, Thermobreak has proven its superior performance and reliability in the adverse conditions prevailing in the region. Huge recent projects such as Sidra Medical Centre ( the biggest hospital in the Middle East), Qanat Quartier at the Pearl Qatar, Golden Mile, and Kingdom of Sheba, Fairmont resort at the Palm Jumeirah, Medinat Jumeirah ( Dubai) , Rotana Khalidia in Abu Dhabi, illustrate the trust and faith of many leading consultants in Thermobreak insulation.
The “all in one” insulation concept has proven to be a major advantage, especially in the Middle East region where fiberglass was dominating. It is a concept whereby the insulation material reaches the site and does not require any further accessories, coverings, vapour barrier etc, and it is extremely easy to install irrespective of the skill of the installers. Being closed cell, plus with the added protection of reinforced aluminium foil, the advantages in condensation prevention and thermal efficiency are obvious. It is an insulation material that lasts for years without any adverse effects such as compression, water absorption, or bacterial growth. With the worldwide focus not only fire but also smoke and toxicity, Thermobreak™ has been extensively tested to cover both aspects of safety: BS 476 Parts 6 & 7 (class 0), ASTM C411 ( NFPA 90A and 90B compliance, UL94 (listed product), FM Approval, ISO 5659 ( Smoke Density and Toxicity), BS 6853 ( Smoke Density and Toxicity). Thermobreak is also a certified Green Star product (VOC emissions) with a Zero Global Warming Potential.
