Free Webinar on Elastomeric-Foam Duct and Piping Insulation Set

Sept. 25, 2013
The hour-long Webinar will be held Wednesday, Oct. 16, at 2 p.m. EDT.

Closed-cell elastomeric-foam insulation for duct and piping applications—specifically, its unique properties and how they impact the efficiency and longevity of mechanical systems—is the subject of a free Webinar sponsored by Armacell and presented by HPAC Engineering to be held Wednesday, Oct. 16, at 2 p.m. EDT.

Titled "Energy, Sustainability and Life-Cycle Considerations for Specifying Pipe and Duct Insulation: The Benefits of Elastomeric," the hour-long Webinar will cover:

• Why closed-cell elastomeric foam provides more consistent thermal values for the life of a system than other insulating materials.

• The acoustic capabilities of elastomeric foam and how they compare with other common insulating materials.

• How closed-cell elastomeric foam protects against condensation.

• The beneficial life-cycle properties of closed-cell elastomeric foam.

• The role closed-cell elastomeric foam plays in maintaining indoor environmental quality.

• How elastomeric foam helps building owners meet current building standards and contributes to LEED certification.

• Specification tips to ensure optimum, long-lasting performance.

• Other applications that can benefit from closed-cell elastomeric foam.

The presenters will be Mike Resetar, technical manager, mechanical/technical insulation, Armacell, and Sandra Shattles, process engineer/plant chemist, Armacell.

Certificates of attendance will be provided to those who view the Webinar in its entirety live.
