ROCKWOOL Techtube

Application

ROCKWOOL Techtube is a high performance acoustic solution for numerous types of pipework and equipment that combats these performance challenges.

Description

A pre-formed pipe section layered with Acoustic Membrane and a reinforced aluminium foil outer. It has been specially engineered to facilitate the highest standard of noise control to pipework and circular ductwork. Unwanted noise transferred through pipework, can often be disrupting to building occupants.

Techtube can provide thermal and acoustic insulation to ductwork and equipment operating at temperatures ranging from 0˚C to 230˚C, though outer facing temperatures should not exceed 80°C.

Features and benefits:

  • Thickness maintained at corners, bends and fixing locations to maintain superior acoustic performance.
  • Single application of materials.
  • Easy to handle and install.
  • Excellent thermal insulation properties.
  • Techtube has excellent insulation properties up to 230˚C, suitable for most common ductwork applications.

pH neutrality

ROCKWOOL insulation is chemically compatible with all types of pipes, ducts, equipment and fittings (guidance is given in BS5970 regarding the treatment of austenitic stainless -steel pipework and fittings). Stone wool insulation is chemically inert. A typical aqueous extract of ROCKWOOL insulation is neutral or slightly alkaline (pH 7 to 9.5).

Durability

ROCKWOOL stone wool is highly resilient, durable and dimensionally stable, maintaining its thickness and shape over time. Moreover due to its fibre structure and overall flexibility, stone wool can easily fit into available spaces, helping in avoiding unplanned air gaps, cracks or other installation errors in the final construction, ensuring stable performance over time.

Biological

ROCKWOOL stone wool is a naturally inert and rot-proof material that does not encourage or support the growth of fungi, moulds or bacteria, or offer sustenance to insects or vermin.
