Profile Home


FOAMGLAS® insulation is a lightweight, rigid insulating material composed of millions of completely sealed glass cells. This closed-cell structure provides a combination of physical properties ideal for piping and equipment at operating temperatures from -450°F to +900°F (-268°C to +482°C). FOAMGLAS® insulation is fabricated in a wide range of shapes, thicknesses and sized to meet virtually all industrial requirements. FOAMGLAS® cellular glass insulation systems are designed to improve both system performance and system longevity. Factory preassembly and pre-coating of complex forms ensures that the installation quality is superior and installation time is reduced.

FOAMGLAS® insulation is 100% glass with no binders or fillers. It simply cannot burn, even when in direct contact with intense flame. Consequently, it can actually serve to protect piping and equipment from fire damage, retard flame spread and help safeguard personnel. Wicking insulation is often a greater hazard than the fire itself. This hazardous situation can be avoided by specifying FOAMGLAS® cellular glass insulation. It is non-toxic and produces no smoke or noxious fumes and has been successfully tested in UL Through-Penetration Fire-stop Systems to demonstrate exceptional fire protection.

The use of FOAMGLAS® insulation for mechanical and industrial applications is at the heart of engineering design efficiencies for lowering energy consumption. In total, FOAMGLAS® insulation is part of the solution to manage energy consumption through effective insulation of mechanical and industrial applications. Saving energy by insulating buildings, factories, and facilities is just one step in the process to reduce consumption of natural resources. FOAMGLAS® insulation has been offering proven solutions towards this goal for decades with quality materials that provide long-term thermal performance that have no harmful impact on the environment.
