A Distinguished History
Armaflex, the first flexible insulation product, was invented in 1953. This introduction Armaflex marked the establishment of a new branch of industry – flexible technical insulation. Armaflex is now the world’s best-known brand for flexible technical insulation, and the brand name has become an eponym in the building materials industry.
Armacell has contributed greatly to the professionalization of the sector and has set industry standards throughout the world in its role as a technology leader. Almost all significant innovations in the field of flexible technical insulation materials have been introduced by Armacell. In addition to conventional thermal insulation materials to protect against heat and cold, the company currently offers a wide range of covering systems, fire-protection and noise-control solutions, pre-insulated pipes, special insulation systems for specific industry applications, and the accessories to match.
Armacell’s insulation materials are designed for new and existing installations. They are used in residential and non-residential buildings, process industries, transportation, and the oil and gas industry.
Armacell’s product solutions incorporate both superior functionality and ease of installation. The company continually invests in research and development to strengthen its position as a manufacturer of technologically pioneering products.
