ArmaFlex FRV - enhanced product range with a new look

  • Closed-cell insulation with enhanced performance and indoor air quality, especially for vertical pipe risers
  • Easy-to-read collateral in a contemporary design, including environmental product declaration (EPD)
  • Updated product range and packaging for Australia, New Zealand and Thailand
  • Changes to be implemented from 1 April 2019


Singapore, 1 April 2019 Armacell, a global leader in flexible foam for the equipment insulation market and a leading provider of engineered foams, today announced enhancements for the promotion and distribution of ArmaFlex FRV, a closed-cell flexible foam material.


Specially designed for insulating heating, ventilation, air-conditioning and refrigeration (HVAC&R) systems in high-rise buildings, ArmaFlex FRV is compliant with the latest fire performance standards, supported with an environmental product declaration and GREENGUARD GOLD certification for green building assessments and infused with Microban® antimicrobial product protection for healthier indoor air quality.


We are the first flexible elastomeric foam insulation manufacturer to be independently certified to AS/NZS 4859.1 and to receive the OCEANAMARK™ by IAPMO R&T Oceana. In 2009, we were also the first manufacturer of flexible technical insulation materials to publish environmental product declarations based on an independently conducted life cycle assessment,” says Malte Witt, Vice President APAC & Chief Marketing Officer. “I am positive that the recent changes will strengthen ArmaFlex FRV’s position as the preferred insulation material.


In line with the Group's new visual identity, the packaging and marketing collaterals are being updated and will be implemented in April 2019. ArmaFlex FRV will also be available in Thailand as a replacement to ArmaFlex MC.
