What are the various types of Laminated reinforced Insulation facing?

Posted on 05/21/2023

Reinforced insulation facing refers to a type of protective covering or barrier used in various applications to enhance the insulation properties of a material. It is additional layer made of reinforced Aluminum foil or PP film. Facing acts as an additional barrier that helps protect construction from moisture and damage from the elements. The reinforced Insulation facing is both a vapor barrier and a flame retardant.

Laminated reinforced Insulation facing

FSK Insulation Facing: 

 FSK (Foil-scrim-kraft) is laminated 5 layers of structure, the outer layer is Aluminum foil and Kraft paper. The middle layer is the Glass fiber layer double side coated with Flame-retardant adhesive, it increased tensile strength of FSK, and the Aluminum foil and Kraft paper are firmly bonded.

FSK as a laminated reinforced insulation facing protects insulation materials as like as a jacket. FSK is most commonly used to exposed surfaces of Duct wrap, HVAC Ductwork, Exterior wall insulation, Metal building insulation, Pipeline insulation, Hot water tank insulation.

PSK Insulation Facing:

PSK (PP-scrim-kraft) is laminated 5 layers of structure, the outer layer is Polypropylene film and Kraft paper. The middle layer is the Glass fiber layer double side coated with Flame-retardant adhesive, it increased tensile strength of FSK, and the Kraft paper and PP film are firmly bonded.

PSK reinforced insulation facing meet all your needs for air-condition duct wrap, duct board, metal-building thermal insulation, pipeline insulation and industrial insulation.

ASJ Insulation Facing

ASJ (All service Jacket) is laminated 5 layers of structure, the outer layer is Aluminum foil and White Kraft paper. The middle layer is the Glass fiber layer double side coated with Flame-retardant adhesive, it increased tensile strength of ASJ, and the Aluminum foil and White kraft paper are firmly bonded.

ASJ is a special FSK facing turned inside-out, exposing white, bleached kraft paper. The industry also has several tapes and mastics available to match the white kraft paper, and ensure the appearance of the ASJ facing remains crisp and seamless.

D/S Reflective Aluminum Foil Insulation

Double side reflective aluminum foil insulation material is laminated using 2 pure Aluminum foil and 1 layer of Kraft paper as well as 1 layer of fiberglass scrim reinforcement. PE adhesive or flame retardant adhesive is adopted as the bonding agent.

The D/S Reflective Aluminum Foil Insulation used as facing and insulation under roofs, in walls behind cladding or under timber floors, for residential and commercial building. Combining with glasswool / rockwool / mineral wool / foam insulation, it is excellent as a vapor barrier for air-conditioning ducts, pipes and vessels.

When choosing a reinforced insulation facing, it is important to consider the specific needs of the application. The type of facing, the thickness of the insulation, and the adhesive used to bond the facing to the insulation all play a role in the overall performance of the insulation.
