Technical data
Thernal Performance

Tarecpur is one of the most thermally efficient insulation materials available. It retains its thermal performance under the most severe operating conditions by virtue of its closed cell structure and high resistance to moisture absorption. Tarecpur has a thermal conductivity value of 0.024 W/m·K / 0.166 Btu·in/hr·ft2·ºF. A low thermal conductivity allows specified thermal performance standards to be achieved with a minimal thickness of insulation. This is particularly significant where space saving is important. A thinner insulant can facilitate installation in confined spaces. Furthermore, it can often result in a lower surface area and therefore savings in finishing materials.
Fire Performance

Tarecpur is a thermoset material and unlike thermoplastic materials, it does not melt or produce flaming droplets when exposed to fire. It is rarely used without some form of additional facing. The type of application and facing material used should be considered in assessments of fire performance. For applications where fire performance is a particular issue, the use of products from the Tarecpir range of rigid polyisocyanurate insulation or the Kooltherm range of rigid phenolic insulation should be considered.
Temperature Range

Tarecpur may be used for pipework and equipment operating within the temperature range –180ºC to +100ºC / –292ºF to +212ºF. For higher operating temperatures up to +200°C / +392°F the use of products from the Tarecpir range of rigid polyisocyanurate insulation should be considered.
Moisture Resistance

Tarecpur has a 95% (or greater) closed cell content, which makes it non–wicking and highly resistant to moisture penetration. This is particularly valuable in humid conditions where the build up of moisture can compromise the performance of lesser insulation materials. When used in conjunction with a vapour tight facing, Tarecpur provides a system which is totally moisture resistant.
Chemical Resistance & Compatibility

Tarecpur has an excellent resistance to a wide range of oils, solvents and chemicals. Its compatibility with most solvent based coatings and adhesives, and polyester and epoxy resin based coatings, and GRP resin systems, allows it to maintain its physical integrity when in contact with such substances. Tarecpur is particularly suited for applications where it comes into contact with liquid polyesters.

Mechanical Performance

Tarecpur is a lightweight insulation material with a high strength to density ratio, good dimensional stability and excellent mechanical characteristics. Due to the combination of its excellent thermal performance and remarkable mechanical strength, Tarecpur is an exceptional insulation material for general thermal insulation applications or the insulation of refrigerated vehicles. In particular, when utilised to insulate refrigerated vehicles, Tarecpur maintains its physical integrity when subjected to repeated shocks and vibrations over the life of the vehicle.
