Kingspan’s U.A.E. Manufacturing Facility Changes Blowing Agent

Kingspan Insulation has announced that its Kingspan PalDuct Hydro System of pre-insulated ducting will be manufactured using a blowing agent, which has Low Global Warming Potential (GWP) and zero Ozone Depletion Potential (ODP) as standard.

Kingspan Insulation’s Dubai, U.A.E. manufacturing facility has altered its manufacturing process by installing a pentane tank primarily for the manufacturing of Kingspan PalDuct Hydro panels. 

Why did we make the change?

As part of the Kingspan Insulation philosophy of combining product innovation and social responsibility, Kingspan PalDuct Hydro can now be specified by engineers for projects required to comply with the increasingly stringent ODP and GWP regulations, such as Estidama in Abu Dhabi. Within the Esitdama Rating Systems, under the Stewarding Materials section, one credit point is available providing all thermal insulation used has an Ozone Depletion Potential (ODP) of zero and a Global Warming Potential (GWP) of less than five. 

Incorporating low GWP and zero ODP as standard will further enhance the environmental credentials of Kingspan Insulation’s environmentally accredited insulation range.  Advantages which already appeal to specifiers include an extremely low level of air leakage and superior insulating properties which can result in electrical savings.
