Tarec PIR M1-CR pipe

High performance industrial insulation

The Tarecpir range of rigid polyisocyanurate (PIR) insulation is suitable for a wide spectrum of industrial applications, such as process, petrochemical and LNG. It can be delivered as a finished product (Pipes or Pipe supports) or in block. Whilst retaining all of the benefits of rigid polyurethane insulation, Tarecpir has a considerably increased resistance to burning and spread of flame.

Product range

Tarecpir B2  is recommended for building services where increased thermal efficiency is priority. Tarecpir B2 has a thermal conductivity of 0.026 W/m·K.
Tarecpir M1-CR is a high performance insulation product for low temperature and cryogene applications in industrial processes and building services. Tarecpir M1-CR has been developed for cryogene applications where fire performance, enhanced compressive strength and resistance to thermal stress are required. Its fire performance D/DL - s3,d0 (foam core) according to EN 13501-1, a flame spread index ≤ 25 under ASTM E84, and its resistance to thermal stress makes the Tarecpir M1-CR ideal for insulation with a working temperature as low as -200°C
Tarecpir HD (high density) is a specially modified rigid polyisocyanurate insulation available in a range of densities up to 320 kg/m³ . Tarecpir HD is particularly suitable for use in load bearing applications, making it ideal for insulated pipe support. The use of Tarecpir HD for insulated pipe support inserts can help to avoid the potential problems of cold bridging and / or energy loss between the pipework and support structure.
Tarecpir HT (high temperature) is a specially modified rigid polyisocyanurate insulation with a standard density of 40 kg/m³. Other densities are available upon request. Due to its special formulation, Tarecpir HT is capable of dealing with a continuous working temperature of +200°C. When Tarecpir HT is used at high temperatures, the insulation maintains its closed cell content and its dimensional stability throughout its in service life. Tarecpir HT has been used on many high demanding projects worldwide.
The enhanced temperature range allows the ussage of Tarecpir HT on steam lines, bitumes, asphalt and industrial processes up to 200°C.

Product Information

Tarecpir is one of the most thermally efficient insulation materials commonly available. It retains its thermal performance  by virtue of its closed cell structure and high resistance to moisture absorption. Tarecpir has a thermal conductivity as low as 0.024 W/m·K. 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.
Hand and flame
Tarecpir is a thermoset material. When subjected to fire, its outer surface forms a strong carbonaceous layer that retards further flame spread and penetration. Unlike thermoplastic materials, Tarecpir does not melt or produce flaming droplets when exposed to fire. Tarecpir satisfies the requirements of major industrial specifications such as a Flame Spread Index (FSI) of 25 or less in accordance with ASTM E84. 

Tarecpir can achieve, in combination with a foil, reaction to fire classes up to C/CL-S2, d0 in accordance with EN 13501-1. 

In addition to the above, Tarecpir achieves excellent fire classifications against other methods widely used and recognized within the industry, such as IMO Resolution MSC 307(88), NF P92-510 and GOST 30244.
Tarecpir may be used for pipework and equipment operating within the temperature range –200ºC to +120ºC, and even up to +200ºC for Tarecpir HT.

Tarecpir 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. It is an ideal insulation material for cold, chilled and low temperature hot water pipework. When used in conjunction with a vapour tight facing, Tarecpir provides a system which is totally moisture resistant.
Tarecpir is resistant 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, allows it to maintain its physical integrity when in contact with such substances.
