However, he explained that following the new regulations, PUR (polyurethane) and PIR (polyisocyanurate) foam which has been traditionally used for pre-insulated ducts does not meet the safety criteria, but phenolic foam
fits right in.
The substrates analyzed were: coconut shell fiber, phenolic foam
and expanded vermiculite.
Phenolic resin is used to create phenolic foam
insulation board which does not burn.

& Others) & Application (HVAC, Refrigeration, Oil & Gas, Chemicals & Others) Global Trends & Forecasts To 2018
A variety of polymers was considered for insulation systems including polysulphone, polyether sulphone, polyurea, five-layer PP foam, polyamide thermal barrier and fivelayer PP, HT rubber, syntactic phenolic foam
and syntactic epoxy with a PU outer insulation layer.
Many other installation boards are suitable, such as perlite boards (manufactured from volcanic materials combined with organic fibers and waterproofing binders), and a host of glass fiber boards, polyurethane foam and phenolic foam

The substrates were: coconut shell fiber with crushed stone #3 (CFCS3), phenolic foam
(PF), expanded vermiculite (EV) and zeolite (Z).
Resolco developed their own resin manufacturing process used to make Insulphen phenolic foam
insulation, produced as a moulded bun or block of foam.
Low temperature insulation materials consist of a wide range of materials such as polystyrene, polyurethane, phenolic foam
, cellular glass and polyisocyanurate among others.
