Benefits

Advanced technology for superior performance

Safe Product - Fire Safety

  • Polynum thermal reflective insulation is produced under strict international standards, for safety and durability. To ensure maximum safety the products are tested for vertical, horizontal and corner flame Fire spreads, heat and smoke release following tough insulation fire related standards and regulations, such as EU, DIN, JIS, BS, AS/NZ and ASTM.
  • Polynum products are produced with safe to use FR, Fire Retardant additives, to ensure proper reaction (or shall we say, no reaction) to fire. A secretive polymer recipe used for PE bubbles is dripping free and contains zero risk to users.

  • Temperature stability from -104°F to +190.4°F.
  • Long life: insulating power remains constant over time.
  • 5 years product warranty.
  • Green Product

  • Cuts your energy bill… Cuts CO2 emission from air-condition units in summer and heating expenses in cold weather
  • Safe product that reduces building impact on human health (health and environment).
  • Has no health risk associated with it (compared with some of the available bulk insulation products), therefore, it contributes to the society's well being.
  • Reduces cost of operation, cost of transportation, cost of handling and wastage.
  • Polynum is an effective insulation solution, helping all of us to deliver a better and greener future!
  • Durable Product

    • Polynum is manufactured from top quality materials.
    • Polynum insulation is prepared with thick aluminum foil (8 to 18 microns, compared to 6 and 7 microns used by most producers). This guarantees sustainability, durability and top performances under various tough conditions.
    • We understand that insulation may be exposed to various tough conditions, which can promote corrosion (humidity, acidity, fumes, and so forth). To reduce corrosion risk (which will affect any reflective product performance) we have introduced a winning anti-corrosion formula applied onto our aluminum foil surface.
    • To ensure your long term satisfaction level we produce our insulation products in a glue-free process. Our bubble formation and lamination process occur at the same time, using a 200°C heating process. Such a production practice is proven to be very effective for reflective insulation's durability, minimizing possibilities for delaminating due to buildings and environmental conditions.
