Types of Mechanical Insulation

NCMI provides sales and service of mechanical insulation solutions for all kinds of systems, indoors and outdoors. Our experience includes service in commercial and industrial applications for a wide array of industries. We will work with you to specify the types of mechanical insulation suited for your systems’ needs, including determining the right thickness and material to achieve your goals. Whether you want to insulate to save energy, prevent heat loss or condensation, limit noise, or protect people, NCMI can determine the appropriate insulator for your project.


Fiberglass Pipe & Duct Insulation

Fiber glass pipe insulation is a molded, heavy density, one piece insulation made from inorganic glass fibers bonded with a thermosetting resin. Most fiber glass pipe insulations can be used on systems from 0° to 1000°F.


PVC, Aluminum & Stainless Steel Jackets

Jacket-style facing for protecting insulated components. Choose the best material for covering process piping for your institutional application.

Removable Insulation Covers

Removable Insulation Covers

Removable insulation covers are used for a wide variety of applications where maintenance personnel need to gain access to areas that would otherwise be unattainable or would go uninsulated. They can be used in a wide range of applications, including hot, cold, anti-freeze, and sound attenuation. Removable covers work especially well for valves, flanges, filters, pumps, flow meters, turbines, exchangers, exhaust systems, and steam traps.


High Temp Mineral Wool

High temp mineral wool (or rock wool) pipe insulation are precision-cut pipe coverings composed of high density mineral wool. It can be used in a wide range of applications for hot and cold piping ranging from –120°F to 1200°F. This product is frequently used in high temperature industrial process settings.


Cellular Glass Insulation

Cellular glass insulation is a lightweight, rigid insulating material composed of millions of completely sealed glass cells, providing an ideal solution for piping and equipment above ground, below ground, indoors, and outdoors, at operating temperatures from -450°F to +900°F (-268°C to + 482°C).


Closed Cell Rubber Insulation

Perfect for applications where there may be a lot of human contact, closed cell rubber products are dust- and fiber-free. Recommended for applications ranging from -40F to 200F (-19C to 93C).


Polyisocyanurate Insulation

Polyisocyanurate (polyiso) is a closed-cell, rigid foam insulation board made with recycled content that is widely used in commercial roofing. Polyiso insulation is the best choice as a cost-effective, energy efficient and environmentally responsible insulation product with proven fire and moisture resistance.


Aerogel Insulation

Utilizing aerogel insulation technology developed by NASA – the highest insulating material in existence – a highly efficient, aerogel-based insulating material that breaks conductive “thermal bridging” and can increase the overall wall R-value by more than 40 percent.
