Armaflex Rail
The first closed cell insulation for increased fire safety in railway vehicles
more information

Armaflex Rail is the first closed-cell insulation material to offer greater fire safety for railway passenger vehicles. The product is the first to meet the Hazard Level 2 & 3 classifications according to EN 45545-2 (Fire protection on railway vehicles Part 2: Requirements for fire behaviour of materials and components).

Using Armaflex Rail on refrigerant pipework and air-ducts makes an important contribution to the high level of fire safety required in rail vehicles:

Integrated fire protection
closed-cell insulation material protects HVAC pipes against energy losses and condensation
flexible material, fast and easy to install
good fire properties and extremely low smoke density, achieving Euroclass Bs1 D0 rating for insulation tubes
10 times lower smoke development than standard elastomeric insulation product
self-extinguishing, does not propagate fire or produce burning droplets

Integrated vapour barrier
closed-cell insulation material with low thermal conductivity and high resistance to water vapour diffusion, providing long-term protection against energy losses and condensation
resistance to water vapour diffusion is built up throughout the entire insulation thickness
Microban technology offers additional protection against harmful microbes such as bacteria, mould and mildew

Available Formats
2m length tubes
3, 6, 9, 13 & 19mm thick sheet and self-adhesive sheets
50mm wide tape
specially formulated gel form reduced solvent adhesive
Armaflex Rail SD-C available with durable silver covering to meet Hazard Level 3 for rolling stock vehicles
Non-halogen Armaflex Rail ZH and ZH-C products available (with or without silver covering
