Insulation Materials

Insulation materials are sold in many different types or forms - from insulating sheets, padding, bulk fibres, films, to tapes, rods and ropes. RS Components offer a wide range of high-quality products to suit every application.

What type of insulation materials do I need?

Thermal insulation is designed to minimise heat loss or transfer between equipment, devices, rooms, buildings and spaces.

Thermal insulating bulk fibres are ideal for general roof or cavity wall infill, furnace/kiln lining, or high-temperature repairs.

Thermal insulating sheets are often used in homes, ovens, automotive work, and various industrial settings. Fibreglass, mineral wool, cement board, PU foam, silica and polystyrene sheets are easily cut to shape.

Thermal insulating rods and bars offer high thermal shock resistance in high temperature or heat transfer applications.

Glass Fibre Tape & Glass Rope is used for jobs such as insulating pipes, high-temperature flue sealing, and various caulking applications.

Plastic Film offers robust electrical insulation at high temperatures and can be easily cut or punched for wiring and circuitry.

Materials include Mylar, mica, PEEK or polypropylene - perfect for industrial or electronic jobs such as coil/phase separation, slot lining, automotive repair and medical equipment.

Acoustic Insulation (also decibel reduction, sound insulation and soundproofing materials) are used on floors, walls, ceilings, machinery, vehicles, studios and public spaces to limit noise leakage.

Self-Adhesive Foam Sheets are easy-cut foam panels with adhesive backs for fuss-free mounting.

Acoustic Insulation sheets tend to be thin, low-density foam panels, ideal for wall cavities and door trim.

Felt Sheet is a man-made fabric made of natural or synthetic fibres. Felt durable and resistant to wear and tear. Felt sheet has many uses including gaskets, seals and reducing or absorbing noise

Flame retardant foam insulation is used for noise damping where excess heat is a concern, such as machine panelling and HVAC systems.
