Introduction
Insulation is no simple task: the aim is to guarantee not only
real, permanentprofitability, but also an optimum ratio between
quality/price/insulation capacity.
The real professional today is a consultant and expert.To help
the professional to carry out this task, NMC sa has designed
a complete system of pipe shells, sheets and accessories for
professional pipe insulation: CLIMAFLEX®, CLIMAFLEX® XT,
CLIMAFLEX® STABIL and CLIMAFLEX® SYSTEM.
This brochure has been written specially for professionals. It is
designed to serve as an example of how to apply professional
insulation materials.

General fitting instructions
The fitting instructions set out describe the most common insulation jobs and how to carry them out correctly. They apply to both
existing and new piping installations.
Here are some practical points:
• T ool: perfectly sharpened knife or cutter, punches
corresponding to the common pipe outer diameters,
mitre box with template, flat brush with short, stiff bristles,
tape measure.
• Adhesive: be sure to use only NMC-FIX®. The adhesive is
spread thinly on both surfaces. After insulation work, wait
36 hours before putting the heating on.
• Working temperature: in order to guarantee that the adhesive
holds properly, do not work below + 5° C.
• Knives and cutters: take accurate measurement, allow 3 to 4%
with CLIMAFLEX® and upset when laying, to stop the
CLIMAFLEX® shrinking in length; insulate heating pipes only
when they are cold; cut the CLIMAFLEX® to size using a
mitre box.
•C
leanliness of materials: make sure that CLIMAFLEX® is clean
both inside and outside. Rinse off any dirt sticking to the
pipes, and then dry the pipes off. You can use Insul 3005 in
order to clean the insulation pipe.
•P
aint: CLIMAFLEX® can be painted with most of the latex and
emulsion paints.

temporarily after sticking awkward areas such as T-shaped
branches, elbows, valves, welding or soldering points.
Available in bags of 100.
• CLIMAFLEX® PE self-adhesive tape: available in
50 mm x 3 mm x 10 m rolls. Uses: seams, screwed fittings,
valves, tank outletsand all awkward areas.
• CLIMAFLEX® fabric tape: grey, 50 mm x 50 mm.

Insulating during pipe fitting
CLIMAFLEX® can be simply
pulled over the pipe.
For elbows, simply pull
the CLIMAFLEX® over the
elbow (longitudinal slit on
the inside of the elbow).
The individual
CLIMAFLEX® pipe sections
are stuck firmly on the cut
surfaces with NMC-FIX®
immediately after
adjustment.
10-11
Insulating after pipe fitting
CLIMAFLEX® is pre-slit.
Simply separate with
the knife or thumb
lengthwise …
… fit round the pipe, spread
the two surfaces of the slit
with a thin coat of
NMC-FIX®, and press the
insulation together after
allowing the regulation time
for the adhesive to dry
(finger test). For problem
areas, such as screwed
fittings, we recommend
fastening with a few clips.
For larger insulation
thicknesses, we
recommend making an
additional slit on the
inside of 2/3 of the
insulation thickness.
This makes the material
easier to open up, glue
and fit.
12-13
Angles
Cut the CLIMAFLEX® at a
45 - degree angle using a
mitre box …
… stick with NMC-FIX® …
… slit open the piece of
insulationthus formed on
the inside …
… apply and stick firmly
with NMC-FIX®.
14-15
Alternative solution for angles
Insulate as far as the
elbow.
Make the angle
(with inside diameter =
outside diameter of the
insulation), apply it and
stick firmly.
Pipe elbows (commercially available pipe elbows)
Measure the outside
diameter of the insulation
required …
… press down with the
template provided in the
slit area …
16-17
Elbows
… and start to cut at the
right outer point. Make
counter cuts in the same
position. Cut exactly the
same at every further point,
giving 5 segment cuts.
Glue on the inside …
… slit open the piece of
insulation thus formed,
apply and stick firmly
with NMC-FIX®.
18-19
T-shaped branches
In the case of T- shaped
branches, cut a T at a
45 - degree angle …
… slit open on the
inside …
… apply and stick firmly
with NMC-FIX®.
20-21
Alternative solution for T-shaped branches (1)
Insulate as far as the
T shape. Make the T shape
(with inside diameter =
outside diameter of the
insulation), apply it and
stick firmly.
Alternative solution for T-shaped branches (2)
Punch out the T- shaped
branches using the punch
in the slit area …
… slit open, apply and
stick firmly with NMC-FIX®.
22-23
Alternative solution for T-shaped branches (2)
Make a saddle cut in
the counterpart …
…and stick firmly with
NMC-FIX®.
Application tips for problem areas
In problem areas such as
valves, T- shaped branches,
screwed fittings, etc., …
… press in
CLIMAFLEX® clips as
an aid to installation in
the slit area.
24-25
Distributors / Pipe ends
Simply punch out the
required inside diameter …
… press onto the pipe end
and glue with NMC-FIX®.
Insulating support clamps
Apply insulation on both
sides as far as the clamp
and wrap round with
CLIMAFLEX® PE selfadhesive tape up to the
insulation level.
Adjust insulation to larger
dimensions and stick firmly
with NMC-FIX®.
26-27
Valves
Wrap up the valve body
with CLIMAFLEX® PEself - adhesive tape up
to the insulation level …
… apply larger pipe insulation
and stick firmly.
Alternative:
Use CLIMAFLEX® SYSTEM
(see page 31).
CLIMAFLEX® XT
Fit CLIMAFLEX® XT
round the pipe, tear off
both protective sheets
simultaneously and press
the insulation together.
The pieces of pipe are
stuck firmly after adjustment
on the cut sides with
NMC-FIX®.
28-29
Larger pipe diameters
For larger pipe diameters,
use CLIMAFLEX® Roll.
Measure the pipe with
CLIMAFLEX® sheet strips
and transfer to
CLIMAFLEX® sheet.
Cut to size, apply and
stick firmly.
Multi-layer insulation
Where there are several
layers of insulation, make
sure that the adhesion
seam is offset and the
upper layer is stuck to the
lower one at the pipe ends.
30-31
CLIMAFLEX® STABIL
The CLIMAFLEX® STABIL
range includes a fitting aid
which stands a few millimetres
above the pipe and allows
CLIMAFLEX® STABIL to be
drawn over it with no problems.
CLIMAFLEX® SYSTEM
Using the compatibility list,
choose the
CLIMAFLEX® SYSTEM
insulation cap that matches
the tap. (You may need to
adjust it with a cutter and
punch).
Place the insulation cap round
the tap and close with the
spring washer. CLIMAFLEX®
up to the insulation cap.
