CEFEP, the European interest group for FEF and PEF insulation, was founded to provide a representative body for European manufacturers of elastomeric and polyethylene foam insulation materials. As a pan-European trade association, CEFEP is focused on promoting the universal benefits of FEF and PEF insulation. CEFEP was established under the umbrella of Güteschutzgemeinschaft Hartschaum e.V. (Celle) in 2012.
CEFEP is led by a shared vision to develop and promote common standards and design solutions for FEF and PEF insulation in order to realise todays energy conservation targets by insulating pipework, ductwork and associated parts of mechanical systems.
Assessing the requirements for pipe insulation in different application scenarios and demonstrating the performance contribution of flexible insulation systems towards the efficiency of an entire mechanical system.
Developing efficient design solutions which aim to improve the efficiency of a mechanical system. Demonstrating best practice for pipe and duct insulation for both renovation (retro-fitting) and new build systems.
Endorsing the effects of the closed cell efficiency of FEF and PEF insulation in regards to the overall energy conservation and longevity of the mechanical system.
FEF and PEF insulation materials inhibit a high level of moisture resistance which effectively functions as a water vapour barrier. Insulation materials with a high moisture resistance demonstrate a stable thermal performance from day 1 which forms an integral part of "closed cell efficiency".
Closed cell, flexible elastomeric foam insulation is used to provide reliable condensation control and longterm energy savings for the mechanical services in commercial and industrial applications. FEF seamless insulation systems improve the mechanical system efficiency by providing significantly energy savings. The in-built water vapour barrier reduces surface condensation effectively and reduces the risk of corrosion under insulation.
Polyethylene is a flexible and closed cell material used for thermal and acoustic insulation of heating, hot water, cold water pipes and internal waste water pipes in domestic and commercial buildings. It is effective at reducing energy losses and CO2-emissions. PEF insulation also protects pipework from aggressive building materials and can help to reduce the risk of condensation forming on cold water pipes.
