Polyisobutylene Cladding Contractors

Polyisobutylene (PIB) cladding serves as the ideal weatherproof cladding, providing a resilient protective layer to exposed external pipes and ductwork. Its effectiveness lies in its ability to shield against not only UV rays but also the detrimental effects of moisture damage and various other outdoor weather conditions, improving the lifespan of your systems.

PIB cladding is used in many industrial applications and is particularly popular in sectors like chemicals and oil. This is because of its remarkable resistance to environmental stresses and its ease of use. For example, the chemical industry benefits from PIB’s ability to resist corrosion caused by chemical spills, while the oil sector benefits from its capability to withstand extreme weather.

Polyisobutylene Cladding - Key Benefits



Ozone and UV resistant

PIB cladding has a few benefits, a major one being its ability to avoid degradation caused by the absorption of UV rays (sun damage). Polyisobutylene is ozone and UV-resistant, providing great protection even when factoring in changing climate conditions and the potential for extreme weather conditions.


Chemical resistant

Another advantage of polyisobutylene is that the material is highly resistant to several chemicals and strong acids. Overall, PIB cladding is extremely hardy and will alleviate your worries about exposure to strong chemicals and acids.


PIB cladding is waterproof

A significant benefit of polyisobutylene is that it’s completely waterproof, making it perfect for external duct cladding or external pipe cladding. Furthermore, polyisobutylene retains its amazing properties even over a wide temperature range (-30°C to 100°C). This goes a long way in explaining its impressive use in oil refineries, chemical plants and power stations.

PIB Cladding for Pipes & Ductwork

Insulating your exterior pipes and ducts is always a good idea, but this won’t protect them from UV radiation, abrupt fluctuations in temperature, or unpredictable weather. This is when PIB cladding enters the picture.

Polyisobutylene serves as the perfect material for your external pipe & ductwork cladding. It is produced from high molecular weight polyisobutylene, modified to achieve a strong protective coating. For example, PIB cladding will not harden, nor will it crack or peel, and it is ozone and UV-resistant. Not only this but once installed, PIB insulation cladding doesn’t age or deteriorate over time, making it a worthy investment for the future.

PIB pipe insulation coverings offer versatility, catering to both smaller pipe systems and major installations for external duct & pipe cladding, adapting to your specific requirements. Installing PIB cladding is a worthwhile investment and won’t require constant maintenance after installation. However, it is recommended to have periodic inspections when used on large ductwork applications. As a leading commercial & industrial cladding contractor, you can rely on us to correctly install your PIB cladding.
