The thermal and acoustical insulation properties of ARPRO make it perfect for the Heating, Ventilation, Air-Conditioning and Refrigeration (HVAC-R) industry. The design flexibility of ARPRO enables key system components such as pumps, boilers, valves, heat-exchangers and control mechanisms to be universally housed in ARPRO to improve their insulation.
ARPRO enables sophisticated three dimensional shapes, living hinges, inserts and cable channels. Housings in ARPRO allow for easy maintenance due to easy assembly and an organised structure.
ARPRO allows integration of fixation items and reduces the numbers of rivets, screws, clips and similar items which will be replaced with snap fits. This drastically reduces assembly costs and makes the different components easier to install and easier to maintain or repair when in use.
The thermal insulating benefits of ARPRO mean that there are a growing number of applications in the Heating, Ventilation, Air-Conditioning and Refrigeration (HVAC-R) industry.
Thermal insulation in combination with propertiessuch as lightweight, structural strength, energy absorption, acoustic insulation and design flexibility ensure broad suitability. Key system components such as pumps, boilers, valves, heat-exchangers, motors and control mechanisms are universally housed in ARPRO to improve heat insulation.

ARPRO Porous is a unique, closed cell material that features air pockets, or voids, within the hollow cylinder-shaped particle structure; these enhance acoustic performance.
The macroscopic tortuosity of ARPRO Porous absorbs incident sound waves resulting in an acoustic attenuation up to 3dBA vs. ARPRO Black for the main ARPRO Porous applications (tool boxes and seating).
ARPRO Porous is used in domestic and industrial HVAC-R component casings specifically to reduce pump, valve and control mechanism noise.
The aesthetics of ARPRO are incredibly versatile, with options ranging from colours, surface textures, and fabric coverings.
Tool surface treatment and finishing techniques make it possible to generate a wide variety of patterns in various sizes and depths. The excellent post expansion ability of ARPRO enables superb quality surfaces that can be used in visible aesthetic applications.
In addition, snap fit, tight tolerances enabling precision parts, living hinges and the ability for complex shapes make ARPRO a unique material.
