Nitron Industries, LLC is proud to offer NitroLite, a unique foam material designed primarily for thermal insulation.  NitroLite is available in black, white and a wide variety of colors.  Unique surfaces are available upon special request.  NitroLite offers superior insulating ability and cost-effectiveness over standard neoprene and other types of insulating, closed-cell, foams. NitroLiteis inherently hypoallergenic, antibacterial, and antifungal. It is also UV, and ozone resistant. The material is self extinguishing when exposed to flame .

NitroLite insulation is available in tubing for pipes and in sheet form.  Self-adhesive foam tapes are also available.  The extruded flexible tubing is specially designed to fit the standard diameters of steel and copper piping.  Sheets are available in standard precut sizes or rolls. Also available in aluminized laminate in sheets and rolls, used in automotive, RV, boat, acoustic, firewall applications as well as many other uses.....  Our 1/8 inch material is used as a sub-flooring under hardwood floors, as an acoustic insulator as well as a water barrier and floor padding.

In addition to wide usage for thermal insulation, the inherent characteristics and physical properties of
NitroLite make it a highly advantageous product in a wide variety of industries.  Currently NitroLite is being used for sports equipment as handles, supports, back rests and shock absorbent padding: foamed pipes for ornaments and toys; special industrial-foamed pipes for ornaments and greenhouse insulation and aquaculture applications.

**STC is a composite construction score that includes many variables including; construction materials, wall thickness, types of carpeting, type of roof, etc. Specific acoustic properties and installation are available upon request.

Due to differences in the surface area to volume, heat flow is not simply a matter of measuring the R-value of flat surface material, but rather radial heat flow associated with cylindrical shapes.  This is based on the fact that the inner radius surface area is considerably smaller than the outer radius surface area and most to calculated using a different formula (available upon request) that yields an R-value on a square foot basis.  The values represented here are a conservative estimate of R-values typically seen for
NitroLite pipe insulation.
