T-FIT®, a Zotefoams plc business, will be showcasing the exceptional performance benefits from the pharmaceutical cleanroom piping insulation of choice, T-FIT Clean, at this year’s International Pharmaceutical Expo (INTERPHEX) in New York, USA. 

T-FIT is a unique, modular technical pipework insulation system purposely designed for highly controlled production environments. Visitors to booth 3822 will have the opportunity to discover the impressive properties of T-FIT Clean, widely acknowledged as the leading pipework insulation system for pharmaceutical cleanrooms worldwide.

Manufactured from Zotefoams’ ground-breaking ZOTEK® F42HTLS fine, closed cell PVDF foam via Zotefoams’ unique three-stage process, T-FIT Clean offers unrivalled in-use performance benefits and is the only foam insulation product that meets or exceeds all relevant global standards for cleanroom insulation, including FM4910 Cleanroom Materials Protocol and ASTM G21-96 and G21-15 Standard Practice for Determining Resistance of Synthetic Polymeric Materials to Fungi. It is also fully compliant with cGMP.

Originally developed to meet rigorous aviation industry standards, ZOTEK F42HTLS is easy to clean and immune to most chemicals. It has a wide operating temperature range, excellent flammability credentials and is inherently pure and non-toxic. Its closed cell structure eliminates particles and it is easily vacuum- or thermoformed into complex shapes, enabling the development of clamshell elbows, tees and runs for all standard pipework. Quick to install and with a long, maintenance-free service life once in place, T-FIT Clean offers low Total Cost of Ownership (TCO). 

As the pharmaceutical sector continues to grow globally, T-FIT recognises innovation and product development is vital in supporting the industry achieve even higher levels of product quality as it offers a growing range of technical insulation with unique manufacturing benefits. 

T-FIT’s range also includes T-FIT Hygiene, developed specifically for aseptic areas, and T-FIT Process, manufactured from nylon for more demanding high temperature process areas. 

Zotefoams Group CEO, David Stirling, says, “We’ve experienced significant increase in demand for T-FIT globally, so we see INTERPHEX as the ideal platform to restate the benefits of T-FIT’s leading product T-FIT Clean, while providing choice and flexibility. As demand continues to grow our capacity investments worldwide will enhance our supply, sales and service capabilities to ensure that T-FIT continues to be the technical insulation of choice.”
