Product Announcement from Merryweather Foam, Inc.
PIPE INSULATION-Do you have an insulation need? Merryweather Foam offers flexible, polyolefin, thermal insulation. It is used to retard heat gain and prevent condensation or frost formation on cold water plumbing, chilled water and air-conditioning lines. Pipe insulation also retards heat loss on heat water plumbing.
General Information Flexible, closed cell polyolefin insulation for piping systems. Superior 'R' value and water vapor transmission. No residual chlorine from foaming agent eliminates insulation as source of harmful corrosive constituents. New zero ozone depletion manufacturing process.
Pipe Insulation: Superior pressure sensitive adhesive seam closure system
Installation over a wide temperature range
Greater joint strength at all operating temperatures
Up to 50% reduction in installation costs over conventional commercial pipe insulation products
