Product Announcement from Polyguard Products, Inc.

Alumaguard for Cold Temperature Asphalt Installs-Image

Alumaguard® All-Weather weather-proofing cladding from Polyguard Products is the only flexible insulation cladding available in the market which combines the self-healing characteristics of rubberized asphalt with the ease of application and cold weather performance of acrylic adhesive-based products.

· Proven: Uses the same outer layer and rubberized asphalt compound as the original Alumaguard membrane which has been used successfully in the market for 12 years as a lower cost alternative to standard metal and mastic/fab applications.

· True Zero Perm Performance

· Self-Healing: rubberized bituminous membrane seals small cuts and punctures; aluminum is UV stable.

· Acrylic adhesive allows installation down to 10ºF.

· No pinning or activator required

· Excellent emissivity

· Can be used year round

· Mold and mildew resistant

Alumaguard All-Weather is a composite membrane consisting of a multi-ply embossed UV-resistant aluminum foil/polymer laminate to which is applied a layer of rubberized asphalt specially formulated for use on insulated duct and piping applications. A metalized polyester film coated with a high quality low temperature acrylic adhesive is then applied to the rubberized asphalt. A heavy duty release liner gives Alumaguard All-Weather its peel and stick functionality.

Alumaguard® All-Weather is designed to be used outdoors to weather-proof exterior insulated ductwork, piping or other insulated tanks, vessels and equipment. Alumaguard All-Weather resists moisture, air and vapor intrusion.
