Pipe insulation requires a protective layer to prevent contamination that would otherwise destroy the integrity of the insulation. The methodology of protecting insulation has changed over the years, and PVC (Polyvinyl chloride) has become an industry standard and preferred product used by insulation contractors world-wide.
At GLT Products we provide a variety of pipe insulation solutions. Any insulation material has to be covered with some form of metal or PVC jacketing. Whether the insulation is indoor or outdoor, it cannot be left exposed to moisture, weather, or UV rays. Luckily, we offer an expansive line of stainless steel and aluminum metal jacketing and banding for use in any commercial and industrial insulation applications.
PVC fitting covers and jacketing are innovative materials that have found a home in piping applications for the industrial insulation industry. PVC stands for Polyvinyl Chloride and is a widely used plastic that is vital to our everyday lives.
Moisture control is something that every plant and facility struggles with, especially ones with pipes and ducts carrying fluids at below-ambient temperatures. When it comes to condensation and mechanical systems, there are three issues to be aware of.
