VaporWick® Pipe Insulation

Return to Previous >>

Help eliminate moisture caused by pipe condensation and keep costs down by insulating building and industrial facility piping systems with VaporWick® Pipe Insulation. VaporWick® Pipe Insulation’s specially designed wicking material helps keep insulation dry by using a material that absorbs condensed water from the pipe’s surface and wicks it to the outside. It maintains the temperature in pipes and keeps condensation off in below-ambient temperatures and dual temperature installations. The low thermal conductivity of VaporWick® Pipe Insulation means excellent thermal value, and at the same time, lowers operating costs at a favourable installed cost-performance ratio. VaporWick® Pipe Insulation prevents dripping and preserves infrastructure, allowing the insulation to perform effectively over the life of the project. VaporWick® Pipe Insulation is easy to install with the self-sealing lap seal. Positive closure is fast, neat, and foolproof. There is no need for staples or mastic, and VaporWick® Pipe Insulation adheres as easily to wet working pipes as new ones.
