The new sizes answer the demand for larger tubes eliminating the need to piece sheet or roll material around large 8” and 10” piping. Mechanical insulation contractors will save time with easier-to-install tubes which curve naturally to fit snugly over large pipes and glue together faster than flat insulation. Added savings will come from reducing the scrap material that comes from cutting sheets down to size for large pipes.

The new AP Armaflex sizes include:
•8” ID x 1” Wall
•8” ID x 1.5” Wall
•8” ID x 2” Wall
•10” ID x 1” Wall
•10” ID x 1.5” Wall
•10” ID x 2” Wall

Like all AP Armaflex products, the closed cell structure means that it will not wick moisture and needs no additional water vapor retarder. The flexible, but durable, fiber-free foam resists punctures and won’t crack or flake over time. When installed and maintained properly, AP Armaflex insulation should last the life of the mechanical system.

AP Armaflex Large ID Tubes:
•Save time with naturally curved, easy-to-install tubes
•Reduce scrap and waste from cutting flat sheets
•Easy-to-glue parallel edges
•25/50 rated, all sizes and thicknesses
•Condensation control reduces CUI

As the inventors of Armaflex elastomeric foam technology in 1954, Armacell continues the tradition of practical innovation today.
