PIPE INSULATION WRAP

Interior & Exterior Pipe Insulation Wrap

In cold climates, we winterize our homes but one thing that is often neglected is water pipes that are exposed to the cold. It is very important to winterize your plumbing to ensure your assets are protected. As such, pipe insulation wrap is a must.  With a relatively small investment in reliable pipe insulation wrap from a pipe insulation manufacturer such as Insulapack, you may be proactively saving yourself a considerable expenditure. A pipe burst in an unheated area such as a garage, crawlspace, attic or the exterior of a building can cost a lot of money to repair. Those costs could skyrocket if there is collateral water damage to other assets or other peoples’ property.

Insulapack provides high quality interior & exterior pipe insulation wrap in Canada and the USA.

It’s common knowledge that when water freezes it expands. If that water is inside a pipe, the pressure from the expanding ice inside could expand the pipe to the point where it splits open. Insulapack’s pipe insulation wraps keeps the heat from escaping, which prevents the water in the pipe from freezing!

Insulapack™ bubble insulation is a multi-layered, laminated plastic cellular material containing insulating, inert, argon gas filled bubbles complete with a metalized reflective outer layer that provides a very high thermal resistance (R-value) to insulate walls, ceilings, mechanical ductwork, and piping. The outer metallic foil layer of Insulapack™ ensures that the product will not provide radiant heat transfer, and its plastic cellular construction makes the product impervious to humidity.

The insulating argon gas within the green-colored plastic cells is inert, non-reactive, and not flammable. The multi-laminated plastic cells will not leak and the material has been aged tested to perform effectively for a minimum of 50 years. This material ensures extremely low water vapor permeance acting as a vapor barrier and will not corrode. It resists mold and will not provide a nesting environment for animals and insects.

Tested and meets 25/50 ULC – Formaldehyde free • Extremely lightweight – Does not adsorb/absorb moisture – UL & ULC Certified

Frequently Asked Questions

Pipe insulation is highly effective in controlling the temperature of piping systems, both in a residential and commercial applications. It helps to maintain the temperature of piping systems through a range of conditions, from extreme cold or heat to normal temperatures. Its thermal resistance properties ensure that it can keep a steady temperature, even in extreme weather conditions.

In order to prevent your pipes from freezing, you need to use exterior pipe insulation wrap. Exterior pipe insulation is designed to be used on pipes that are exposed to the elements and can help protect against cold temperatures and other external forces. Exterior pipe insulation wrap should cover all of the pipe, including any access points or valves.

Most pipe manufacturers recommend a temperature of around 38 degrees Fahrenheit before pipes start to freeze. Pipe insulation can help extend the life of your pipes and keep them from freezing during cold weather. Professional pipe insulation manufacturers can provide you with the best protection from freezing temperatures and help ensure that your pipes stay in perfect condition.

Pipe insulation can provide a variety of benefits for both commercial and residential buildings.

  • Pipe insulation wrap is an effective way to reduce energy costs.
  • It improves the performance of pipes and protects against freezing or other weather-related issues.
  • Pipe insulation reduces the amount of heat that escapes through piping walls in winter by creating a thermal barrier between the inside and outside temperatures.

Yes, outside pipes should be insulated. Pipe insulation wrap can help to optimize the heating and cooling efficiency of any home, commercial building, industrial plant, or agricultural facility by reducing heat loss and controlling condensation. Pipe insulation wrap helps reduce energy costs, protect against freezing temperatures and improve hot water delivery times.
