Fiberglass Pipe Insulation
Brand : Owens Corning / Johns Manville
- Unit Of Measure:
- Per 3ft Section
Fiberglass Pipe Insulation covering is intended as a thermal insulation for both hot and cold service piping from -20°F to 1000°F. The pipe insulation is molded from heavy density resin bonded glass fibers that come in 3 foot long hinged sections. The fiberglass is wrapped with white All-Service Jacketing with a self-sealing lap (ASJ/SSL) for a quick and secure installation. Each 3 foot section of commercial pipe insulation comes with a butt-strip tape (matching the white ASJ jacketing) that is used to connect two sections of pipe insulation together.
Typical Uses Include:
- Domestic Hot & Cold Water Pipes
- Hot Water Heating Pipes
- High Temperature Pipes
- Dual Temperature Pipes
- Steam Pipes (Low to High Pressure)
- Condensate Lines
- Refrigerated / Chilled Liquid Pipes
Choosing The Correct Size: There are two sizes you need to choose when ordering, the "Pipe Size" and the "Insulation Thickness". The insulation thickness is the wall thickness of the fiberglass which varies from 1/2" up to 3" thick. For help selecting a fiberglass pipe insulation thickness see our Fiberglass Thickness Guide To determine which Pipe Size to order please see the link below (Note: Pipe Size is NOT the same as the pipe diameter):
To install pipe covering, simply open the hinged part of the commercial pipe insulation and place the opening over the pipe. The fiberglass piping insulation will self-close around the pipe. Once the fiberglass is fitted snug around the pipe, peel the release paper from the self-sealing lap and press the ASJ/SSL jacket closed from the middle towards the edges of the pipe insulation. Make sure to rub the jacket closed to ensure a secure seal. Seal two sections together with a piece of butt strip tape making sure to rub the tape to create a secure seal. Additional ASJ MAX Tape is recommended for large projects and projects that require multiple cuts of the insulation. Use of PVC Fitting Covers for elbows, tees, unions and other pipe fittings should be installed after installing fiberglass pipe insulation.

White ASJ Jacketing: A large majority of common size pipe insulation we ship is the new ASJ Max / HP ULTRA pipe insulation while some larger sizes and (3 x 1/2, 3-1/8 x 1/2, 4 x 1/2, and 4-1/8 x 1/2) will be Johns Manville Micro-Loc HP. The new ASJ Max / HP ULTRA jacketing has a poly top-coat over the ASJ paper which makes it easier to wipe clean and slightly water resistant (cannot be left exposed outdoors).
NOTE: Each unit is 3 linear feet of pipe covering. For example, if you need 9 linear feet, you only need to order 3 units.

Removed the old asbestos insulation years ago and finally got around to putting on new insulation. This was high quality stuff, easy to install, with plenty of tape to seal the joints. Very happy customer.
Pipe insulation for a forced hot water pipe in a garage. Very easy to install and delivered in mint condition with the right measurements. Diameter sizing can be slightly larger than specified on a few of them, but great quality overall.
Great product, great fit, great quality.
I ordered 200.00+ in pipe insulation, received a delivery date of 12-1 no show, then 12-2, no show, then 12-3 yep no show. The tracking on buy insulation keeps showing out for delivery as does the FedEx link they have, but when I checked with FedEx directly they say they havent received it and they have no date when it will arrive. So my conclusion is that Buy Insulation has been flat out lying to me. If they dont contact me and tell me the truth I will be canceling my order.
*Al, our online tracking links pull information from the FedEx site. Unfortunately delivery times are out of our hands however I have emailed you about the information we received from FedEx on this delivery. ~ BIP
Easy to install and does the job well. Great product and great service
I used several length of this insulation over 6 inch diameter heating/cooling ducts on the ceiling of an un-insulated tuck-under garage. I covered them with a PVC wrap and used 90 degree and 45 degree PVC covers for the bends in the system. I used PVC tape to secure the joints. This has greatly reduced the heat loss from the ducts. This has made the rooms served by the ducts much more comfortable. The installation looks quite neat and should stay clean. The insulation is designed for 6 inch inside diameter (schedule 40) steel pipe so the I.D. of the insulation is about 6.6 inches. This leaves about a 0.3 inch gap around the 6 inch O.D. duct tubing. This was not a serious problem.
Better quality and price than bigger box stores
A+A+A+A+ Company Great customer service
The 3 ft fiberglass pipe insulation pieces are a phenomenal product. I used them to insulate all the steam pipes for my radiators during a remodel. Just make sure of how much clearance you have around the pipes so you can determine the best thickness for your application. The chart made available on the website is a huge help. The precut pieces of ASJ tape included (for the seams) was highly appreciated. Buy with confidence.
This company and the product I purchased was great. They were very accommodating with exchanges and delivered the product fast. I would consider buying again. Thanks
