Top 5 Insulating Tools For Industrial and Commercial Insulation:
Dexter Russell 1376HB Ham Boning Knife: Ask any mechanical insulator and the most commonly used tool is their knife. A popular choice is the Dexter 1376HB which is a 6" long straight blade which is flexible for carving and digging out fiberglass insulation. The rigid version Dexter 1376 is a close 2nd favorite.
TIK-C585 Pipe Caliper: A must have tool for every pipe related tradesman, a pipe caliper helps insulators quickly and efficiently identify pipe sizes (both copper and iron) when placing their pipe insulation orders.
Carborundum Sharpening Stone: Keeping that Dexter Russell knife sharp is a must and the best tool for doing the job is the 14" long Carborundum Sharpening Stone. This sharpener will be in every insulator's bag.
Rubber/PVC Glue Guns and Brush Tips: There is nothing worse than having to apply rubber glue or PVC Permaweld with a standard brush. Using either the red plastic or black metal adhesive guns allow even application of the adhesive to the surface and keeps the adhesive from drying out early. Add the black gun tip brush as an insulator's must have.
