PVC 90° Degree Elbow Cover
Brand : Proto / JM
- Unit Of Measure:
- Each (with Fiberglass Insert)
PVC 90° Degree Steam Pipe Insulation Elbow Covers are used to insulate 90° degree pipe elbow fittings. Each PVC pipe cover comes with a sized fiberglass insert which is made from die-cut fiberglass blanket. The fiberglass insert is wrapped around the elbow ensuring that all of the pipe is covered by insulation. The PVC Pipe Elbow Cover is a pre-molded plastic one-piece cover that fits around both ends of the fiberglass pipe insulation and overlaps on the inside seam. The inside seam of the steam pipe insulation elbow can be closed one of three ways:
1.) Use serrated stainless steel King Tacks which are pressed through the overlapping pieces of the elbow cover and will hold them securely. (Steam, Hot Water, etc)
2.) Use PVC Vinyl Z-Tape to seal the elbow cover to the fiberglass pipe insulation. (Cold Water, Chilled Liquid, etc)
3.) Use Proto One PVC Adhesive to glue the seams of the PVC pipe cover. (Exterior Piping, USDA, Washdown Area, etc)
*Tacks, Vinyl Tape, and Adhesive are sold separately.
*PVC 90° Elbow Covers are available in 13 high gloss colors!

HOW TO INSTALL PVC FITTING COVERS
Great, easy way to insulate elbows. One thing to keep in mind, if you have hard to reach areas or elbows are in a tight corner/area, then it may be difficult to get the tape around the cover and you would be better off using the taps. I opted for the tape and had a hard time in some tight spaces, wish I had opted for the taps instead. In the end was able to get it sealed and looks great though.
The PVC 90 degree elbow cover makes during them so simple with how the insulation is formed for you that comes with this kit and how the cover fits so neatly over the elbow. Makes the job look so nice and the ease of finishing them tough spots lots easier
WORKS GOOD, BUT YOU NEED THE ONE INCH INSULATION TO WORK ON A THREE INCH PIPE
Easy installation with additional fiberglass batting. Very satisfied with product. Would recommend to others
putting these sizes together like elbows NEEDS about 5 arms/hands - all elbows should snap together
*T~ Some of the larger fitting covers (you ordered #17) are shipped unflipped from the manufacturers to protect them during shipping. These fittings will resemble what we call a Captain Crunch Hat or a knee cap. These can be easily flipped:
Good quality, good price, quick delivery
Thes covers reall provide a very professional finish to insulating pipes. I used them with the fiberglass pipe insulation to insulate a home steam system. The web site makes choosing the right product very easy. Very happy with the end result.
We’re easy to install, fit perfectly and looked great with the pipe insulation I purchased.
Headline says it all. Make sure you order the tacks for an easy install.
I have never insulated pipe before and I had no trouble getting these to fit and look professional. I would recommend watching the installation videos if you have never done this before as they do have some good tips that will help you get things to fit tight.
There is something very satisfying about getting these fittings to go on as tight and cleanly as they do. They are easy to cut and modify if you have close fittings that impede with the cover.
I got a 5 inch and a 6 inch. The 5 inch one was inside out - hard to explain. The inside corner of the elbow, where the seam is: those edges were curved the wrong way. Really hard to install. The 6 inch one was perfectly fine, great product. I got these instead of the Victaulic ones because they were cheaper and I thought they looked nicer. These + Victaulic coupling covers are a pretty good set. Have to notch them where the coupling bolts are, however.
*Jeremy, sorry to hear one of the PVC covers were unflipped. Anyone reading this, we do have a video that shows how to curl the fitting back if they uncurled. ~BIP
