PRODUCT DATA SHEET Fiberglas VaporWick Pipe Insulation Description Owens Corning VaporWick Pipe Insulation is an innovative insulation product designed specifically for below-ambient temperature applications in severe hot/humid operating environments. The heart of the system is a wick material that transports condensed water to the outside of the system for evaporation to the atmosphere. The wick keeps the fiberglass insulation dry, preventing dripping and allowing the insulation to perform effectively over the life of the project. VaporWick Pipe Insulation's one-piece, 36" (914mm) long molded sections come in standard sizes and are composed of heavy density fiberglass insulation with an organic binder. The synthetic wicking material is factory-installed on the inner surface of the assembly. The sections are opened, placed over the pipe, closed and secured with a pressure- sensitive adhesive closure. The insulation is factory-jacketed with a resilient, tough, soil-resistant polymer facing that matches standard PVC fitting covers. Auxiliary items include rolls of wick material for wrapping elbows and valves; VaporWick Pipe Insulation evaporation skirt (hula skirt) for verticals; and matching butt joint sealing tape for system closure. Features Keeps insulation dry by incorporating a specially designed wicking material that absorbs condensed water from the pipe surface and wicks it to the outside, keeping the insulation dry and minimizing any loss in insulating capability. This prevents dripping and the associated staining of ceiling tiles and damage to the building contents VaporWick Pipe Insulation is rated for operating temperatures which range from 32F to 220F, making it ideal for dual temperature installations UL Classified for Surface Burning Characteristics. Flame spread rating of 25 or less, and smoke development rating of 50 or less means that VaporWick Pipe Insulation will be granted immediate building code approval for use in air plenums and other critical locations Low thermal conductivity contributes to lower operating costs at a favorable installed cost/performance ratio Self-drying feature allows product to be installed on wet pipes. Systems do not need to be shut down during installation of the VaporWick System Positive closure is fast, neat, and foolproof. No need for staples or mastic VaporWick Pipe Insulation provides no sustenance for mold to propagate and meets the standard ASTM test for fungi resistance Physical Properties Property Test Method Value Operating Temperature Range 32F to 220F (0C to 104C) Jacket Permeance ASTM E96, Desicant method < 0.15 perm Jacket Temperature Limitation ASTM C1136 225F (107C) Burst Strength, min ASTM D774/ D774M 55 psi Corrosion Resistance ASTM C665 Meets requirements Fungi Resistance ASTM C1338 Meets requirements Composite Surface Burning Characteristics 1 Flame Spread Smoke Developed ASTM E84, UL 723, and CAN/ULC-S102 < 25 < 50 1. The surface burning characteristics of these products have been determined in accordance with ASTM E84, UL 723, and CAN/ULC-S102. These standards should be used to measure and describe the properties of materials, products, or assemblies in response to heat and flame under controlled laboratory conditions and should not be used to describe or appraise the fire hazard or fire risk of materials, products or assemblies under actual fire conditions. However, results of this test may be used as elements of a fire risk assessment, which takes into account all of the factors, which are pertinent to an assessment of the fire hazard of a particular end use. Values are reported to the nearest 5 rating. Availability VaporWick Pipe Insulations are available in thickness and for pipe sizes as follows.
