5 ASJ Max and No Wrap FIBERGLAS Pipe Insulation ASJ Max installation instructions 1. Ambient application temperatures are from 25F (-4C) to 110F (43C). 2. Open the hinged sections and place the insulation over the pipe, taking care not to get dirt, dust or moisture on the overlap area. 3. Pull the release strip from the lap. While preparing to close the insulation, do not to allow the adhesive to contact anything until the insulation is properly lined up and closed over the pipe. 4. Seal the insulation. Start by pulling the lap down at the middle until the adhesive touches the facing. Press together. Rub firmly with nylon sealing tool or squeegee from the middle of the section toward the end until the lap is securely adhered to the jacket. 5. Apply the matching butt strip centered over the adjoining pipe sections and rub with firm pressure to complete the positive closure. Note: After initial SSL Max adhesive tack, and when the butt strip is applied, it is critical that the closures not be reopened or repositioned on the facing. Doing so will delaminate the jacket and adhesive, diminishing the bond strength. 6. If the operating temperature of the system is above 100F (37C) and the pipe insulation terminates with an exposed end, applying mastic over the exposed end, per the mastic manufacturer's instructions, is recommended.

A Minimum Burst Strength 100 psi ASTM D774/D774M Fungi Resistance Meets requirements ASTM C1338 Composite Surface Burning Characteristics 4 Flame Spread: 25 Smoke Developed: 50 UL 723, ASTM E84 or CAN/ULC-S102 2. Limited to single-layer applications above 650F (343C), but not greater than 6" (152mm) thickness. 3. With heat-up schedule. 4. The standards used to determine surface burning characteristics 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 these tests may be used as elements of a fire risk assessment, which takes into account all of the factors that are pertinent to an assessment of the fire hazard of a particular end use. Values are reported to the nearest 5 rating. Prepared per ASTM E2231, Standard Practice for Specimen Preparation and Mounting of Pipe and Duct Materials to Assess Surface Burning Characteristics. 7. If the operating temperature of the system is below 100F (37C), the pipe insulation exposed end termination should be sealed with a vapor barrier mastic applied over the exposed end per the mastic manufacturer's instructions. 8. Apply systems identification labels using either pressure-sensitive labels or stencils and spray paint. 9. If painting is required, use only water-based latex paint. No Wrap installation Instructions 1. Open the hinged sections and place over pipe. 2. Carefully align and secure in place with wires or bands. 3. Jacket and vapor seal as required by the application. Additional installation instructions for both Outdoor applications must be protected from weather. Heat-up schedule Pipe insulation may be installed while the system is in operation at temperatures up to 1,000F (538C) at a maximum thickness of 6". For insulation thicknesses greater than 6" (152 mm), the temperature must be increased from 500F (260C) to maximum temperature at a rate not exceeding 100F (56C) per hour. SPECIFICATIONS
