Owens Corning® ASJ Max FIBERGLAS™ Pipe Insulation product benefits include:
- ASJ Max Poly-Encapsulated Paper Jacket: ASJ Max FIBERGLAS™ Pipe Insulation now has a poly-encapsulated paper jacket that is smooth, durable, cleanable, wrinkle-resistant, resists water staining and yellowing, and doesn’t support mold or mildew growth. When exposed to short-term precipitation during construction, the ASJ Max jacket will shed water to help prevent damage. The ASJ Max jacket is designed to have a compatible finish with standard ASJ, making it easy to achieve a neat, professional appearance on every job.
- Advanced SSL® Max Closure System: The new ASJ Max jacket features a customized SSL® Max closure system with advanced adhesives designed to work specifically with the new ASJ Max jacket to provide a tight, reliable seal without glue or staples. Pressure-sensitive butt strips complete the closure system to provide effective long-term vapor sealing of the butt joints. The combination of ASJ Max with SSL® Max closure system delivers a strong bond, easy installation and excellent long-term durability that stays tightly sealed in both extreme hot and cold conditions. This innovative closure system will also be available on our Vaporwick® Pipe Insulation product for below-ambient temperature pipes.
- Impressive Temperature Range: The ASJ Max offers an impressive temperature range and has been rated for operating at temperatures from 0°F (-18°C) up to 1,000°F (538°C) to deliver a solution to meet the needs of a broader range of applications, with proper heat-up schedule.
Owens Corning® ASJ Max FIBERGLAS™ Pipe Insulation is also available in select metric sizes for use with Aquatherm® pipe systems.
