Reflectix Pipe Wrap may be installed by spiralling or wrapping around water pipes. This product reduces condensation on cold pipes and heat loss on hot pipes. Two outer layers of aluminum foil reflect 97% of radiant heat. Each layer of foil is bonded to a tough layer of polyethylene for strength. Two inner layers of insulating bubbles resist conductive heat flow, while a center layer of polyethylene give Reflectix high reliability and strength. Environmentally safe, there is no need for protective garments or respirators when installing. Reflectix is not affected by moisture or humidity. There are no nesting characteristics for insects or rodents and the product resist growth of fungi, mould and mildew.
