Owens Corning® ASJ Max FIBERGLAS™ Pipe Insulation product benefits
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
