WHAT ARE THE BENEFITS OF THE NEW ASJ+ JACKETING AVAILABLE
ON EARTHWOOL ECOSE PIPE INSULATION?


BENEFITS OF ASJ+ JACKETING:

• Professional finished appearance — dimple and wrinkle resistant.

• Cleanable with a wet cloth and soapy water.

• Moisture resistant to intermittent, short duration liquid water exposure, such as precipitation during construction phase.

• ASJ+ has substantially less degradation and discoloration when exposed to UV.

• ASJ+ meets ASTM C1136 Type I, II, III, IV, and meets VIII based on the 85% better puncture resistance of ASJ+.

• Excellent SSL adhesion.

Knauf Insulation Earthwool 1000° Pipe Insulation is a molded, heavy-density, one-piece insulation made from inorganic glass fibers bonded with ECOSE Technology. It is produced in 3' lengths with or without a factory-applied jacket.  ASJ+ is the newest generation all-service jacket composed of aluminum foil, reinforced with a glass scrim bonded to a kraft paper interleaving with an outer film layer leaving no paper exposed.  A matching ASJ+ butt strip is furnished in the carton for each section.  The jacket is white, and the longitudinal lap of the jacket has a self-sealing adhesive.

EARTHWOOL

Earthwool is the new benchmark that stands apart for its genuine sustainability, unsurpassed performance and consistently high product quality.

ECOSE Technology

ECOSE Technology is a revolutionary binder based on rapidly renewable bio-based materials rather than non-renewable petroleum-based chemicals such as phenol, formaldehyde or acrylics.  ECOSE Technology reduces Knauf Insulation’s binder embodied energy and contains no phenol, formaldehyde, acrylics or artificial colors.

Application

Earthwool 1000° Pipe Insulation is used to insulate iron and copper piping in industrial applications and in commercial and institutional buildings. Earthwool 1000° Pipe Insulation is suitable for hot, cold, concealed and exposed piping systems operating at temperatures from 0°F-1000°F (-18°C to 538°C).  Additional weather protection is needed outdoors.
