Owens Corning Insulating Systems LLC announced plans to produce high-quality, Fiberglas Pipe Insulation with ASJ custom-fit for Aquatherm pipe as part of an exclusive agreement with Aquatherm North America. The introduction of these new fiberglass pipe insulation solutions will enable insulators and mechanical engineers to confidently and easily work with the Aquatherm metric-sized polypropylene-random (PP-R) piping systems.
The new AQ Fiberglas Pipe Insulation leverages Owens Corning’s existing distribution channels and introduced more than nine sizes and 22 SKUs (covering pipe up to 4 inches—125 millimeter—in diameter) to the marketplace in January 2015. This product line delivers a custom-fit solution that matches the outer dimensions of the German-manufactured, metric-sized piping systems.
“Owens Corning identified an opportunity to deliver a custom fiberglass insulation solution for Aquatherm North America that directly benefits customers and addresses a marketplace need,” says Alex Legall, vice president of sales for Engineered Insulation Systems. “Through this new agreement between Owens Corning and Aquatherm, the introduction of the metric-sized Fiberglas Pipe Insulation eliminates sizing challenges related to metric conversions and enables an efficient, high-performance solution.”
