Insulation jacketing consists of an outer covering that is wrapped around tubing or pipe insulation to protect the insulation from moisture, wear and mechanical damage. The jacket also serves to provide support for the insulation and establish the system emissivity and appearance. Insulation jacketing plays an important role in the efficiency of the insulation.
The type of jacketing used depends on the mechanical, chemical, thermal, and moisture conditions of the installation as well as cost and aesthetics requirements.
