"was after something to insulate heating pipes under floor boards - installer had put them soon close to the boards that traditional foam lengths wouldn't fit... found this on the Screwfix site - cracking product and does the job nicely :) - the only negative point i can think of is that it's a tad awkward passing the role around the pipe whilst trying to wrap it tightly - easily overcome by cutting strips off though..."
"Bought this to insulate the pipes in my airing cupboard, as some are very close to the wall and foam would not fit. Easy to use, just cut to a managable length and wrap round the pipe, then fix with tape. Think it said it is equivelent to 30mm foam insulation. Not sure about that as pipes still feel hot to touch. If doing again, I would probably use this only for hard to reach pipes and use foam for others. Overall easy to use but time consuming."
"Used this for added protection of joints in the loft, where despite mitring, foam insulation would not fit tightly. This was a good choice to go around those joints, wrapping tightly together to seal the joint in (with some gaffs tape!)
I would think a single layer of this stuff would do very much at all - so those who think it'll provide significant insulation in a single layer be wary.... However it'd be fine once you'd wrapped it round a few times."
"Easy to install, but more importantly reduced the level of heat escape from 25mm hot water pipes that run up the wall next to the fridge freezer. Can already detect that the fridge is running more efficiently."
"I used this to wrap a blown warm air pipe under the floor of a caravan. Tight space but made easy by ability to pull through the floor/pipe gap. Secured it with waterproof tape (60514) then tie wraps. Used whole roll, job took 30 mins. Outlet much warmer, has survived exposure to road/weather for over a month."
"Was recommended this product to insulate the heating pipes under our caravan floor - works well and not too difficult to fit with the help of a good adhesive tape Used it on house pipes also and as it is easy to fit around corners it should be a good choice for difficult areas ."
"Bought this to replace some old hessian type lagging around my 8mm microbore heating pipes (couldn't get the usual foam stuff for 8mm pipes). It went on ok but when I tested the CH system all the foil got hot so it acted rather like a radiator which in my mind could be counter productive. As a precaution I resurrected the hessian lagging and wrapped everything with that."
