Aluminum and Stainless Steel

Aluminum & stainless steel jacketing, banding, & fittings are designed to provide protection to thermal insulation used primarily in refineries, power plants, chemical facilities, and paper mills. Metal jacketing, typically made of aluminum or stainless steel, provides weather and damage protection, aesthetics, and fire protection, where applicable. The key benefit of metal jacketing is the prevention of corrosion under insulation (CUI). It is for this reason that stainless steel and aluminum, anti-corrosive metals, are used. Aluminum & stainless steel banding, also called strapping, is used to secure metal jacketing in place. Aluminum strapping is manufactured to conform to ASTM B-209 designation, while stainless steel strapping may be made from Type 304 stainless steel. Aluminum & stainless steel fittings are designed to fit over insulated pipe fittings to protect from weather and physical damage.
