Aluminum Jacketing products are used intensively in mechanical insulation pipe, rectangular duct and tank coverings as protective membrane for the insulation against weather, corrosion and mechanical abuse.
Aluminum Jacketing is manufactured using Alloy that comply to ASTM B209, Alloy 3003, 3005, 3105 Or 5005, Temper H14.
The Jacketing can be fixed with different thicknesses (0.5mm — 1.2mm).
Stucco Embossed Finish
This is another popular finish used for Aluminum Jacketing.
The Stucco like surface texture hides small scratches and imperfections, caused by physical damage during or afrer installation.
This finish also reduces reflectivity while still looking very professional. The use of Stucco Embossed Finish provides a small increase to the rigidity and strength of the Aluminum Jacketing.
Smooth (Plain Mill) Finish
The Plain Finish is very popular for the many end-users who prefer the clean look of this finish.
This finish sheds rain water the best. This smooth surface readily shows damage such as from hail or any physical abuse. It also shows the dust/dirt more than the other finishes due to its smoothness.
The Plain Finish is highly reflective of sunlight specially when located near roadways; some end-users see this reflection as a possible safety hazard.
Polykraft Moisture Barrier
Polykraft consists of one layer of one mil polyethylene film with a protective layer of 40# virgin kraft paper.
The moisture barrier is factory applied by attaching the jacketing by continuous lamination to the full width of the metal. The moisture barrier is used to prevent moisture and corrosives in the insulation from coming into direct contact with the metal jacketing surface and causing galvanic or chemical corrosion.
