MAXFLEX TAPE is made from EPDM insulating foam sheet and specially coated with selected acrylic pressure sensitive adhesive to ensure good tacking strength and long service life. It is closed cell, light weight, having stable and low thermal conductivity value which serves the insulating purpose in retarding heat loss, heat gain and condensation protection. MAXFLEX TAPE is made from the same elastomeric material as MAXFLEX. It is ideal for ease and quick installation. Just simply wrap onto the hot or cold pipes, or pipe fittings. The tape will adhere firmly to all metals without delamination problem.
