The claims for this product are completely false unless the pipe is lagged first. For basic protection to avoid heat damage to paint or boards where you can't get thicker insulation in it will help but for general pipe insulation forget it. I tested it on a pipe at 60'C with the wrap it read 55'C on the outside of a double thickness layer. The foam insulation next to it read under 20'C. Absolutely pointless.

Worth reading other positive reviews which I support.
Easy to use and looks to be effective but only just fitted so time will tell. Not sure what one can say about features it just is what it says it is.
Difficulty in wrapping reported by others can be overcome by cutting to lenght required or developing the technique so that one continuously feeds the tape around a close fit pipe(s) winding on further as more added. Then use of a little tape to secure ends and possibly to reinforce mid wrap finishes the job.
Recommended strongly for purpose as described.

Rated 4 out of 5Â by Pheo Ideal for joints, awkward spot
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.

I actually bought this to insulate a gap between a new front door and my existing floor boards. Wedged it in the gap, fitted a cover lat & hey presto. Problem solved
