Alumaguard is a composite membrane consisting of a multi-ply embossed UV-resistant aluminum foil/polymer laminate to which is applied a layer of rubberized asphalt specially formulated for use on insulated duct and piping applications. The rubberized asphalt acts as the substrate adhesive and provides the self-healing characteristics necessary to seal around punctures. Protecting the rubberized asphalt is an easily removed plastic release liner which gives Alumaguard its peel and stick functionality.
Alumaguard is designed to be used outdoors to weather-proof exterior insulated ductwork, piping or other insulated tanks, vessels and equipment. Alumaguard resists moisture, air and vapor intrusion.
