Stay-Seal® with Protape® (SSPT) affords the most secure self-seal, dual-tape closure available.  Avoids call-backs or failures.  Maintains its seal in harsh conditions.

Aerocel® Stay-Seal® with Protape® (SSPT) Tube lnsulation is a flexible, closed-cell and light weight EPDM* based elastomeric material designed for insulating liquid cooling and heating lines. 3/8″, 1/2″, 3/4″,1″ , 1-1/4″, 1-1/2″, 2″, 2-1/2″ and 3″ wall in popular I.D. sizes up to 16″ IPS. The closed-cell structure of Aerocel Pipe lnsulation makes it an efficient insulation.

Aerocel-SSPT (Stay-Seal® with Protape®) is manufactured to consistently provide actual values on these key performance criteria for mechanical system insulation:

Thermal Conductivity: 0.245
Water Vapor Transmission: 0.03
Fire Rating: Will not contribute significantly to fire (simulated end-use testing).

Aerocel® Stay-Seal® with Protape® (SSPT) Pipe lnsulation in 1/4″ through 2″ thicknesses has a flame spread rating of 25 or less and a smoke developed rating of 50 or less as tested by ASTM E 84 “Surface Burning Characteristics of Building Materials.”

Note: Numerical flammability ratings alone may not define the performance under actual fire conditions. They are provided only for use in the selection of products to meet limits specified.

Key Features

  • UV Resistant
  • Low thermal conductivity
  • Easy to install
  • 25/50 rated through 2″ wall
  • Versatile for heating, AC, refrigeration and plumbing


Aerocel® Stay-Seal® with Protape® (SSPT) Pipe lnsulation is used to retard heat gain and control condensation drip from cold-water plumbing, chilled water, and refrigeration lines. It also efficiently reduces heat flow for hot water plumbing, liquid heating and dual temperature piping. The recommended temperature usage range for Aerocel Pipe lnsulation is -70°F to +257°F CONTINUOUS.

Aerocel is designed for installation above and below ground, indoors and outdoors. No protective finish is required.


Aerocel also is approved by or conforms to the requirements of the following: ASTM C 534 Type I and II, NY City MEA #171-04-M, City of LA RR-8413, UL 181 Section 13 Mold Growth/Humidity, ASTM G 21 Fungal Resistance Test, UL181 Section 18 Air Erosion, NFPA 90A & 90B, MIL15280J, CAN/ULC-S102-07
