PVC 45 Degree Elbow Covers are used to insulate 45 degree pipe elbows. Each fitting comes with a sized fiberglass insert which is a die-cut fiberglass blanket. The fiberglass insert is wrapped around the elbow ensuring that all of the pipe is covered by insulation. The PVC Fitting Cover is a premolded plastic one piece cover that fits around both ends of the fiberglass pipe insulation and overlaps on the inside seam. The inside seam of the PVC Fitting Cover can be closed one of three ways:
1.) Use serrated stainless steel King Tacks which are pressed through the overlapping pieces of the fitting cover and will hold them securely. (Steam, Hot Water, etc)
2.) Use PVC Vinyl Z-Tape to seal the fitting cover to the fiberglass pipe insulation. (Cold Water, Chilled Liquid, etc)
3.) Use Proto One PVC Adhesive to glue the seams of the fitting cover. (Exterior Piping, USDA, Washdown Area, etc)
*Tacks, Vinyl Tape, and Adhesive are sold seperately.

HOW TO INSTALL PVC FITTING COVERS
Posted by Bernard on 1st Sep 2015
I orderd a 45 degree elbow for 1 1/4 iron pipe #9.
It did not fit right. #9 is also the same size for 1 inch pipe.
This was a test fit so I will order a #10 which is for 1 1/2 pipe and hope that works better
*Bernard, these PVC fittings are sized based on the outside diameter of the pipe insulation, 1-1/4 x 1 and 1 x 1 both have the same outside diameter (3.5"). A #10 will fit a 4" diameter so it will likely be too large. I will contact you to discuss further so we get you the correct sizes. ~ BIP
