Painted King Tacks for Color PVC
Brand : The Insulation King
Painted King Tacks are used as a closure system for Color PVC Fitting Covers and Color PVC Jacketing. When installing non-white colored PVC insulation covers, the use of standard white insulation tacks makes the insulation look unprofessional because the white tack heads stick out from the color PVC, making them extremely noticeable and unsightly. Colored King Tacks are painted to match the PVC colors for Zeston/Speedline PVC. Select the color you require and select the quantity needed.
*Please note that paint colors may vary slightly from the actual PVC colors.
If you are using standard white PVC Fittings/Jacket please order the standard White King Tacks.
These tacks are very small and they really take time to install. I found that pushing these tacks into the PVC covers was the hardest part of my job. They do look nice matching the different colors of PVC.
I purchased these in black because we install a lot of black polyethylene pipe cover and use black fittings in the water heater rooms. These are a little expensive, but the look great!!
We install a lot of colored PVC covers and jacket and this is the first time we used the painted tacks. In the past we used colored markers to paint the tack after install which we found was time consuming and still stood out. These colored tacks match the color of the PVC good.
You are going to need these! Pretty similar to thumb-tacks, but are serrated to keep them from backing out. Be sure to order these when you order your fittings!
*These are definitely an item you are going to want to order with your PVC fitting covers ~BIP
Glad these came in the 50 qty. bag to use on my residence, as 500 is a little bit more than I'd ever need! Thanks for limiting wasted product and money.
*Art, we agree that the 50 tack bag is just right for a home project ~ BIP
The tacks work fine. The how-to videos were helpful. I found it easier if I used a small bungee on the elbows and Ts (1 on the elbows and 2 on the Ts) to secure them temporarily and that made it easier to put in the tacks. The products in general were high quality- better than Home Depot.
I purchased the Stainless Steel Tacks in connection with my purchase of 90 degree and Tee fittings. The tacks hold the fittings in place and were not hard to push into place.
