PVC 45° Deg Elbow Cover
Brand : Proto / JM
- Unit Of Measure:
- Each (with Fiberglass Insert)
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 pipe jacket 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 pipe jacket can be closed one of three ways:
1.) Use serrated stainless steel King Tacks which are pressed through the overlapping pieces of the PVC pipe jacket 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 separately.
*PVC 45° Elbow Covers are available in 13 high gloss Colors!

HOW TO INSTALL PVC FITTING COVERS
I used this to cover bends in heating-cooling ducts in the ceiling of an un-heated tuck-under garage. They worked quite well for a single bend between two straight runs insulated with fiberglass sleeves. The runs were also enclosed with PVC wraps. They were more difficult to install where two 45 degree were used to create an offset because the bends were quite close together. I got it done with some cutting and use of quite a bit of PVC tape
The PVC pipe covers look so much neater and cleaner than the old method! Makes the basement room feel clean and finished. Quick and easy to install. I'll be purchasing more for the rest of the basement.
These fitting covers fit properly and look good.
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
