Sealant for Wrapped Tracing Lines

03/01/2016 7:54 AM

Talk about taking things for granted... Often plants will insulate tracing lines where they exit the insulation on the process line with woven fiberglass tape. They are then coated with some kind of sealant. Does anyone happen to know what it is or what will work. I was directed to a product called Miracle D617 by IWT but they don't make it anymore. It is sort of a duct sealant. Why I never paid attention to what it was I can't tell you, now I need some.

Suggestions will be appreciated!

Did that, but it isn't useful if you're not sure what you are looking for. Just like your answer.

Why not go back to the unidentified person who, "directed [you] to a product called Miracle D617 by IWT" and ask them what to do?

James Stewart has provided you with excellent choices.

If you still can't make a decision, try this link: Product Selection Chart.

If you are not sure what you are looking for, how can anybody supply you with a solution?

ITW still show D617 as a product, along with several others.

I talked to them and was told they didn't make it any longer. Give me some credit, here.

How about the other products they show with your original, they all seem to have similar functions?

Maybe that it's a solvent base sealant. Most have gone to a water base sealant.

Plants don't do it. People do.

Refer to the facility's Piping Insulation Standards.

Or contact the facility's Purchasing Department.

And this is why I am reluctant to post questions here. If I wanted to deal with a bunch of internet bullies, I'd play an MMO. Sheeh, never mind. Sorry I woke y'all up.

Chill out buddy! We are actually attempting to help you. Please don't give up just because the first couple of guys answering were the losers of round 1 and round 2 of "stump the band".

...and once selected, write it up in a Pipe Insulation Standard for the facility so that others there can follow it.
