AEROFLEX® Saniguard


AEROFLEX® with SaniGuard is a perfect choice for piping systems where sanitary conditions must be maintained and/or surfaces will be exposed to washdown. Typical applications include food and beverage processing, refrigeration/frozen storage facilities, pharmaceutical plants, and grocery stores. The properly sized SaniGuard jacketing is supplied with the AEROFLEX EPDM closed-cell elastomeric pipe insulation as a separate component in the carton to be field-installed. A matching white 2” PVC tape is available to seal PVC seams (sold separately).

The SaniGuard jacketing provides a smooth, highly cleanable surface that repels liquid and resists abrasion. It also meets FDA and USDA washdown standards when installed with PIC Welding Adhesive (sold separately).

AEROFLEX® with SaniGuard also offers UV and mechanical protection for exterior applications.
