Insulation shapes are either precision machined with CNC, die-cut, or hand fabricated to fit items as small as a deck of cards or as large as a hemispherical tank head. There is no minimum size for insulation shape orders placed with The Insulation Guy. We will cut to ASTM (American Society for Testing and Materials) standard dimensions, manufacturer's drawings, or custom fit, depending on the requirements of your insulation project. These custom industrial insulation materials can be used at any temperature between -450ºF and 1200ºF.
We pride ourselves in being truly knowledgeable in understanding how to solve your application and protection problems, however simple or complex. Just call us during business hours toll-free at 800-734-8771 or complete our Contact/RFQ form.
Make sure your insulation shapes can withstand the test of time by protecting them with metal jacketing and additional accessories.
Pair custom-manufactured insulation shapes with PVC jacketing to insulate even the sharpest of angles. PVC accessories are available in a variety of sizes.
To protect insulation, create a vapor barrier and seal seams between shapes with coating cement, silicone caulking, reinforcing fabric, and breather coating.
At The Insulation Guy, we understand that each and every application is unique. That is why we do not require minimum or maximum specs for custom-made insulation shapes. Each and every shape regardless of size is crafted with the highest-quality industrial insulation materials before being custom-cut to fit any application in any industrial work site perfectly.
The process starts with a custom assessment and quote where we learn about what type of insulation shape will most suit and benefit your business. Then, we will work with you to design, manufacture, and ship custom insulation shapes to your site. We ship across the United States and around the world.

Questions about custom insulation shapes? See what others are asking.
Where can custom insulation shapes be used?
Custom industrial insulation shapes can be used to insulate corners and turns of pipes, ductwork, storage containers, and more. This type of insulation is perfect for abnormal and circular spaces that traditional and straight insulation does not work well on. Custom insulation shapes can be used to insulate extremely hot or extremely cold applications.
Why does it matter how insulation shapes are manufactured?
Having insulation shapes custom-made makes a huge difference in performance and long-term cost savings. When shapes are CNC-machined and die-cut, you can be sure that they fit their desired applications perfectly. This means that there are no unnecessary gaps in insulation, which let out heat or cold air and force you to spend more on heating and cooling.
How long do insulation shapes last?
Custom foam insulation shapes can last for decades when protected and maintained properly. Over time, all insulation breaks down. To extend the lifespan of your insulation, make sure that you take steps to reduce condensation in the area as this has the potential to expedite the breakdown process. Additionally, before installing insulation shapes, you will need to make sure that the materials are properly rated for your application. If you are not sure how to find the perfect insulation shape(s) for your job, call the professionals.
How do I know what type of jacketing should be used for insulation shapes?
The type of insulation jacketing needed to cover and protect insulation shapes will depend on where and how a shape is being used. Shapes used to insulate extremely hot or cold temperatures should be protected by metal jacketing. Metal jacketing is more apt to withstand extreme temperatures without melting or cracking. PVC jacketing is appropriate when an application falls more in the mid-range of temperatures. PVC, a plastic derivative, may crack in extreme cold, or warp in extreme heat.
What else do I need to know about custom insulation shapes?
It is important to know that custom insulation shapes cannot be used as the only form of insulation in industrial settings. This type of insulation is meant to be paired with other forms of insulation such as fiberglass or insulation wraps. Most insulation shapes need to be covered with fitted jackets of some kind.
