Quote: “Armaflex on chilled water piping is a no-brainer. You don’t grow mold on it, and you don’t have to worry about rusted pipe. Ten years from now, if they decide to go into those walls again, that pipe will look just like it did the day we installed it.” — Scott Hall, president, Dean Hall Insulation
