I have no affiliation with the company, I just found it online last night while searching for NPB fittings insulation alternatives. Not cost-effective for straight stretches, but the ones for elbow, valve (tee), and hub look particularly interesting.

    Yeah, there're expensive. The one suitable for a 3" tee is 20 bucks ea.

    I've used them. Nice product but your paying for the ability to remove them and reinstall them. Doesn't happen often on steam!

    Yeah, remove and reinstal... and the convenience of not having to handle fiberglass.
