          PART 3EXECUTION
 
          3.1EXAMINATION
 
          A.Examine substrates, areas, and conditions, with installer present where indicated, for compliance with requirements for installation tolerances and other conditions affecting performance.
          1.Verify that items scheduled to receive jacketing have been tested and are free of defects that prevent adhesion and proper installation of jacketing.
          2.Verify that surfaces to receive jacketing are clean and dry, free of dust, dirt, contaminants, oils, grease, etc.
 
          B.If substrate preparation is the responsibility of another installer, notify Architect in writing of unsatisfactory preparation before proceeding.
 
          3.2PREPARATION
 
          A.Clean surfaces thoroughly prior to installation.
 
          B.Prepare surfaces using the methods recommended by the manufacturer for achieving the best result for the substrate under the project conditions.
 
          3.3INSTALLATION
 
          A.Install in accordance with manufacturer's instructions, approved submittals and in proper relationship with adjacent construction.
 
          B.Install jackets compatible with insulation materials and suitable for the service. Install jackets that do not corrode, soften, or otherwise attack insulation in either wet or dry state.
 
          C.For insulation with factory-applied jacket, install the field-applied jacket over the factory-applied jacket.
 
          D.If more than one jacketing material is specified, selection from materials specified is Contractor's option.
 
          E.Install jackets at thicknesses specified for each item of pipe [and equipment] system as specified in insulation system schedules.
 
          F.Install jacketing materials, accessories, and tapes with smooth, straight, and even surfaces; free of voids, bubbles, and open edges throughout the length of piping including fittings, valves, and specialties.
 
          G.Keep jacket materials dry during application and finishing.
 
          H.Install jacketing with least number of joints practical, and with tight overlapping seams and end joints. Tape seams and joints with specified or manufacturers' recommended tapes.
          1.Install jacketing continuously around hanger and anchor attachments.
          2.Extend jacketing and taping onto anchor legs from point of attachment to supported item to point of attachment to structure. Tape and seal ends at attachment to structure with vapor-barrier mastic.
          3.Overlap jacketing to ensure water-shedding.
 
          I.Where vapor barrier is required, tape joints, seams, and penetrations at hangers, supports, anchors, and other projections with vapor-barrier tapes.
          1.Cover joints with tape strips of same material as, or compatible with jacketing in accordance with manufacturer's requirements.
          2.Clean and dry surface to receive self-sealing lap.
          3.Overlap jacket seams at least 1-1/2 inches (38 mm).
          4.Overlap jacketing to ensure water-shedding.
 
          J.Cut jacketing in a manner to avoid compressing insulation.
 
          K.Repair damaged jacket facings by applying same facing material over damaged areas. Extend patches at least 4 inches (100 mm) beyond damaged areas.
 
          L.Do not install jacketing to the following:
          1.Vibration-control devices.
          2.Testing agency labels and stamps.
          3.Nameplates and data plates.
          4.Cleanouts.
 
          3.4FIELD QUALITY CONTROL
          ** NOTES TO SPECIFIER ** Inspections in this article are destructive. Retain if workmanship quality is an important requirement. Architect should be prepared to reject all work if defective work is discovered in sample inspection.
 
          A.Perform specified tests and inspections.
 
          B.Tests and Inspections: Inspect equipment, pipes, fittings, strainers, and valves, randomly selected by Architect, by removing field-applied jacket and insulation in layers in reverse order of their installation.
 
          C.All insulation jacketing and taping applications will be considered defective Work if sample inspection reveals noncompliance with specified requirements and manufacturer's requirements.
 
          3.5CLEANING AND PROTECTION
 
          A.Clean products in accordance with the manufacturers recommendations.
 
          B.Touch-up, repair or replace damaged products before Substantial Completion.
