    I need to find some insulation for a 1.5" steel pipe. All the depot and other places I look have are 1/2",3/4".

    Where can I get some of the foam stuff for 1.5"

    Thanks

    I've never seen foam for pipes that big.

    You can get fiberglass sleeves in the HVAC section that size - used for insulating heat pipes.

    They make the larger sizes of foam insulation, but you have to cut it and glue it back together if you cannot slide it onto the pipe before installation. Most air conditioning suppliers and many plumbing supply houses will have it.
