NIA Is Proud to Offer the New Mechanical Insulation Installation Video Series

Newly created by the industry for the industry, these installation videos provide a general overview and basic how-to guide for mechanical insulation applications. Based in part on NIA’s popular Craft Training Video Series, each video is generic in nature, incorporates consensus recommendations from the sponsoring manufacturers, and the applications demonstrated were completed by experienced field mechanics on piping and equipment mock-ups representing project applications. The videos are a great industry resource for supplementing existing craft training programs; educational programs for new or existing sales, service, and administrative employees; and for indirect users to obtain an overview of application practices for the respective insulation materials.
