Victory Clad™ Installation Guidelines

Victory Clad™ VC 700 Series

Victory Clad™ is a strong and flexible weatherproof cladding system to insulated systems providing a long-term solution to water ingress. 

Surface Preparation:

Ensure all surfaces are dry and clean, free from dirt and dust, grease, oil and silicones. The insulation materials should be installed to industry standards and sealed using one of Victory Clad™ aluminum foil tapes.

When applying the Victory Clad™ 700 ensure that the correct pressure is applied using the plastic applicator as the adhesive is a PSA and requires a firm application to provide a full surface bond.

When placing the cut piece of Victory Clad™ 700 into position, partially peel back the liner to allow correct positioning and then rub down, continue to peel back the liner whilst pressing in to place using the hand to prevent creasing, once the full piece has been applied use the plastic applicator and rub the complete surface to ensure the full adhesive bond required.

Continue to apply Victory Clad™ ensuring that a minimum 3” overlap is observed to the previous piece to ensure a strong weatherproof seal.

Application to Ductwork

NB: All overlaps to be taped using VC 200 seaming tape to provide a long-life seal.

Rectangular Ducting:

Its best practice to provide a pitched roof watershed to rectangular ducting over 24” wide to help prevent water ponding. When installing Victory Clad™ to rectangular ducting it’s recommended that the underneath is applied first allowing for a 3” overlap to the sides, then the sides are applied providing a 3” to the underside and top before finally installing the top with an overlap on to the sides by 3”.

The seam tape VC200 is to be applied equally centered on each VC lap and butt seam.

For ducting that include reducers, it’s best practice to ensure that the overlap of the Victory Clad™ runs down on to the lower surface to provide the best watershed overlap rather than having the joint on the upward slope. This method is an essential part of the warranty.

Circular Ducting:

Cut the piece to the required length plus an extra 3” for the overlap, place the cut piece of Victory Clad™ into position, partially peel back the liner to allow correct positioning and then rub down, continue to peel back the liner whilst pressing in to place using the hand to prevent creasing, once the full piece has been applied use the plastic applicator and rub the complete surface to ensure the full adhesive bond required.

Continue to apply Victory Clad™ ensuring that a minimum 3” overlap is observed to the previous piece to ensure a strong, weatherproof seal.

Increased Mechanical Protection:

The Victory Clad™ although is mechanically strong and flexible which helps prevent damage, there are environments that may require extra protection such as areas of high foot traffic and areas that could see potential damage from birds such as seagulls, crows etc.

In these areas of concern please contact your local Victory Clad™ representative for advice in providing a solution.

Maintenance & Repair:

We recommend that regular annual inspections are carried out on completed systems to review the performance of the application and to repair any damage that has occurred, this will help maintain the life of the system and ensure the insulated system is working efficiently.

Should there be any damage then it’s a simple repair by cleaning the surrounding surface of the damaged area by 4” to all sides of the area and then apply a new piece ensuring that it’s rubbed firmly in to place with the plastic applicator. Your system is then complete.

Application to Pipe Work

 Straight Pipe:

Cut first piece of Victory Clad™ to wrap around the pipe insulation and allow an extra 3” for the overlap, partially peel back the liner to allow easy positioning, rub into position before continuing to peel back the liner and smooth into place using the hand, once fully in place use the plastic applicator to rub firmly in to place. Continue to place further pieces in the same manner allowing for a 3” overlap on to the previous piece.

Pipe Elbows:

There are two ways to apply to the elbow:

  1. Pre-apply Victory Clad™ on to the pipe section before installation and then cut the segments to fit according to the type of bend, place the segments on to the pipe and tape together using Victory Clad™ 200 tape and rub firmly into place.
  2. To site apply Victory Clad™  to the elbow cut fish templates similar to metal fittings, partially peel back the liner to allow correct positioning of the segment piece before removing liner and rubbing segment firmly in place. Once in place the use of the Victory Clad™  200 seaming tape can be used to seal the segment joints if required.

 Pipe Tees:

There are two ways to apply to the tee:

  1. Pre-apply Victory Clad™ on to the pipe section before installation and then cut the shapes to fit the pipe tee, place the cut segments and tape into place using Victory Clad™ 200 seaming tape ensuring that the segments are pushed tightly together before applying theVictory Clad™ 200 seaming tape. Rub the tape firmly from the center of the tape outwards ensuring the tape edge provides a flat tight seal. All longitudinal and butt joints to be taped with Victory Clad™  200 seaming tape.
  2. Cut templates as per metal jacketing to fit the Tee section, where the Tee segments meet use the Victory Clad™  200 tape to seal the Tee joint rubbing from the tape centre outwards to provide a flat tight seal. All longitudinal and butt joints to be taped using Victory Clad™ 200 seaming tape and rubbed down firmly to provide a strong smooth seal.

Notes:

The insulation materials should be installed to the industry standards before installing Victory Clad™  failure to so may affect the long-term performance of the product. 

All underlying insulation products should be sealed using one of the Victory Tapes range of aluminum foil tapes to maintain the warranty conditions.
