K-Flex names RectorSeal an approved master distributor

RectorSeal has been named an approved master distributor for K-Flex HVAC/R piping insulation and tapes.

K-Flex is one of the HVAC/R industry’s largest manufacturers of refrigerant lineset insulation and tapes for commercial and residential air conditioning and refrigeration systems.

The distribution relationship will initially comprise of three product lines: Titan, a closed cell, elastomeric foam insulation with a flexible, co-extruded UV- resistant jacketing for linesets; Foam Tape, a NBR/PVC-based, closed cell, elastomeric tape with a factory-applied pressure sensitive adhesive designed for short pipe runs or where tubing insulation is impractical to cover, such as covering fittings or valves; and Cork Tape, a 55-per-cent cork-filled, rubber-based insulating tape with a grainy, rubber-like consistency designed for covering fittings and valves.

RectorSeal will distribute the products to traditional HVAC/R wholesale distributors in Canada and the U.S.

All three products and their energy-saving thermal dynamic characteristics comply with the International Energy Conservation Code (IECC) and International Residential Code (IRC).

“We see RectorSeal as a leading HVAC/R manufacturer that also has an excellent distribution footprint,” said Matt Hair, K-Flex’s North American director of sales. “They presented an exciting vision for our products’ sales growth that would benefit our company as well as the industry. RectorSeal’s demonstrated success as a provider of comprehensive line of accessories leads wholesalers and contractors to their website to find products, such as lineset insulation and tapes.”

“This relationship expands our product line, but more importantly it allows our independent distributors to now execute smaller quantities of K-Flex within their Rectorseal orders without incurring large inventories and separate freight charges,” said Jeff Underwood, RectorSeal’s vice-president of sales and marketing.  “Our ultimate goal is to make it easy for distributors to do business with us.”
