An insulating member or tube having an expanded foam core layer surrounded by a layer or jacket of flexible solid rubber, wherein the core layer and the flexible rubber are formed of similar material with similar coefficients of thermal expansion. An insulating member or tube according to the present general inventive concept, by having a core layer and a cover layer with similar coefficients of thermal expansion, provides enhanced insulating capability over competing insulation systems and shows greater resistance to damage to the core layer from externally introduced moisture or other environmental factors.

A system and method to make stacked connector members for readily joining adjacent ends of sections of insulation tubing. Each of the stacked connector members includes a carrier member having a central opening. A layer of double-sided adhesive material is coated on each side of the carrier member, such that one side of the layer of double-sided adhesive material is able to bond to an end face of one section of insulation tubing, and the other side of the layer of double-sided adhesive material is able to bond to an end face of the second section of insulation tubing. In some embodiments, the layer of double-sided adhesive includes a scrim that acts as a reinforcing structure to keep the layer of double-sided adhesive material intact as a single body during and after application between two adjacent sections of insulation tubing.
