Does anybody have experience with this type of snap on insulation for rigid liners?
How did you like it (or not)?

Can it be removed and reapplied? Or can it only be connected once?

The methods for insulating flexible liners have been thoroughly discussed on this forum. I am not finding information on insulating rigid. I can't imagine they are all getting poured liners.

The few I do I just wrap them. I could never justify the cost of the snap wrap stuff

Rigid stove pipe, insulating blankets, extra labor, it is probably no more expensive and overall more cost effective not to mention less labor intensive to purchase and install insulated flex liner.

Yes more labor intensive with no benifit over a heavy wall flex liner
