This is a dense foam rubber insulation. Not a ridged foam made for plumbing lines. It goes on the larger diameter copper line. This is where the cold freon travels. Check it at your unit outside, by the unit inside, and in the attic if it runs through the attic. This insulation deteriorates from sun light and for some reason dogs love to chew it. You can buy 8’
Suction Line stick of this insulation at supply houses like Home Depot or Lowes. It comes in different diameter sizes 1/2″, 3/4″, or 1″. So measure the diameter of your suction line before you go to the store. When the line is not insulated you loose some of the cooling ability to exterior heat, attic heat, and the line will condensate which could cause water stains to the ceiling if exposed in the attic.
