Can Flexible Duct be exposed to ultraviolet sunlight?

No, even though our black jacket offering has some inherent UV resistance we do not recommend the use of our product to be used in direct sunlight and cannot guarantee the longevity associated with that application.  We also do not recommend installing our flex duct core near UV lights installed inside ductwork.  Install the flex duct so that it is not in the direct path of the light rays, by adding an extension sleeve of metal before attaching the flex duct or moving it farther away from the line of sight of the UV light.
