what is the purpose of the white PVC evap enclosure on SS's?

im just doing a bit of work on my vapochill LS. i cleaned out a heap of dust from the condenser and im adding a second 120mm fan for push-pull setup.
anyhoo, im re-doing the insulation for the evap block. im wondering what the purpose of the white pvc enclosure is.
i was thinking of wrapping plumber/thread tape around the block to try to prevent air contact. then adding the black insulation foam around that. but what is the pvc on there for?
also if i use rubber bands to squeeze in the foam, do you think they will freeze and snap?

The push pull fan setup will make a nice increase in load capacity.
the foam insert is used to insulate the copper block and improve temperatures.
personally i would stick with the current foam insert.
if you want to ensure there is no air getting into the socket you can use either seal string or erasors to seal it air tight around the enclosure against the mobo insulation



what cpu will you be cooling, their current enclosure only does 775 socket.
