Thermal-insulating coatings solve painting and insulating problems by protecting surfaces from ambient conditions. Houston-based Mascoat Products suggests seven ways process heating operations can benefit from using thermal-insulating coatings.
  • Heat exchanger protection protects personnel.
  • Heat retention and boiler or pan protection protects personnel and improves boiler efficiency.
  • Condensation control eliminates condensation in plant areas.
  • Tank protection reduces thermal shock and increases condensation control. It also can be used on tanks to improve heat or cold retention.
  • Diffuser protection improves heat retention and provides substrate protection.
  • Piping protection insulates pipes and provides substrate protection. When applied to piping, it also provides personnel protection because lower substrate temperatures keep hot piping within OSHA guidelines.
  • Extruder protection helps insulate and protect molds in plastic applications.
