Synavax™ coatings save facilities money in energy costs along with several other ways that impact maintenance costs. Here are some examples.
A significant cost in many facilities that use legacy insulation like fiberglass or mineral wool is due to the corrosion that it causes. Moisture easily saturates fibrous insulation and becomes trapped between the insulation and the equipment surface allowing it to corrode. Unless this is checked regularly and repaired, it can cause degradation that means equipment repairs or replacement.
Synavax™ coatings are designed to prevent corrosion as well as provide insulation, so when you insulate your equipment with our coatings, you’re also reducing corrosion-related maintenance costs at the same time.
Fibrous insulation typically needs replacement in the span of about 1-2 years, depending upon the environment. It degrades quickly due to dust, dirt, mold, and moisture infiltration. This replacement is a big ticket item in the maintenance budget because it involves tearing off the old insulation, disposing of it, and reinstalling insulation over the entire area.
Synavax™ Heat Shield™ EPX-H2O coating has a 10-year warranty and will last well beyond that. It’s impervious to mold, moisture, dirt, and dust infiltration and is designed to stand up for years in the harshest of environments. This means your insulation stays in place and working at top efficiency much, much longer.
Protection from UV Damage & Mold
Both inside and outside, harsh UV rays can cause damage like fading of exterior paint and interior assets, such as furniture and carpets that are near windows or skylights. UV rays coupled with heat from the sun can also cause warping of certain building materials like vinyl siding and cause materials to degrade and need replacement sooner.
Mold is another big item in a maintenance budget in humid areas, and it can cost thousands of dollars to continually clean roofs and exteriors.
Synavax™ Energy Protect™ is a clear building insulation coating that also offers exceptional protection against UV rays, heat, and mold growth. It’s an all-in-one solution when it comes to lowering building maintenance costs in several areas.
