Lowering costs is at the top of just about every facility manager’s list. When making decisions for improving energy efficiency and reducing waste, the goal is generally to do more and save more at the same time.
Synavax™ coatings are uniquely suited to cost savings in a variety of areas in a facility because they’re designed to be multi-purpose. When you work with Synavax™ products, you’re not just getting an insulation or an anti-corrosion coating, you’re getting both and more in a complete cost saving product with multiple uses.
Benefits that our products provide include:
- Insulation for hot equipment
- Insulation for cold equipment
- Building insulation
- Ductwork inisulation
- Mold/mildew resistance
- UV resistance
- Chemical resistance
- Corrosion prevention
- Moisture resistance
- Personnel safety coating
You can walk around any facility and always find a cost saving application that Synavax™ coatings can help with.
Here are 5 major ways you can use these thermal insulation and protective coatings to save money and improve efficiency.
1. Insulate Steam Pipes & Hot Equipment to Lower Process Energy Costs
Heat Shield™ EPX-H2O is a powerful thermal insulation coating that was designed to stand up to harsh factory environments and perform consistently for a decade or more. It’s easily sprayed onto the exterior of pipes, ovens, boilers, and other heat process equipment to reduce heat loss and lower energy costs.
Industrial customers report saving between 15% to 35% or more on their process energy costs after using the product. It was born to live in factories, so it doesn’t degrade in severe service environments like older fibrous insulations do, therefore giving you considerable savings on replacement costs in addition to the energy saving costs.
2 Insulate Building Roofs and Walls to Lower HVAC Costs
Adding insulation to an existing building is not always easy, unless you use a coating that insulates, like ours does. Both CrystalShield™ for roofs and Energy Protect™ for walls are as easily applied as a paint and they provide insulation to reduce heating and cooling costs.
Customers using our insulating paints for buildings report between 20% to 40% lower heating and cooling costs.
3. Coat Areas Prone to Mold to Reduce Cleaning Costs
Do you have areas of your building that need continual cleaning to keep mold away? Besides being excellent insulation, our coatings also are naturally mold/mildew resistant and help surfaces stay clean longer!
Lower your maintenance coats significantly by painting your mold prone areas and keep them clean for 5-10 years or more.
4. Apply to Metal Surfaces to Stop Corrosion
Synavax™ coatings were designed to eliminate the multi-billion dollar problem of corrosion under insulation (CUI) by proving anti-corrosion benefits and insulation in a single product.
Save money by increasing asset longevity. Stop corrosion both on insulated surfaces and other areas prone to rust by coating them with Heat Shield™ Translucent PT (up to 256F) or High Heat (up to 400F).
5. Coat Hot Surfaces for Personnel Safety
Do you have outdoor handrails that heat up to burning hot temperatures in the summer? Is equipment like an oven or boiler causing problems with employee burn risk? Synavax™ Heat Shield™ coatings make excellent insulation for ovens, boilers, and multiple other hot surfaces help you insulate to save energy and also reduce hot surfaces to a safe to touch level.
We can take a surface as hot as 400F down to a safe touch of approximately 140F, lowering your risk and costs related to personnel safety.
