Business Case for Protective & Sustainable Biofuel Coatings
“The domestic bio-industry could play an important part in the growing clean energy economy and in reducing American dependence on imported oil. This funding opportunity will support companies that are working to advance current technologies and help them overcome existing challenges in bioenergy so the industry can meet its full potential.”
Our Team has helped many biofuel facilities find an effective and affordable way to insulate their fuel storage tanks, pipelines, and steam pipes. Old fiberglass or mineral wool insulation only lasts about a year or so, they tell us, and it’s expensive to add the required exterior jacketing over it and to repair the corrosion it causes later. Some have also tried ceramic paints, but haven’t been satisfied.
That’s why savvy biofuel refinery operators turn to Synavax™ thermal barrier coatings. Once they try us, they never need to search for a biofuel tank insulation solution again.
1) Just Spray Our Coatings On
2) Insulate Pipes, Tanks, and Other Equipment
3) No Exterior Jacketing Needed
That’s the power of nanotechnology!
That’s the power of Synavax™ concentrated insulation & corrosion prevention coatings!
Testing Shows Superior Anti-Corrosion and Insulation
When you want to protect fuel storage tanks for biofuel, biodiesel, or ethanol from corrosion, you can do it at the same time as insulating. Synavax™ thermal insulation coatings have been tested to the most rigorous corrosion prevention standards using cyclical salt spray and temperature flux testing methods. Here’s what you can expect:
All Synavax™ Heat Shield™ translucent coatings:
Passed 24-cycles (8-cycles is minimum passing) of the GM9540P salt spray corrosion test. No rust present.
Passed the BP (British Petroleum Standard) for Resistance to CUI, a 100 day cyclical salt spray test. No rust, no disbondment, no flaking.
Heat Shield™ EPX-H20:
Passed the popular ASTM B117 Salt Spray Corrosion Test at 750 hours with an Excellent rating.

Synavax™ Award Winning Biofuel Insulation Technology
For over a decade, Synavax™ has served the biofuel insulation, energy saving, and corrosion protection needs of multiple biofuel industries around the world, including pulp and paper manufacturing, food and beverage manufacturing, biofuel and biodiesel manufacturing, oil and gas, textile manufacturing and many others. Our coatings represent a superior corrosion prevention and insulation that stands up to any biofuel environment without need for exterior cover. Besides just thermal protection and corrosion prevention, our technology also offers several protective benefits such as UV resistance and chemical resistance.
Our insulation coatings are designed for the harshest outdoor and offshore environments, such as those experienced by our customer Sinopec on their offshore fuel oil storage tanks, fuel storage tanks and steam pipes like those at Smart Fuels, and food safe environments, like those of client Grupo Modelo (maker of Corona Beer). Our customers choose Synavax™ industrial coating solutions because of the superior combined energy savings and corrosion protection benefits.
Heat Shield™ EPX–H2O is our #1 high temperature biofuel corrosion protective and insulation coating. It is proven to solve the most difficult energy efficiency, corrosion, CUI, and safe touch problems of factories and industries. Using Synavax™ technology as biofuel insulation gives you peace of mind for 10-years or more knowing your application will be insulated and protected from corrosion and weathering. Read more about this powerful, energy saving, and easy to use thermal barrier coating below.
Heat Shield™ EPX-H2O is a complete insulation system for pipes and tanks and can provide 100% insulation coverage of all odd-shaped configurations. This next generation pipe and tank insulation has you covered for all types of directives – energy savings, safe touch for employee safety, heat radiation reduction, and asset protection from chemicals and corrosion. Don’t leave uninsulated areas in your pipe and tank insulation system that will lead to heat and energy loss. Instead use an easy spray-on solution that can coat, protect, and insulate your entire tank and pipe system, including valves, boilers, heat exchangers, piping, and more.
