EPX-H2O Coating

Tips for Preparing Your Facility for the Winter Chill (Icephobic Coatings & More!)

When the freezing weather hits, it can put a chill on facility operations. Fluids in non-insulated lines or tanks can freeze, ice build up can cause corrosion pitting and personnel safety concerns, and small parts can freeze up and corrode. The good news is that there is generally plenty of time to

Improve Facility Efficiency & Worker Productivity by Insulating Exhaust Ducts

One area of heat process equipment that tends to go uninsulated are the large industrial exhaust ducts that are used to expel excess heat from industrial ovens, extruders, boilers, and other processing activities. Because the heat is being removed from the process and expelled elsewhere (usually outside), there’s a belief that the

Case Study: Chemical Tank Insulation (Payback in Just 15 Months!)

The chemical industry is one were insulating storage tanks can be challenging. Not only do they have to insulate huge surface areas of tanks that are 30’ high (or taller), they also have to worry about corrosion that can put the integrity of the tank in danger. Insulating with traditional materials (fiberglass

Case Study: Ovens Insulated to Save Over 3 Million Btus per Year

One of the industrial applications that the Heat Shield™ EPX-H2O thermal insulation coating was specifically designed for is the insulation of large industrial ovens to solve issues with energy loss and personnel safety without interfering with the oven related processes. The EPX-H2O coating is rugged enough to be used on the outside

Chemical Industry Challenges Solved with Corrosion and Chemical Resistant Insulating Paints

When it comes to corrosion, chemical and petrochemical facilities have unique challenges. Chemical plants typically contain a wide variety of corrosive environments where not only moisture, but also a variety of chemicals, are present and create multiple challenges for asset protection. Insulating equipment is often necessary to keep chemicals at a desired

Improve Hot Working Conditions in Factories by Insulating Equipment

Each summer, thousands of factories around the world face the same issue… trying to keep the working environment cool to protect their personnel and avoid heat-related health problems. They seek ways to improve hot working conditions in factories by insulating equipment with something that will last and be effective over the long-term.

Heat Shield Coatings: The Perfect Solution for Insulating Large Tanks

One of the more difficult assets to insulate well are large tanks, such as those that hold fuel oil, process asphalt, or are used in chemical processing and more. The sheer size of the tanks, which can be multiple stories high, means there is a lot of area for heat loss or

Operation-Friendly Insulation Coatings

One of the constant struggles of any manufacturing facility is how to perform equipment maintenance without disrupting operations. Certain types of activities can only be done while the equipment is shut down, and this generally requires waiting for pre-scheduled downtime. So if you’re losing energy and want to install a traditional wrap

Thermal Insulating Paint Video Demonstration | From 352F to Safe Touch in 2 Hours

One issue that is universal to facilities and factories around the world is the need to protect personnel from the burn risks of hot equipment surfaces. Both OSHA and ISO 45001 Occupational Health and Safety standards provide requirements for personnel safety and often clients we work with are trying to meet those

Easy Steps for an Outstanding Heat Shield™ EPX-H2O Demo at Your Company

You’ve just discovered a better way to insulate your ovens and miles of steam pipe for energy savings and to prevent CUI,  and now you’ve got to convince “corporate” that Heat Shield™ EPX-H2O is as great as it looks on paper. This is often a stuck point for many facilities. Their plant
