Hydrophobic Coatings

Visualize Your Insulation Project with Synavax | Thermal Insulating Paint Videos

Just how much is EPX-H2O going to reduce our steam pipe temperature? What does “hydrophobic” look like? How soon can my employees touch our steam vessel and not get burned? Those are just few of the questions from customers considering Synavax™ thermal insulation coatings for their projects and questions that our library

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

Synavax™ Coatings for Easy Insulation for the Transportation Industry

One industry with unique challenges when it comes to insulation is the transportation industry. They need insulation that can handle a variety of environments, can be used in tight spaces and that won’t add weight to their trucks or ships. Synavax™ coatings have been used in refrigerated transport vans, mobile food storage

The Facts about Moisture and Insulation You Need to Know

One of the biggest factors that can cause that “R-something” insulation on your pipes or in your attic to lose its insulation value dramatically is moisture. It’s a well-known drawback of fiberglass or mineral wool insulation - moisture infiltration reduces their insulating value - sometimes completely negating it all together. It can

Three Excellent Uses for Anti-Icing Surface Coatings

One of the issues that comes with the colder fall and winter weather is unwanted ice formation. Water freezing on surfaces can cause any number of problems, including icicles falling on roads or personnel, freezing water in crevices damaging concrete tanks and walls, and ice formation on bridges creating unsafe conditions. There

Outdoor Tank Winter Preparation Tips

Winter weather brings unique challenges for facilities with outside tanks, such as water tanks, heated fuel oil tanks, asphalt tanks, and food processing tanks. The frigid winter temperatures often increase the risk for tank damage and emergency repairs. But this can be avoided if you prepare properly. Insulation is a big part

Clearing Up Thermal Insulation Coating Misconceptions

When our patented thermal insulation coatings first came on the market in early 2004, they disrupted conventional thinking about how to insulate. No longer did facilities have to suffer from corrosion under insulation (CUI) or use insulation that harbored dirt, dust, and mold. Thermal insulation coatings offer a whole new way to

The Importance of Moisture Resistant Insulation

It happens in factories just about every day. Insulation being saturated with moisture from condensation, steam, or rain, and being rendered useless. We’ve often seen wet and dingy insulation hanging from pipes or tanks, just waiting to be replaced with a better, moisture resistant solution. That’s where Synavax™ thermal insulation coatings come
