3 Ways to Cut Costs for Operating Your Building with Synavax Coatings

When you’re operating a building, there is always a balance between cost efficiency and occupant safety and comfort. Costs include everything from ongoing maintenance, to energy used for the heating and cooling system, to installation of safety features like handrails, and there’s a constant prioritization happening between those needs and your budget.

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

5 Smart Ways to Proactively Reduce Factory Downtime

When production comes to a halt it’s one of the biggest “Red Alerts” in any factory.  When a plant is experiencing downtime it means orders aren’t being filled and staff are idle waiting on the problem to get corrected.  And each minute that production is down, costs are skyrocketing. The average manufacturer

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

Three Great Ways to Keep Metal Buildings Cooler

When the summer sun hits, metal buildings can heat up fast and make working conditions inside pretty unbearable. Metal is an excellent conductor of heat, so when the temperature is 90 degrees Fahrenheit outside, a metal building can easily heat up past the 100 degree mark without proper HVAC. And even with

Incorporate Thermal Insulation and Protective Coatings into Your Corporate Sustainability Initiatives

Many companies have corporate sustainability and corporate social responsibility (CSR) initiatives that have far reaching positive impacts. They’re designed to do things such as: Reduce energy consumption Lower carbon emissions Improve employee health and safety Employ sustainable packaging Reduce excess waste Lower water use In a nutshell, companies commit to running their

A Positive Review of Nanotech Corrosion Control Coatings with Dual Insulation Technology for Tank Exteriors

Durable and Powerful NanoEngineered Sustainable Coatings are the Leading Solution Plant managers are tasked with the ongoing maintenance of tanks that are insulated and the corrosion and corrosion under insulation that creeps beneath the outmoded mineral wool and cladding systems of yesteryear. From chemical factories to the oil fields, tanks are arguably the

3 Ways Energy Protect™ Can Improve Building Energy Efficiency

Commercial buildings have multiple areas where energy can be lost without proper insulation. These include walls, skylights, and ductwork. Each area has its own challenges when it comes to insulating to reduce heat loss Walls are difficult to add traditional insulation to in a retrofit situation, especially if they’re solid brick or
