The annual global cost of corrosion is $2.5 trillion, equivalent to roughly 3.4% of the world’s gross domestic product, according to a study by NACE International. Implementing corrosion prevention best practices could result in global savings of 15-35% of that cost, or $375-$875 billion.
Our Team has walked through many factories that are struggling with soggy insulation wraps falling off pipes and tanks, only to reveal the corrosion that the old insulation has caused. Most simple rust protectors don’t last long, and can’t stop the corrosion under insulation caused by older wrap style insulation. Synavax™ coatings solve the issue of corrosion under insulation (CUI)

Pipe Insulation & Steam Pipe Insulation Case Studies | They Could’ve Chosen Anyone. They Chose Us!
For over a decade, Synavax™ has served the industrial insulation, energy saving, and asset protection needs of multiple industries around the world, including pulp and paper manufacturing, food and beverage manufacturing, chemical manufacturing, oil and gas, textile manufacturing and many others.
Our pipe 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, black liquor tanks in pulp and paper mills like those of Weyerhaeuser, 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 asset protection benefits.
When you buy pipe insulation most people think they need to use a pipe insulation thickness chart, but not with Synavax™ thin film for insulation of pipes. It beats all other pipe insulation types in longevity and durability – lasting 5 – 10 years or more and stands up to the humid and harsh environments with out degrading or losing performance. You don’t need to measure 10 mils pipe wrap tape or 3m pipe wrap tape because no tape or cladding are needed to keep this liquid commercial pipe insulation wrap in place, you just spray it on… Easy and effective!
Most people understand the energy saving benefits of steam pipe insulation coatings pretty clearly. They are sprayed onto steam pipes, boilers, tanks and other surfaces to reduce heat loss and save energy. For example, Heat Shield™ EPX-H2O by Synavax™ can lower surface temperatures dramatically, over 100 degrees Fahrenheit with just two thin coats, and has been demonstrated to reduce the surface temperature from 393F to 231F, a 162F difference, with just 6-coats.
But there is another huge savings opportunity that’s not always as evident… Pinhole Leaks Can Cost More Than You Know! When a pinhole leak happens beneath traditional fiberglass steam pipe insulation or mineral wool with cladding, it can take days, weeks or more before it is noticed. Being hidden under this older insulation system means that the leak can remain undetected as the steam saturates the surrounding insulation, growing larger until finally discovered, then the whole insulation system has to be taken off and replaced while you try to find and repair it.
With Heat Shield™ EPX-H2O or Heat Shield™ High Heat the insulation doubles as an anticorrosive, so the coatings prevent the corrosion in the first place. In the unlikely event that there is a pinhole leak in the future, the whole steam pipe insulation system doesn’t have to be taken off and replaced. The steam will penetrate through the coating at the exact location of the leak and you can simply sand, grind or use a chemical remover on approximately a 3” to 4” circle around the leak, repair the leak, then just coat back over it when finished. Much easier and less costly.
How much are those pinhole corrosion leaks costing you? According to the U.S. Department of Energy, a leak that is just 1/4” could cost you $1,630 per month. (see chart)
Heat Shield™ EPX–H2O is our #1 high temperature industrial protective pipe insulation coating. It is proven to solve the most difficult energy efficiency, corrosion, CUI, and safe touch problems with piping and pipelines of factories and industries. Using Synavax™ technology as a liquid pipe insulation wrap gives you peace of mind for 10-years or more knowing your pipes and pipelines 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.
