Business Case for Sustainable Textile Manufacturing
“The need of energy conservation has assumed paramount importance due to the rapid growth of process industries causing substantial energy consumptions in textile operations. Thus, there is a necessity for replacing the conventional methods by the latest processes which will lead to considerable savings in terms of energy, money and time.”
We know it’s a challenge to insulate in humid dye houses and textile mills with older forms of insulation. Most textile facilities can’t use fiberglass or rockwool to insulate dyeing machines, steam pipes, boilers, or other equipment because it just won’t stand up to the humid environment and causes more problems, like corrosion under insulation (CUI).
This is why the textile industry was one of the first over a decade ago to adopt our patented line of thermal insulation coatings as a standard. Textile manufacturers around the world continue require their machines be insulated with Synavax™ Heat Shield™ EPX-H2O, and our coatings are even used by the makers of textile equipment to insulate their machines before shipping them to their customers. The reasons are simple:
Easy Spray-On Technology Fits Anywhere
Cools Surfaces and Reduces Heat Escape
Improves Energy Efficiency Significantly
Performs Consistently in All Environments for 10-years+
That’s the power of nanotechnology!
That’s the power of Synavax™ chemical resistant insulation coatings!
Testing Shows Superior Performance
Synavax™ thermal insulation coatings have been tested to the most rigorous insulation, chemical, and 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.
Insulating performance that surpasses other insulation in hot and humid environments. (ASTM/ISO/Factory)
Heat Shield™ EPX-H20:
Passed the popular ASTM B117 Salt Spray Corrosion Test at 750 hours with an Excellent rating.
Splash resistant to acids, bases, and fuels. It’s been tested with 89% sulfuric acid, with no damage.
Insulating performance that surpasses other insulation in hot and humid environments.(ASTM/ISO/Factory)
One of our largest textile clients did a 38 factory/28 country global sustainability project insulating their yarn dyeing machines with Heat Shield™ EPX-H2O coating to lower energy costs by well over 10% and reduce their global carbon footprint by over 2% worldwide, plus they improved employee safety. Their payback was in less than 1-year.
Extraordinary Energy Saving | Best Insulation Coating for the Textile Industry that Also Prevents Corrosion. Brilliant!
Synavax™ Insulation and Corrosion Prevention Coatings
Our patented Heat Shield™ EPX-H2O coating is the top choice for textile insulation applications around the world. It has solved the century old problem of corrosion under insulation (CUI) by both insulating and preventing corrosion with a single product. Our coatings also have been proven to improve the color consistency of dye lots because they keep the heat inside the dyeing tank there it belongs.
Our insulation coatings are engineered to stand up to the harshest and most humid, so you know that your assets will be insulated and protected from CUI with a solution that will last for years to come. They also greatly improve employee health and safety both by making the working environment more comfortable and cooling surfaces to a safe touch level. We’ve got you covered!
