Conventional Failures of Blanket Insulation
Ferrous & Stainless Steel Tanks are subjected to chloride attack when insulated with conventional Blanket Insulation systems. Ceramic Insulation Coatings contains less than 20 ppms of chlorides. It is recommended that all tanks be protected with one coat. This will guard against corrosion and condensation. These coatings are impermeable to moisture migration and provide complete tank protection.
Pertinent Engineering Specifications
Flame Resistant: Ceramic Coatings conform to Class A flame spread of 25 or less, conforming to ASTM E -84.
Adhesion: Ceramic Coatings adhesion test was conducted after full cure. The product pull-tested in excess of 200 psi
Typical Tank Insulation
A Filter Weir Box in a Pulp Mill. Ceramic Coatings applied to 80 MILS for personnel protection & insulation requirements (Grande Prairie, Alberta, Canada)
Spray applied Foam Insulation & Ceramic Insulation Coatings applied to oil field tank (750 bbl) to insulate and control corrosion. (Red Eye Field , Fort St. John, British Columbia)
Ceramic Insulation Coatings System corrects a variety of tank related problems
Rust: Prevents moisture and chemical corrosion.
Lead: Safely encapsulates lead paints that are not severe enough to blast.
Resists: UV, chemical, water, wind, and sand abrasion.
Age: Resists and prevents cracking, peeling and blistering.
Ceramic Insulation Coatings System
This will cool and lower your tanks internal temperature. It will drastically reduce the opportunity for venting pollutant gases, and the coating improves the outer appearance of your tanks. The tank shown in the photo vented an average of once a day in the hot EL Paso (Texas) sun. Since the application of Ceramic Insulation Coatings this tank has not vented in over two years.
