Coating to Insulate Hot, Cold Surfaces


Sherwin-Williams Protective & Marine Coatings group has introduced an insulative acrylic coating for industrial systems that the company says helps eliminate corrosion under insulation (CUI).

The Heat-Flex 3500 is designed for personnel protection and mitigating CUI, the company says. It allows hot systems to stay insulated and cool to the touch while helping to prevent burns. It also insulates cold surfaces and prevents condensation on them, according to the company.

Sherwin-Williams says the coating can be applied directly to ambient or hot surfaces up to 350 degrees Fahrenheit. It adds that it will also allow these systems to be removed from CUI inspection protocols.
