Heatblocka from Corrocoat provides thermal insulation and corrosion protection

Posted On : Wednesday, August 29th, 2007 in News

Anti-corrosion specialists Corrocoat can now offer a practical solution to the problems of insulation and corrosion prevention with the introduction of a new product, designed to provide a cost-effective combination of thermal insulation and corrosion protection. Known as HeatBlocka and intended for both new and old equipment, the product is a durable coating for use on items such as transfer lines, requiring insulation for process reasons, or for personnel protection to safeguard against accidental burns. Other applications include tankage insulation to prevent heat build up and evaporation losses or simply loss of energy. The product may also be used as an under-insulation corrosion barrier whilst adding to the insulating properties.


Some insulation systems currently on the market provide insulation but relatively poor corrosion protection properties, whereas pure insulation materials such as fibreglass cladding solutions require addition corrosion protection under the insulation. HeatBlocka provides an excellent alternative or addition.

HeatBlocka is used at a thickness of between 2-6mm, and 3mm can be achieved in a single coat application. A 3mm thickness of HeatBlocka would reduce the surface temperature of a pipe from typically 90°C to around 67°C, whereas applied at 6mm a reduction from 90°C to circa 55°C is achieved.

The product gives good corrosion protection properties in line with Corrocoat’s established range of glass flake filled coatings, now used worldwide to protect equipment in industries as diverse as petrochemicals, oil and gas, marine and power generation.

Normally used in white, HeatBlocka can be overcoated to meet an individual plant’s colour requirements.
