Get “high” heat protection that surpasses conventional insulation with HPC® Coating. HPC® Coating is a ceramic based, water-borne insulating coating designed to insulate in high temperature situations. Use HPC® Coating as a base coat/primer or build layers for additional protection.
HPC® Coating – single component water-based coating designed to insulate hot pipes or surfaces that load up to 260°C (500°F). The coating is not a reflective coating, but works to block the loading of higher heats and to resist the transfer of heat through the coating to the cooler side.
Holds heat in the surface in which it covers. Always ask what the temperature inside the unit is and not the heat on the surface. Once coated, the surface will be equal to the interior temperature which could be 93-148°C (200-300°F) higher than what is registering on the exterior. Learn More SPI >
Video above shows HPC® Coating being applied in 2011 at Gazprom (Russia’s largest LPG Energy supplier to Europe) and shows a 550°C hot pipe insulated down to less than 40°C in just minutes…all without a shutdown or hot permit. Manufactured by Superior Products International (SPI), Hot Pipe Coating (HPC) is available from NEOtech Coatings Australia.
This insulation method is much different than the traditional “wrap” insulation materials that only slow down the loss of heat (known as an R-rating or “heat transfer”). The eight ceramic compounds create a barrier to catch and hold heat on the surface of the unit, e.g. pipe, furnace surface, boiler, etc.
Unlike wraps that use air as the insulation component, the ceramic compounds in HPC® Coating resist absorbing heat trying to come off the surface to escape. This traps and holds the heat onto the surface for more effective insulation performance.
HPC® Coating test
A test on a heating pipe showing the powerful properties of ceramic insulation technology. Part of the pipe is painted with our Superior Products ceramic coating to show the comparison of the thin insulative film. Footage shows pipe reducing from 232°C (450°F) to 35°C (95°F) during application.
Additional benefits of HPC® Coating include:
Easy to Apply: Apply directly to hot pipes while operating. Spray with hopper guy or Graco 1500 TexSpray. Apply thin coats first, and after surface reduces heat level, thicker coats can be applied.
Increased Insulation: Additional coats immediately reduce surface temperature and loss of heat. 25mm (1 inch) over a 478°C (900°F) pipe allowed someone to touch the surface at 60°C.*
Long Lasting: Does not absorb humidity or lose insulation value with overcoat of Super Therm®.
Safe: Non-flammable and non-toxic.
Coverage: Can be sprayed to fit over any configuration or shape.
