Advanced coatings solutions and energy savings for the energy and mining industry
The energy and mining industry faces many challenges and pressures regarding their equipment and environmental impacts. NEOtech Coatings have a range of solutions from corrosion prevention, heat insulation coatings and moisture management that services the diversity of challenges on site. Many of our products also come with the benefit of energy savings.
Our coatings are design help to reduce costs, improve efficiency and offer ourstanding proection to both staff and equipment for the long term.
Hot Pipe 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.

Benefits to the energy and mining industry
- Superior eco product that lessens the burden on the environment
- Reduces Corrosion Under Insulation (CUI)
- Reduces energy and maintenance costs while increasing comfort in buildings
- Insulates freezers or refrigeration units to reduce costs and product loss
- Reduces fuel consumption, equipment maintenance, down time, man hours, and product loss when applied to refrigerated trucks
- Protects goods by insulating long haul trailers designed to carry perishables
- Corrosion coatings that have passed over 15,000 hours of testing
- Reduces risk of condensation on cold water pipes
- Insulates oil and gas storage tanks to prevent evaporation and heat build-up.
- Insulates air conditioning unit outer casings to prevent reductions in efficiency from heat build up inside the housing
- Provides a fire-resistant coating for substrates. Super Therm® has a “0” fire and smoke spread and will not contribute to flame spread.
- Worldwide use of coatings from Australia to Japan, Europe to USA, Saudi Arabia to South America.
With the many and diverse mining activities in Australia SPI Coatings have provided solutions to some of the biggest mines including Moomba and Beverley Uranium mine.
A whole surface of a tank (1,000KL) in Hokko Terminal (Japan) had coated with Cool Therm (Super Therm® in Japan) in 1996, and we had recognized the beneficial effects. Therefore all of the 39 tanks in Hokko terminal (30,000KL) were coated with insulation coating.
The maximum effect is that VOC emission in the atmosphere has been reduced strongly. This is because a temperature in the tanks are kept at a low temperature constantly by full coating with Cool Therm (Super Therm®), and breathing of tanks are depressed.
Moreover, relating to cooling tanks and refrigerated storage s coated with Cool Therm (Super Therm®), the effect of freezing have risen by 20 percent. The temperature in the tanks were controlled by using electricity and water before, but it is not needed any more after coating. Cool Therm (Super Therm®) is the superior eco product which lessens the burden on the environment.
The tank coated in 1996, which were recoated with top coat only in 2009, the heat insulating effect is still continuing, and the durability is demonstrated. We are promoting insulation coating of tanks and storages as part of environmental protection > Read More
