Mascoat Industrial-DTI is a composite ceramic insulator that’s formulated to provide thermal protection for tanks, vessels, boilers and other facility surfaces up to 375°F (190°C). This premium, multi-use product is a microscopic matrix of air-encapsulated ceramic particles, which are suspended in a high-grade acrylic binder. The coating’s high-tech formulation can be sprayed on as a combined paint and insulation system, improving equipment aesthetics while protecting substrates, safeguarding personnel and preventing corrosion
Mascoat Industrial-DTI has been tested to ASTM standards and exceeds most criteria for weatherability, adhesion, flexibility and UV resistance. Because of its proven durability and versatility, it is an ideal insulator for storage tanks, vessels, heat exchangers and transfer pipelines in a variety of industries—including paper & pulp, food & beverage, asphalt and petrochemical refining. For applications requiring more aggressive insulation, the coating can be applied in multiple layers while still allowing for full substrate viewing and easy maintenance.
Mascoat Industrial-DTI applies the common physics principles of reflectivity, conduction, emissivity and absorpstance. Its microscopic particle structure reflects a high percentage of the radiant heat gain back to the environment from which it originated. Each ceramic particle encapsulates air, thereby offering a slow path of thermal transfer. This high content of entrapped and stagnant air blocks thermal transfer very efficiently. In addition, the coating’s low emissivity allows for low heat flux. The combination of these factors allows for total thermal dissipation across the surface of the coating. The unique composition of the coating makes it extremely efficient for its thickness and prevents substrates from gaining heat, making those surfaces cooler to the touch.
