Where heat is present, heat resistant coatings remain. Metal surfaces in industrial production environments are often exposed to high temperatures and large temperature fluctuations. In order to safeguard the surface’s protective qualities, it’s highly recommended to apply a heat-resistant coating system. In this article, we would like to share with you how heat-resistant coatings are commonly used in conserving the surface of industrial furnaces while retaining a sturdy appearance.
Combustion processes in industrial installations and transfer of combustion products, such as gases and smoke, in flue-gas-ducts, often involve very high temperatures. In industrial furnaces, surface temperatures of 250ºc and higher are no exception. These conditions require special coatings with additional heat resistant properties.
“General purpose paints and coatings are barely heat-resistant. They get damaged, burnt or they peel off when exposed to excessive heat.”
Metal objects in industrial bakery lines, frying equipment, injection moulds, and various non-food processing plants are often exposed to heat, both directly and indirectly. Applying the right coating will keep the surface’s appearance intact.
It’s worthwhile considering that, for instance, industrial activities may shift or be stopped provisionally, due to production linked or seasonal factors.
Once metal surfaces cool down, condensation can form. This can lead to corrosion. To counteract this, applying a zinc-rich anti-corrosion primer underneath the topcoat will keep corrosion due to moisture accumulation at bay.
Our heat-resistant, silicon-based coatings perform at optimal functionality, regardless of enduring high temperatures or sudden drops in temperature. Our special range of Briosil coatings is specially developed for use on industrial metal surfaces and structures, including the exterior of incinerators and furnace chimneys. Temperatures up to 600ºc will not cause the coating to deteriorate, crack nor peel. Your business object remains in perfect condition.
Our Briosil range is available in the standard colours black and leafing aluminum. Other colours are available on request. Please feel free to inquire about our offers. Contact us here.
