Sherwin-Williams launches high temperature-resistant coating

October 24, 2012

Sherwin-Williams has introduced the next generation of corrosion under insulation (CUI) coatings to the oil and gas industry, Heat-Flex Hi-Temp 1200, an immersion-grade single-component inert multipolymeric matrix coatings. Rigorous protocols based on ASTM standards, conducted at the Sherwin-Williams labs where the first CUI coating was pioneered in 1999, documented better corrosion and abrasion resistance, and increased flexibility and harder film, the company reported.

Heat-Flex Hi-Temp 1200 combines ease of application, ambient cure, surface tolerance and UV resistance in one formulation for application under calcium silicate and mineral wool insulation systems, and is recommended for use in wet/dry cyclic service at operating surface temperatures of cryogenic to 1.200 degrees F, with application temperatures from ambient to 500 degrees F.
