Syneffex™ Heat Shield™ coatings are an industry leading thermal insulation used by organizations around the world to increase energy efficiency, keep asphalt at the optimum heat level, and reduce hot surfaces to a safe-to-touch temperature. This powerful technology for insulation of asphalt storage tanks, tops of asphalt tanks, and transport vessels is moisture resistant and chemical resistant for durable, long-lasting performance. It’s also easily sprayed on to any size or shape of asphalt storage or delivery equipment while it’s operating. No downtime!
The technology also provides world-class corrosion and CUI prevention with an insulation, so you get multiple benefits in a single product, and don’t have to go through long or expensive multi-product application processes.
Heat Shield™ EPX-H2O asphalt thermal insulation coating insulates from 400F (204C) all the way down to safe touch.
Terminals will typically store liquid asphalt at a temperature above 250F (121C) so it doesn’t solidify. For economic reasons, they will usually store it as less than the optimum delivery temperature of 300F to 325F (149C to 163C), to lower energy costs.
It costs less to maintain the temperature of asphalt than it does to increase it.
Because it costs more in energy to heat up asphalt than it does to maintain it at the desired temperature, Syneffex™ thermal insulation coatings provide a significant benefit for companies that manufacture, store, and deliver asphalt to the job site. The coating significantly reduces heat loss – keeping the heat inside the asphalt tank, where you want it!
