Business Case for Sustainable Brewing & Distilling

Sustainability makes sense as key driver for multinational and regional brewers and distillers. Here’s why:

Craft brewers are an innovative segment of the greater brewing industry. It’s no surprise that many craft brewers have discovered creative solutions for energy usage and greenhouse gas (GHG) reduction at their facilities. Considering today’s rising energy costs, reducing energy usage should be a high priority at all breweries.”

Syneffex™ Amazing Solutions for Breweries and Distillery Sustainability


Save Energy, Reduce Emissions & More!

Working with breweries and distilleries to help them save energy and meet sustainability goals is something we love to do. We’ve seen firsthand some of the challenges they face with the insulation of tanks, kilns, piping, casks, boilers, and other equipment. Often it’s difficult to insulate their processes without worrying about either contamination from a fibrous insulation or moisture collection causing mold growth on surfaces. Both hot and cold processes need to be insulated effectively and cleanly.

We have two main solutions that we provide to help breweries and distilleries insulate to save energy, reduce carbon emissions and more. Our Heat Shield™ EPX-H2O is our more rugged product, chemical resistant and meant for equipment like boilers that do not need to be washed down regularly. For equipment that received a regular wash down, our Heat Shield™ High Heat coating is also easily applied and has an easy to wash smooth finish.

You can simply spray, roll, or brush on our coatings to the exterior of equipment to achieve the following sustainable brewing and distilling benefits: 

  1. Lower Energy Consumption
  2. Reduce Carbon and GHG Emissions
  3. Prevent Corrosion and CUI
  4. Reduce Heat Radiated into the Room
  5. Mold & Moisture Resistant Insulation
  6. Lower Surfaces to Safe Touch

That’s the power of Syneffex™ multipurpose insulation coatings!

Industry and Laboratory Tested

We’re proud to have helped clients like Grupo Modelo (makers of Corona beer) insulate surfaces to meet their sustainability and safety goals. Syneffex™ thermal insulation technology has been tested around the world in field studies for over a decade as well as by multiple independent laboratories with winning results!

Here are just a few of the performance highlights:

34.8% reduction in heat transfer – ISO 8990:1999 for thermal performance

Resistant to mold growth – ASTM D5590 for mold resistance

Passed 750 hours with no corrosion – ASTMB117 salt spray corrosion

Splash resistant to acids, bases, and fuels. It’s been tested with 89% sulfuric acid, with no damage. (EPX)

Passed the BP (British Petroleum Standard) for Resistance to CUI, a 100 day cyclical salt spray test. No rust, no disbondment, no flaking. (High Heat)

Plus all Syneffex™ products are non-toxic, water-based, and low VOC.

Extraordinary Protection & Durability | Long Lasting Sustainable Insulation for Breweries and Distilleries. Brilliant!
