Business Case for Sustainable Paper Manufacturing


“As the world’s largest packaging and paper company, our sustainability strategy governs everything that we do from employee safety, to relationships with our customers and communities and our impact on the environment, to how we ensure our businesses will be successful for generations to come.”

Business Roundtable (Quote from Mark S. Sutton, Chairman & CEO, International Paper)

Syneffex™ Amazing Solutions for Paper Manufacturing Sustainability

Insulate Surfaces & Prevent Corrosion Too!

Our Syneffex™ Team has walked through many paper mills that are struggling with soggy and degraded insulation that doesn’t last and is falling off pipes and tanks, only to reveal the corrosion that’s beneath. Most simple rust protectors don’t last long and can’t handle the chemical atmosphere of a pulp and paper mill, and fiberglass and mineral wool definitely don’t last long in that environment.

We engineer our products to stand up to the harshest factory environments, which is why our Heat Shield™ EPX-H2O coating has a 10-year warranty. Plus, no exterior jacketing is needed. It’s the perfect solution for sustainable pulp and paper manufacturing and can help keep you working environment cooler, safer, and more comfortable.

  1. Just Spray Our Coatings On
  2. Insulate Pipes, Tanks, Dryer Covers, and More
  3. You Save Energy & Protect Equipment from CUI!

That’s the power of nanotechnology!

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

Testing Shows Superior Performance

We don’t just expect you to take our word for it, Syneffex™ thermal insulation coatings have been tested to the most rigorous standards for chemical resistance, insulation, and corrosion using cyclical salt spray and temperature flux testing methods.

Our technology has been used and tested around the world with amazing results time and time again, both in the lab and in real world applications. Here’s what you can expect for anti-corrosion and chemical resistance:

All Syneffex™ Heat Shield™ translucent coatings:

  • Passed 24-cycles (8-cycles is minimum passing) of the GM9540P salt spray corrosion test. No rust present.
  • Passed the BP (British Petroleum Standard) for Resistance to CUI, a 100 day cyclical salt spray test. No rust, no disbondment, no flaking.

Heat Shield™ EPX-H20:

  • Passed the popular ASTM B117 Salt Spray Corrosion Test at 750 hours with an excellent rating.
  • Splash resistant to acids, bases, and fuels. It’s been tested with 98% sulfuric acid, with no damage.
