HPC™ Coating.

HPC Coating

Get "high" heat protection that surpasses conventional insulation with HPC™ Coating. HPC™ Coating is a ceramic based, water-borne insulating coating designed to insulate in high temperature situations. Use HPC™ Coating as a base coat/primer or build layers for additional protection.

This insulation method is much different than the traditional “wrap” insulation materials that only slow down the loss of heat (known as an R-rating or “heat transfer”). The eight ceramic compounds create a barrier to catch and hold heat on the surface of the unit, e.g. pipe, furnace surface, boiler, etc. Unlike wraps that use air as the insulation component, the ceramic compounds in HPC™ Coating resist absorbing heat trying to come off the surface to escape. This traps and holds the heat onto the surface for more effective insulation performance. Additional benefits of HPC™ Coating include:

  • Easy to Apply – Apply directly to hot pipes while operating. Spray with hopper guy or Graco 1500 TexSpray. Apply thin coats first, and after surface reduces heat level, thicker coats can be applied.
  • Increased Insulation – Additional coats immediately reduce surface temperature and loss of heat. One inch over a 900 degree F (478 C) pipe allowed someone to touch the surface at 60 C.*
  • Long Lasting – Does not absorb humidity or lose insulation value with overcoat of Super Therm®.
  • Safe – Non-flammable and non-toxic.
  • Coverage – Can be sprayed to fit over any configuration or shape.

* This was in Siberia in the winter with the ambient temperature at -30 degrees C. In normal circumstances, we have to apply a minimum of 50mm (2”) of HPC™ to contain the heat and prevent the char of the resins from reaching the exterior side of the coating. All hot pipes are analyzed using engineering formulas to determine the thickness of coating to use for the ambient temperatures and size of the pipes or vessel.

Anti-Graffiti

Fighting graffiti is an expensive battle, and it can cause permanent damage to properties. SP Super Cleaner/Graffiti Cleaner and Enamo Grip SAS create an effective, cost-efficient solution to graffiti problems.

Chemical Protection

Without the proper protection against harmful acids or chemicals, your surface will deteriorate quickly, resulting in otherwise preventable costs and repairs.

Concrete Protection

The protection of concrete from wear and corrosion is difficult, but not with SPI coating products.

Condensation

SPI coating products are designed to resist condensation, moisture, mildew and mold. Epoxotherm and Moist Metal Grip can be applied to damp surfaces without compromising their effectiveness.

Energy Savings

With the rising costs of doing business, energy efficiency has never been more important. Coatings from Superior Products International II, Inc., block heat transfer and outperform fiberglass insulation, especially in wet or small spaces.

Fireproofing

Get fireproofing that you can count on with SPI products that have been tested over a range of materials and conditions.

Floor Protection

Wear and tear on flooring is dangerous and expensive. The SPI coating products can easily combine with anti-slip elements to provide traction for steel and concrete floors.

Fuel Cost on Reefers

According to Land Line Magazine: The Business Magazine for Professional Truckers, Super Therm® can create sizable savings in energy and fueling costs.

Heat Reduction

High heat can be dangerous for people, livestock, and equipment. So protect your buildings with heat-reducing coatings.

Insulation

Experience the future of insulation.

LEED Program

Products have been tested and approved “Green” by the MBDC group for Cradle to Cradle system.

Metal Rusting & Corrosion

An updated solution to an age-old problem.

Roof Protection

Damage to a roof can lead to leaks, loss of heat and critical damage to the rest of a building.

Underwater Protection

Protect and insulate underwater with SPI coatings.
