In industry, we find surfaces that reach high temperatures. Thermal insulation is mainly used to ensure protection for working personnel and to reduce energy losses.
The generally accepted temperature limit for surfaces is 60°C within 5 seconds. According to ASTM C1057, at this temperature the skin begins to experience first degree burns; for this reason, all surfaces at higher temperatures within areas accessible to workers must be insulated.
Thermal insulation increases process productivity by reducing heat losses, improving plant operation and extending the life cycle of equipment.
At Aplika Control Corrosion we have insulating coatings that, in combination with a corrosion primer, provide corrosion protection and minimize corrosion under insulation (CUI).
