Ceramic Insulation Coatings are a unique Spray Applied Coating with Revolutionary Insulating and Protection Properties
Delta T & Protective Products introduced Ceramic Insulation Coatings, a unique spray applied coating, to the Canadian market. The term "ceramic insulation coating" is generic. It introduces a unique, revolutionary product that is used in conjunction with a variety of conventional insulation systems, or in many cases, as a stand-alone replacement product.
The ceramic insulation crystals in the hand reflect the heat from the blowtorch and protect the hand from serious burns. The picture demonstrates dramatically the isulative properties of ceramic insulation. Ceramic Insulation Coatings significantly reduces surface temperature and controls radiant heat by up to 95%.
There are numerous formulations and specifications involved including our own made in Canada CCC100 Ceramic Insulation, DTC Rust Direct , and Albi Clad fireproofing products for various applications. Contact Delta T & Protective Coatings for information relating to the products that are best suited for your specific project requirements.
A Laymans Guide to Heat Energy and Insulating
Heat is energy and has been defined through the ages by many great physics and scientists from Isaac Newton to Albert Einstein. So first we should understand the scientific Laws we will be working with. The first Law of Thermodynamics states in part, "heat is a form of energy transfer. The second rule of Thermodynamics states again in part that "heat energy will always move from hot to cold", or simply stated from a higher to a lower temperature area. It will do this to establish a state of thermal equilibrium. To understand the full complexity of these two rules you can visit Wikipedia. As an example the Second Law of Thermodynamics we might state on a cold winter day,"close the door you are letting the cold in". In actual fact the heat is moving out of the house (hot) to the outside air (cold). It wants to go out there and heat the countryside up and establish a state of equilibrium making the temperature outside the same as the inside of the house. Of course your furnace can't keep up and the heat energy just gets swallowed up by the winter weather.
A few examples of the formulations and applications performed
Ceramic coatings provide better insulation relating to radiant energy transfer than fiberglass or other conventional systems. Ceramic Insulation Coatings can be applied on a surface with temperatures up to 3600F. Shutting down operations is not required. (A white liquor tank at a Pulp Mill)
Insulative ceramic coatings provide not only a thermal barrier, but also a waterproof membrane that prevents water buildup caused from condensation between the substrate and the coatings. (Oil Field Tank Insulation)
Rusted surfaces do not require sand blasting when using DTC RUST DIRECT. The proprietary solvent and polymers are uniquely designed to penetrate and "wet" the surface. These polymers react with moisture in the air, out-gassing resin into the pores, and anchoring the coating to the surface. An incredible, durable, aluminum-reinforced urethane film is produced that is metallized, encapsulates, and regalvanizes. The more pitted and deteriorated (rusted) the substrate, the better anchoring properties the coating will exhibit. (Piping, tanks, shipping, Metal Roofs)
Breweries and Food processing industrys can benifit by using our coatings.This Pasteurizing Control Valve had Ceramic Coatings applied to 80 mils, for temperature control and personnel protection against accidental burn injury. (Labatts Brewery)
The coatings can be applied to cement, wood, metal and even plexiglas. Ceramic Coatings adhesion test conducted after full cure, pull-tested in excess of 200 psi. The coatings applied on Plexiglas skylights to control expansion and contraction (thermal shock) saved in excess of $75,000.00.
