Enhancing Energy Efficiency and Protection with Thermaguard™ Insulation Coatings

In the dynamic landscape of industrial infrastructure, the quest for energy efficiency, sustainability and asset protection is paramount. Wagon Paints, a trusted name in coatings and solutions, introduces a groundbreaking solution: Thermaguard™ TIC400 and TIC180 from Performance Polymers UK. These cutting-edge thermal insulation coatings offer a host of benefits that go beyond traditional methods.

The paradigm shift: closed thin and thick film multi-ceramic coatings

Insulation unaffected by moisture and airflow

The newer generation of closed thin and thick film multi-ceramic thermal insulation coatings is a game-changer. Unlike conventional insulation materials, these coatings remain impervious to moisture and airflow. This resilience ensures consistent performance, even in challenging environments.

Blocking and containing heat at the surface

At the heart of Thermaguard™ TIC400 and Thermaguard™ TIC180 lies their ability to block and contain heat at the surface. By doing so, they effectively resist heat loss or heat gain. This feature is critical in maintaining optimal operating conditions for industrial assets.

Corrosion Under Insulation (CUI) prevention

Corrosion under insulation (CUI) is a pervasive issue in various industries. Moisture infiltration through insulation layers leads to accelerated corrosion, compromising structural integrity. Thermaguard™ TIC400 and Thermaguard™ TIC180 act as a formidable barrier, dramatically reducing the risk of CUI. This translates to longer asset lifespans and minimised maintenance costs.

Efficiency and sustainability

By keeping heat at the surface, Thermaguard™ TIC400 and Thermaguard™ TIC180 insulation coatings contribute to more efficient and sustainable infrastructure. Reduced energy consumption, lower CO2 emissions and decreased operational costs are direct outcomes. Wagon Paints believes that the industry’s future hinges on smart coatings that deliver tangible results.

Employee protection

Wagon Paints prioritises employee safety. Thermaguard™ TIC400 and Thermaguard™ TIC180 provide outstanding performance and personnel protection. Their innovative formulation ensures compliance with ISO 13732-1 (SafeTouch™ properties), safeguarding personnel from accidental burns or exposure to extreme temperatures.

Product Spotlight: Thermaguard™ TIC 400

Thermaguard™ TIC 400 is a water-based, single-component, third-generation inorganic polysiloxane ceramic filled insulative coating

  • Water based, single component, ambient curing film
