New Coatings Provide Protection from High-Temperature Corrosion

Coatings and linings manufacturer Tnemec Co. Inc. (Kansas City, Missouri) introduced a new line of products built to provide durable protection for surface temperatures up to 1,200 °F (649 °C).

The Endura-Heat line of coatings offers performance against high heat, thermal shock, and corrosion under insulation.

The coatings line consists of primers, direct-to-metal (DTM) coatings, and topcoats that can be combined in a variety of systems to protect valuable steel and stainless steel surfaces from corrosion.

“This new line of Tnemec products provides additional corrosion resistance and aesthetic longevity to our long-time customers in power facilities, steel mills, water and wastewater facilities, refineries, pulp and paper and chemical processing plants,” says Chris Ard, industrial market manager.

At the time of introduction, the coatings line includes seven products, ranging from a zinc-rich silicone primer to an advanced, multi-polymeric DTM coating. The new products offer several notable characteristics, such as high-film build and both ambient and heat-cure options.

“These coatings are easily applied, versatile, and offered in a variety of standard colors with custom color matching available,” Ard says. “Using quality pigments and resins, the line is formulated to provide enhanced color-stability in exterior high-heat environments.”
