nC® ProTherm FIRE-X thermal insulating coating
Based on covalent bonding nanotechnology, the nC ProTherm Fire-X coating system is designed for thermal insulation, IR-reflection and corrosion passivation. Fire-X has a long lasting lifetime cycle of more than 15 years outdoors, and life-long expectancy indoors.
Because of the ability to insulate with a very thin layer of coating, nC ProTherm CUI-HTF offers space saving and cost reducing protection at a high degree of insulation with a thermal conductivity value (λ)-value λ10 mW/(mK) = 56 and a thermal resistance (R) value of R10 m2K/W 0.2409 at 10 mm.
It provides Safe Touch surfaces to panels, walls and all kinds of separators and is capable of reducing surface temperatures at Delta T-values varying between 80°C up to 260°C. Because nC ProTherm Fire-X is fire retardant, it can withstand temperatures up to 900°C for 12 hours without deterioration. nC Fire-X is hydrophobic and chemical resistant. It keeps heat and cold in place.
In order to prevent CUI (Corrosion Under Insulation), you can order the nC ProTherm Fire-X coating with a corrosion passivating primer. The primer surpasses any corrosion protection coating available as it is based on surface bonding nanotechnology (sol-gel). The system will prevent metals from corroding. It will stop already present corrosion.
Both new or blasted metals, as well as already corroded metals (ferro or non-ferro) benefit from this treatment, without the need for chipping or blasting beforehand. This makes it a very fast, cost-effective and environment friendly solution. Because of the chemical bonding, the primer can withstand welding temperatures up to 1.300°C, shockloads and chemicals.
This covalent bond offers a flexible protection for both nC Fire-X as well as the nC primer. It will shrink and expand along with the substrate material during ambient temperature changes. This way the coating will not crack, as mechanically adhered coatings do. The layer itself offers the look-and-feel of a hard-coat. Both wall or panel, as well as the metal and coating are now immune for elevated temperatures, salt, water, chemicals or oxygen. As the cold alloy primer bonds with the metal, it builds a matrix inside the metal surface and withstands abrasion as never seen before. The primer will protect metals against corrosion for more than 15 years.
nC ProTherm Fire-X is applied by spraygun. It shows a stucco-like finish. nC ProTherm Fire-X can be applied in one layer, between 6mm up to 12 mm and is a fast drying solution. nC ProTherm Fire-X can be painted over, and is available in all colours when ordered in quantities over 140kg.
