Based on sol-gel nanotechnology, the nC ProTherm CUI-X coating system is designed for thermal insulation, Safe Touch and combatting corrosion under insulation. CUI-X has a long lasting lifetime cycle of more than 20 years outdoors, and life-long expectancy indoors.
Because of the ability to insulate with a very thin layer of coating, nC ProTherm CUI-X offers space saving and cost reducing protection at a high degree of insulation with an U-value at 4,2 W/(m²K) at 6 mm, and a lambda (λ)-value at 0,040 W/(mK).
It provides Safe Touch surfaces and is capable of reducing surface temperatures of for instance steampipes from 160°C down to 40°C. CUI-X is hydrophobic and chemical resistant. It keeps heat and cold in place.
In order to prevent CUI (corrosion under insulation), the nC ProTherm CUI-X coating is equipped 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 withstands welding temperatures up to 1.500°C, shockloads and chemicals. This way your piping and tubing remains immune for corrosion and are set for prevention of corrosion under insulation.
The covalent bond offers a flexible protection as it will shrink and expand along with the metal 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 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 under insulation for more than 20 years.
Because the nC ProTherm CUI-X primer is resistant against welding, it will not get damaged and corrosion will not develop. CUI-X is suitable for long-term immersion in (salt) water or fluids.
nC ProTherm CUI-X is applied by roller, knife or spraygun. It shows a stucco-like, relief finish. nC ProTherm CUI-X can be applied in one layer, between 3mm up to 18 mm and is a fast drying solution. nC ProTherm CUI-X is available in all colours.
