COATINGSPRO JULY 2017 61 New Coatings for High-Temperature Corrosion Protection Tnemec Co. introduced a line of products built to provide durable protection for surface temperatures up to 1,200 °F (648.9 °C). e innovative Endura-Heat line of coatings offers performance against high heat, thermal shock, and corrosion under insula- tion (CUI). ese coatings consist of primers, DTM coatings, and topcoats that can be combined in a variety of systems to protect valuable steel and stainless steel (SS) surfaces from the threats of corrosion. e line consists of seven products, ranging from a zinc-rich silicone primer to an advanced multi-polymeric DTM coating. e new products, which debuted at the CORROSION 2017 conference, offer characteristics including high-film build and both ambient- and heat-cure options. For more information, contact: Tnemec, (800) 863-6321, High-Efficiency Airless Tip to Spray Coatings e new TR1 High Efficiency Airless (HEA) tip from Titan Tool sprays coatings at 1,000 psi (6.9 MPa) with 55 percent less overspray at similar flow and production levels to standard airless tips. Operating at lower pressures doubles tip life and decreases sprayer wear. e tip features low pressure technology that can save ~35 percent in paint consumption while delivering more operator control. It provides a softer fan pattern and produces feathered edges for a more consistent finish when overlapping spray patterns. And when operating at low pressures, the pump does not work as hard, and the sprayer will spray more gallons before repacking is needed. e tip is now available at professional equipment retailers.

Nonetheless, it can be a huge burden for instrument ow ners to manage multiple certifications and ser vice demands. With that in mind, KTA-Tator, Inc. is offering a free program to help manage this responsi- bility. T he system works by attaching a bar code to each piece of a customer's equipment. T hen, two months before the equipment is due for ser vicing, the ow ner is notified of upcoming needs via letter, e-mail, or phone call. To enroll in this program, users do not need to have purchased equipment through KTA .

For the project, Dow partnered with a single-source equipment provider, Titan, to develop the Helix LP, a custom piece of equipment specifi- cally designed to spray the FROTH-PAK ULTR A formulation. e HELIX LP's unique patent-pending design automat- ically regulates pressure and ratio to ensure a consistent, high-quality spray output. Specifically designed to spray a low-pressure formulation, the HELIX LP enriches contractors with enhanced quality and productivity while provid- ing safety benefits that low-pressure systems can offer. For more informa- tion, contact: Dow, (866) 583-2583, Extra Vapor Protection Added to Corrosion-Inhibiting Coating Cortec's VpCI-368 coating is now more powerful with extra vapor-phase corro- sion inhibitors (VpCI). e coating protects metal substrates exposed to harsh outdoor conditions, including the mothballing and layup of equip- ment, protection of shipments, and preservation of spares. e coating can be sprayed or brush applied and works in complex, sealed spaces where a greater concentration of vapor inhib- itor is beneficial. An extra dose of the VpCI vaporizes from the coating, fills the enclosed space, and absorbs. is is helpful on applications such as pipe internals where it is challenging to cover all substrates. e coating is UV resistant and passes up to 1,500 hours of ASTM B117 salt spray testing, applied at 2‒3 mils (50.8‒76.2 microns) on carbon steel.
