Corrosion under the Insulation


Corrosion of steel occurs when steel is in direct contact with water and oxygen.

In most atmospheric applications, corrosion occurs at a high rate. The strongest corrosion under insulation takes place in a temperature range between 50 and 180 °C. A protective barrier in the form of a coating system significantly extends the life of exposed piping, vessels and equipment. The high-temperature resistant coating Remosil Titanium CUI consists of special silicone resins and withstands temperatures of up to 600 °C. Processing on hot substrates up to 100 °C is possible.
