Under Insulation Corrosion Problems Under insulation corrosion is a multi billion dollar problem every year for the chemical and petroleum industry. Fiberglass and Mineral Wool insulation contain approximately 1500 ppm of chlorides in their chemical make up. Chlorides mixed with moisture due to condensation, weather or poor installation creates a corrosive mixture that aggressively attacks both carbon steel and stainless steel. Conventional insulation that contains moisture also runs the risk of microbial contamination and indoor air quality problems. Conventional insulation will allow moisture to collect on the surface of the substrate due to environmental conditions. Ceramic Cover 100 if environmental conditions cause moisture to form it forms on the CC-100 not on the metal surface thus eliminating corrosion.

Lexington Legends Ball Park – Makers Mark Grill & Bar 20 mils of CC-100 on precast concrete for insulation value
Owner wanted to use bar & grill all year around, but had trouble heating the area during the winter months. CC-100 solved their problems
CC-100 was top coated with latex green interior paint to match customer interior
Prefabrication Made Easy Prefabrication of duct work in sheet metal fabricators shop then delivered to job and installed. Install CC-100 to rotary dryer in shop then shipped by rail to Mexico. Install CC-100 to skid work in mechanical contractors shop for shipment to jobsite and installation.
Ease of application and durability of CC-100 allow for work to be prefabricated and installed later saving valuable time.
