ST. LOUIS, Jan. 21, 2014 /PRNewswire-iReach/ -- Carboline Company is pleased to announce the release of Carbotherm 551 an advanced next generation insulative coating. This water-based epoxy insulative coating has multiple uses from protecting workers from burns on hot surfaces to thermal insulation. It dramatically reduces the effects of solar radiation on operating vessels and storage tanks and reduces heat built up which can otherwise result in evaporative emissions from storage tanks containing hydrocarbon or other cargoes.
"Carbotherm 551 is superior over other water-based insulative coatings currently on the market," said Doug Moore, VP of Global Marketing at Carboline. "Being an epoxy, Carbotherm 551 has far superior physical properties than currently available acrylic-based formulations, thus providing far more durability for industrial environments. It can be applied faster and with fewer coats than acrylics which appeals to both the contractor who installs it and the owner who benefits from its thermal performance."
Carbotherm 551 can provide up to 60% energy efficiency when applied at only 4-6 mm. In a single coat, it can protect against heat caused by solar radiation for pressure vessels, hydrocarbon storage tanks, LP tanks, etc. Owners can reduce their solvent (carbon) emissions on storage tanks by keeping skin temperatures cooler.
"With the introduction of an epoxy-based formulation like Carbotherm 551 the end user benefits with superior tensile strength and adhesion properties, increased durability and longer service lives," said Dallas Finch, VP of Global Research and Development. "Unlike acrylic insulative products, the epoxy-based Carbotherm 551 features a "chemical cure" which results in a denser film with superior physical properties and chemical resistance."
In addition to the physical properties, the epoxy has superior resistance to acid or caustic fumes, splash or spills making it ideal for more industrial aggressive applications.
Carbotherm 551 is an innovative, cost-saving, durable, high performance material that helps reduce maintenance costs, protect workers and improve operating efficiency for storage tanks and vessels.

Containers are not new, but renewed commitments to performance, flexibility, and agility have propelled them to the top of the agenda today. By working without the need for virtualization and its overhead, containers are seen as the perfect way to deploy apps and services across multiple clouds. Containers can handle anything from file types to operating systems and services, including microservices. What are microservices? Unlike what the name implies, microservices are not necessarily small,...
