MASCOAT® Thermal, Sound Control and Anti-condensation Insulating Coatings
THERMAL INSULATION AND ANTI-CONDENSATION FOR MARINE VESSELS
Offering superior protection for the harsh marine environment, MASCOAT MARINE is a composite ceramic coating designed for thermal insulation, condensation protection and improved vessel longevity.
MASCOAT MARINE has provided thermal insulation and anti-condensation protection on vessels in waters ranging from arctic to subtropical. Typically applied to 40 ml (1.0mm), this coating provides similar insulating capabilities to 50mm of a thermal blanket with an R11 value*.
For the past ten years, since development, MASCOAT MARINE'S multiple-purpose coating has been solving painting and insulating problems for marine vessels and is now regarded as the premiere way to reduce condensation and insulate all types of marine vessels, such as yachts, workboats, barges and military craft.
Applications: Applied by airless sprayer, brush, or roll method, MASCOAT MARINE can be a very cost-effective way to insulate the shell, stiffeners, and overheads for thermal and anti-condensation control. The coating can be sprayed in a fraction of the normal pin and blanket insulation installation time, thereby expediting the vessel's construction time frame.
MASCOAT MARINE - composite ceramic marine insulating coating
specifically designed for thermal insulation and anti-condensation protection for the harsh marine environment.
MASCOAT MARINE has been a well-proven means of insulation and protection in variety of unforgiving atmospheres. The product has been tested to ASTM standards and exceeds most criteria for weather-ability, adhesion, flexibility, and UV resistance. Its bead-structure composition will perform for the life of the vessel.
Applied like paint, MASCOAT MARINE provides dramatic temperature differentials for its thickness. The coating is comprised of a microscopic match-formulated matrix of air-encapsulated ceramic particles held in suspension by a high-grade acrylic binder. It applies like paint and is maintenance-free, providing thermal insulating and anti-condensation capabilities for shipboard construction.
The product is VOC-friendly, non-toxic, non-combustible, and water-based.
Most often, MASCOAT MARINE is used instead of, or as an enhancement to, conventional pin and blanket insulation in both new and refurbished vessels. In addition to working on sidewalls, overheads, and stiffeners, it works on tanks or anything else that needs insulation combined with anti-corrosion and anti-sweat protection.
The coating is normally applied from 20 to 60 mls (0.50 to 1.50 mm) depending on vessel usage. Peak temperature swings are radically reduced, which keeps environments more pleasant.
As a by-product, MASCOAT MARINE also contributes to decreased sound levels inside the vessel and provides an excellent vapour barrier, increasing the intensity of substrate protection and eliminating, or at the very least strongly reducing, sweating caused by condensation.
MASCOAT MARINE has been used on areas that need either radiant heat protection or thermal protection for energy radiant heat protection or thermal protection for energy efficiency and protection of personnel. The coating can be built up with repetitive applications, providing increased insulation.
Unlike other insulation methods MASCOAT MARINE bonds directly to the substrate or primer, leaving no room for corrosion to take hold. Direct bonding gives the coating the ability to insulate your vessel without degradation of the substrate for many years to come.
Users of MASCOAT MARINE have found that the coating replaces most conventional insulation methods. While yielding the same insulation capabilities, installing costing drastically less. Many vessel owners have saved up to 50% on total installed costs over conventional insulation. Best of all, the coating is extremely lightweight. This allows easy application around difficult areas such as stiffeners and other tight areas without adding excess weight.
An added benefit is the sound reduction of airborne structural noise. By using MASCOAT MARINE your vessel automatically becomes quieter by reducing structural noise from 50-80%. Our product is capable of a 1-3 dB drop in airborne structural noise or a 28 SRC factor
