February 2017 – Jotun is setting a new standard in coatings for hydrocarbon processing facilities with the launch of Jotatemp 1000 Ceramic, an innovative coating solution that can be applied to surfaces with temperatures reaching 1000ºC. This increased tolerance (previous advanced coatings offered a maximum endurance of 650ºC) is tailor-made for an industry where a shift to higher temperature operations is helping optimise processing and productivity.
Jotun has established itself as a global leader in innovative protective coating solutions, with a specialisation in high temperature products safeguarding against corrosion under insulation (CUI) in the most demanding industrial environments. Jotatemp 1000 Ceramic offers an unrivalled tolerance range with ambient curing qualities, and market-leading durability and protection for carbon steel and exotic materials.
"The development of Jotatemp 1000 Ceramic is in direct response to the demands of the market," comments Miles Buckhurst, Jotun Global Concept Director HPI (Hydrocarbon Processing Industry). The on-shore industry is moving towards higher temperature processing, while still requiring low temperature tolerance for gas processing, and needs a coating with performance credentials to match its ambitions.
Jotatemp 1000 Ceramic is simple to apply, durable, offers industry leading corrosion, fire, heat and cold protection, and allows for maintenance without shutting down facilities. Its unique properties mean it can be applied directly to surfaces that fall anywhere within its tolerance range.
Jotatemp 1000 Ceramic has been tested for all standard industry test methods for the verification of CUI protection. It's ambient cure qualities allow for easy handling during construction phases and enhanced ambient corrosion protection.
