Over the past few decades, there have been ongoing improvements in water-based coating technology, formulation, and application techniques. These coatings have evolved to be more sophisticated, providing enhanced performance characteristics, durability, and environmental benefits. As a result, water-based coatings are now commonly preferred for coating HVAC units when they meet the requirements.
Coils are where the magic happens in HVAC-R (heating, ventilation, air conditioning, and refrigeration) units. They are typically made of metal, and they either cool your space by absorbing heat from the indoor air or they produce heated air to warm up the area. This exchange is what makes your indoor temperature to your liking.
Corrosion testing on HVAC coatings can be conducted according to a number of standards, including ASTM-B117, ISO 9227, ISO 12944-6, and ISO 20340. Of these tests, the one we believe represents actual service environments most closely is ISO 12944-9 (formerly ISO 20340) vs. the more common ASTM B-117. ISO classifies
ES-600 offers high performance and spray application Manitowoc, Wis. – Heresite’s ES-600, a high-performance epoxy-silane specially designed to provide superior performance in demanding environments, has successfully me the ISO 12944-9 Cyclic Offshore Test protocol.

Many facility engineers are interested in the possibilities of using UV-C light to help prevent the spread of COVID-19. UV-C light has been shown to be a proven method controlling airborne infection. It works by destroying the outer protein coating of the SARS-Coronavirus. Right now, the effectiveness of UV-C on
Choosing the best HVAC-R protective coating for your particular environment and application is an important decision. At Heresite, our HVAC-R coating products are continually evolving to provide you with the best possible solution for your environment. Be sure you select the most appropriate solution when specifying a coating for a
Much like your favorite brand of facial tissues or fruit-flavored gelatin, the word Heresite has come to represent a type of HVAC-R coating no matter who it’s manufactured by. However, Heresite isn’t a specific coating – it’s a coating manufacturer! The confusion makes sense. Heresite was founded in 1935. That
Manitowoc, Wis. – Heresite, a leader in the development of thin film corrosion resistant coatings, has launched HereShield, a low-VOC direct to metal coating.
