Three Questions to Ask When Coating Oversized HVAC-R Units or Coils

in Blog, Coatings

Coating extremely large HVAC-R units or coils can be difficult. Their size (both dimensions and weight) makes the units/coils difficult to move and many coating applicators find it difficult to thoroughly apply coatings to protect them from corrosive elements. A large HVAC-R unit/coil is clearly a big investment, which makes the need to apply protective […]

After 2.5 year exposure test, Heresite’s P-413 panels show no signs of wear

in Blog, Chemical Resistance Testing, Coatings, Uncategorized

To further expand on Heresite’s expansive chemical resistance guide, P-413 coated steel, copper, and aluminum panels were placed in a municipal wastewater treatment facility to simulate sewage fumes. Panels were placed at the point where raw sewage is pumped into the facility and screened; this results in significant hydrogen sulfide exposure, one of the harshest […]

ASTM B-117 vs. ISO 20340 – what’s the difference?

in Blog, Chemical Resistance Testing, Coatings, Uncategorized

ASTM B-117 was the first nationally recognized salt spray standard. Published in 1939, this salt spray test is widespread and often recognized as the “gold standard” in corrosion testing. However, ISO 20340 offers a more realistic and updated method of testing, representing a significant improvement over ASTM B-117. When the ASTM B-117 test is conducted, […]

Fume exposure chemical testing may not be enough for your HVAC-R equipment

in Chemical Resistance Testing, Coatings

HVAC-R coating chemical resistance is often tested using fume exposure. While this method of testing can provide information on the anticipated level of protection for HVAC-R equipment, in certain applications, spot/direct exposure tests may provide better information about your equipment’s longevity in real-world conditions. It is important to conduct spot/direct exposure chemical resistance tests because […]
