Heresite Coatings to Speak at 10th Annual NARSA Conference

Manitowoc, Wis. (September 20, 2019) – Heresite, a leader in the development of thin film corrosion resistant coatings, has been selected as one of 5 speakers at Hot Ideas and Cool Solutions, the 10th Annual NARSA Heavy Duty Heating and Cooling Conference to be held on October 3 – 4, 2019.

The presentation, Getting to “Real World” results for Heat Transfer Applications, will be presented by Robert Dwyer, Business Development Manager for Heresite Protective Coatings. His presentation will cover the unique issues related to protecting heat exchange equipment, including multiple metals, complex geometry of parts, and the need to maintain heat transfer properties. Next, the presentation will review the ASTM B-117 salt spray test and how salt spray hour claims have dramatically increased. Finally, the presentation will explain the lack of correlation between ASTM B-117 and a coating’s actual use in a real-world environment while sharing a more advanced and accurate testing alternative, ISO-12944-9.
