Intertherm 3350: A Coating to Protect the Machine & Personnel

Protective coatings are coverings applied to protect surfaces from harsh external environment. The coatings also improve the aesthetics of the surfaces such as automotives, oil & gas industry, and heavy machinery, among others. Some coatings come with special antifouling and anti-corrosion properties.

Personnel & Machine Protective Coating

Akzo Nobel’s International brand introduced Intertherm 3350, developed for a wide range of industrial environments. The innovative thin film spray-applied film coating is based upon water-borne acrylic technology. The coating is ideal for insulating vessels/ pipework and large tanks. This highly effective and buildable formulation offers effective thermal insulation and personnel protection from burn injuries. This coating comes in two colors white and gray.

Insulations offer corrosion under insulation (CUI) risks, as expanded metal guards could themselves corrode and require maintenance. Intertherm 3350 reduces exposure to CUI risk. This highly effective film insulator is applied using airless spray equipment, making it fast and easy to apply. Moreover, the coating can cover large and complex areas making it more convenient as compared to other insulation and cladding systems. The coated surfaces can easily be inspected and repaired. The coating provides a continuous film over the surface, providing the surface with excellent thermal barrier.

Vast industrial facility areas are insulated to retain the heat and to minimize energy loss. The safety of the personnel on site is of extreme importance on site. This includes protecting them from coming in contact with hot surfaces. Intertherm 3350 can be sprayed on hot surfaces of up to 350°F or 177°C. Coating the machine surfaces with Intertherm 3350 can bring down its surface temperature.

Market Overview

The protective coating market is expected to reach USD 60.3 billion by 2025; according to new reports by Grand View Research, Inc. Demand for anti-corrosion, durable coating, and thermal resistant, across end-use industries, such as oil & gas industries, automotive, and construction can spearhead the market.

Competitive Insight

AkzoNobel NV, Arkema SA, PPG Industries, and The Sherwin-Williams Co. are key players of this market. They adopt practices such as developing new products and capacity expansions to strengthen their positions in the industry globally.
