nC Thermal insulation

nC ProTherm is a range of thermal insulating coatings that chemically bond to the surface. In addition to its insulating properties, nC ProTherm is anti-corrosive, fire-resistant and sound-absorbing and can be applied easily and quickly without primer by brush or spray. The surface does not need to be cooled, so application is possible while the machines are running at full speed. nC ProTherm has been developed in such a way that the same insulating value as traditional insulation materials can be achieved with a small layer thickness. Read more about the applications of nC ProTherm in the maritime sector and view recent projects.

Applications

See the various applications of nC ProTherm coatings in the maritime industry:

Pipes
Tanks
Ship’s house & sleeping quarters
Engine Room
Deck & Hull
Shutters

Pipes

Insulating (pipe) piping with sprayable insulation provides both thermal insulation and protection against burns. nC ProTherm has a high insulation value (Lambda 0.0222) at layer thicknesses ranging from 3mm to 15mm. In addition, being able to apply quickly, good visual inspection of the condition of the pipes under the insulation and the ability to repair quickly (after fitting a new valve or meter) are important advantages for our clients. Read more in the projects below.

Tanks

The outer sides of fuel tanks but also product tanks can be insulated excellently with nC ProTherm insulating coatings. This saves a lot of energy if the tank contents need to be heated. In addition to thermal insulation, nC ProTherm also offers fire-resistant properties. Read more about the (thermal) insulation of tanks in the project below.

Ship’s house & sleeping quarters

nC Protherm coatings offer solutions for thermal insulation, fire protection, soundproofing and condensation. The products adhere directly without primer to various materials. As a result, you can easily apply the benefits of thermal insulation or soundproofing coating on board, among other things. Read more about it in the project below.

PROJECTS:

Engine Room

With our nC ProTherm solutions, the engine room can be thermally and acoustically insulated as well as made heat or fire resistant. Even hot surfaces, such as steam pipes, outlets or water pipes, become safe to touch by using our specially developed Safe Touch variant with a layer thickness of up to 5mm, thus preventing burns or material melting. Read more in the project report below.

PROJECTS:

Deck & Hull

Condensation on board is often an annoyance. It can lead to mold in the home or cargo area. Our specially developed Condensation-X can prevent this with only 2 mm layer thickness. Should you require other properties in addition to anti-condensation action, such as soundproofing or fire resistance, for example, we will be happy to advise you on the right ProTherm variant.

PROJECTS:

Shutters

Temperature differences between cargo and ship cause condensation. This can create rust spots that allow rusty water to drip onto the load. With a combination of nC Corrosion Passivator and nC ProTherm, this is well solved. The highly anti-corrosive, highly adhesive and flexible nC Protherm coating protects your hatches and cargo from the effects of condensation. Read how below.
