Hurricane season began last weekend and the NOAA’s Climate Prediction Center forecast a 70 percent chance of 9 to 15 named storms this year. With these storms come two things that can be detrimental to your conventional insulation and jacketing system: high winds and driving rain. If the 74+ mph winds do not remove your existing jacketing and insulation altogether, there is still a chance of it creating gaps for moisture intrusion. With the average named storm total rainfall being 16 inches, saturated insulation (which severely reduces effectiveness) and impending corrosion will surely come in the aftermath.
With Mascoat’s line of thermal insulating coatings, you have a seamless application that adheres directly to the substrate or primer. While providing a thermal value and personnel protection that can be equivalent to conventional insulation, Mascoat coatings’ ability to withstand these conditions will give you ease of mind and an insulation system that will last for many years.
Even damage caused by flying debris is extremely localized when using Mascoat. The only area affected is the contact point. If there is an area needing repair, simply prep the surface and use the Mascoat Small Application Sprayer to touch up the affected area. Damaged jacketing or cladding, on the other hand, will lead to costly repairs and corrosion under insulation (CUI.)
