Polysiloxane is an inorganic polymer chemistry with superior properties including temperature tolerance and UV resistance in comparison to organic type polymer chemistries. New R&D efforts in ambient cure, third generation, polysiloxane technology eliminate existing issues of post cure polysiloxane coatings, including low film hardness, anti-corrosion properties & weathering resistance prior to post curing >300 °F.
Recent R&D efforts in polysiloxane matrix spray-on insulation have resulted in ultra-high-build and higher temperature capabilities to 400 mils DFT per coat and 750 °F respectively, producing results which exceed limitations of current spray-on insulation materials.
Laboratory testing of these polysiloxane based materials confirms much higher temperature tolerances than acrylic spray-on products and insulation performance nearly equal to traditional block, batt and mat-type insulation materials.
