Best of 2018


From new products to new regulations it is our goal to keep you informed about changes in the Industrial Insulation industry. This year we shared a variety of information to help you stay in the know, and we’re recapping the posts that our readers loved the most.

Here are our Top Blog Posts of 2018:


1. Insulation Properties & Their Definitions

Thermal Properties of insulation material are typically the first property thought of when selecting an insulation material. However, properties other than thermal must be considered when choosing materials for specific applications.

We have done you a favor and compiled a list of the mechanical and chemical properties also to consider when selecting an insulation material for specific applications.


2. Inspection Methods for CUI

Corrosion Under Insulation (CUI) is a real threat to many industries, and can cause failures of systems and can have a costly effect due to downtime and repairs. Unfortunately, CUI tends to remain undetected because the corrosion is hidden and hard to find under the mechanical insulation.

In this blog post, we have provided a variety of methods used today to help you inspect for CUI.


3. Chemical Processing Plants and Industrial Insulation

The chemical industry produces more than 70,000 products that, as consumers, we interact with daily. Items such as detergents, soaps, and perfumes are just a handful of examples.

In this post, we share the three categories of products from the Chemical Industry.


4. OSHA Inspection Process

While the likelihood of an OSHA inspection is low for most businesses, being aware of what happens during the inspection, and being prepared, will help you create a safer workplace.

In this blog post, we covered the three stages of an OSHA inspection.
