Successful application of CORUND insulation on the site in the suburbs of Stockholm (Sweden)
Ultrathin liquid ceramic heat insulating materials are gaining widespread acceptance in the European countries. One of the preferred applications of such thermal insulators is industrial and civil construction.
We all know how demanding, suspicious and cautious the experienced customers from Northern Europe are towards to a new product (especially to a product made in Russia)! However heat insulating materials of KORUND series have proven to be remarkably effective.
In December 2016 a two-storey industrial hangar of 60 х 40 meters (an industrial building made of sandwich panels typical for the modern Europe) was put into operation in Kungsängen, the town in the suburbs of Stockholm (Sweden). The following targets were set for COLOTERM specialists (official distributor of NPO FULLEREN LLC in Sweden, Director Vladimir Goussakov): ensure heat insulation of the heating and water supply systems to reduce energy loses, and prevent condensation on the cool water pipeline. The pipeline has diameters of 54 mm, 35 mm and 22 mm with total length of approximately one kilometer. The pipeline, pipe connections and fittings are made of copper and galvanized steel. COLOTERM engineers use KORUND materials (CLASSIC modification) for the system insulation. Thickness of coating is 2 mm, application method is painting brush and paint mitt. Crucial pre-requisite of such engineering solution is inability to use conventional thermal insulators since the pipes are located in close vicinity to the walls and ceiling as shown in the design drawing which makes it impossible to use any other (“thick”) insulators.
The photos attached demonstrate the results of the insulating material application. One of the photos shows just one coated segment of the pipe for illustrative purposes. Electronic dials display the temperature difference between the coated and uncoated surface which is 33°C! During full water cycle in the heating pipes of the building (total water route is 700 meters) water temperature decreases only 4-50°С thanks to thermal insulation. Besides, the use of such thermal insulation is effective for preventing condensation on the cool water piping.
We would like to give our thanks to COLOTERM specialists for high quality workmanship and professionalism as well as for sharing the successful experience in the usage of KORUND thermal insulation in northern European climatic conditions!
KORUND trademark is well-known in Russia and abroad for its top-quality products. However, such popularity has a reverse side; it has come to our knowledge that some unscrupulous manufacturers use the KORUND name for their products which look similar but fail to provide the same high quality. To protect our customers from frauds, our company introduced special holograms with serial numbers on 1 January 2013.
PROTECTIVE HOLOGRAM SECURES AUTHENTICITY OF THE KORUND MATERIAL
HOLOGRAM guarantees that the product has been manufactured at the authorized facility of NPO FULLEREN LLC, NPO SILICIUM and is an original KORUND product.
Hologram is located at the front label of a bucket on the bottom left above the product bar-code. If such hologram fails to appear on the purchased bucket, it means that the product was manufactured at the unauthorized facility and may be a fraud.
