The unique properties of PSC are mainly due to a combination of thermal conductivity of 0.0324 W/m.K. + /TRS/ up to> 92% of all radiation
|Common insulating materials
|Thermal insulating properties
|It is resistant to temperature variations and stable in time regardless of air humidity. Thermal insulation performance of PCS is stable in a long-term view.
|The material quickly degrades because of humid air and so reduces the service life of the equipment under the insulation and its thermal insulation performance.
|PSC 250T is damp-proofing - as documented by respective certificate
|This material absorbs moisture from the surroundings and so cannot solve, among others, the problem of corrosion caused by the condensation
|The PSC 250T has anti-corrosion properties - as documented by respective certificate
|Cannot solve the corrosion issue
|Condensation of water
|PSC 250T can solve the condensation issue
|It cannot solve the condensation issue, possibly only in thick layers
|PSC 250T is UV stable thanks to its TSR properties /Total Solar Reflection - with reflectivity of 92% for all radiation in its entire spectrum/. Solar radiation 97%.
|Additional protection is required
|Demands from the point of view of load and occupied space
|Thanks to the thin layer of application, mainly between 1-3 mm, the surface is not significantly loaded by the application of PST and due to this thin layer much space around the treated surface is not required.
|The layer of this insulation takes up much more space and increases its weight, when it gets wet, and so it loads the surface excessively.
|Method of application
|Simple and fast application of PSC by spraying or roller. With brush in the case of smaller surfaces.
|A complex process that requires the use of several sub-components so as to complete the insulation.
|Simple identification of defects. Thanks to thin PSC layer the repair are very easy. If a repair is required, the place is cleaned with a brush. The PSC is removed and applied locally after repair completion.
|Hardly identifiable repairs. No traces of damage can be seen on the insulation surface, but there may be a serious problem with condensation, pests and moulds under insulation. The repairs are demanding and require a complex process of removing the entire insulation and subsequent ecological disposal of the material.
|As proved by the certificate, expected service life of PCS is 25-30 years
|A short service life due to the problem with moisture absorption from the environment or degradation on a very hot surface.
|Resistance against insects, rodents and molds
|Thanks to the thin PSC application layer and perfect adhesion to the treated surface, it prevents mould formation and insect movement under insulation.
|Insects and rodents can stay under the classical insulation, molds can be easily formed.
|Protection of environment
|The PSC is an environmental-friendly product that is hygienically certified and can be used in the food industry as well.
|Complicated disposal, financially demanding. Possible adverse effects on human health.
