Proven Heat-Flex™ Hi-Temp 1200 chosen for corrosion protection at Ras Tanura refinery

Heat-Flex™ Hi-Temp 1200 from Sherwin-Williams was chosen for its time-saving advantages as the proven single coating protection against corrosion and high heat for the O&G bulk valves at Saudi Aramco’s Ras Tanura refinery.


Experts from Sherwin-Williams collaborated with contractor Tecnicas Reunidas on the clean fuels and aromatics project to protect bulk valves for all process conditions and temperatures and ensure fault-free continuous operations at the facility near the industrial port city Jubail in Saudi Arabia.


Heat-Flex™ Hi-Temp 1200 is the industry’s next-generation single-component corrosion under insulation (CUI) solution for high-heat applications. It offers unrivalled corrosion resistance and enhanced durability in reducing damage from shop to field with faster shop throughput. It also provides lower Volatile Organic Compounds (VOCs).


“We were aware of the challenges associated with bulk valve packages for these projects and our R&D team came up with a versatile solution for our customer to provide the necessary level of protection with efficiencies in time and cost of using only one product,” said Emre Karapinar, Project Development Manager for Sherwin-Williams.


Independently tested and certified for use in severely corrosive environments, Heat-Flex™ Hi-Temp 1200 comes without the need of an inorganic zinc primer even when it is cured at ambient temperatures. It is approved under Saudi Aramco engineering standard SAES-H-101V / System APCS-11C as a high temperature resistant CUI coating for O&G projects in the Middle East.


Heat-Flex™ Hi-Temp 1200 can be applied direct to steel or stainless steel, as a coating under insulation, and is acceptable for use on cryogenic equipment or over properly prepared steel surfaces either insulated or uninsulated. It is ideal for power plants, refineries, chemical facilities, offshore and marine and pulp and paper industries. For more information see our brochure on the Sherwin-Williams website.
