Perlite

Sproule WR-1200™ is a molded, high-temperature pipe & block insulation with exceptional corrosion inhibiting properties. Specifiers to the industrial processing & power generating industries recognize that stainless steel piping is highly susceptible to stress corrosion cracking at temperatures over 140°F. IIG’s intelligent insulation solution is an expanded perlite product with a binder of sodium silicate, an excellent corrosion inhibitor. Combined with a resistance to water absorption, Sproule WR-1200™ perlite effectively minimizes corrosion while providing excellent thermal insulation.

Perlite Block

Perlite Block

Sproule WR-1200™ perlite block is non-wicking and high in silicates, making it an excellent corrosion inhibitor. The molecular structure of the sodium silicate in the binder has a negative charge and, therefore, is attracted to the positive charge of the metal pipe, which it coats and protects against moisture, oxygen, chlorides and other corrosive elements. Inorganic binders will not burn out and weaken the insulation.

Block insulation is manufactured with reinforced scrim built-in beneath the outside surface to enhance structural integrity.
