Heat Stack Painting
Blowing off steam is a helpful practice for any business owner, but it’s also a necessary one for your facility’s different stacks. Whether you have high stacks, flare stacks, smokestacks or incinerator stacks, they hold a vital role in many industries.
These structural features require frequent inspections and maintenance due to the heightened stress they encounter, and that includes various coatings. Penncoat will gladly handle your industrial heat stack painting requests, and we’ll produce results that few other contractors can match.

Find Heat Stack Painting Services That Handle the Circumstances
Various stacks will see temperatures that run from a typical 70 degrees to a scorching 2000 degrees. You’ll need special paint for applications that frequently perform near the higher end of the threshold, and we’re prepared to handle that obstacle.
High-temperature coatings usually feature ground mica, as the additive has proven to reduce chalking and ambering, as well as resist weathering, shrinking, moisture and other factors. It also increases color retention and adhesion, which can prove precious when heat stack painting usually lasts for a shorter amount of time than other coating jobs.
Our inflammable coatings will meet the necessary legal requirements, too. Depending on the temperature ranges, the layers can be epoxies, epoxy-novolac or epoxy-phenolic, silicone or other multi-polymeric compounds. We’ll carefully analyze your circumstances to determine the best course of action.
Of course, your stacks will require more than heatproofing. Repeated exposure to various environmental factors can cause hairline cracks in the stack’s substrate, so we’ll implement methods that also improve the following:
- Waterproofing: From acid rain to acid condensation, we can produce high-performance coatings that shield the interior of your stacks and pipes.
- Sunlight Resistance: High temperatures build up naturally from within, but sunlight can increase temperatures from the outside. Also, high UV exposure will contribute to the fading and chalking of your paint job, which might wear down safety markings, as well. You can commission light-reflecting coatings to increase solar durability.
- Corrosion Resistance: Depending on the material, rust and cracks can quickly damage a stack’s overall integrity. You can lessen the effects of these stressors with coatings that form tight seals, keeping moisture, chemicals and salt away from sensitive substrates.
