The Influence of Insulation Materials on Corrosion Under Insulation (CUI)

As a designer of industrial equipment and piping, you have three weapons in the fight against corrosion under insulation (CUI):

  • A high quality, immersion grade coating
  • A properly designed and installed weather barrier jacketing
  • Your choice of insulation material

It’s the third option that is arguably the least understood element of defense against CUI, but one that can have a great impact (both good and bad).
