A Leading Manufacturer of Heat Transfer Compound (Mastic) for Over 62 Years

For over six decades, Chemax Manufacturing Corporation's Tracit® heat transfer compounds have been essential for use on steam, electric, and fluid heat tracing systems looking to maximize heat transfer rates. These putty-like compounds are recommended for use wherever there is a need to transfer heat from one surface to another.

These compounds are easily applied to steam or electrical tracings on pipes, valves, pumps, and industrial equipment. These hardening heat transfer compounds work by eliminating the air voids that exist between the tracer and process pipe. A single tracer line installed with heat transfer compound will do the job of 3-4 bare tracers! Tracit® Compounds & Heat Tracing (PDF)

Chemax non-hardening (NH) heat transfer mastic is used primarily on externally heated and cooled tanks. These compounds are installed between the clamp-on (plate) coil and tank wall. These waterproof heat transfer mastics have an unlimited shelf life. Heat Transfer Mastic & Clamp-On Coils (Video)
