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

Maximizing Heat Transfer Rates For Over Six Decades

Since 1954, Chemax Manufacturing Corporation's Tracit® heat transfer compounds have been essential for use in industrial applications where there is a need to transfer heat from one surface to another. Typical applications include steam, hot oil, and glycol heat tracing systems. These highly conductive compounds eliminate the air voids that exist between the tracer and process pipe. Heat is then transferred far more efficiently via means of conduction. This means less energy is wasted trying to maintain desired system operating temperatures.

Chemax heat transfer compound (mastic) is easily applied to externally traced process pipes, valves, pumps, and industrial equipment. These self-curing compounds are non-corrosive and strongly bond to metal surfaces.  A single tracer line installed with heat transfer mastic will do the job of 3-5 bare tracers! Tracit® Compounds & Heat Tracing (PDF) 

Clamp-On Plates

Non-hardening heat transfer mastic is highly recommended for use on plate-type heating coils installed on tanks or vessels. The heat transfer mastic fills in the irregular surface areas of the plate coil, creating a thermal bond between the coil and tank wall. These waterproof compounds have an unlimited shelf life and can be easily removed.  Heat Transfer Mastic & Clamp-On Coils (Video)
