CATEGORY I: HARDENING HEAT TRANSFER COMPOUNDS

Chemax hardening heat transfer compounds (cement/mastic) were designed for use on externally traced systems for freeze protection and process temperature maintenance. TRACIT hardening compounds create a thermal bond between heat tracing (steam, electric, and fluid) and process pipes, valves, and industrial equipment. Also recommended for use inside heating jackets to maximize heat transfer rates.

Chemax hardening compounds are self-curing and easily installed using a hand trowel or caulking gun. 

TRACIT-300

Hardening heat transfer compound for use on steam tracers and heating jackets.

  • Hardens when cured
  • Water-soluble for easy removal
  • Excellent bonding strength
  • Temperature Limit: 750°F (400°C)
  • Stock container sizes: 10 or 32 oz. caulk gun cartridges, 5-gallon, 1-gallon, quart, and pint cans. 

Technical Specifications & Installation Instructions

TRACIT-600A

High-temperature heat transfer compound. Typically used with electric tracing.

  • Hardens when cured
  • Water-soluble for easy removal
  • Excellent bonding strength
  • Temperature Limit: 1250°F (675°C)
  • Stock container sizes: 10 or 32 oz. caulk gun cartridges, 5-gallon, 1-gallon, quart, and pint cans.

CATEGORY II: NON-HARDENING HEAT TRANSFER COMPOUNDS

Designed for use on externally heated or cooled tanks and vessels. These compounds eliminate air voids and create a highly conductive bond between the coil and tank wall. TRACIT heat transfer compounds increase plate coil heat transfer rates by over 100%. 

Chemax non-hardening heat transfer mastic stays pliable, allowing for easy installation and removal. These compounds are waterproof and will maintain excellent surface contact during expansion and contraction cycles.   

TRACIT-1100

Recommended for heating applications.

  • Insoluble in water
  • Unlimited shelf life
  • Temperature Limit: 450°F (232°C)
  • Stock container sizes: 10 or 32 oz. caulk gun cartridges, 5-gallon, 1-gallon, quart, and pint cans. Also available in 55-gallon drums for pumping applications.

TRACIT-1000

 Recommended for cooling applications.

  • Insoluble in water
  • Unlimited shelf life
  • Temperature Limit: 300°F (150°C)
  • Stock container sizes: 10 or 32 oz. caulk gun cartridges, 5-gallon, 1-gallon, quart, and pint cans. Also available in 55-gallon drums for pumping applications.

INSTALLATION ACCESSORIES

CC CHANNELS

Quality metal channels fabricated to convenient 4-foot (1.22 m) lengths. Available in galvanized or stainless steel. Strongly recommended for use with TRACIT hardening mastic.

Three sizes available to fit most size tracers: 3/8" O.D., 1/2" O.D., and 3/4" O.D.

  • Eliminates curing and weather protection requirements for hardening heat transfer cement
  • Prevents air gaps caused by expansion and contraction cycles
  • Provides added protection from mechanical shock 
  • Ensures uniform application of heat transfer cement
  • Ease of installation reduces labor costs
  • Chemax non-hardening cements can be used on tracer lines when installed with Chemax CC channels
