MicroGuard® HVAC/R protective treatments are designed for use on heating and air conditioning equipment; coils, fins, tubes, fans and even cabinets. These products can be installed on units before installation or on previously installed field units with equal success. MicroGuard® HVAC/R protective treatments retard corrosion on the non-ferrous metal fins and tubes, thus, extending the life of the equipment asset and helping to maintain good air flow efficiencies. This fact has been substantiated by numerous salt chamber tests using ASTM B-117. Coated aluminum fin stock was subjected to well in excess of 6,000 hours in the salt spray chamber and showed no consequential degradation, due to corrosion; 30% better than our next closest competitor.
In addition, the cured film of MicroGuard® HVAC/R protective treatments will not support mold growth. The completely inorganic nature of the cured film presents no nutrient source for mold. Plus, the cured film exhibits a slight positive charge, which acts as a natural “repelling” action for mold spores, dirt and other organic debris, so fins and coils are more easily cleaned, during normal service maintenance cycles. This single important feature may be the most significant variable for maintaining better indoor air quality.
Further, testing by both independent third party sources and by numerous internal studies has shown that HVAC/R Units coated with MicroGuard® protective treatments will operate more efficiently and can save up to 15% or more in energy costs. Results can vary and periodic cleaning of the coils & fins will contribute to maintaining the efficient operation of the unit.
In addition to saving energy, the MicroGuard® clear treatment can also extend the operating life of the HVAC/R equipment asset. This is particularly true in coastal salt spray environments, arid desert environments or around heavily industrialized exposures. Anywhere corrosive environments can significantly shorten the life expectancy of HVAC/R equipment. MicroGuard® HVAC/R Clear Protective Treatments can be applied to equipment before installation, or in the field post installation with equal success. Energy savings and asset longevity make MicroGuard® the correct choice.
