As 2018 comes to a close, we’re taking a look at your favorite blogs from 2018. Below is a list of our 5 most popular blogs from the last year.

5.Considerations for Thin Blanket Insulations: Not all thin blankets are created equal, and we dive into precisely why in this blog. Read on for key details you need to keep in mind before selecting or specifying a thin blanket insulation material.

4. Mechanisms of Corrosion Inhibitors & How They Work: Earlier this year, we completed more long-term corrosion under insulation testing, and got a better look at how the XOX Corrosion Inhibitor® works in JM’s Thermo-1200™ Calcium silicate and Sproule-1200™ expanded perlite.

3. What JM Is Doing About CUI: As insulation is a key ingredient to CUI, JM believes that we have a responsibility to help contribute to part of the solution. We have taken several steps as a manufacturer that help in the battle against CUI, and we’ve outlined them here in our third most popular blog.

2. Steps to Reduce Insulation Drying Time: Earlier this year, we performed research on the efficacy of adding weep holes to insulation jacketing systems to promote faster drying times. The research demonstrated that weep holes have a significant impact on the drying time of saturated insulation.

1. Accelerated Corrosion Testing with Calcium Silicate & Perlite Insulations: There is a movement in the industrial industry toward long-term corrosion test methods that are more representative of “real-world” conditions. JM was the first manufacturer to test our thin blanket insulation, InsulThin® HT, under these conditions, and we continued this testing in 2018 with our calcium silicate and expanded perlite insulation products. Take a detailed look at the results of our latest tests to determine how Thermo-1200™ calcium silicate and Sproule-1200™ expanded perlite stacked up against the tested silica aerogel insulation specimen.
