Heat Absorbing Paste

Heat Absorbing Paste, heat blocking paste, heat insulating paste

Piocol Heat sink: Piocol heat sink is special chemical formulation which is designed for reducing the transfer of heat to a great extend. Piocol HEAT sink is an insulation compound with unique heat absorbing properties which insulate against heat transfer during welding, soldering, brazing or other heat treatment. The heat absorption properties protect closely soldered parts, valve gasketing, thin gauge metal, and other materials which could be damaged during repair or installation work. HEAT Sink is used to protect plastic drain pipes in close proximity to metal pipes being replaced or soldered. HEAT Sink prevents distortion to light gauge metals, protects rubber and plastic components, and painted or finished surfaces while soldering, brazing or welding.

This non-toxic material may be formed around or on the surface of metal, or spread onto surfaces which might be damaged by heat or flame during welding or soldering. It is easily removed by wiping with wet rags or running water.

Clean surface to which Heat Sink is to be applied, removing all dirt and grease. Apply a thick layer of Heat Sink (1/2″ to 3/4″ thick), completely surrounding the area to be welded or soldered.

Press tightly to remove air pockets and voids. Once repair is complete, remove Heat Sink with a damp rag or running water. Heat Sink should leave no stain or marks. Heat Sink contains no toxic materials and is harmless to skin. Heat Sink is nonflammable and gives off no toxic fumes when exposed to heat.

Piocol Heat Sink is used in welding, automotive, HVAC/R, plumbing and shipyard industries, as well as other specialized industries. Piocol Heat Sink will:

  • protect painted surfaces, wiring, tubing (plastic & rubber)
  • protect against distortion of welded stainless
  • prevent surface discoloration of welded stainless
  • protect surrounding surfaces from flame
  • prevent damage to valves in close proximity to weld area
  • prevent spatter from adhering to surrounding surfaces
  • prevent damage to adjoining valves and washers during sweating and soldering
  • protect surrounding surfaces from flame and heat
  • protect pipe insulation from flame and heat damage
  • protect bulkheads when welding and pipe sweating
  • protect cable from heat and flame during welding and plumbing repairs
  • protect valve gaskets during plumbing repairs

Sweating a pipe:

USE PIOCOL HEATSINK WHERE THERE IS A POTENTIAL DANGER FOR HEAT/SOLDER IN UNWANTED AREAS.

Soldered fittings, also called “sweat fittings,” are used to join copper pipes such as those commonly encountered in some in-wall tub/shower applications. Soldering a pipe joint or “sweating a pipe” is accomplished by heating a copper fitting with a propane torch until the fitting is just hot enough to melt metal solder. The heat draws the solder into the gap between the fitting and pipe to form a watertight seal. Though a strong and inexpensive method of joining copper pipes, soldering requires some skill and attention to safety. Flexible copper tubing can also be joined with compression fittings or flare fittings (these do not require soldering)

Piocol Heatsink is a heat absorbing paste that prevents surface heat from traveling to adjoining surfaces. Protects against damage caused by excessive heat from welding, soldering and other heat treatment.
