Protecall Coatings Save Coils from Corrosion, Rejuvenate Existing Systems and Reduce Energy Consumption 12.5%
Traditional HVAC/R Coil Coatings are intended to protect coils against corrosion and premature life cycle failure while maintaining the systems design. Unfortunately, traditional coil coatings range from 2-12 mils thick, creating a insulating barrier to heat transfer efficiencies while disrupting laminar airflow over the fins and forgoing the system design efficiencies. Their design also provides an organic food source for mold growth.
Protecall’s HVAC/R Coil Coatings range from 6 microns to 1 mil in thickness while providing exceptional corrosion protection, reducing preventative maintenance and saving energy. MicroGuard Coatings are widely used by engineers, managers and owners to restore and rejuvenate partially deteriorated coils and equipment throughout their entire facility.

Case Studies – MicroGuard HVAC/R Coil Coatings
The Protecall Coil Coating Process
All HVAC coils are susceptible to corrosion from pollution, airborne chemicals in caustic environments, carbon from roads and automobiles, salt air in coastal environments, pollen and other environmental forces.
Protecall can effectively disassemble, clean, coat and protect HVAC/R coils with full coverage both in the field or in coating centers located throughout the USA.
Protecall coil coatings provide complete coil protection on both new and existing equipment without any measurable reduction in heat transfer and are warranted up to 5 years. Protecall coil coatings reduce energy consumption up to 16% and increase a units useful life up to twice its originally anticipated life.
Coil Coating’s Benefits Are Recognized by National Retailers
Condenser coils and HVAC systems were failing and required premature replacement at retail locations in coastal environments. Energy efficiency loss was occurring for a number of reasons, including abraded acid washed (cleaned) condensers were easily becoming clogged and corroded, fins were separating from coils, and conductive heat transfer was reduced.
All new HVAC equipment within 10 miles of a coast or in corrosive environments are now treated with MicroGuard® AD35 on their Condenser coils, evaporator coils and cases.
Coil fins are not separating from tubes, resulting in the retention of conductive heat transfer and designed energy efficiency. Units are easy to clean using mild “green” cleaning products and low pressure water.
Protecall HVAC Coil Coatings Put to Test at Jacksonville Bleach & Paper Plant
Highly corrosive coastal environment with co-located bleach and paper manufacturing plants plagued by premature deterioration and corrosion of all equipment due to exposure to salt air, SO2 & HCL.
MicroGuard was put to the test on two portable window HVAC units that would normally corrode beyond recognition in just a few months. One unit was coated with a siloxane coating and the adjacent unit was not.
MicroGuard coated unit has no recognizable deterioration after 27 months of operation in this environment and the unprotected unit was deteriorated beyond use in 3 months.
