A LEADING INNOVATOR
IN INDUSTRIAL INSULATION

FOR OVER 40 YEARS

 

 

1977

SMC manufactures Perlite Silicate Pipe & Block Insulations for a Wilmington, Delaware firm with manufacturing rights to a patent held by E.I. DuPont Co.  This product is a replacement for asbestos-based insulation which has been discovered to cause health problems. 

1988

SMC sells our WR-1200 formula for perlite pipe covering and block, retaining the rights to WR-1200 for the manufacture of fitting covers and accessories.

2002

Construction begins on our new, state-of-the-art Molded Perlite Fitting Cover manufacturing plant in Houston, TX.

This plant is highly automated and computerized, allowing us to offer our customers quick turn around on a wide range of product sizes.

2017

SMC’s AU-1200 Reinforced Perlite Pipe Covering hits the market, continuing SMC’s role as a leader of innovation in industrial insulation. 

1979

SMC requests and is granted a license to manufacture this product ourselves, with the goal of drastically improving quality. 

At our Malvern, PA facility, we test over 100 formulations to develop one with far superior handling, thermal performance, hydrophobicity, and protection against CUI. 

1995

SMC opens our Houston, TX warehouse to stock over 1,000 Molded Perlite Fitting Covers in the Gulf Coast market.
 

2008

With Aerogel blanket insulation now on the scene, SMC innovates a cutting-edge technology that allows this high-performing material to be fabricated for out-of-the-box installation for all parts of industrial insulation systems. 

 

Our custom aerogel insulation is designed to deliver unparalleled accuracy of fit with fast and easy installation. 

1980s

SMC develops our WR-1200 formula—the thermal insulation industry’s first ever water-repellent Perlite Silicate Insulation.

1997

Construction begins on a new expanded production facility in Malvern, Pennsylvania.

This 25,000 sq ft building allows us to consolidate all product lines under one roof.

2010

After meeting a high demand for WeatherJacs® for a decade, SMC sells its metal products division to Ideal Products of Canada Ltd. 

For more information on WeatherJacs® and Ideal Products visit idealproducts.ca.

1982

To meet customer needs, SMC introduces an expanded line of incremental sizes of PVC Cut & Curl Jacketing.

2000s

SMC invents WeatherJacs®, the first and only mold-produced large-bore metal elbows that, along with Gary Sproule’s patented weather seam, are far better designed to protect against CUI than the industry’s current gored elbows.

2015

Always seeking ways to improve industrial insulation, SMC revisits the formula for perlite silicate, which has gone unchanged since we sold our original formula 27 years prior. 

SMC invents AU-1200, an improved formula with a patent-pending reinforcement system for unprecedented durability. 

 

SMC begins an aggressive expansion for the manufacture of AU-1200, including a 60,000 sq ft addition to the Houston Division's current plant.
