SMC Industries' Patented Reinforced Perlite Pipe Covering and Block

SMC Industries' AU-1200 is the only patented perlite pipe covering on the market. For enhanced durability and faster installation for both cyclic and continuous high-temperature applications up to 1200°F (650°C).

Features and Benefits of SMC AU-1200

SMC Industries produces expanded perlite reinforced block and pipe covering that is designed to meet your project specifications. See below why our long-standing customers trust SMC's line of thermal insulation products.


Reinforced for Durability

Novel formulation paired with patented reinforcement yields the strongest and most durable perlite silicate product on the market. 


Ease of Installation

AU-1200 is a preformed rigid insulation that is quickly and easily installed out of the box, reducing overall installed cost. 


Proven Defense Against CUI

Hydrophobic, non-wicking, and with leachable silicates proven to inhibit corrosion on the outer surfaces of piping and equipment.

Strict Quality Control

SMC Industries manufacturing processes ensures the highest quality products are shipped meeting or exceeding ASTM C610 standards.


Multi-Layer Applications

Multi-layer applications are designed to be easily nested without modification during installation for maximum thermal efficiency. 

Our Markets and Applications

SMC Industries has worked in a multitude of sectors specifying and supporting projects using our patented AU-1200 reinforced perlite pipe covering. Find your industry below to see how we can benefit you and your facility.

Oil & Gas and Petrochemical

Oil refineries and petrochemical processing plants trust SMC for their piping and fitting covers that reduce the risk of corrosion under insulation while maximizing energy efficiency.


LNG Processing and Production

LNG plants are commonly found in high-moisture geographic locations conducive to corrosion. Our hydrophobic insulation materials serve as a long-term solution within these facilities. 


Offshore Production

With a limited footprint, offshore platforms contain a large number of pipe fittings. Also located in harsh environments, this industry requires moisture-resistant, custom-fit thermal insulation.

Power Plant

Power Generation

Power generation facilities serve as a vital part of an infrastructure. Implementing SMC's patented fitting and piping covers can prevent future unit outages due to hidden maintenance and reliability issues.


Pulp and Paper Mills

Pulp and paper mills can be found in regions with high humidity and operate at process temperatures susceptible to corrosion under insulation (CUI). SMC's perlite and hydrophobic blankets come with a fast ROI.
