Johns Manville Presents Live Webinar: Understanding How Hydrophobic Insulation Impacts CUI

Johns Manville, March 3, 2019

As you explore your hydrophobic insulating options, you need to know exactly what you’re working with to ensure that you are capitalizing on the benefits of hydrophobicity without ignoring the potential pitfalls.

Join JM’s Marybeth Jones and Matt Ball for their live webinar on March 13th at 2:00 PM ET where they will discuss the details you need to know about hydrophobicity to ensure your systems are designed and installed with a robust defense against corrosion under insulation (CUI).

  • The webinar will cover the following topics before concluding with a live Q&A where you can bring your questions directly to our hosts:
  • How insulations are tested for water-repellency
  • The differences between hydrophobicity, water repellency, and water resistance
  • Different types of hydrophobic agents and how they are applied to insulation
  • What hydrophobic insulations are available to you
  • The difference between the XOX Corrosion Inhibitor® and hydrophobicity
  • Other steps to consider, beyond hydrophobicity, that can help protect your system from CUI

All participants will receive a Certificate of Completion that may be submitted for one professional development hour (PDH)*. To register for this webinar visit:
