Heat-Absorbing Compound Blocks Heat Transfer Through Metal


Alvin Products of Everett, Massachusetts, recently released its heat-absorbing compound that protects metal from heat damage and prevents heat from traveling through the metal surface and potentially damaging or discoloring parts.

Alvin® Heat-Block is a compound formulated to eliminate and protect metal against heat damage and discoloration during brazing, soldering, welding, and other procedures. It is simple to use — just apply the heat-absorbing paste directly from the container onto the metal, and it will absorb and dissipate heat, preventing it from traveling through the metal surface.

Protecting parts in close proximity such as pipes, valves, internal gaskets, and other components that could be damaged during installation or repair work requiring heat applied by torch or a soldering iron, Alvin Heat-Block is a reusable water-based compound. This heat sink compound stops heat-related damages, including buckling, cracking, warping, and discoloration.

Alvin Heat-Block is offered in pint, quart, 1-gallon, and 5-gallon sizes. It cleans up with soap and water.
