CHILDERS CP-33 CHIL-OUT
INDOOR & OUTDOOR WATER BASED VAPOR RETARDER COATING

DESCRIPTION:
Childers CP-33 is a water-based vapor retarder coating for insulation on interior and exterior, low temperature and some dual temperature applications such as chilled water and refrigerated pipe lines, HVAC ducts and low temperature equipment. It is fast drying and forms a tough, flexible dry film which protects insulated surfaces and helps retard the flow of vapor through an insulation system. It has a smooth, creamy consistency that spreads easily and can be applied in a relatively heavy coating or brushed out into a thin, smooth film.

USES:
Childers CP-33 can be used on most types of thermal insulations in both cold and dual temperature service. It is used to vapor seal the seams, overlaps and punctures from pins and staples in FSK, ASJ, white paper and polyester vapor barrier facings on insulation boards, duct wrap and pipe covering. It may also be used to seal cut ends of insulation to prevent moisture ingress and fiber release. It is compatible with fiber glass, mineral fiber, cellular glass, polyisocyanurate, polyurethane, polystyrene, phenolic, rubber foam and other insulations.
